Welcome to Georgia. And yes our drivers suck. If you are smart you'll never let your two wheels hit the Perimeter. I've watched hybrids cut off Tractor Trailers hauling Nuclear Waste from the Savannah River Site. So they won't think twice about a bike.
Also if you go ITP (Inside the Perimeter) get use to being outnumberd by scooters.
Tyrone is a cool area. Plus I've always wanted to go to Peachtree City and race my bike down the golf cart roads and scare old Corvette(What I like to call the World's Fastest Golfcart) driving men.
