    Re: Multi-State trip ZZR600

    I went to the Dragon last year and trailered my bike. Found the trailer on Craig's list, cost me $65 for five days





    I actually camped out at Vogel State Park in GA, which is on Route 129/Blood Mountain. I had a blast and can't wait to go back

    I spent four days up there and did a lot of good riding and some sight seeing.

    Ride Red!

    Thanks for those routes, just might have to try some of those in Sept.

    “I guess it's because we all want to believe that what we do is very important, that people hang on to our every word, that they care what we think. The truth is, you should consider yourself lucky if you even occasionally get to make someone - anyone - feel a little better. After that, it's all about the people that you've let into your life.”— J.D.

    I plan to not use a route through GA. Just wander about all day at some old haunts. May take me 3 days to get to Suches, but that will be ok.

    Paul does pay attention to detail!
