Hwy 17 Hiawassee to Helen

Arrived Hiawassee about 9:00PM, ie dark, last Saturday headed to Helen on 17. What a surprise, like riding the dragon at night the last several miles. Was much more pleasant the next morning, even though the road was a little damp. First time I had been in North Ga mountain country. Some very nice roads there.

Oh, yeah, whilst in Helen, did ya try out their German brats at a local restaurant?

Got in to Helen late, and couldn't find a place to get anything to eat, so drank a few cold ones instead. My loss I'm sure. Headed out the next am about 9:00. From St. Louis area and go down to Deals Gap general area about twice a year.

Just got done with two trips down to North Georgia. Once on my Ninja (STC for Riders in Stecoah, NC), and once on my LT (GMR in Hiawassee, GA). Within the next 10 years, I WILL live a lot closer. The riding down there is second-to-none. Colorado has better scenery...but the roads in northern GA, TN, and northwest NC are unparalleled.
