Location: Cooperhead Lodge, Blairsville, GA ( Mountain Cabin Resort & Lodge in North Georgia Mountains | The Lodge @ Copperhead ); Block of Rooms Reserved under Promo Code BMW18 (Save 10%)- Book Room On Line
Helmets: Required
Ride: We will be averaging >200 miles per day throughout the GA, NC & TN Appalachian Mountain Range. Come enjoy the Georgia Six Gap ( https://sixgap.com ), Gauntlet ( Run The Gauntlet Georgia, 133 Miles of Smiles | The Lodge @ Copperhead, The Biker Barn ) and other great roads in the area. We do not have a sponsor so, this will be a much smaller event than the TTD at the IHML.

Are the ride routes listed in order? I live in north Ga and hope to make it to at least one ride

I was hoping to try and ride with you all on Saturday but schedule will not allow. Plus need to spend some time Saturday to finish de-farkling the bike. The big blue GSA is going on the market soon.

Ride safe everyone and enjoy the GA mountains.

Not all who wander are lost!

@Qbird66 , Kevin, you guys ride safe and have a good time. On my way to Copperhead Lodge last week I rode your "recommendation"! Wow, not only an awesome road, I didn't see ONE car running it!

BMW K1600 SE Riders Weekend After Memorial Day Mountain Ride- June 2018

Weekend After Memorial Day Mountain Ride- June 2018

NO TICKETS!/ NO WREAKS! (One guard rail incident)/ NO DROPS!/ RAIN (Isolated in afternoon)

Location: Cooperhead Lodge, Blairsville, GA (Fantastic place to stay-We will be back!!)

Participants: 11 riders & 2 passengers

Many arrived on Wensday the 30th of May 2018. qbird66 & memphomaniac came from the California Superbike School in Birmingham, AL. They saw JR3 there just before his wedding. Thursday we meet Al & Jan Strickland at the Hole in the Wall in Blairswill, GA for breakfast (The Hole In The Wall ).
A Spirited ride ensued and we ate at the Adair Brothers Smokehouse in Cashiers, NC ( https://www.adairbrotherssmokehouse.com/menu ). Friday we all gathered together & before lunch the Power Cell performance clutch slave failed on my 2017 KTM SDGT. Thanks to all who assisted. Got to Eurosports of Asheville, NC at 5 PM, they replaced the component with a floor model part & was back in GA by 8 PM. Fantastic Dealership!! Everyone else had a cook out that night at one of the many cabins. Understand rush 21122 is a Burger Master. Saturday was great day. That morning Kizzle from Miami, FL went to Atlanta, GA for a new rear sprocket & chain on his new 2018 1000XR. He was back before Lunch. pkpr1998 meet up with us just before lunch at the River Street Tavern in Ellijay, GA (Ellijay - River Street Tavern ). There was a Sunday Spirited ride but, many headed back home.

For those that are interested our next Mountain ride will be after the 4th of July in Wise, West Virginia:
4th of July Mountain Ride- July 2018
Dates: Thursday 5th July to Sunday 8th July (4th of July is on a Wensday)
Location: Best Western in Wise, W VA ( https://www.bestwestern.com/en_US/bo...ogle:gmb:47108 ); Book Room On Line

The Cooperhead Lodge is a Fantastic place for riders/ bikers to stay.
All agreed we will be back next year after Memorial Day.
Also, if I can get a sponsor there may be a Fall K1600 Rally like the TTD in the second week of September in 2019??
Is anyone interested??

Maybe

BMWs Unlock the Wolf Pen.

We will be working on it.

Best,

Doc

I hate I missed it. I hope it wasn't a total rain out, we had been getting a lot in north GA lately but nice this week. Going for a ride now.

chesterdawg,

Sorry we missed riding with you. Michele (owner-CHL) said you came one morning by & we were already gone?? Fortunately, we were able to ride arround any rain until late in the afternoon on Thursday & Friday. Kind of important to learn how to ride in/ after the rain anyway?? Best,

Doc
