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.
