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!

What: Bat Out Of Helen
Where: Cherokee Campground Cherokee Campground
When: October 23-25 (Early bird Thurs -22nd)

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!

Well, I only got to ride 1 day at BOOH this year, but WOW, what a day!

We had a pretty good list of riders signed up for BOOH this year, but a few folks had things that changed their plans. Hope to see you guys soon! Spencer and I rode up together on Thursday evening. We got to Helen to eat before heading to camp and just happened to pick the same restaurant that Keith was at!

We head back to camp and shoot the bull around the fire. It was great to meet Jared.......he owns the burnt orange Gen2. Hope to see ya at some more rides!

Finally....after riding 7 hours on a 5 hour trip, James rides in. After seeing how his bike was loaded down, we understood why it took an extra 2 hours.













Rise and shine!





Spencer and James snoring to each other!

Quick stop for breakfast over near Lake Burton.







A local sends us to this ORV site! We didn't pay to go in, but got some pics. Have to do this another time.......we got other places to ride today.............

Our cool little BBQ place in Hiawassee was out of business (2nd time that has happened to us)...........so over to the famous Jim's Smokin' Que we go! Line is always out the door, but food is ready fast!













After lunch, we blast through a couple more excellent FS routes, before heading across Richard Russell Parkway back to camp!

I broke camp......had more laughs with the gang........then said my goodbyes. I started heading home at a time to where I decided I could run the twisties of HWYS 75, 180, and 60 on my way home. I stopped by TWoS to say hi to Bill, and low and behold, Paul and Brenda were there! I just met them for the first time back in June at Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground. They are from Talladega, AL and ride a 2010 Gold Wing! They were in Suches to see the 50cc rally!
















Thanks to Phillip and Pat for giving us a fine place to lay our heads! I just hope the boys that are staying a couple more nights can get some sleep..............to my understanding, the Girls that came to camp tonight in the back campsite are quite the partying type! Someone help Chris find him a woman so he will have ANOTHER excuse to move over here!
