Leave The Road

Leave the road and take the Trails. Trails that are crooked, winding, lonesome. Leading to mountains that reach high into the clouds. For straight roads don’t make a skillful rider.

Eddie’s Tire Shop, N Georgia

North Georgia has many rural roads and ‘old’ businesses, some active, some closed down; serving mainly the local community. While on my rides, such old and dated places catch my attention and I have to stop and take pictures with the bike. This place, now closed permanently, is along Highway 9 which runs to Dahlonega – foothills of the North Georgia mountains.

Ride: Yamaha FJR1300 AE

Unless the ride days are planned and set in stone, I tend to let the weekend mornings slide. I should really Plan the Ride and Ride the Plan, to avoid reducing the riding time available and thus making sure I can put in some longer triple digit rides. The weather forecast called for a cool windy ride. The FJR1300AE was fuelled up and ready to take flight. The plan was to head over to the Burnt Mountain lookout point. One of the stops when I rode with the WeekendRiderz Group on Sept 28, 2015. There would be one stop along the way. At Stancils Store. One of my favorite locations to take pictures of the bike.
