Atlanta Adventure Riders

We meet at Zuffy's on Buford Highway, the first Wednesday of the month, at 7:30 PM.

Some of us have years of ADV experience, some of us are just getting into it. No matter-come out and let's get some rides organized! Second Saturday is the loosely scheduled monthly ride. We normally meet at the Kangaroo off of the Dawsonville square between 9-10 am, and go from there.

All are welcome-no squids please.

Tonite! Tonite! Tonite!

Come one, come all!

Folks start arriving at Zuffy's after 7. Come hungry-the food is spectacular, and the service even better.

We hope to see you tonite!

Next time...

Hey guys, I stumbled on to this thread. Glad to see more guys wanting to ride. I've got the kids this weekend so the KTM690e will have to stay in the garage this weekend.

I've been dying to go ride but seems everytime I get to Dahlonega this winter I see snow flurries. Good news is I'm moving up to North Cumming so I'll be closer to the trails!
See ya'll next time!

Today's street ride

Nice ride today w/Curt, on my new(to me) 990 Dakar, thought it best to not get it dirty on the trails :) Weather was FANTASTIC!

I'll be looking forward to more of these rides!

April 12 film screening-Decatur Garage

  • See David's invitation below:




  • Hello Atlanta Friends,

    David Giguere (Georgia Overland) and Daniel Palazzolo
    (Decatur Garage) are pleased to offer a free screening of Maciek
    Swinarski's film "MotoSyberia".
    ...
    Just a heads-up...this is not a kid-friendly film.

    I was introduced to this film by Austin Vince (http://www.austinvince.com/)
    at his Adventure Travel Film Festival (http://www.adventuretravelfilmfestival.com/)
    last year.

    Here's a description of MotoSyberia from the ATFF site:

    "An incredibly imaginative film of one of the toughest motorcycle trips
    ever undertaken, a masterpiece!

    Maciek Swinarski is one of the top adventure film-makers in the world
    today. His latest film is the story of a seriously hardcore motorcycle
    ride from his native Poland to Magadan in eastern Siberia, and has
    made him a household name in his homeland. Imbued with a sense
    of humour so often absent from travel documentaries, Swinarski fully
    engages with the local people as he and his three travelling
    companions cross the imposing Russian landmass on their KTM640s.
    He shares this amazing experience not only with the viewer, but also
    with the people he meets along the way. Motosyberia is the antidote
    to the contrived ‘reality’ TV which dominates our screens today
    – genuine back to basics stuff, real life action, with all the hardship
    and adventure that entails."

    Bring a chair and a beverage and join us for this very different sort of
    adventure travel film at the best underground film screening
    location...Decatur Garage.

    For more information about this film:
    http://www.motosyberia.com/index_en.php

    The original thread on ADVRider:

    And watch the trailer here:
    http://vimeo.com/1236594

    And the less tame trailer here:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsD__EPiPv0

    A little about the Georgia Overland and Decatur Garage screenings:

    Your interest has pushed Daniel and I to find unique and worthy adventure
    travel films. We always contact the filmmakers for permission, we never
    charge a fee of any sort nor do we receive any compensation in return.
    The free screenings are our way of supporting a small but important community
    of filmmakers by introducing our friends and family to new films...and it's a great
    excuse to hang out with our buddies and make new friends!

    Hey inmates, I posted on the meetup page about my ride up to this event tomorrow. Rain is likely but I still plan on going. Probably will take my "street bike" (DL-1000) but let me know if you're coming. I plan to leave about 8:30 from McDonald's in Canton. about 150 miles, 3 hrs to the race.

    Spring is here!



    A few hardy souls braved the elements tonite, and came down to Zuffy's.

    Try to come to the group ride next weekend, and also the movie nite at Decatur Garage on 4/27. Anyone is welcome-4 wheels or two!

    Let's get some overnites planned for this upcoming season.
