New Ride

Hello all, Just picked up a new 2017 AT this past weekend and looking forward to learning the ins and out of the bike and accessories.
I’ve been riding for over 40 years from dirt bikes to sportbikes and still have my 07 Aprilia Tuono in the garage.
I live on the north side of Atlanta and will be looking for like minded souls to meet and ride with.
Picked up a new Bell helmetvwith the bike and just ordered a pair of Sidi Adventure 2 boots since my old Tech 6 boots fell apart when I put them on.
I’ll be postings up questions on tires and accessories soon.

Take care,
Brad

Welcome and enjoy the new bike. I used to live in the N. Ga. mountains and plan on getting back there in the next few weeks. Always looking for people to ride with.

Stolen Pig Rally in Matewan? That's a great trip.
Wish I could've made it.
Keep in touch!

Have a friend coming down from Chicago with his KTM 1290 in a couple weeks and want to do a lot of dirt.
Suggestions?


Thanks,
Brad

You can ride day loops from TwoWheels of Suches for most of the FS roads.
If you have more time (3 days) do the SM500 loop:

I forgot you asked about paper maps; they sell one at TWoS for the local FS trails.
PM me your email, I don't seem to be able to reply to you via message here.
