BOOH (Bat Out Of Helen) 2015

This is a great rally to get together for the local twisties and FS roads of Northeast GA.........as well as enjoying Octoberfest in Helen, GA! Look forward to seeing your guys!


Who: Anyone wanting some Dualsport action!
What: Bat Out Of Helen
Where: Cherokee Campground Cherokee Campground
When: October 23-25 (Early bird Thurs -22nd)
Why: To Ride and Feast


We are fortunate to get the 4 campsites designated for just tents!! I told the owner, Phillip, we may have between 10-15 riders ..... that will work out for him. We will just take care of the cost when we get there.....he is letting us have the 4 sights.

Sounds like fun (although unfortunately, I'm unavailable to join you)!

Been to Helen, though; overnighted there on a 2,000-mile ride of the southern Appalachians last summer.

Reckon Helen might be called, "quaint." Architecture (of every building in town, it seems) designed to look like what someone thinks might be found in a Bavarian village.

If Walt Disney owned the place, he'd call it: "Bavarialand!"

Lots of good people, good eats, and splendid riding opportunities.

Have fun!

Oh, yes--the pizza place does NOT deliver ice cream orders.

Updated the campsites..........

The campground has 4 camping sites......but instead of having all 4, we are able to get 2. There was a double booking, but we should be good. We didn't use up all the space last year, so I don't see it being an issue. Whoever is the first there, see if you can get the 2 sites in the very back. The other small group is suppose to come in on Friday, so we should get first pick. I believe most people will try riding in this year, so the space for cages won't be needed as much.

The back half of the tenting area is behind the motorcycles in this pic.....

I really wanted to finally make this ride. I'm already out of town this weekend for a military reunion in Virginia Beach, VA. Hopefully, I can catch up on some rides in the near future. Stay safe!
