Question Riding in Georgia (Alpharetta/Georgia)

Hi all, Im pretty new to the board and have been enjoying my new/first bike driving up and down through Alpharetta, Roswell, and Buckhead area, I occasionally ride around near the river, but was wondering how many people on this board ride in this area. On roswell you can count on seeing a sport bike or two riding around near the bike shops in the area. All seem pretty friendly and wave. BUT the ODDEST thing ive noticed, is that ive seen more Ducati 748/916/996's than any other one type of sportbike. Which is cool, they sound nice, look good but just seems odd to me. Figured I'd see a bunch of cbr's not ducatis Anyways I dont ride on the highways too often, so I was wondering any good roads in that area to go on a moderate paced ride?


Thanks,


Jason

Ahh whats a good way to take about a one hour ride through some twisties Im a relative novice, so I try to stay away from where I'd be getting in the way of hard core riders in the mountains. I dont like holding people up. But if there is a good route i'd love to hear about it. Currently I putt around near the river, and a few select spots that are pretty empty. Are there any sportbike gathering places around this area?

Hey Gixxer Sounds great,


My bike will be out of the shop sometime next week, how about shooting me an email at [email protected] and we can hook up, I'd love to go riding and meet new people

Get on 285 (Road Atlanta) heading towards Bham, and get off at the Camp Creek pkwy exit, and go left.
