I have been stoping by Tootsie's for over a year now. When David was there running the place (you knew because his ST1100 would be up front) it was always a pleasure to stop, specially because he "hated" Harleys..LOL it was funny to hear him talk about it. I gave him plenty of business buying helmets, a GIVI v46 bag for my V-Strom and numerous small bits. Once he cleared out, reasons unknown, things kind went down pretty much, it was a matter of time. In terms of a meeting place is one of the bests as from there you have 3 different directions you ride too based on what you want to do that day, when your friends are scattered all over ATL meeting there just makes it easier.
In the other hand "She Rides Active Wear" is expensive and I think at least 60% of their business came from people that stopped there because of Tootsie's. So they need to watch. Everything you see in there is cheaper elsewhere.
For someone with money to spend and a bit of business saviness......that place has potential, not just for bikers but everyone passing by on the way to the mountains.
