Welcome! Unfortunately, the new owners who bought this site from Robert a few years ago have run it into the ground. You'll find a much more active community if you search Google for Georgia sportbike forums and Bloke's sportbikes. They're both mainly in the Atlanta area but have members all around the state and they all spend lots of time in the North Georgia mountains.
Is the TLR your first bike? Be careful - that's a lot of bike for a beginner. Have you taken the MSF course?
