Saturday morning ride

Had not seen John in a long time. I got to know John in the motorcycle safety classes last year. Having retired for a year then, he was seeking some adventure and got on to his first bike.

Avi, of course, was one of initial persons who encouraged me to try a bike.

It was the three of us for a lunch ride to Pelican Pete on Lake Lanier.

Left to right, those are The Beast, Dark Knight and Phoenix…

Yessss!! Managed to finish the ride without breaking any bones!!

First 100+ mile ride. Great ride organized by Rakesh Rao up to Burnt Mountain and the cute town of Talking Rock – where uptown is one house separated from downtown!! Best part was being part of a 9 rider team. Of course, I was the one with the least experience and was no doubt tentative at times – especially those right twistys on downhill but it was a great experience to ride with a large group from Gears and Beers!

The trip included a couple of stops to enjoy the views and a lunch break as well as a ice cream break!
