Hell yes it is. I went on a road off the 33 not to long ago. Back through pine mountain club and back the 166. Is my new favorite. You should check it.
I don't ride with any Kawi's but I have a solid couple of friends to ride with. They like to ride instead of pose around at local hot spots. I'll send you a pm when I figure out the next ride. My bike is broke right now, waiting on a stator.
