Helen is a neat town. sorta like a small (very small) Gatlinburg. If you go pay very very close attention to the one peice of advice I am giving you... They have a parking law that they enforce heavily, Your bike MUST be fully in its parking space including the kickstand and parking is a premium. If the kickstand is on the line you will get a ticket. When you put several bikes in a spot, they all have to be within the box or the one beyond the half point of the line even the kickstand again will get a ticket. If you argue the ticket, it will be marked "court only" and you have to come back.

Ask any wait staff or resident there, it is the oddest thing but it will piss you off. 12 years as :cop: and I still think its amazing.

I will miss that by a couple of weeks, I'm going to be in Helen over Labor day.
It is a neat place, built like a german town, pretty nice but pricey compared to other towns in the area because it is primarily a tourist town.

It was nice meeting you yesterday Goose. The weather did not cooperate at all until later in the afternoon then it finally blew through and got nice outside.

Hopefully we can get together on the bikes and do some actual riding up in your neck of the woods this fall. :bigthumbsup:

It was great to meet you as well!! How much later did you guys hang around for before leaving?


Taking a day in up in the mountains with fellow Georgia riders would be an awesome idea :bigthumbsup: I'm all for it and would love to show you guys some of those roads you've been missing!

And by the way, I took your advise and spent this afternoon removing the baffles from the stock mufflers. What a pain in the a**!! But it's done and so far I love it :D That was just letting it run in the garage, the real test will be during my commite tomorrow.

Sweet! Well Bobby got me started on it and now the de-baffling craze is running rampant!!!! I knew you'd like the sound and you'll love it out on the open road. Glad you got it done.

We hung out for another hour or so then headed back down through Atlanta. We got to ride together today down to Pine Mountain and it was sunny the whole time.

Looking forward to Fall and some mountains rides! :doorag:

You can say that again!!! I finally got out and stretched her legs yesterday since my issue and it was hot and miserable!! It was tolerable once I was moving at a good pace but anytime I had to stop it sucked!!

Bring on the Fall temps!!
Too bad you didn't call. I went on a 100 miler huntin' for some action. Shame we couldn't have hooked up.
