TN Hwy 30 Run 4/12/14

This ride is overdue. Never happened in 2013.

Weather should be nice, but if it turns out to nasty, we'll reschudle. No need for a repeat of the famous 2011 run.

This is the forth (?) annual TN Hwy. 30 run. This is a full street ride which is typically held at a brisk pace and covers many, many miles. Expect limited stops, good food, great fellowship and plenty of twisties. 600cc or bigger need apply for this one. Dual sports welcome. Smaller DS will not keep up for on this one.

Two up welcome and we'll have riders of all skill level. Bring your camera, bring your spouse and bring your wallet cause yer buying my lunch.

Route is counterclockwise and starts in Elijay. We'll meet at Hardees in Elijay and kick stands up at 7:30am. We'll have lots of ground to cover and plenty of pretty sites to see so bring your camera.

Hang on there, sport model........you SAY the route starts in Ellijay, but I think your map shows Chatsville. This can cause EXTREME embarrassment and harassment......DAMHIK!

If you're going to join us, we can pick you up somewhere along 52 in Chatsworth. We typically go through Spring Place instead of going by the Hardee's in Chatsworth.

I noticed yesterday that the fuel storage tanks at New Hope Grocery on 52 west of Ellijay were being dug up so I don't know if they will have gas available there tomorrow morning or not. That's where I'm planning to meet unless I get up early enough to run on down to Ellijay Hardees for my biscuit and gravy.

Looks like a fantastic day for a ride tomorrow.

There will be no "blasting" on this ride. All rules of the road are to be followed. What do you take us for, some group of hoodlums?

"Speed Limits-R-Us"

I believe it was Gruney who said that.

I actually washed the GS today. Ready to roll.

Yep, No way we'll be any earlier than that.

Kevin, see you at New Hope Grocery 7:45. Don't bother stopping, just make sure I see you and I'll fall in at the rear.

There's some trash in the road right at the Youth Ministry/Cohutta Lodge entrance.

Gentleman- It was a pleasure riding with you fine fellows today. I was long overdue for a run like that. Thanks for making it out.

Dave- It was great to meet you. I trust you had a safe trip back and made it in time for supper?

Fido- Was your throttle sticking when we traveled down 315? It seemed like the GS "came to life"?

MB- Where was the GS I saw headed back across Fort Mt. today? Good grief! You definitely know that road.

And that section of 30 from Athens on... BALOWS!

We need to look for a better route from Dayton to Etowah. Other than that and the slab to get to I-24/US 41 it was a fantastic ride.

Thanks for lunch, Honcho, and the good pace all day.
Dave, good to meet you, and following you on the KTM a lot of fun today.

Yes, 315 and 30 Reliance to 64, Holy Cow !! Always, always a blast chasing you and Fido, who I hadn't seen in a while either. He was having so much fun he rode past his normal exit there at Tenga.

Beautiful weather, light traffic today considering how nice it was outside, especially coming across 30.

Oh, and I was blazing across Fort Mountain before you were born.

Something like this.
