Was Bombadil in Georgia Sunday?

I saw this in a parking lot beside the Silver Comet Trail near Rockmart, GA a couple of days ago. Was Tom there?

I've seen setups like that along the trails. In fact, fairly frequently. But my handlebars are a good 3"-4" lower than those.

Those do look mighty comfy.

Check out the front license plate. I'm betting it was our own man of the hour. I mean, he didn't deny being there at the time did he?

But why the heck would I be in Georgia?

Although I was in Savannah this past March for a meeting ... first time that I ever visited Georgia. I've driven through a number of times ... usually as fast as I can!

Thanks. Some of the small towns along major highways in Georgia get most of their income from fast driving yankees.

Usually I can't keep up with the traffic through Georgia. I can't believe how fast people drive there. If one is doing 75 on the interstate, people are constantly blowing past you.

My parents and all 5 of my brothers and sisters live in Florida. I've driven down there, for years from West Virginia and then from Wisconsin, about 15-16 times. So that makes 30-some driving trips through Georgia. Coming down from here and going through Chattanooga & down, it seems like nearly half of the drive is in Georgia.

Oh, and the other "proof" that the pic isn't of my bike ... I've never owned a pickup truck. So if that is my bike, it would be a picture of someone who stole it!
