Fellow Chattanoogan here, can be found riding spiritedly through the local mountains any given weekend. Prefer making 8-12 hour trips out to Deal's Gap via Cherohala Skyway though.

This thread is alive and well. We (they) have rides often, but haven't had many here lately. However, there is the Spring Beaver rally coming up soon in Murphy, NC. You can find the thread for the Spring Beaver in the Southeast regional forums. There is some awesome riding in that area and it is not far from Chattanooga.

Its this awesome Spring weather. Everyone is out riding.
Over the last week, I've logged many miles.
200 miles off-road on XRL
400 on-road Stroming
150 off-road last night on VStrom
25 miles on MTB on two rides. Which sucked because Im fat and out of shape.

Make sure you checkout the D.O.G. forum for rides.
There's a pretty big group of riders meeting in Chattsworth tomorrow for a ride. Don't know any detail.

We are going to ride the entire Cohutta loop (75+ miles of dirt) tomorrow. Meetup spot is the BP station on the corner of Ooltewah Ringgold & East Brainerd rd at 8:30. Bring a dual sport lunch (energy bars) and a Camelback full of water as we will be miles from any restaurants. We have 4 thumper riders, which means a side trip through Hell's Holler might be in order. All the relevant parties should have my cell number if you have questions.

We had 5 thumper riders show up for a fantastic ride today. In attendance were Madlaw Dave, Don, Rude Dude, Tracy, and me. The pace was brisk and we had a blast. Odo said 197 miles with 98 of those being dirt. Thanks guys, looking forward to the next one.

David and Rude Dude waiting for the other two to catch up at the first stop.


We were all standing around shooting the breeze when our jaws hit the floor at the sight of these two. Who says ya need a dirt bike to ride dirt roads?:loll

Rude Dude using the FS221 sign as a kickstand at the top of Thunder Rock.


The other end of Tumbling Creek road. It was closed off on the GA side, so we turned around and hauled the mail to McCaysville, GA where we ate lunch on the banks of the Ocoee River at the Riverside Cafe.

After lunch we headed up 68 to McFarland and hit the dirt roads so I could show the guys this.^

Then we rode up trail 81 going in the uphill direction, which none of us had done before.

It seems longer and just a wee bit more challenging than the usual downhill run.

Lost Creek road just before popping out onto 30.

The top of 77 Oswald Dome after Don lost his plate. Checking the bungees to make sure it was still there.

The view of Lake Ocoee as we descended Oswald Dome on the super motardy fun pavement section.

Thanks to Monte for showing us a great ride. Had no clue where we were, but had a fantastic time. Glad we all came back in one piece. There was some serious flat track racing going on!

That DRZ 400SM with the 21/18 set up looks exactly like one I sold to a guy in Atlanta a few years back.

Thanks for joining the fun guys. It's great to have a group of riders who are on the pace so to speak. As y'all figured out, the Rude Dude doesn't wait around on others. It was impressive to see MadlawDave chase him down on his new 350. You hustled that KLR up trail 81 like a champ. When did you move to Tellico Plains? Your location confused me at first.
