Riding to Columbia SC

Ohhh, I almost forgot. Topdog may meet us at the rest area by Chester SC on I-77 South Side. Topdog, we should be there around 9:15--9:30 or so. What will you be riding?

Columbia SC Ride

All went real well. We rode down and had a 45 miniute ride for TopDog's Dad. We don't have any photos of the day. TopDog and family all had cameras running. We really enjoyed the ride and look forward to doing it again sometime.

Scott & Laura

Big Mike, My Brother Steven, My Grandfather, and Frank, planning the route.


Getting Grandpa settled in the Hack.


Mike's rig.


Frank's toy. RD350 2 stroke.


Me, my mom. and my brother.


Ready for take off.


Big Mike and my Step Father Glen.

We went for a 45 minute circle, rode over a really cool dam at lake Murray, and stayed on the back roads. When we returned we admired the bikes, told some tales, and our new friends head back home. My brother and I also headed back to the ATL as is getting really hot. We got caught in a good lightning storm, but we made it home safe. Thanks Again to everyone that helped out. I know this had to be the best thing that has happened to my Grandfather in a very long time.

A good time was had by all, and Mr. Dunagan (Top Dog's grandfather) is a true rider. It was great to get a few minutes and talk with him about his riding days including the story of the wreck he had while piloting an old lightweight sidecar unit. I think he'd be a great guy to take out for a few cold ones and listen to a bit of history on "old school riding". I imagine he could tell quite a few tales of his days in the seat. I'm hoping if he feels the need to get out and ride some more that he'll give me a buzz since I'm here in town and we can head out.

It was good to meet everyone, and I was glad to be there.
