Sequatchie Valley Days, 2017! First weekend of June!

Wow! We have had a great time riding this area over the years! SVD is held at Trials Training Center, and they have been great to stay with! Come on out and see what the valley has to offer!


Who: We ride DS/Adventure bikes, but all are welcome!
What: Sequatchie Valley Days
Where: Trials Training Center Trial Training Center
When: June 2-4
Why: 'Cause everybody needs a little Sequatchie in their life!

Friday.....I will lead some great trail riding for Friday's Dual Sport ride.....getting progressively rougher with each area we go to, so people can gage their abilities. I will be mostly south of the Tennessee River this year, hitting some newer terrain!

Saturday..... Paintdoc will lead us on another great Adventure ride! This is normally our crooked road/sight seeing route! Heck.....we may even find some BBQ! With the exception of last couple of years, we have also had another DS group go out.......we will tailor to the group.

Sunday..... will be open to either additional local riding or riding back to the house!


TTC has some nice cabins that most can fit 3 people! Also, plenty of tent camping is available.....along with hookups for RVs.

If you own a trials bike, definitely be sure and bring it.......... But, for those who prefer to stick with dual-sporting, there is everything from mild to wild within just a few miles of the campground. Food/gas is nearby! Also, the whole family can enjoy what the Chattanooga area has in store, so the kitchen pass may be easier to get than you think........


I have the large cabin that sleeps around 5 reserved, so I will fill it first before requesting another cabin. There are plenty of the Smaller 3 person cabins available. We are the only group, so we should be OK. If you have a small group of folks coming from your area, just give Allison a call at TTC and say you are with the KLR crowd, and she will put you in a cabin close to us!

ATTENDING..............WHEN............Ride....... ....Digs
cherokee_chuck.........Fri-Sun..........KLR 719.......Cabin(Lg)
Paintdoc...................Fri-Sun..........WeeStrom.....Cabin(Lg)


Look forward to seeing ya there!!!!!

Below are some sample pics of last year's ride....or check out all the pics of SVD 2016













Keep Loving Rides!

Still got room in the 5 man cabin.

Departure Times - (Central Time) 8:30AM.* Sequatchie is barely in the Central Time Zone, so we will go by it.* Sometimes we eat early breakfast in Jasper before departure time, then check back at camp before leaving, but just keep in touch if you plan to ride that morning and we can meet up with each other.

Another great ride in the TAG area in the books! 's We definitely missed having out Local Riding Host, Daven, at camp this year.......but your niece's wedding takes priority over leading a bunch of misfits around the valley.....ha! The weather was very cooperative with us, only causing folks to head for the hills on Sunday morning. I want to thank TTC for giving us a great place to hang out and rest our heads!

Pics got out of order some in my phone.........


FRIDAY


Getting to camp this morning was a bit of a challenge. I would find out later on that there was a terrible crash a couple hours earlier on I-24! Finally, after getting to camp, clogan and xracer were there ready to enjoy a nice day of DS Riding! We hit some of our usual spots.....the Brow Trail, lunch at Merv's, and of course.....Prentice Cooper! It was a great day for a ride..........but as we were making our way out of PC on Haley Rd. my KLX decided one of it's rear hub bearings had enough. Well, as the boys went to get the truck, I was able to limp out to the highway. Glad it went bad here and not deep in the mountains of Colorado.....yikes! Later on that day, Landrover (and crew), Randy, and klrstewbo came in! A few of us had some great mexican for supper!!
