First day of Spring!

I unexpectedly got the day off. I spent the afternoon doing what I like best.


SR 60 along the Toccoa River north of Woody Gap


60 N


Toccoa River


Dial Rd


Toccoa River


Newport Rd


Toccoa River traveling north on Aska Rd just south of Blue Ridge, GA



Jim's Smokin' Que Blairsville, GA. I've been meaning to try this for a long time. I'll be back!

I have more!


Neels Gap. This is where the Appalachian Trail crosses US 19/129 after you hike down from the peak of Blood Mountain.

Final stop at Bourbon Street Grill for a gumbo washed down with an Abita Turbo Dog. A great finish to a great afternoon.

Thumbs up Lucky Guy!

Hey Marty, that's the prettiest scenery I've seen in Jawjuh.

I've only driven through flatland on I75.

Thank you for sharing it.

Been a long winter up here in the mitt. Those scenes get me remembering what white doesn't look like. One thing missing from that bike of yours, though--no fly rod. great pics-- thanks for sharing.

Riding.

I am not supposed to ride for two more weeks.
But I plan on getting the 400 Seca running next week and giving it a try.
If my wrist hurts too much I guess I will have to wait.
Lovely sunny cool day here on the left coast.

Excellent scenery Marty. Got about 100 miles in today, but no good scenery, just tooling around running errands stuff.

I here you.
Was my right wrist they fixed. Left one in June 014.
Still waiting for a couple of parts for the Seca so I rode Yami yesterday.
I rode the Seca about two miles with just the back brake. No traffic on my Island. Back brake is about useless.

awesome pictures

Man I miss Georgia. I spent 10 years in Macon. Love the scenery .... pictures bring back memories. I left Georgia in 2011. Almost retired there. Will have to make a point of riding over there for a few days. Weather is getting better every day.

Maybe you should come over here and see me. I live just 17 miles from TWoS. It's nice up here in the summer. Let's ride! We'll put some local forum members together and do it up!

Don't forget to book space for XS Southeast!
