    Talking Hang, Ride, Repeat

    I went to a get-together over the weekend with some folks from the ADVrider forum.

    It was at the Two Wheels Only motorcycle campground in Suches, GA.

    I rode over Friday and arrived just after it got dark. It was c-c-cold and windy, and a little bit of snow blew a coupleof times in the evening and overnight. I think that the temperature dropped to about 28 or so.

    Saturday morning.


    There was a freeze warning through most of the morning, so we didn't get out on the roads until around noon.



    The guy on the right -- with the blue dragon sticker on his helmet -- is CalicoJack, who is a member here and who also hung at TWO in his Hennessy.






    CalicoJack's rig is under the blue tarp behind the nutter on the 100 cc two-stroke.


    That picture was after I re-hung my tarp closer to the ground Saturday to get a little more wind protection. It wasn't windy Saturday like it was Friday night, but the temperature did drop to 21 or 22.

    Saturday evening after our ride, we had a bit of a feast.
    Walt, the guy nearest the camera, is tending to some duck breasts stuffed with cream cheese and a slice of jalapeno and wrapped in bacon while Billy is putting the finish touches on a Boston butt that he smoked. It was some gooood eatin'.


    Sunday, I packed up my gear, said goodbye to my buds, and managed to make the three-hour trip home in about six hours. North Georgia has some great curvy roads.





    It was a great weekend of hangin' and ridin'.

    It has been a few to many years since I MC Camped.

    One trip home started out nice coming from the mountains
    onto the flat, and into Calgary . . .

    . . . until it started to snow.

    Before long there was 2" of slush on the hwy,
    I slowed down to about 40mph and was scared . . .

    . . . and then a guy on a bike like yours shot by me at at least 70mph

    I got to town with 3" of ice on my shins.


    Brrrrrrr, thanks for the pics.

    Thanks for all the replies, guys. It was a great time.

    Pan, I love camping off the bike. I wonder if that has anything to do with the twin facts that I love camping, and I love motorcycling. The Strom is a great bike. 650 or 1000?

    Bradley, that sounds like quite an adventure. Glad you made it home safe and sound.
