Welcome to you from Mississippi. I had two bikes in the garage until last month. Loved my Yamaha Stratoliner but found myself picking the Gold Wing more and more. Northeast Georgia has some great roads and you are close enough for a lunch ride to North Carolina.

I always admired the looks of the Stratoliner, that's one cool looking bike.

Yep, NE GA has been my playground since my first ride in 1975. Back in those days (boy, I'm geezing now..) you could ride all day on Sunday without seeing another motorcycle and packs of bicycles were WAY in the future. None of the roads were straight. Every day after class, I'd drop the books and grab the helmet.

Nowadays, the best rides are done on Tuesdays when all the Atlantans are back at work. A good day is home->Robbinsville NC->over the Cherohala Skyway->back home. All roads curvy.

I used to have customers in Mississippi and went there often. Nice people, beautiful state.
Thanks!

Welcome from the northern tier of PA. Good luck on the search for a wing. With the 18's out prices seem to be good for used bikes (if that is what you are looking for). Enjoy the forum and ride safe.

We’re 46 miles W of Newbern, as of last April, when we relocated here from Douglasville, GA. Love the coast but sure miss Western NC/ Eastern TN mountains! If you’re even in our area, give us a shout.

You got it! Haven't been over there lately, but I get to Carrollton a good bit.
Thanks!

I'll be more than happy to get together and maybe get some riding too.
