    Hear Ye Hear Ye.

    This is the official Honda Transverse Twins of American Annual Spring Rally. Held in beautiful, twisty, mountainous, secluded Suches Ga. April 27- 30.





    It will be held at the High Valley Campground. (<Clicky) Last weekend in April. 27th- 30th. Plan to show up Friday and beat the rush for a sweet campsite or bunkhouse. Activities include a group ride Saturday. Sunday will be a lazy, do whatever day. There will be a farewell dinner planned for Sunday at the Rib Country in Blairsville. Group ride should last most of the day with rest stops and meals planned into it. Bring your comfy bike seat, you'll be in it for awhile! The surrounding are is just chocked full of great twisty motorbike friendly roads. Stunning mountain views. More parks than you can shake a stick at. Suches is in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Right smack dab in the middle, by the southern edge. Thus its pretty sparsely populated. Yeah for us! Meals will be eaten away from camp. Unless you want to grill something. There is no restaurant like the old T.W.O. There is however a large common area called Frank's Place with a T.V., karaoke, microwave, fireplace, tables, couch, and free WiFi. There is acess to a fridge, ice, and if memory serves correctly a washer an dryer. High Valley offers campsites, bunkhouses, and a big "Summer camp" type dormitory with bunk beds, a clean wash house, and even a landing strip! Please see the High Valley link for rates and contact info. There is a nice mom n pop cafe right down the road. They were very good to us last year, more than likley we will be eating there.



    It is sure to be a lot of fun. If you miss this event you, will miss this event. Get it? Ha. I crack me up. Anywho, be there or be square. Please reply here if you plan to attend and what days your staying. We would love to have ya. Any updates we be in the post below.

    Cheese, I wish I could attend but this year I am limiting my trips to the Mountain Momma rally and maybe the Amish. I would love to be there with you guys, North Georgia is one of my favorite places. I remember the little restaurant, I hope the family has been able to keep it open. One thing I will not do again and that is to take the hack back on those twisties! This year my trips will be with the GL riding on a trailer to the rally, then I put it on the road! I hope to see you at the Mountain Momma rally in June, have you made your reservations? Enjoy North Georgia!

    Phil sorry to hear you wont make it. Truly I am. It seems a rally isn't the same without you in it.



    Gene, pretty much the same as for Phil. You seem to be as much as part of any moto get together. You will be missed as well. Maybe when things settle down for me I can do a short trip up to see you old foggies! One at a time of coarse.



    To be honest, with the private side of my life getting out of hand, I'm pushing it to attend this Rally. I will be there, I really need this small vacation. Just not planning anything for the future.

    Here is a suggested route for Saturday's ride:







    Total distance is about 180 miles and it should take 5-6 hours, including a lunch stop. It includes Wolf Pen Gap Road, a Blood Mountain run, Highway 60 north of Suches, and a pass by Fort Mountain.



    The Cheese and I rode a similar route last year and discovered a nice cafe just south of Chatsworth for lunch.



    If you like mountain twisties, great scenery, and good chow this is not one to miss.
