At this time of year, no. Unless you go out of your way to draw attention...

What windblown said. Though I've never run into such issues -knock on wood-

I think police presence will be little to none. A friend of mine went with a group of GTRs and AMGs and they didn't see a single officer.

Keyword: think. Should be a good time regardless

Another outlook:

ARRRR X Seven

Bimmers:



Me and my boy:




Was an excellent ride through Fort Valley Rd, 211, and Skyline Dr. The route was 187 miles IIRC but I did about 270ish roundtrip. Very little police presence as well. Some of the roads had gravel since they were salted before but for 80% of the ride it was great.

Thanks for coming out .net! haha
