    Although there is some great rides in Mountainia,There are a few here in Alabama.I get to ride them almost every day.Ican only get to the Great state of Mountainia every couple of months.Even so we need a regional section that has local intrest,nothing east of the Mason Dixon line.....

    Nothing east of the Mason-Dixon line?


    I'm with you though Vic. The regional forum needs broke down a bit. The only time boys from Alabama and New Hampshire get together is either at a motorcycle rally or when they are taking aim at each other.

    Maylene - you're not to far from Barber are you? That's a beautiful area.

    To me, South means Boston. Deep South is Baltimore.

    '07 R1200GS for solo rides
    '10 R1200GSA with Hannigan dual sport sidecar for rides with Barley

    *technically* there are parts of alabama in mountainia.

    i have been known to terrorize the talladegha national forest, the skyway (south of cheaha, where it really gets good ) and the new river canyon... among some of the good riding out your way.

    Florida is south, boys...deep south. Down here we consider anything north of Jacksonville the NORTH. Actually, have a SOUTH region would be nice.

    98% of Florida is made up of retired folks from up north. I used to live there, so I know its a very dangerious place to ride a motorcycle...

    If I go on Interstate Barbers is about 25 miles or so,If I take the back roads and go up in the hills I can make it in about 100 miles.Needless to say,I usually go the back route...
    The South Forum is starting to get noticed...Maybe the CSA and a few others..

    Yup, you know the place. Blue haired little old ladies peeking through the steering wheel driving 23 miles per hour in the left hand lane with their right hand blinker going blink, blink, blink......

    The good thing about Florida is you can ride all year ('cept when one of those dang hurricanes comes along), but the bad thing is all the roads are straight, flat, and full of crazy drivers and soccer moms in NASCAR SUV's!
