Atlanta Adventure Riders

We meet at Zuffy's on Buford Highway, the first Wednesday of the month, at 7:30 PM.

Some of us have years of ADV experience, some of us are just getting into it. No matter-come out and let's get some rides organized! Second Saturday is the loosely scheduled monthly ride. We normally meet at the Kangaroo off of the Dawsonville square between 9-10 am, and go from there.

All are welcome-no squids please.

Tonite! Tonite! Tonite!

Come one, come all!

Folks start arriving at Zuffy's after 7. Come hungry-the food is spectacular, and the service even better.

We hope to see you tonite!

Next time...

Hey guys, I stumbled on to this thread. Glad to see more guys wanting to ride. I've got the kids this weekend so the KTM690e will have to stay in the garage this weekend.

I've been dying to go ride but seems everytime I get to Dahlonega this winter I see snow flurries. Good news is I'm moving up to North Cumming so I'll be closer to the trails!
See ya'll next time!

Sundays ride NEW Development

I just made a deal with a fellow ADVrider to purchase and pick up a 2009 te310 this Saturday in Greesboro. The issue is I will not be able to pick it up until approx. 9pm. Then its a 5 hour ride home. Also Saturday is daylight savings which means we loose an hour of sleep!! 10am is gonna be tough for me!!! Can anyone else step up to lead the Sunday ride. I will still be joining in but more like noonish. The plan is to trailer my other bike with us, grab the Husky and drive 3 hours back. Hotel on 85 south for the night then get up and drive straight to Dahlonega. We will try to be there as close to 10 as possible but I have to be realistic as to not disappoint anyone. Thanks for your understanding. We will try and connect with everyone when we get in the area.

Hey guys, had to work Wednesday night so I was sad I couldn't make my second meet up. I'll see you Sunday on the hill though!

If anyone's going tomorrow (Saturday 03.09.13) I'll be out riding some FS roads, not leaving Buford til around 1030 or so, if anyone wants to go let me know

Didn't realize there was a "local" group meetup. I put the next one on my calendar. Hopefully will stop by and say hello.

Btw is this the owners from the old fuzzys that used to be around the corner? Assuming its gotta be. :)

Today's street ride

Nice ride today w/Curt, on my new(to me) 990 Dakar, thought it best to not get it dirty on the trails :) Weather was FANTASTIC!

I'll be looking forward to more of these rides!

April 12 film screening-Decatur Garage

  • See David's invitation below:




  • Hello Atlanta Friends,

    David Giguere (Georgia Overland) and Daniel Palazzolo
    (Decatur Garage) are pleased to offer a free screening of Maciek
    Swinarski's film "MotoSyberia".
    ...
    Just a heads-up...this is not a kid-friendly film.

    I was introduced to this film by Austin Vince (http://www.austinvince.com/)
    at his Adventure Travel Film Festival (http://www.adventuretravelfilmfestival.com/)
    last year.

    Here's a description of MotoSyberia from the ATFF site:

    "An incredibly imaginative film of one of the toughest motorcycle trips
    ever undertaken, a masterpiece!

    Maciek Swinarski is one of the top adventure film-makers in the world
    today. His latest film is the story of a seriously hardcore motorcycle
    ride from his native Poland to Magadan in eastern Siberia, and has
    made him a household name in his homeland. Imbued with a sense
    of humour so often absent from travel documentaries, Swinarski fully
    engages with the local people as he and his three travelling
    companions cross the imposing Russian landmass on their KTM640s.
    He shares this amazing experience not only with the viewer, but also
    with the people he meets along the way. Motosyberia is the antidote
    to the contrived ‘reality’ TV which dominates our screens today
    – genuine back to basics stuff, real life action, with all the hardship
    and adventure that entails."

    Bring a chair and a beverage and join us for this very different sort of
    adventure travel film at the best underground film screening
    location...Decatur Garage.

    For more information about this film:
    http://www.motosyberia.com/index_en.php

    The original thread on ADVRider:
    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=239330

    And watch the trailer here:
    http://vimeo.com/1236594

    And the less tame trailer here:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsD__EPiPv0

    A little about the Georgia Overland and Decatur Garage screenings:

    Your interest has pushed Daniel and I to find unique and worthy adventure
    travel films. We always contact the filmmakers for permission, we never
    charge a fee of any sort nor do we receive any compensation in return.
    The free screenings are our way of supporting a small but important community
    of filmmakers by introducing our friends and family to new films...and it's a great
    excuse to hang out with our buddies and make new friends!
