Went to orthopedic surgeon today.  He says he thinks I tore my rotator cuff pretty bad.  MRI next to confirm then he wants to do surgery.  Boy thatís going to cut off my riding time with my arm in a sling.  Dang it.  He said he needs to fix it soon because itís been nine weeks since I hurt it.  Dang it dang it dang it!!!!

Hey Bob,         I just looked up the Georgia Sidecar Club rally, same weekend, at Wispering Pines Campground, Morgantown GA

So, if you are going to TWO, go north a bit more & see the rigs. They are usually in & out of TWO that weekend & all over N.GA

I just sold my  Guzzi ,  for the first time in years I'm down to one motorcycle.  Its a different feeling ... not having a choice of bikes to ride !

At 70 years old now , I'm going to have to stay with the lowest sitting , easiest ridding machine I can fine , but a few more HP would be nice .   Without going liquid cooled there aren't a lot of choices out there here in good old USA.   The one I have left now is a RE Meteor so I'll stick with it till something better comes along.   
I'm ridding to Suches this weekend (weather permitting) and hope to see some fancy Side-Car-Rigs !

Wow!  Sold the Guzzi!!!  Glad to hear youíre going to Suches this weekend.  Il see you there!  Due to my bad rotator cuff/shoulder I may not be able to ride to there, shoulder canít handle the curves.  So I may trailer the bike or just take my truck.  I still want to go even if I might not be able to ride to there.  Il be in cabin #2 and might have a guzzi flag hanging if I can find it.  Lol.  Stay well and see you this weekend.

Two wheels of Suches just posted that they are doing a catered dinner Saturday night for the dual sport riding club and dinner is closed to the public.  I donít know if that means campers not in dual sport club will have to go elsewhere for Saturday dinner or not????  I guess we will find out Saturday!  Maybe I need to bring bratwurst/pork n beans/chips/ grill/pots and pans/plates etc for Saturday dinner???  Il have a trailer so I could???

Iím bringing the food and kitchen supplies for Saturday nights meal for us.  The rest of the meals you will have to fend for yourself or (eat at lodge friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, lunch, Sunday breakfast).  The lodge is catering a meal to the dual sport riding club Saturday dinner, and thatís why Iím cooking Saturday dinner, but lodge will be serving Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast and lunch and Sunday breakfast.  I plan on arriving in my truck (due to bad shoulder) Thursday afternoon and will be in cabin 2. 

Bratwurst, or maybe pork chops, beans, and chips for dinner!  Undecided for sure yet but there will be something to eat

Bob

I was just in the area (Woodruff Boy Scout camp) the last few days. Did ride up on the V7III from Tampa last Sunday, got caught in the storm SUn nite going over Blood Mountain, turns out there was hail too! Going back yesterday was much easier.  Coppers were out ticketing a few riders at both sides of 129 over the mountain.
Anyway, bad timing for this year, but i should have the EV ready by next year and hope to get there! NOT sleeping in a tent if I can help it!

No surprise , that there was an endless supply of Triumphs in Hiawassee

Most of the old bikes look nice and light , the new ones look like monsters in comparison .
Yep , I'm wanting a ... NEW Replica ... of the 380 pound 650 Triumphs , even down to the single throttle body.

I found some interesting roads on the way home , and the Meteor purred along just fine at 70-73 mph at about 5k rpm happy as could be after I got on the interstate  .





Wolf Pen  and





River Road are always good !
