Ride for Leigh Ann
Mood:  happy
Topic: Great ride

If you love escorted rides then you missed a great one on Saturday. The Ride for Leigh Ann was a great time for all! Doraville PD escorted us from Eagle Mountain Trading Post up Aska road, across old Dial, to Skeena Gap and Hwy 76 then back to Copperhead Lodge. During our stop at the Lodge we got the chance to taste the Chili cook off for 2008 and spend some time showing off our new friends from the Doraville PD motor unit. Not sure but I think we were the first ride to pass through there with our own motor patrol leading the way. Someone asked “is this ride out of Atlanta?”. I think they were jealous, well maybe just a little anyway.   After a short time we were back on the road with our escort in place and ran Hwy 76 back into Blue Ridge.

 

We pulled back into Eagle Mountain like VIP’s never slowing down or stopping, Lt. Curry and his crew had every intersection and cross road covered and we just rolled on through. Not sure if the weekend masses on Fannin roads enjoyed it as much as we did but we had a great time none the less. Make sure you don’t miss the next ride, stay tuned for more info!

 

Leigh Ann was at Eagle Mountain when we got back and talked to many of us. We all wish her god speed in her recovery! If you did not get the chance to talk to her or make a donation call Lynn at 706-455-7276 and he can hook you up. I know they will appreciate you very much!

 

After the ride Ron and Chuck treated us to a great time with a bond fire and all the marshmallows we could eat. Everyone got to tell their share of lies, listen to Ron laugh and watch Chuck do most of the work, just kidding.... Chuck laughs too. What more could you ask for? Well… I guess another bond fire…. right? Call the girls at the store or stop in and check on the schedule, they have several more planned.

 

Until next time, Ride Safe!

Ride for Angels 2008
Mood:  happy
Topic: Great ride

Saturday October 4th was a beautiful day for a ride in the mountains. The sixth annual Ride for Angels pulled out of Blue Ridge on time at 10:30AM and headed south for Ellijay. We had about 75 motorcycles bound for LongHorn Steakhouse and our first card stop. Our second stop was on Hwy 136, Burnt Mountain Overlook. The sky was clear and bright blue but the overcast set in and blocked our view of Stone Mountain. I guess we will have to make another trip there to get a look in next few days!  

Our final stop brought us back north to the Aska adventure area along the Toccoa River. Then it was back to Blue Ridge for some great food and more fun.  94 miles of pure heaven! We couldn't have had a better day for a ride and to meet new friends.
