Roll Call - Georgia

Hi, guys...

After a couple of years of nerve surgeries and extensive rehab, I am back "in the saddle". Just checking in to see who is in the Georgia area.

Roll call!!!!

Hawg

Just ride it!

Re: Roll Call - Georgia

Hey Hawg: Glad you're back and what does "pg" mean. Here is Texas it means "purdy good". Did you have a face lift or sumpin? Are you ridin that machine yet?

Anyway, same ole knuckleheads here.

Re: Roll Call - Georgia

Whoa!

pg means, well, I am NOT pregnant! Butt, I do have the occasional keyboard error syndrome, so, I changed it. thanks!

As far as the current machine...well, I am still riding my Trek Madone to stay fit while looking for a new ride with a real motor!

Just ride it!

Re: Roll Call - Georgia

Hey, Dave. There are, in roundabout numbers, 225 folks registered from GA on the LT forums. Count is a leetle skewed, cuz some folks have more'n one handle!!!

I didn't search for who might be in Newnan, 'sides yourself, butt just might be someone in your 'hood you haven't met yet!!

Take care.

It sure was a lot quieter when he was gone. I guess we'll just have to deal with him.

She's doing just fine. Thanks for taking such good care of her. I finished wearing out the rear tire and put on a new one. I've added about 7,000 miles since October (in spite of buying her while still recovering from a broken arm). I did replace the CB radio though. Other than that she's only needed regular cleanings and maintenance. In a few weeks I'll be changing her oil, transmission oil and FD oil. When we first saw her, we had originally gone to test ride an R1200RT. But when we saw her, my wife asked if they'd put her outside in the sun so she could get a better look. The next thing we knew, we were riding her and two days later she was in our garage!

She has learned to drag both her sidestand and centerstand up on the Tail of the Dragon too!

Again, thanks for taking such good care of her. We hope to put many more wonderful miles on her.

Chris

Just sold Airwolf a few days ago due to cashflow reasons. So I'll be living vicariously through you guys for a while. Can't wait to get back in the saddle.

Re: Roll Call - Georgia

Well, I am no longer in GA. Relo'd to Nashville in 2005 and am still riding the LT. Looking for rides now and then! I get over to Gatlinburg, Chatt or anywhere in between a few times a year... If anyone is headed to those destinations, or up to Nashv, give a shout! PM is [email protected].

Take care, and ride safe!

Another LT rider in Acworth, GA. ....just sort of bummed because we're missing CCR2009 after going to three in a row! It's that cash flow thing (again) !
