Anybody know of a good apparel/accessory shop near Athens or Atlanta?

I am driving from Tallahassee, FL to Atlanta and Athens next week. I have had one heck of a problem trying to find any store with a really good selection of name-brand boots. I'm sure there is a CycleGear store somewhere around the area but I have not had much luck finding name brands there. These days they seem to only stock their own brand -Bilt. I want to be able to actually try on some Sidi, Alpinestars, Dainese' TCX sport/touring boots. Anybody know of such a place? Thanks.

I haven't been there in a few years but there is a Cycle Gear in Smyrna, GA which is a few miles outside Atlanta.

Check Mountain Motorsports on Hwy 41, its just up from CycleGear so you could hit both locations. Also just a bit further North (a few miles) there is WOW Motorcycles and I think they may carry some gear. South of these is Atlanta BMW. All are on Hwy 41 just north of the Perimeter (I-285)

Yup, your best bet is those four all along 41. It's unfortunately on the other side (NW) when you need to be going up 85/316 (NE) but I'm not aware of anything over that way. There's another cyclegear on Hwy 9 in Roswell, and another dealer North of there, on Upper Hembree, that sells gear too.

I forgot about that WOW shop. I wanted to go inside but they were closed on a weekday. Maybe a Monday? WTF?

And yea, they are all on a nice BUSY stretch of road. So bring some patience and try and stay out of rush hour from 7 AM to 7 PM.
