I hope that's not your first bike. If it is and we need to get you in the dirt.

Yep, it's my first bike. I was fairly concerned about the maint. at first, but I've already added a dual sport kit, replaced the clutch pack, changed the oil, bled the brakes, and checked the valves. It is a very easy machine to work on.

I am planning on getting up to Noontootla and Amicolola on Sunday if I can.

The guys here are REALLY nice.

Man, here I am thinking 'cool, a new bar I haven't heard of' and I finally get the lowdown on where (and what) it is. Yeah, that clue went over my head.

I gotta admit, you stumped me on that one. I had to lean on a friend who grew up here.

My buddy's response is classic:

"Yeah, I was a little hesitant to divulge my knowledge of the place, but it's a great way to cut through to miss traffic on ....."

I should have time this afternoon to go snag this one. I have another tag lined up that I'd like to explore, so fair warning to anyone considering it--get off yo asses!

(I rode about 300 miles yesterday so I have a good excuse for not getting this.)

Jeebus, I just thought it was a funny tag. I didn't mean to kill the game.

No, just busy!

I stopped by to say hi to the boys tonight

Damn that place is hidden! I used to go to Royal Bagel years ago (and Ansley Wine Merchant--best wine store ever) and never knew it was there.



...and I also had time to get the next tag

More to follow.
