It's almost here!!!

This is going to be our 4th 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!

If you have never ridden in the N. GA Mtns........ come see what is so special about Suches, GA!

Chuck, I was just looking at your post from the 2015 ride report. Flatland Road is still open, it has become even more popular with the Jeep crowd. Still a fun road to ride, some pretty deep ruts (I rode it this past Monday). Also Turner's Corner Restaurant has closed again as of November 2015. There is a new restaurant called Roadkill BBQ about a mile up the road from Turner's Corner near Boggs Creek ( I have not tried it, but I do know you can't beat Jim's Smoking Que for BBQ. Betty's Country Store in Helen is great for a sandwich. I hope to be able to join y'all Friday. I do know Saturday and Sunday are out due to work.

I live 15 minutes south of Dahlonega, grew up in this area and have been riding sport touring bikes for the last 20 years in these mountains. Just got the KLR back in November, so the dirt roads, forest services roads are new on a bike, but have been exploring them my whole life in 4 wheel drives and jeeps. I am looking forward to it also.

Excellent! Always nice getting back to my Suches hideaway and seeing other riders!

Chuck, what time will y'all be leaving to head out on Friday morning? Just trying to figure out what time I will need to be there.
I will be riding in that day around 9:00. We can wait until 10:00 before Kickstands Up. Hopefully that will give a few people coming in that morning, to set up camp, etc, before us heading out.
