Mr_McBrides Group Ride Exploring backroads near Lake Ocoee

Who's up for a little adventure ride?

How about a route containing 293 miles of mixed surface roads in North East Ga & Tn? This route also contains some fire / forest service roads as well.

The route starts in Woodstock, Ga and ends in Canton, Ga. This will be a long ride, 11-12 hours. Bring your hydration packs.

If this ride is too long for anyone PM me as there are several points where the route could be broken up or anyone could drop off early if they don't a full day to ride.

Anyone interested?

I always enjoy your rides. Things happen. It could have been a lot worse. Hopefully I'll be joining you on the slab on a Connie.

I'm thinking about a wr250r next spring. The katy M 690 enduro has my eye as well, but that bike is about twice the cost of the lil blue bike.

When are you going? I live in Canton and have several friends with Stroms that should be able to make the trip, too.
