VX800 Rally. Early 1990's

We've had an annual Suzuki VX800 rally there for the past 13 years or so. Here's a pic from maybe that first year. We had 22 VX's there.

That's me...

TWO camping

Camping at TWO, maybe '05. Had one of the worst thunderstorms I've ever been thru that night. The awning over my tent and my little orange cbr ended up about thirty feet up in those trees by morning!

Two 2008

Outside the lodge, 2008. The Ducati Multi 1100 was by far the most fun bike I've ever ridden in the N. Georgia mountains!

TWO Rally

Probably one of the last big VX rallies, maybe '04. We've still had sizable rallies all these years, but usually only 2-3 still show up on VX's.

this was in 2008. we trailered in the bikes and camped with all the toys, air mattress, big cooler...a lot of stuff to do in that area that all begins with an excellent ride in any of three directions.

Yeah that is some sad news. I have a lot of good memories from that place.

Here's one my friend Bob S. while we were beating around north GA and western NC on our Bandits.



Me and my Bandit (RIP).

One of my favorite memories was about 7 or 8 years ago: I left the AMA race at Barber and rode straight to TWO. The weekend of a Superbike race meant lots of folks at TWO, right? I had zero vittles and no real provisions-I was banking on the kitchen being open. Imagine my surprise when I found that the lodge was closed (no food!). Luckily, there was a couple from the UK traveling around the world on their Yamaha's. (Theirs is a great story).

Lew and Anita shared their food and beer with me. Just a trio of motorcyclists enjoying the atmosphere of TWO.


And there's not even time for one last trip up there.

Taken in 2003 - first time I met Ara (BeemerChef). I think this was some random Monday, and I'd run by TWO for lunch. Ara stopped me and asked if I was Linzi from ADVRider.




Easter Weekend ADV campout in 2004. Pengy, one of my favorite people, provided the entertainment and probably some of the moonshine.




Ara and Brit, 2004.




Another random Monday ride, only bike in the lot, 2004.




2004 True Grits 50cc Fun Run.




Rebel Yell III, 2005.






I have a bunch more that people, now with families and children, would probably not appreciate being posted.

I will really, really miss TWO. Unfortunately, with a family and children and other obligations of my own, it's been a while since I've made it down there. But, it was always such a warm, familiar place to get a burger and a smile. The place to go if you just loved the ride and weren't so concerned with being seen.

I just went by there the other day and wondered why they weren't open on such a beautiful weekend.

Any reason given for the closing? Another victim to the economy?

The land owners won't renew the lease.

Any idea what's going to happen to the land and building?

How about an RV park because there's definitely not enough of those in N. GA.
