I'm going to put together a Georgia FJR Riders Group. The goal of the list will be to put together group rides and starting in the spring we are going to have FJR Bike Nights!! Myself and others have kicked around doing a group Iron Butt ride in the spring?

To sign-up for the list go here and fill out your information: Georgia Riders List

Note that you don't have to live in Georgia to be on the list but most of the activities will be based in Georgia.

Thanks,
JW

You don't have to be from Georgia to join the list, but realize that most of the events will be either based in Georgia or will start and finish there.


BTW: I got your email address but you never have told me your real name? I'll just put BB's better half! rolleyes.gif

Sounds like a plan to me. An I think BB should be allowed in, but I'm not so sure about that character she's married too ermm.gif

Jason, if you need help organizing anything, I'm happy to help.

Sounds like a great idea.

If you would like to be a part of the group please send me a PM with your first and last name as well as your email address. I will reply back to you with my email address so you can add it to your safe sender list so your spam filter won't block upcoming announcements.

You don't have to be from Georgia to join the list, but realize that most of the events will be either based in Georgia or will start and finish there.

Attn Newbies/Lurkers: To send me a PM, click on my user name to the left of this post and one of the options is "send message".

Also post up on this thread so others can see who's in. If you have questions or ideas, post up!!

Thanks,
JW


Yahoo! yahoo.gif yahoo.gif Let's ride.

I'm in and look forward to the Georgia Iron Butt. I'll be happy to have the result of the private list and wonder if there is a possibility that phone numbers can be voluntarily offered as an additional and immediate contact method? I'll be glad to create an Excel spreadsheet list of all the info and also convert it to a pdf file for easy sharing if riders and passengers are interested.

Mike,
Thanks for the offer, I have updated my original post to ask for phone number as well. Pretty much everyone is sending it already so we should have a good list. I have already created a spreadsheet and will email it to everyone on the list once it's more complete.

Thanks,
JW

JW,

I'm in, PM sent. I might do the GA Iron Butt to get ready for the Bun Burner that I'm planning to do on the way to the NAFO. Is anybody else making plans to make the ride out to Colorado in July?

Ride safe,
