Not been down there in years, but it was always a great stop on the way up when I was in ATL.
Glad to hear it'll be back!

XSive Riders Rally

You know these folks for their Yamaha XS/XJ1100s' 1978-1982...They had been coming to TWO for over 10 yrs in late Sept...currently doing our rally at the Iron horse in Stecoah...but I'll bet my bottom dollar that if you truly reopen...we all will be coming back to Suches....

Best Wishes

Regardless of what form the much beloved T.W.O. property takes in the future it will be a good thing, not only for motorcyclists, but for the Suches/North Georgia community at large. Best wishes to Mr. Johnston.

So I heard he can't use "T.W.O." so I gave it some thought..

Tell him to call it "Two wheels welcome" but make the sign say

TWO
wheels
welcome

May be random, but I spoke with a guy yesterday at the gas station across from TWO. He was on a DRZ 400 SM, and I remebered him from several years ago as well. White guy in his mid 50's? May be him, or may not, but still good to hear that the place will reopen. My first motorcycle trip involved TWO.

GT,

Great to see you are hanging around and staying in touch.

Good luck to the new owner.

I am very pleased to know TWO is looking to reopen. So many good memories and fortunately located in my backyard. If any assistance is needed, I will be happy to help get the place back up and running.

On a side note, has anyone heard how Dale is doing lately from Dale's gas station across from TWO? Just curious.......

Nice to see the positive support from everyone!!!

Great news. I was up that way about a month ago. Took a friend and introduced him to the gap and several other rides. Sure did miss being able to pull into TWO. I tried to explain to him what it was like but that doesn't compare to experiencing the place. Keep us posted, we will make a trip back up.
