In a day when motorcycling is not only becoming an economical way of transportation, riders are also discovering the joy of riding for pleasure. This book is written for those that want to take off and find some scenic rides in the North Georgia, Southeastern Tennessee and Southwestern North Carolina areas. I have included some motorcycling stories for your reading pleasure including a comical take on my son's first long distance motorcycle trip. The chapters have been kept to a minimal write-up description of the rides, but yet they give you a feel for the ride area. Each chapter also includes photos from the ride routes, as well as, a map and turn by turn directions. I am a very strong believer that businesses that truly believe in the biking community and welcome us into their establishments with open arms deserve our support! I have included in the book a listing of businesses that have believed in us and their information is included throughout the book. I encourage you to lend your support to these businesses that support us!

INTRODUCTION to SERIES: A long time ago, before television, forests grew all around a neighborhood near the edge of the great forbidden Cypress Swamp. The people in the neighborhood all shared their lives, beliefs, and superstitions, creating an atmosphere of adventure throughout the neighborhood. In the neighborhood lived five young boys. There was an old mulberry tree that stood on the outskirts of town. Over the years, someone had built a tree house in the fork of two large limbs that spread out over the cemetery. The tree house, called the Fort, was built large enough for the boys to use as their clubhouse. Inside the tree Fort, the boys had a panoramic view of the surrounding area. Looking out the north window, the boys could see a large meadow stretching out into the distance. Through the east window, they could see far away the top of a bald cypress tree. Everyone knew that meant there was a dangerous swamp nearby. In this series of stories, some strange and incredible things happen in the area to challenge the boys' ingenuity. Utilizing their imagination and skills, the boys successfully solve one problem after another. What is real, and how much is in their imagination?
