Well this was one of the most memorable trips the Georgia Riders have done. We had it all.....interstate, LOTS of twisties, country roads, a CRASH, tons of laughs, and many memories.

I'll let Chad share the route with y'all (thanks for planning bro) but we did parts of Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Alot of miles were done in two days.....somewhere around 800.

I met some new riders and made some new friends. As ususal, the 109 drew a TON of looks and questions where ever we went.

Nobody in our group had any issues with their bikes....even the one bike that was crashed was still rideable.

On with the pictures:

There were BUGS GALORE on this trip. Here is a HUGE grasshopper that got sucked up by Alex's intake:

Roadside in a Tennessee Valley:




Nathan and Chad. Demetri from Tennessee escorted us to a state park somewhere...LOL. The views in this gorge were stunning and the park had some good food, too. It was nice riding with you, Demitri :bigthumbsup:.

Chad's bike just about didn't need a kickstand:D






Early morning clean-up:


There was a Smart Car rally at the Fontana Village. Dude....you just got passed by a 3 cylinder....LOL.

A cool seat on a guy's 109. He was the only 109 we saw at the Dragon that wasn't in our group:


Phat or Fat?

THAT TRIP WAS DA' BOMB!!!! :doorag:...:bigthumbsup:

I did 801 miles total and had a terrific time. We came, we saw, we rode like we stole it! Got to see some new roads for the first time north of Chattanooga yesterday and then enjoyed some of my favorite stomping grounds in NC today as well. I must admit I was dog tired from riding from 6am yesterday and finishing the days ride at dusk on the Tail of the Dragon :eek:. But I had my riding energy back today after a good nights sleep (......what was all the banging sound going on in the next room :eek:) and really loved the ride on Hwy 28 & Hwy 197 today. My pegs were whitehot trying to keep up with the Freak Lucky06. :D

Of course all the M109 guys were great. Like Bobby said lots of good times & memories & funny little side stories such as:

Has anyone seen Athomas?
Tuta has a new name and it's "U-Turn".
Latino heat?

Definitely have to do it again, as least a long day ride in October up there for sure.

I'm still grinning!

:D:D:D:D I'm really glad I got the opportunity to ride with this bunch. I can't remember a better day on the bike. These guys can flat out ride and they're not bad to hang out with either. I hope to do it again real soon!:bigthumbsup:

Hey Nathan! I wonder how hot the Fed-ex guys pegs were after he spanked our butts up HWY30?:eek: If I hadn't seen it I wouldn't have believed it but a fedex van smoked us through some of the best curves in Tennessee.:dontknow: The driver probably rides a Harley and figured his delivery van was his best chance to beat a 9.:redfaced:

He was definitely Hauling the Mail!!! But at the same time give me both lanes of road and lets see what happens!! What ya want to bet he won't be driving for them when he hits someone in the other lane going 15+ mph of the speed limit!!
