Michael, like you said it's a small world and I will probably be up your way again in the fall , when we head for Andrews. Maybe we can get together. Hopefully we can have another get together with the group before then .

For those of you that inquired about the bags I have on my bike..

http://www.mutazu.com/products.php?cat_id=7&menu=Hard Saddlebags&product_id=101&s=prod.php

I see that the price has gone up since I purchased my set last year. Current price looks to be $270 -- And as reminder, the stock lights that come with it are a pain, and simply put, won't work the way you would like them to.

Matt at BDS Cycles spent a considerable amount of time getting them 'right' for me. The end result was that he replaced the LED's with trailer lights and added a few extra touches. They now act as turn signals (having removed the stock ones, he was able to mount the bags closer to the bike), and they have a flashing brake light (blinks 3 times when brakes are applied).

As for the pictures, I spent about 2 hours last night resizing the images and getting them uploaded (in two different locations). I'll not duplicate it by posting to this board as well, but I'll give you the direct link to the high resolution images.

To view the other 30+ images, just change the last two numbers on the end of the link. 20011 would become 20012 to view the next one in line. There are a total of 42 pictures from the event yesterday.

Thanks,

Definitely...That's good riding there. From Anderson, the Helen, Blairsville, Blood Mtn, Lake Burton, Turner's Corner, Suches etc, is all easily done in a day.

I would enjoy getting together with y'all.

If y'all want to include the GA people & do a Helen ride sometime that would be fun too. That way Hector will have a place do to some shopping & fill that trailer up. :mrgreen:

Rush-1300R - thanks uploading the pictures. For some strange reason I think this is the best one.



that's a pretty man right there. :yikes: :yikes:

later

Michael

All, had a great time yesterday and I want to thank Noangel (Carl) and Madness (Joe) for making it happen, great job! Hope to do it again sometime soon, life is too short and doing things like this make it much more enjoyable and remember able.
Carl- enjoyed riding with you and we need to get together on some more local rides.
Joe- Thanks for looking at my bike and the vibration. It is good to know that it is just in the pipes, guess I will just look at it as "good vibrations".
Rush- Thanks for taking and posting the pics. It was nice meeting you and the wife. You have a nice ride, and it is pretty cool that the wife enjoys her own ride as well. Need to step her up to an X though, lol.
You all take care till we meet again.
