Wow, that was pretty soupy, but you seemed to handle it well!

I went in there one time when it was only slightly wet on a Vstrom with street tires and it was a handful and a half!

With a DS with the right tires, its not too bad though.

Organized Rides?

I'm getting ready to move from Middle Georgia to Buford just on the southern tip of Lake Lanier. Are there any organized rides for this fall? I'm excited to trade in these sandy farm roads for something a little more firm!

Funny Mike,
HP for horse power..... I don't do the Ride parks as a bird watcher ......circles bore me. Perhaps if there were 47 naked women at the end of the trails at HP I might be interested. But a bunch of hard tales with big egos says I'm out cause I only been a part timer since 2008
Yall enjoy and keep posting videos and...... I'm good.

Welcome Farmer.

"Organized" is a strong word. We have rides around here, but they are far from "organized".

Keep an eye on this thread. There are still a few of us who announce their rides for all to join.

Hey BD,

That duo is Rex (father) and his son (who I think is also Ryan). Eastside cycle is their place. They're good guys and both racers too like the Mark/Ryan mentioned.

I hope to catch up with you soon.

AWB.

Ranking Whissenhunt trails

so a friend and myself are starting to ride off road a lot more often. We have started with Whissenhunt. I was wondering if someone on this board rides Whissenhunt often enough help us.

So let say the main trail (192N) from the parking lot is a 1

relative to 192N I would like to rate the difficulty of the other main trails

192N = 1
192A
192B
192C
192D
192E
192G
192J
192H

If anyone has the experience to help us, it would be appreciated, thank you.

Heading up to Beasley Knob tomorrow

Myself and a couple buddies are trailering our dual sports up to Beasley knob tomorrow. First time there. Any good fire roads to ride? We will be up there about 3.5 hours. Ride Beasley knob, maybe a couple fire roads and head home. Any suggestions?

There's plenty to ride, a good day's worth anyway.


Davenport is only like 30 mins away in the opposite direction. Could check it out but it's not as big as Beasley.

FYI, Wolf Pen Gap has fresh new pavement. No bumps, scars, or dips. The FZ09 I just got was built for these types of roads. Grad and I stayed in a room at TWOs Thursday night. Had the entire place to ourselves. I slept like a baby listening to the waterfall across the road.

well we went to Beasley knob

and I sucked. not sure what trail I took, but it was WAY to DIFFICULT for my skill level. It was like the old joke, "I walked 2 miles to school UPHILL both ways" Got on this trail and it just kept climbing. every time we made a climb we thought, certainly it must level out NOW. then 100' down the trail it would climb again, even steeper and more rocky. my riding partner did much better than I did. We were on ONE TRAIL for 4 hours. Took me that long. And I would still be there if not for some nice 4 wheelers coming by and carting my ass and my bike up two big inclines.

We took off around 9:15 and got back around 1:45 and only rode this one trail. lots of jeeps and 4 wheelers were there. Not one other single bike came the whole day. Was so tired and beat up never got a chance to even go look at davenport.

I really need lots of work.
