Thumbs up North Atlanta / Alpharetta Area Riders

If anyone is ever looking for someone to ride with, my sked is usually pretty good on the weekends. I live in the Alpharetta/Johns Creek area and am definitely a newbie at 51 yrs old (never too old!). New to V-Strom and new to riding. Took the MSF course, got my license and have been enjoying EVERY minute I can squeeze in to ride. Since I bought my bike in Nov 2009, I've tried to absorb as much information / knowledge as I can from forums such as this, ADV Rider, etc. in addition to riding experience which is so much fun. My wife has even learned to deal with the "farkle fever" I have acquired and the UPS/Fedex deliveries which was a huge step for her. Anyway, anyone interested in riding sometime don't hesitate to let me know.

Woodstock Strom Rider

Sounds good, if we can get a break from this lousy weather we've had for what seems like EVERY weekend lets connect for a ride. That would be great.

Hey ckellyne and RoadDust !

You might want to keep an eye on the following for local rides;

https://www.stromtrooper.com/showthread.php?t=26691

Not always much activity but I've found several folks that will make a run with you at times. I'm sure when it dries up and warms up there will be more riding.

Ride Safe!

I'm in Buford, near the Mall of Ga.

I try to do the Cerohala Skyway and the Dragon a few times a year. It's a good combo and it can be done in 2 days w or w/o passenger.

I prefer w/passenger

I haven't ridden Cherohala Skyway "yet". I'm planning to attend the V Rally at the Ironhorse in Stecoah, NC May 13th thru 16th with a friend of mine. My first rally, looks like fun and should be an cool experience! We're talking about riding the Dragon on the way up and back since it looks like it is on the way. Should work out well. I need to change out my tires soon on my 2006...has 8k miles and my buddy said it would be better to get some new skins on now. The OEM's have tread, but the rear tire thread has seen better days. Don't want to risk it. I'm going to put on a set of Metzeler Tourance's...that seems to be the overwhelming tire of choice on the forums since all my riding is "street" right now and it apparently can do some gravel off-road (within reason). Thinking of having the guys at Moto400 change them out. Seems like a good shop there.

Cherohala Skyway is an easy one day ride. You can even add the Tail of the Dragon and still do it in one day. Lots of good roads up in the area.
