Valley in the Sky Rally '15 - May 1-3

I want to apologize for shuffling these dates around. Going back to April 24-26 I think is a better weekend for us. There is a BMW rally going on in Hiawassee on the weekend of June 1-3 that a few of our guys were scheduled to go to. We will be sharing TWoS with another group (ABR), which should be fun!


This is our 3rd annual VITS rally! Two Wheels of Suches has always been a nice place to stay, eat good meals, and enjoy hanging out with friends! The lodge was the first place I every stayed on a motorcycle ride, way back in the 1900's (1992)! The roads are great in that area, and I always enjoy going back!


What: Valley in the Sky '15
When: April 24-26
Who: Dualsports/Adventure Bikes of all sizes! (All bikes welcome, though)
Where: Two Wheels of Suches http://twowheelsofsuches.com/



Many of you know we lost DirtRoadPassion (Bob) to Leukemia this past month. I have talked with his wife, Lisa, and have invited Bob's sons, Zack and Ryan, to ride with us during this weekend! I would like to have the Saturday ride be a memorial ride in honor of Bob! I know he loved practically all of the area.........but I would like some of the guys he rode with most, to lead this ride to some of those special places he liked!

Just noticed on TWoS website that they don't serve lunch on Friday......so, Friday morning, we can do some local riding, then swing by TWoS around 12:30 and pick up anyone that came in during our ride, then leave out for some great BBQ at Jim's Smokin Que!

Looks like 2 good weather days of riding......with 1 ugly day (Saturday) stuck in the middle. Just checking to see if this weather forecast will change anyone's plans?

Such a super time getting back over to Two Wheels of Suches this past weekend! The threat of rain changed a few minds of possible attendees, but all went smoothly with just rain during the night.....finishing around breakfast! Of those that did show up: JohnRandall, Deltadog, Jerry Atrick, Jagger_Snitt, and myself, the riding was great! I want to give a shout out to the Staff at TWoS for making our stay a great one! As you will see, Bill (owner) and his crew has got the place in super shape! Oh, something I kept hearing from riders all weekend long......'Look how lush and green that grass is!' It slept good for sure! Also, thanks to Deltadog for bringing the cool memorial stickers for DirtRoadPassion!



Friday

Spencer and I left Cleveland, TN around 7:30 am, heading for Suches.........we arrived at 9:00 and got our first pic of the day in front of the Lodge! After setting camp, Jerry Atrick, who got there the evening before, came over to welcome us! He finally filled us in on who this mysterious ABR group that had about 20 people taking up the cabins and Lodge rooms............drumroll............ No, they are not the Adventure Bike Riders..............nope, not the Atlanta British Riders..........they are none other than...........the members of the Alf's Bar Riders/Run/Racers, or something like that. I will let Dave fill you in on the story. Another story he will have to tell is why he was the only person not on a KLR this weekend.........

Well, after Deltadog and JohnRandall rolled in, we headed out! We checkout a few places before coming back to camp to pick up any late comers. None present, so we headed over to Jim's Smokn' Que for some excellent BBQ! We met a fine fellow riding a green KLR there....hope to see him around more! After eating, Deltadog had to split.....so after a visit at Brasstown Bald, John wanted to ride around Tray Mtn. Afterwards, we checked on Cherokee Campground and then headed off to Richard Russell for some carving fun! After some dirt/scenery over to Neel Gap, we heading for supper at Turner's Corner Café! Randall headed to the house as we made our way back to camp. After some lies being told while rocking on the porch of the lodge till midnight, the rest of us hit the hay!
