Well Mr. snooze must have wanted it pretty badly, he rode about 200 miles one way to pick it up. Good job snooze next time I guess that I am coming to HOTlanta. Well we met at one of the finest eateries in SC.

Snooze beat me there (aint that sad) he had 200 miles to go and I had 20. Felt bad about the lopsided miles but with my crazy schedule we just never could met up so he manned up and took the ride.

The Bikes

snooze is a pretty cool cat and I hate that he missed his beloved LSU getting beaten by Arkansas. (Nah I dont know who won just poking). Anyway hope U made it back for the hockey game and got home safe.
Well I rode the cache about 500 miles while I had it and here is where it rode.

Hopefully we will get more people invovled with this thing I would like to see it in Washington State around the spring time so I can have an excuse for a ride then . Keep it in the deep south until the Yanks thaw out and then we will take it up there to them .
Well good meeting U snooze hope U got home safely and your Predators won thier fight errrrr hockey game.

Cool deal and GREAT job guys . As for the miles , Snooze didn't really ride that much further than you did . I mean he did 200 , you did 20 . That's only ZERO miles difference isn't it ? LOL
RR is back home safe , so let's here from you Snooze . Post up your trip report and chime on in so we know you made it Bro . Pass that puppy on to some of those good old Ga boys . Hec , for that matter , recruit one of those sweet little Georgia Peached to haul it around for a while . LOL
Yep , Mr. Snnoze seemed to really want that Tag . He pm'd me with big hopes of his HOTlanta pals wanting a run at it too .

Thumbs up

Welllllll, my weekend in NC got rained out. I got to watch my Tigers and the Hogs trade a couple scores over lunch, then rush home in time to see the Tigers give up a last-minute touchdown. The game in my head along the road was WAY more interesting!

Would you believe that, on the day after Thanksgiving, traffic on the interstate was blowing along between 80 and 90 mph from Greenville to Atlanta?! There were LEOs, of course, but the five or six victims I saw didn't hold up the rest of us at all. The rain started not 25min from home, but I had the good luck to get off the road and suit up before it got miserable. The Wee got an even 50mpg, going 85mph with hard bags on.

I didn't get any decent pics taken except one of the fine eatery that hosted our gathering and one of Ridgerunner. Ridge's a great guy, and he made use of at least three different terrains getting from the street to the parking slot next to me! [ Studtrooper. ] Really glad to put a face and a handshake to a name. Apparently there's quite a little corps of Troopers in NC. NC's a good 2-3hrs for me, regardless of my route, but I'll have to get up there soon to meet some of you guys anyway. That's all you guys need, an Atlanta rider finding a NC tag!

Oh, apparently, I'm not tall enough to suffer a buffeting problem or heavy enough to hate the stock seat. :roll: whatever! I didn't touch the ground until I put hard cases on, so I'm just grateful to be upright at the end of the day.



I would NEVER have expected so many scooters in Travelers Rest, SC! Unbelievable. I've been at LSU, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech; I passed more scooters on the street in Travelers Rest. I feel a little bad for all the "200-mile" sympathy. It really only came out to about 160. I don't think I'm ready to ride this up to Washington state, yet.

Oh, Predators 4-3 in OT on a goal by Ryan Suter. Whale of a game. Lots of Nashville jerseys for an Atlanta home game.

Awesome Mr. Snooze . Glad you got back safe and LEO didn't give you one of his performance reports along the way . I worried a bit about you getting back , so glad your all home safe . Looks like you need to ride more often during the ball games so the excitement level isn't so disoppointing . LOL .

Yo Snooze ,

RR is just jealous . He's so tall he rides along cutting a groove in the ozone layer . Me ..... I'm so wide a shcool bus takes a ditch to let me around . I like the buffeting . Of course I don't have a choice so I like it . LOL

If you think you saw allot of scooters in Travelers Rest today , you oughta see this area in summer months . It's covered up with bikes . By the way , anybody know what time of year the Strom Rally is that happens at Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground ?

You ought to meet English Fred . It simply make me envious to see how he fits his Strom . That dude can't weigh 120 lbs and isn't very tall . Built like that and riding a D1k ? Not even fair . That D1K of Freds doesn't even know he is back there . That bike could drop a cylinder and half foul the running cylinder plug and still could blaze around me . Never mind Fred is an ol' Iron Man Time Trials racer .

Po-Sloke,
If you are referring to the Vstrom rally "East" I guess, it is May 14-16, 2009 at the Ironhorse Motorcycle campgrounds.
