Since this is a Just for Fun event there are no official routes for the North Georgia Classic
However we've put together a collection of routes from past events that you are welcome to use.

For big Adventure Bikes I dug into my pile of routes in Northern Georgia and came up with two ADV routes.
They are now included in the link below

If you're going to the North Georgia Classic next weekend and don't yet have a room I have a room that I'd be glad to share.

Only four more days until the North Georgia Classic Rally in Helen Georgia
There are now three big Adventure Bike routes available as well as eleven routes for road bikes
The files for adventure bikes start with ADV
So if you want to try some big bike off road riding just download the ADV routes and join us in Helen GA

I had to cancel Fri and Sat nights and will miss the event as I will be arriving Sunday to start another week long adventure with Brick. Turns out that was a good thing. Even though I reserved a room two months ago by phoning a lady in the office and reserving a room with the MSTA group, when I called last week to cancel, she didn't have a reservation for me. Lesson learned, always reserve on line if possible, as you can't always trust the office help.

I got in yesterday. I decided to base out of Helen for the next few days ahead of the rally.
The weather is PERFECT today, cool and clear skies!
I'm meeting our Prez for lunch later.
See you guys in a few days. -JEP-

Looking forward to being in Helen in a few days, I now have an Ohlins shock on the ST 1300, and this will be the first long ride Anita and I have done since the installation. It is amazing to me the difference it makes, not only in comfort but in the stability and handling of the bike whether 1 up or2. I have yet to touch down any hard parts since the upgrade, whereas even one up I would drag a peg way too soon on the fun meter before.

Many Thanks to Gary Christopher and Ohlins USA from this very satisfied customer.

Now back on topic, I am looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend and...

Lets RIDE!

Thanks Jim.  Those were some great pictures.  Maybe next time you could photo shop or something and make my nose look smaller and my neck longer.

Nice group of folks there and GREAT riding around Helen.

It was also nice that mother nature missed the weather prediction and we got to ride on Saturday.
