Thanks

Well, looks like I am going out on the 690 tomorrow somehwere......as it is now I will go by myself (on my bday) But good news is I have brand new rubber on the bike so it should be fun. New batteries in the SPOT.

So, if you can pick up the desperate plea for a riding mate tomorrow, check in here and let me know. I can only assume the snow is gone up north (Suches area) cause that's where I am headed, I think.....

No plans, just riding, thinking and looking for a day of exploration. Would love some company...........lemme know.

I am headed to the sack now, it's late. I will check back here in the morning.

Peace,

Snow is not gone. South sides are pretty good. Last night we got a fine mist of rain that has frozen. Lots of loose gravel on the roads.

Andrew and I had a good ride on 690s down south. No snow!! It was good to get out.

We did around 200 miles and I found out that my stock seat really sucks!! My arse is still sore!

Good ride Chris- just the exploring of Central GA was cool, I never spent any time down there. Its worthy of some further exploring, as there's lots of cool looking trails and off shoots as well as lots of interesting things to see- old plantations, turn of the century cabins, & some nice scenery.

HP2 and G450X are sitting down at the shop and I'm home up in Woodstock, don't think the R12ADV is what I'm up to taking out up that way so I guess I'll continue on with the chores around the house

Happy Birthday Factory Frank! BTW - based on what I saw in North Fulton and Jasper yesterday, I don't think the snow is gone up north. The 690 should handle it though. Have fun!

snow gone in the mountains

I think this rain coming in will help if it stays warm enough but there will be snow in the shadows on the north side till mid april I bet!!


happy birthday!

I bought a tagged 2007 WR250F from a guy in Ohio; no problem to transfer the title to Georgia. I'm sure you can find a 450F in Ohio if need be.
