Hello Acworth/Marietta /Atlanta area

Hey all! My name is William. Just wanted to say hi to everyone since I have been lurking for a while now. I have a bunch of bikes but new to the Strom thing.
I ride a lot and I'm enjoying my new toy.
If you guys ever want to ride feel free to hit me up.
I'm a fabricator and own a shop in the Marietta area, so I can ride anytime (love self employment).

Welcome neighbor...
I'm in John's Creek... just south of you.

I don't quite have the 'anytime' freedom to ride (but a few in the area do). However, I'm usually good for at least one day over the weekends...

Nice to meet you, cool deal I actually just got a house in Cumming and will be moving in on friday. Puts me much closer to the mountains.. exit 16 on 400.
We have to plan a day trip but I'm game for more.
Got my 650 about 4 months ago and it has already been to VA twice

Hello from Acworth.

I've ridden BRP from Cherokee up just past Mt Mitchell. It's a great ride. There's quite a few back roads along the BRP that are great as well.

I look forward to meeting and riding with you sometime.


Do you ride pavement only?

Excellent. I've been wanting to do more off road riding on my strom.

I have a couple of dirt routes, but i'm always looking for more...
