Anyone is welcome to come along. Not planning to parade and will ride our own rides and group back up at intersections. Don't have a route, probably decide that tomorrow morning, but will likely be FS roads North and East of Chatsworth in and around the Cohuttas. I know I can knock out around 70-80 miles of good FS roads in that area without backtracking or pavement.

Kirk, Beau, Patty, RC, HONCHO, and many others, any of you guys interested and available?


Nice evening shaping up here in the Cohuttas. Been wanting to try this brand and run across it today looking for some liquor cabinet supplies. These folks seem to know what they're doing. Great sipping.


In...if I can drag my ass out of bed early enough...been on the West Coast too much lately!!!

So I went out get acquainted with my new bike this morning. My official review is:

But I couldn't get this old movie line out of my head... In the movie "All The Pretty Horses," (great movie, by the way http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yygkQ8SjjQk ) Matt Damon says to his boss's daughter, "You're fixin to get me in trouble."





She just smiles real sweet and inocent-like, and says, "You are already in trouble."





And Sean, Charlie, the SC side of Tugaloo is just what we've been looking for (except I'll hate seeing all the new brush scratches on the Berg).

"ktmexcrider" aka Dave and I are running a combo of dirt and street tomorrow. Not sure where we are going. Wherever. Maybe Tellico Plains. Maybe not. Might be back early, maybe late. I'm on my 950, Dave on his 990.

If interested hit me up. We are meeting at my house in Dawsonville at 9/9:30.

Cheers,
Glad you made it back okay, Mitch. I hope the brake problem is nothing big or expensive.

Enjoyed the ride guys. Sorry again about the mix up at the end.
