Beware North GA Riders!!!
I found out the hard way that the locals up above Dahlonega in the Suches area don't particularly care for guys on sport bikes turning the twisties up there into their own personal slice of Nirvana. Evidently they have taken to prouring viscous liquids (the star of this story is automatic transmission fluid) on the road.
I was coming around a curve to the right...not a difficult curve and I was only doing about 35 MPH when my ass end started to slide. I corrected, but by the time I did, I was in the dirt and gravel on the other side of the road. I laid my 05 ZX-10R with 600 miles on the odo over on its side. She came to rest literally inches from a 10'-15' drop off. Turns out that there was a pool of fresh clean automatic transmission fluid (or some purple oily liquid) in the center of the curve. I later found out that this has become commonplace and that some cagers have even taken to trying to run bikes into gaurd rails, off the road and what have you.
I have a bruised leg and have done about $500 plastic damage to my new baby. All in all it could have turned out worse. It just makes me sick that people have the capacity to do things like this.
