What an awesome month we have had of rides. From Macon, GA to the Blue Ridge Parkway NC, and all points in between. We have had Impromptu Monday Lunch Rides, Guys Getaway Rides, Dinner Ride, Art Festival Ride, Tennessee State H.O.G. Rally and the spectacular Highroads Trail Ride. If you have not found one of these rides to you liking, "what's up." I want to thank our Ride Leaders for the super job they have done in providing such a variety of rides.

I have had inquires to why some member's birthdays are not mentioned in the HOGWASH. The biggest reason is that you chose not to list your birthday on the Atlanta Chapter, H.O.G. Application. If you have an up coming birthday, which you would like to see in the HOGWASH, make sure it is on your application. I am sorry for anyone that I overlooked, especially the ones that put their birthday on the application and I just overlooked it. If it was not on the application, I cannot include it on the list the Birthday List.

Harland Moody is going on the Trail of Tears Ride on September 15. The Ride starts in Chattanooga, TN and ends in Oklahoma. If you have motel reservation and would like to ride along, he would welcome the company. If you don't have reservation prepared to sleep under the stars.

It is good to see Danny White back participating with the chapter after his mishap. They totaled his motorcycle, so he is out looking for new one.

Our Sympathy goes to Rene' Durham and her family for the loss of her father.

Please Note! We are cancelling the Biloxi, MS Ride, September 27-30 due to the lack of interest.

If you lost your motorcycle key at the TN State H.O.G. Rally on Saturday, check with Rene' at Harley-Davidson of Atlanta.

Don't for get our Willie G. Rides, rides where we give tickets for the drawing of a Leather Jacket at our Anniversary Party. We only have two or three Willie G. Rides per month. So if you are interested in a chance on the leather jacket, you have to attend as many rides as possible and be at the Anniversary Party for the drawing. Remember that you must be a "member in good standing of the Atlanta Chapter too win the jacket."

Please call or email me about any concerns you have about the Atlanta Chapter. All input is welcomed, good or bad. I would like to hear from you!

Remember that alcohol is not permitted on Atlanta Chapter Rides. If you must drink while participating on an Atlanta Chapter Ride, you will be ask to leave the ride. PLEASE! Don't make our Ride Leaders make this decision.

Ride Safe and Have Fun!

My dissertation this month is in regard to the topic of RIDES: HOW, WHERE, WHEN, AND WHY.

First and foremost is the requirement: Ride and have fun! This is the rallying cry of H.O.G. The definition of RIDE: We ride motorcycles, not cars, boats, lawn tractors, skidoos, or SUV's with screaming kids inside, etc. In order for us to ride and belong to H.O.G. a Harley-Davidson VIN# is required. The associate member is sponsored by a member and must also understand the concept of THE RIDE.

How: A registered H-D motorcycle in good working order. The member must be licensed by the State Dept. of Motor Vehicles to operate a motorcycle and obey all traffic laws that apply to the riding environment. It is the responsibility of the operator to learn the rules that apply to group riding and a simple question is all that is required on your part.

When: Whenever you can and whenever you feel it is safe to do so - Period.

Where: Because you want to go there - Period.

Why: Because you want to - Period.

My answers to the above questions contain the word you and we a lot and that's because That is what theclub is about. Anonymity is not a position from where to gain support or Respect. Therefore, if you have any recommendations as to rides, feel free to attend the Business Meeting and see if the calendar will allow it, your questions will be answered, and find out what is required to organize and lead your ride.

Ride like an adult - assume the responsibility!

Crank'em up and move'm out! Ride safe!

Assistant Director,

Wow, the year is half over, can you believe it? I can't!

Don't have a lot to talk about this month, just a couple of notes I want to touch on.

First is The Macon Braves Game. I became quite ill that weekend and could not attend. Fred took over for me, thank goodness. I know everyone had a great time as I knew they would. The Blues Brothers did not disappoint the crowd. They put on a terrific show as usual. I am sorry I couldn't make it, but I am even sorrier for two of our new members who accidentally got left behind. Pam, Randy; Fred and I both feel terrible about that. You guys were looking for me and Fred didn't point blank ask if anyone else was going. I am so sorry. I hope you will accept my apology and understand why I couldn't be there. I truly hope you will sign up to go on other rides.

Next is the MDA Poker Run on August 25, 2001 at Harley-Davidson of Atlanta. David O. and I have been working on that (David is doing most of the work I have to say), but we do have a great Poker Run planned. Please make every effort to come out and support this great cause.

Let me know how I am doing!

Catch ya later, see ya.

The Safety HOG

Hello Atlanta H.O.G. Everyone mark your calendars - our Chapters one and only sponsored charity event will be August 25th. We will be doing a poker ride for the MDA this year that will start and end at the Harley-Davidson of Atlanta. Please let us know if you have any ride ideas, and we sure could use some volunteer help on the day of the ride. We will have more ride details at the next Chapter Meeting.

Safety Tip of the Month: This month's tip focuses on the proper technique for turning. Motorcycle training classes teach the technique of slow, look, lean and roll. The best example of this technique in action is to watch a professional motorcycle road race. The riders are approaching the turn very fast, then hard on the brakes before entering the turn (slow), they will (look) all the way through the turn to where they want to exit, then (lean) way over with the bike, and finally (roll) on the throttle. I wish I could be that smooth and fast. For us big bike riders, these techniques are just as important even though our speeds are not even close to racing. Without going into the detailed physics of how a motorcycle turns, a motorcycle handles best when accelerating through a corner. Slowing down in a curve will compress the suspension, which on a Harley is already limited and can cause you to leave some precious chrome behind. Accelerating through the turn will maximize suspension travel by allowing it to stay in the middle of the range which also enhances stability. For some practice, try going into turns slowly and exiting fast. You will find that your turns are much smoother and you'll be pulling away from the rest of the group without even realizing it.

One caveat to the lean technique is that in a very slow turn, only the motorcycle is leaned over, and the rider places their weight on the outside foot peg.

If you ride safely, you'll ride longer!

Been There Done That!

American Diabetes Ride

Anyone that missed the A.D.A. Ride, missed a good time of meeting a lot of nice people. The ride was a blast as well as a hot. This was my first time in this Ride, but I didn't ride for myself, I rode for my son, Michael Abraham. Michael has been a diabetic since he was 18 months old. He is now almost four years old. It was a great feeling to see all the people that supported the A.D.A. this year and hope to see y'all at the March of Dimes Ride.

C-y'all later.

Patrick Aberham
Member, Atlanta Chapter, H.O.G.

Guys Getaway Rides

The getaways were brain stormed as an opportunity to bring in guys that need to get away from it all for a while and also guys that ride alone and would not normally join in regular Chapter Rides. This is being done as an effort to improve chapter participation and the rides have proven to be a success. The first ride was May 31st with four motorcycles and the second ride was June 10th with six motorcycles. On both occasions, we enjoyed rides through the countryside with the final destinations being Hooters on the first ride and Taco Mac on the second ride. This was especially nice since Taco Mac now sponsors "Biker Sundays". It was good to see new faces and discuss several fresh ideas to possibly present at the next business meeting. A good time was had by all.

Highroads Trail Ride

Our trip the weekend of June 8-10 to the western North Carolina area was a fantastic ride. The scenery was nothing less than stunning and we had a great group of folks that really "clicked", right from the start.

We got off to a bit of a damp start as the rain teased us a lot during the hours before we met for our departure from Kennesaw. One minute it would be just wet ground and then it would start raining only to let off and then start again. I had received several calls inquiring if the ride was still on and based on my last canceling of a ride where the weather did not materialize I had decided to go ahead, and it turned out to be the right call. By the time we left we were down to a light drizzle and a lot of wet pavement, so we donned the rain gear and headed out, hoping things would improve, which they did almost right away. We stopped for lunch at the Pink Pig in Cherry Log, GA 70 miles up the road and the rain suits came off.

Following lunch we had a great ride up TN 68 which is very winding all the way into Tellico Plains, where we picked up the Cherohala Skyway. This is a wonderful road because not only is it a good road in the physical sense, it traverses some really gorgeous country side from east Tennessee into western North Carolina. We did have to put our rain pants back on due the wet road, but we ditched them again just outside of Robbinsville, NC. It was here that the group decided they were fresh enough to take the long way to Bryson City via the Cheoah Dam, where we stopped for photos. While the scenery was great, I found out later that it almost cost us dinner!! By the time we checked in to our hotel and got ready to head out to dinner, only two places were still open. Fortunately the Mountain Steak House was open and close by and we wound up eating around 9:00 or so, but it was good and we all left plenty full. Most everyone crashed as soon as we got back.

For our second day, we decided to let folks sleep in a bit, but it seems Tommye and I were almost the last ones up. Several folks began the day with a bike wash and the hotel was very accommodating with a hose and towels. Then it was off to Ma Barker's for breakfast and a short walk around town. We gassed up and headed off towards Waynesville, picking up the Blue Ridge Parkway just short of town. Not long after we began we pulled off at one of the many, many viewing areas, I gave those folks who had dressed lightly the chance to put on jackets or leathers and then I ran ahead to photograph them as they emerged from the first of two tunnels on the stretch of the Parkway. Everybody seemed to enjoy the rocky out cropping and the pink rhododendrons that were everywhere along with some red poppies; additionally there were low clouds and foggy conditions to deal with but nothing too serious.

Leaving the Blue Ridge at US 276, we then took a route through the Pisgah National Forest and stopped for photos at Looking Glass Falls. Then another 10 miles and it was time to chow down at the Hawg Wild Barbecue in Brevard, NC. Everyone loved the hush puppies and our profiles and walk were definitely different when we left! That entire 28 mile stretch of road was limited to about 35 miles an hour on the top end due to all the curves. Then it was off to SC Hwy 11 for some straighter roads and higher speeds as we headed off to Walhalla, SC where we did a gas stop, and I noticed that gas prices here were about $.35/gallon cheaper than NC!! From Walhalla, we headed into Cashiers and it was here that I almost bought the farm; just as I approached the entrance to a golf club, a gentleman who had stopped started to pull out. I was on his right and began to veer to the right only to notice that he also had someone on his left who was also beginning to swerve into my lane to avoid the guy. Fortunately they were both able to stop and reposition so that I was able to get away with slowing down, veering slightly and continuing on. Whew!!!! Had it not turned out so, I am sure several of us would have been hurt, but it all worked out OK. After a brief stop in Highlands, we headed to Franklin, passing a fantastic waterfall about 8 miles east of Franklin; unfortunately there was no where to pull off for photos--at this point US 64 was really narrow and sharply curving. Our night in Franklin was great fun as a bunch of us congregated in one room for liquid refreshment and a lot of joking around with tons of laughter. Finally at around 10:30 about half of us went across the street to Pizza Hut for some late night groceries.

For the trip home we continued on US 64 through some really impressive hills to Hayesville, NC and at the suggestion of Gary Swicegood, we headed south on NC 69 to the Country Cottage for a mid morning breakfast, and it was really good. Our final leg of the trip was to take US 76 west out of Hiawassee and on down to 515/575 and home. From here it was time to say "good bye" and as we continued south, 3 bikes headed west out of Ellijay and two more dropped off at Hwy 92 towards Woodstock. When Tommye and I dropped off the remaining two bikes headed for south Atlanta.

All in all this trip was really a lot of fun and everyone had a good time. There was a good chemistry among the group, and I would like to thank and compliment the group on the way they rode their bikes. Safety was never an issue and everyone was comfortable with everyone else's riding habits. This always makes the Ride Captain's job so much easier!! Everybody did great in the curves and several folks recalled scraping floorboards a few times, so they were really into it.

We did have one member of our chapter new to group riding, Terry O'Malley, and he fit right in, rode well and was a lot of fun to have along. I hope we will see him and everyone else for several more rides. Rides like this with great scenery and equally good camaraderie are the epitome of the Harley riding experience!!

Cave Spring Arts Festival Ride

The ride to Cave Spring started as white knuckle after following several misleading construction signs, (right lane closed, etc) and having to pass a slow moving tractor trailer low boy that was loaded with a backhoe which OF COURSE ,was caked with red clay and slung it all over us and the road. After that, it smoothed out for a great ride to Cave Spring.

There were twelve motorcycles with several new members and two guestts. It was also good to see Danny and Janice White out with the chapter again. I was proud of our chapter for making our guests feel welcome even though one guest was not riding a Harley. You still befriended him and he wants to thank the chapter for the hospitality and he is now looking at buying a Harley.

After the festival, several of us rode back to Douglasville to the Old Hickory House and enjoyed a antique auto show. It was a great day and thanks to everyone for coming out to ride.
