We used to ride a lot around Hwy 92 and 41 near Acworth. We called it "Crossroads" or "Red Hill" . There is a country club community there now. That was a hotspot as well as the area where Thornton Rd intersects I-20.There was a track there but it had already shut down when I was riding. I remember riding 278 to 6 flags on an RM80 while they were building the road. Damn we had fun!!

Okay, okay, Jayboat you're older !(thankfully)

I lived near Cumberland Mall for 3-4 yrs before moving up to Lanier. I spent 11 yrs. in Ga.(1/1/94-11/12/04), but I'm from Ft. Lauderdale which is home again. We always Summered in NC/Ga and I'd get my riding in.

You are right though, most of Vinings is High-End real estate now.

Ran sea fleas and snowmobiles and moto cross when I was a youngen. Got away from boats and bikes at 14 when I started bracket racing a 67 small block dart.Dad had to tow my car to the track for me because I was too young to drive on the street. Met a pro stock driver who was looking to move up to alcohol funny and joined his crew as the "boy". Stayed with him for 6 seasons. Finnished up drag racing at 23 when the last alcohol KB motor went KABOOM and the team owner had no more money for the car or his now crew chief ( me ) so I bought a ski boat and reaquainted myself with speed on water.I guess I was just tired and bored with cars, what with working on them for a living and racing every weekend. Bought boats and spent lots o dough since and I wouldn't have it any other way
