I have noticed quite a few new members from the NC, SC and Northeast GA areas joining and posting here. Perhaps we can use this thread to start some group rides in the area if anyone is interested...?...?

Post up with your thoughts or interest.

Think I may finally have my bike operating dependably. There are 2 of us that I know of here in NC that would be interested in getting together for some trail riding. We are about 1hr or so from the SC border, on the coast. Since I only recently got mine running right and this is my first dual sport I have no idea where to go trail riding.

Most of the riding spots I know of are not near the coast, so I will be of little help there, but perhaps we could get something going in the upstate somewhere... Open to any suggestions. Also willing to try the coastal areas if anyone has any decent trail riding knowledge in those areas at all.

Try the KLR-650 forum. In the Southeast section they have many rides posted for Tennessee,North Georgia and North/South Carolina. All bikes are welcome and the riding season starts soon.

Thanks for the suggestion. I am still interested in getting a group of Tdubs from here together as well, but I may check that out.

Good to know, thanks. My wife is from Asheville and her brother who lives here also, has the other Tdub. Going up that direction is an option but would just take a little planning. We are about 7 hrs from there.

Just getting an old 87 TW working and first dual sport. Not street legal yet but would love to know if there are any good trails in NE Ga or upstate to ride. Live in Atlanta but have a house on Lake Hartwell at the GA/SC border and will likely keep it there. Any suggestions would be great and happy to meet up, but just a beginner. Thanks.

I've heard there is some riding around the Stone Mountain area. Seems they ran a cross country race in that area and some places are still open.

I live in North Georgia and this is cool that I may meet a few folks and we can put a ride together. I am going to be in Blue Ridge GA 05/13- 05/16/19 I am staying in Morganton my brother has a place there at the point. I am sure I will get to Suckes and old Dail Rd area. we will ride the Cooper's Creek loop back to Wolf Pen. If time allows may take Flat Land Rd. I am going to take the TW and the CBX wife likes to go to lunch at Dahlonega one day. The north GA Dual Sport guys have a ride 05/18 meeting at TWO Campground on hwy 60 at 8 am. I may try to do that ride and if I can I am going to take the TW. It should be fun rain for a few days before so I think it will be fun to ride the TW and not be on a big bike.
This is one of my favorite roads to ride 60 miles of gravel and a great area to camp and play and Trout

I wanted to ask if any of the TW owners would like to plan a ride? My job is the most demanding for the next 45 days. Maybe early July TWO Camp ground is always entertaining and Volgel state park. Both are in the mountains cool nights and more dual sport riding than you can do in a week. The best Twisty roads to be found.
Vogel State Park https://gastateparks.org/Vogel
T.W.O> campground https://twowheelsofsuches.com/ I rode that area last week on the TW and the sound quality is bad It start on Old Dial RD and I ride to GA HWY 60

Yes I’d be in if the dates worked out. I have my anniversary and some work travel in July but may be able to make it.

The only thing that I would prefer is keeping it as off-road as possible. Shooting down Wolf Pen Gap on my TW would not be super enjoyable. I have an ATV rear tire mounted ;)

I’ve done it on a Street Triple R and loved it, but on the TDub I much prefer dirt. Not sure what’s available for dirt in that area but sound like it’s worth exploring.

That sounds great I will look at my schedule and send you some possible dates. I am good with the dirt coopers creek and flat land would make a day trip and we could throw in some of the fire roads. I rode Houston Valley riding park last week and it is 2600 acres and that really made me feel better about the dirt. I will share a video from that ride it is only 7 minutes I hate the editing part of the video's it just take so long. I hope I don't offend anyone sharing the video's I am in Atlanta tomorrow for an insurance expo so I am PM you some dates Thursday

I'll be at our place in Riceville Tennessee around June 18TH to early July. I want to explore the Tellico Plains area but I'm not that far away from places like Dalton. So if anyone wants to get together let me know.

Hey, I just got all the details of what is going on I am gone from 6/3 till 6/17 So if anyone would like to ride like the 22nd 23 I am in. I will be gone a couple of weeks in July everything looks like a day trip the rest of the year a couple of days a week after that. So if you guys ride please let me know I would love to join you. I did ride Suches this weekend on Sunday on the CBX and had a great time it was hot but very nice. The traffic was low to what I have seen. North of TWO only passed like 6 bikes all the way back to Morganton. I rode with the sport bikes buddies and we did 243 miles I don't think they moved on Monday. I took my grandson and rode Houston Valley and had a ball following the XR100 around and the TW is the perfect bike for that and could not be happier that I bought it. Just a fun bike that I wish I had bought in 1987. I want to ride with you guys I am happy in the back I will be good I Promise.
I think it would be fun to put a weekend together and meet camp hangout, ride and just have some fun. We got batter riding than that bunch out west. LOL we do we have shade trees and cool creek water
