Golden cigar shaped UFO

I was riding my motorcycle to work, just passing the Savannah Golf Club. Traffic was light and I was going 35-40 mph. It was mostly cloudy with occasional patches of blue sky. I glanced over at the golf course and saw through a break in the clouds a large, gold colored cigar shaped flying object leaving a smoke trail. It was off in distance but was traveling horizontal from north to south. After watching it incredulously for a couple of seconds I looked away to pull off on the side of the road. After I got the bike stopped I looked back to where it had been but there was nothing there anymore. I watched for couple of minutes to see if I could see it in any other breaks in the clouds with no luck. When it became obvious it was gone I got back on my bike and rode on to work. I didn't report it or tell too many people what I had seen. I was 23 at the time and taking time off from college. Shortly after that I went back to college and finished my BA Psychology. That, and another incident, spawned a lifelong interest in UFOs. I am a MUFON Field Investigator and have been a MUFON state section director.
