and then the next day may be back to winterbut we are not
complaining! JoAnna and I have been taking advantage of every opportunity
and riding as much as possible, but never enough. We hope you are
getting to ride as much as you want!

It's a family affair! We recently had the pleasure of instructing
one of our longtime AMS customers' oldest son. Calvin's father learned
to ride with us many years ago. Riding in the dirt since a small
boy, Calvin is now ready to take it to the street. As they say,
"A family that rides together, stays together." What a
It's been found most people put in only minimal practice time with
small revolvers because their light weight and limited grip can
make them uncomfortable to shoot. In comparison, we find shooting
the 4 to 6 inch (barrel) revolvers to be a joy. Mastering double-action
shooting by practicing with the heavier, more durable full size
revolvers is a more effective plan. Then with additional practice
with the more "friendly" revolvers, the shooter can go
back to the smaller "carry" revolver with more confidence
and better skills.

Good Rides and Good Eats (sorry, Alton!) in North GA
The closing of Two Wheels Only Motorcycle Resort in Suches this
past month is a considerable misfortune for all the motorcyclists
who ride in this area. We would like to let you know that there
is a newly opened local eatery nearby in Suches that offers "GOOD
EATS". The 180 Diner (formerly Lenny's Grill) is now open on
Georgia 180 just about 5 miles from the intersection of GA 60 and
GA 180. Meet the owners (and operators), Shelly and Tom Ingram.
You can order from the menu on Friday and Saturday. A country buffet
is offered on Sunday. Check out the 180 Diner and tell Shelly and
Tom "Hello" for us.
If you are looking for something more up scale, ride up to the
Blairsville/Blue Ridge area and meet Carolyn, Michelle, and Anthony
at the Lodge at Copperhead. Excellent food, great location, and
The address and web site is:
151 Copperhead Pkwy, Blairsville, GA 30512
The Copperhead Lodge offers overnight accommodations, an excellent
menu, and regular events.
Tell them "Hello" from us as well!

To minimize the negative affect your weight has on your motorcycle,
try weighting the footpegs. To help support your body, squeeze the
tank with your knees to allow your arms to remain relaxed as you
weight the pegs. The helps to take some weight off the saddle, and
it allows the large muscles in your legs to act as additional shock
absorbers. This simple technique allows the tires and suspension
to perform better, which is critical when riding near the edge of
