I wish this wasn't the same weekend as the Beaver Rally. I would absolutely love to learn more about the local roads, but the temptation of the Tellico area is too much. Hope you all have a great time!

The GS Giants are helping sponsor the Woods Trials ride.
We've been havin' a blast workin' out the course.

We'll have prizes for the top finishers & good time should be had by all.

Hope y'all can make it.

The very kind fellow who owns the property where Ribfest is held was recently hospitalized.

All tuition collected from those who sign up for the Adventure Bike Training will be given to Lee.

Please consider signing up. We'd like nothing better than to give Lee a few thousand dollars to help with his hospital bills.

To sign up, send your payment to support@blueridgeadventuretraining.com via Paypal. Any donation is appreciated but $149 is the minimum. Please specify your interest in the Thursday class or the Friday class.

I was a motorcycle instructor at the BMW Performance Center from 2010-2012 and will be teaching. Another instructor who still works at the PC has expressed interest in helping out. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Thanks!

Frijole, where's all those pics from the course?

Y'all missed it if you didn't make it out. We had a blast.

The winners on the course were a KTM 990 1st, 1200GS 2nd & a DRZ 400 3rd

It was a blast a we raised a little money for a great friend.
