    Cool, getting a good group here. Weather is a little gray this morning, hopefully we'll have clear skies tomorrow.

    Hey guys, I enjoyed the ride with you and look forward to tagging up again soon. I'm too old and have too much arthritis to do any knee dragging--even on a track, but I love riding that Tuono!

    Great meeting you Wallace, & everyone else. I had a blast. I'm arthritic also, so I can relate. Look forward to doing it again.

    We rode the Wings up to the Cherohala yesterday - 19 degrees when we left the house so a bit brisk for the Aprilia's.......only got up to 27 on top of the mountain.

    Lots of salt and some sand, no gravel or cinders up there - none on 68 going up to Tellico either. Bikes were really nasty when we got back to Cartersville so had to spend some time getting as much of the salt off as we could. 340 miles roundtrip and no issues. Saw three other bikes all day long, none on the Cherohala/Tellico area. High pressure was sitting right on top of us all day and it was clear as a bell for miles around. Extremely low humidity so even though it was cold it could have been worse.

    This pic was taken at about 4,300 feet elevation.

    Hi all,
    Setting up a ride for Sunday.
    Prolly meet in Canton, ride up over Ft. Mtn, down Hwy 60 to Suches, back over Burnt Mtn. If we have the time, up and down 129....

    wanna go?

    Caveat.... Generally a rapid pace...

    let me know!

    Bill, what time wheels rolling and where in Canton? Sounds like a nice route. I haven't been through Ft. Mountain/Hwy.52 in a while.
