    Yeah planning on making it to the movie this weekend. Sorry I couldn't make the ride as I'm in NY for work. Anyone want to ride Saturday and then hit the movie? Looking forward to meeting you guys. Where'd you ride?

    Is it Friday or Saturday at 8:00?? I see Saturday here but the meetup.com site (which I'm no longer part of) has Friday as the date.

    Come give the 10th annual Dream House 500 a try. It is a nice ride with a 300 mile Sport Tour all pavement route and an Adventure Tour route of approximately 250 miles with about 25% forest service dirt roads. This is a self-guided tour. Route sheets with detailed route instructions will be issued. We'll divide up into small riding groups. We'll have a stand-by tow vehicle on call in case of mechanical problems. Three meals are included: continental breakfast at registration, catered lunch with live music entertainment at a north GA lakeshore, and a grilled evening meal (steak or chicken, your choice) at the finish. It starts and finishes at the Honda Rider Education Center in Alpharetta, GA. The grand prize of a $250 Parts Unlimited gift certificate will be awarded in a drawing to a lucky rider. The event benefits the Dream House for Medically Fragile Children in Lilburn, GA. http://www.dreamhouseforkids.org/
    Information is here: http://www.dreamhouse500.com/
    Registration form with event details is here: http://www.dreamhouse500.com/registration.pdf

    Beginning on Sept. 25, Ebay auctions will begin for the auction of the use of two new BMW motorcycles with a full tank of gas to ride the event complete with an event entry ($100 value). The R1200RT and the R1200GS are donated from the demonstrator fleet of BMW Ducati Husqvarna of Atlanta. The auction will conclude on Oct. 2. I will post a notice here when the auction begins.

    I'll be working this event this Saturday, but I got to pre-ride both routes, the Sport Tour route and the Adventure Tour route. Weather is looking good for Saturday.

    Also, there are two new BMWs up for auction to ride at the event. The bid includes the entry to the event, and the bikes will be delivered to the start for the successful bidders. Auction ends 8 p.m. today.

    Might do this instead. Just found it on DRRiders. Friday and Saturday around Helen. Looks to be more of a trail ride. Water crossings, trail, etc.

    Saturday we'll be meeting about 9:00 in the parking area beside the store at Wildcat Suches. It's on Hwy 60, 5 miles north of Hwy 180 in Suches, on the left side of the road (across from the camping area).

    Never done this before so I'm not sure about the distances. Sounds like an all day event though. I'm going to head up to the Wildcat campground this afternoon and pitch a hammock for the night. Sounds like there's already some riders up there for today's ride. I'm on a '12 DR with a white helmet. See you up there!
