    i'd seen it on craigslist & didn't need it, but it sounded to good to be true

    it was


    but it did make for a long ride tru atlanta during the end of rush hour traffic and pouring rain

    bill rode with me, so after our disappointment

    we did stop off in newman on the way home at a fancy resturant for a later supper

    then we found a cigar store

    so it wasn't a total waste :D

    Definitely one of the best views in Georgia. The only better view might be watching those tubers go by:D

    at the garage to check the air i decided to wipe the dust off it

    but never checked the air

    when it was wiggling in the curves i decided i might out to check the air

    That is a cool place. Went up there with a local a little while back. I can't imagine going up it before it was paved.

    I have to say a couple of those turns were steep and intense for this Florida boy on his sport touring bike. I am just glad nobody was coming down while I was going up!

    i did the old debate about going for it or not and decided not, before i lost site of my driveway i was glad i didn't do it

    i mean it poured, cars were pulled over on the side of our little 2 lane


    this was a construction site after it let up a little

    thx,

    we adopted her brother when he was 13, he'd been in a little bit of trouble & was kicked out of school

    was a sudden and big life style adjustment

    he came out pretty good, but i wish we'd got an earlier start :deal

    saturday morning i was planning on riding up to nottarally, hanging out and maybe joining a ride

    https://advrider.com/f/threads/10th-nottarally-this-year-nottardv-october-1-4-2020.1411195/


    went to bed semi early friday night then got a call sprinkler dry system in the building i'd just finished had gone off

    so up and away i went

    i got back home after 3 so i slept in

    and saturday afternoon :ricky

    as i pulled out of the drive i looked down and thought i need gas

    so rolling on taking pictures, on the other side of cleveland right before i started up the mt the gas light came on

    a quick turn on what ever the connector road between 129 and 60

    this is where i realized my chip was locked and i wasn't taking pictures after all :doh

    back on 129
