Valley in the Sky Rally '14 - April 18-20 (TWoS)

Last year we had our very first 'Valley in the Sky' rally!!! It pretty much consisted of helping the great folks at Two Wheels of Suches with a Clean Up Day from the KLR riders! Check out the report HERE

This year, we will be having the rally on Easter Weekend! Normally we have the 'Slaying the Dragon' ride on Easter, but it didn't pan out this year, so we swapped the dates with each other! I'm hoping that this can become a fantastic rally to ride the Mid-Large bikes (think 650-1200cc) around the Suches side of N. GA. Mtns............and have the Small-Mid (think 250-650cc) bikes hitting the wilder stuff in the fall during the BOOH ride near, you guessed it, Helen area!

Below are the details.............hope you guys can come out! I spent most of the 1990's staying at TWO........and look forward to many fun times at TWoS!!

Who: You
What: Dual Sports/Dual Purpose, normally.
Where: Two Wheels of Suches www.twowheelsofsuches.com
When: April 18-20
Why: Because we can!


Rider...........................Steed............. .....Days

Sorry it took me so long to post these pics of my 1 day ride at Valley in the Sky! I hauled in for the day, because I didn't have a sitter for the kids the day before. It was just the 3 of us most of the day.....until after eating lunch at TWoS, when we went riding some with a few more guys! Most of the rain had left by that morning..........

We ate breakfast at TWoS and snapped a couple of pics there..........






Funny.....but Randall and Kevin actually stay over at the air strip......where they have stayed several times in the past.



The scenery was great!!






Few pics of Sea Creek Falls!






Keep Loving Rides!

You can see Randall above the falls in this pic.



Afterwards....we went back to TWoS for some lunch! Bill (owner) was there eating after taking a group out that morning as well! After lunch, he, his brother, and Jay (from Ellijay, on a KLR) rode around with us seeing some old roads that we use to ride, but now closed....and we did go see Canada Creek Falls (the big one), before heading back to camp. No pics.....dead battery....sorry.


Before I had to head home.....the boys cooked up some Brats for supper!







I ate just 1 brat so I could save some room for the BBQ that they were saying I needed to stop by and pick up on my way home........so that's what I did!!








BBQ was very good!! Company was even better! It made for a great day of riding and hanging with pals............looking forward to it next time!!

Keep Loving Rides!
