Kevin-
Less than 1 hr from my home (most of N GA is) and you didn't call. I'm crushed. Where did y'all meet- Kennesaw?
Did you get to Suches to play on "the Loop"?

Sorry, Ace. Too busy grinding down floorboards on your superb roads to keep track of where we rodes. We stayed at the Kingwood Resort in Clayton and did an eastward loop. I remember seeing some sort of sign for Suches, tho I don't know exactly where we were.

I don't want to spoil things for Ace, but any of you readers would be wise to schedule a trip around his area. Fantastic roads among the rolling hills, and Oct seems to be a perfect time to visit. Warm daytime temps, almost no bugs, and a lovely display of fall colors on the lush trees.

I know I'll be dating myself here (what? No corsage?) but since when did 920 cee cees become "small"? That thing's a friggin tank...not compaired to the other mega cruisers, but it's still a BIG BIKE. Hey, that might be a good name for a magazine...

Well, I didn't (and won't) call it small. And I disagree with Star's term of "entry cruiser." However, it's much easier to handle than a big cruiser. The bike's greatest strength is that it looks bigger (and more substantial and expensive) than it rides or actually costs.

Sorry, I mixed up the displacement sentence "belies its relatively small displacement" with the size of the bike. Those anti-psycotic drugs I got from KPaul are kicking in I guess...

You just have to watch out for 2 things this time of year:

Tour D'Georgia Bicycle Race - absolutely FORGET trying to get anywhere, or do anything when this is going-on. Sure, GADOT sweeps the bikeroute roads free of gravel and sand, but both lanes are littered with ******* bicyclists ten-abreast.

Blue-haired Leaf Maggots. They pay less attention to other traffic than the ******* bicyclists, if that's possible. Only, they're driving 2-1/2-ton Killing Machines disguised as rolling roadblocks..........

I've never met elsewhere people as friendly as those that actually LIVE in Appalachia, though.
