    I was just gonna ask the same thing.
    I suggest that we lessen the chance that we may somehow miss each other downtown and meet somewhere in West Augusta and then ride to the taproom together. Anyone want to pick a meeting place and a time?
    Who is in?

    OK, I'll be there. Probably on my SV650 as the lights on my DR are not exactly street legal.
    Look for this bike...

    I now know of 2 gas stations that sell ethanol free gas.
    The first I already mentioned is about 1 mile south of exit 5 of I 20 in SC on the corner of Ascauga Lake Rd.
    The second is also on Ascauga Lake Road, about 5 miles further down, at the intersection with Bettis Academy Rd. This is south from Exit 11 about 2 miles.
    Also, the gas here was $3.59 today!
    My SV is running fine again with the cornless gas.

    Funny, I couln't make the Sweetwater Tap Room last night, but I had the Suzuki parked on Warren Road at a buddy's house.

    Any reports on the Tap Room?

    How'd the Sunday morning ride go?

    I went exploring the forest service roads off Woodlawn...gravel was not fun, but there were a few off-shoots that were more like dirt logging roads that went down to Stevens Creek then climbed back up to the road. Looked like you could explore back there a while. And there was one short, but fun leg that took me out to the intersection of Woodlawn & 28 that was dirt/pinestraw with some fun little sections of it. But it was probably only about a mile long.

    Small turnout at the Taproom. 3 AARSEs - Monkeyboy, Canoli and TSPKTM.
    It didn't take long for Canoli and Monkeyboy to find out that there was no food at the Taproom, so we quickly moved nextdoor to Nacho Mamas. We mostly discussed our common interest in all things two wheeled. After eating, we moved to the sidewalk and continued "mototalk" while standing around our bikes.
    We did not make specific plans, but we all agreed that we should get together for a group ride soon.

    How 'bout Saturday, August 16th in the AM? Does that date work for people?

    I'm up for going anywhere...how are the trails at Parsons Mountain or Cedar Springs? It looks like they're only about 10 miles each... I'm up for other suggestions. I haven't really been anywhere yet. A longer ride is cool too, just trying to be back to the lake by 6:00. The Augusta Canoe & Kayak Club is having a cookout/twilight paddle if anyone out there is into other outdoor fun too.

    As uncommon as the name is, there is a chance we are distantly related. I'm not from Augusta though. My wife grew up on Skinner Mill and we are in the family house just down from Scotts Way.

    I haven't ridden as much as I would like the last few years, but it's time to break out. I have a Bandit 12 that needs carb work, a YZF600 for track days and a KTM LC4 for the backroads. In fact, the reason the B12 has been sitting is that the KTM is too much fun in the mountain twisties. Too painful to ride up there, but a blast when there.

    Never know, had to ask.:D Max and I were real good freinds, then he went to college, I went to work....

    Back to bidness,,, glad you got directed our way, and as soon as everyone gets things put together, I'm sure that LC4 will see a bunch of riding time. Unfortunately, my time is at a premium for the next few months, helping the wife deal with Chemo,and up-coming surgery, so I'm just sorta a "pot stirrer" :pot rat now. But I'll be out there with y'all sometime soon, and hopefully, regularly after October. So don't give up on me, when I don't always show at the meetings, or make some of the rides.....most of the rides. I WILL be there.

    Sounds like fun, but work is on the schdule. Besides, I'm sure you guys would rather get to know my skills before heading to the highlands. I've had too many of my own rides cut short from folks that didn't know their own limitations. I'm competent on asphalt not so much so off road.

    Yeah I thought that the place served burgers... man I was pissed. TSPKTM left out some good parts:

    1) Me and my monkee has this map that marks a ton of off road trails in the area. I had no idea that this area had so many cool places to ride.

    2) TSPKTM is running an enduro event in the near future and he also knows about a ton of trials that are different then the ones on the "magic map".

    3) Both of those guys had SWEET lookin bikes.

    As far as the Sunday ride went, Buster and I checked out some fire roads he knew and then we headed down the fire roads of Sumpter NF(yes the kind we are allowed to ride on). We did about 80 miles before it got too hot to be enjoyable.

    I say for the next "meeting" we do it at the SNO-CAP or hit HOOTERS right after we go muddin :lol3

    It was cool to meet and ride with you guys. I cant make the 16th ride but I'll be around most other weekends.
