Fall scooter day trip

Fall scooter day trip
« on: October 14, 2017, 07:29:48 AM »
   Hello Everyone! Just thought I would share that tomorrow I am leaving my home in a North Atlanta Ga. suburb and traveling up to Mt. Mitchell in the North Carolina mountains.  The route I am taking will have me on the Blue Ridge Parkway for about 120 miles until I arrive at the mountain. Once there, I am going to turn around and head back home! I'm leaving at 6 AM and expect to return about 12 to 13 hours later. Its a 500 mile round trip, much of it on some of the best roads in the eastern U.S.
   I will be on my trusty '93 Helix for the trip. Should be a day of adventure! Just thought I would share...Paul

Ride safe. Sounds like a great ride. Any chance you've be filming it? If not, post pics.

Thanks! I left home yesterday at 6 AM and returned at 7 PM. Rode 545 miles from Woodstock, Ga. to Mount Mitchell NC. and back. The Helix performed flawlessly! It truly is "The Little Scooter that Could." I will attempt to post some photos. I did take some video but haven't uploaded them yet.

Nice pics. My wife liked the images of your Helix. You may have to upload your Youtube footage again without the music, or a royalty free sound track.

Thanks. In my video I had the bluetooth radio playing and didn't think of the copyright issues! ::) Heres the video in a different format. Should work now, I hope.
