THIS was my last trip to TWO last labor day...the first night of 8 scattered up the parkway.
this was in 2008. we trailered in the bikes and camped with all the toys, air mattress, big cooler...a lot of stuff to do in that area that all begins with an excellent ride in any of three directions.
Yeah that is some sad news. I have a lot of good memories from that place.
Here's one my friend Bob S. while we were beating around north GA and western NC on our Bandits.
Me and my Bandit (RIP).
One of my favorite memories was about 7 or 8 years ago: I left the AMA race at Barber and rode straight to TWO. The weekend of a Superbike race meant lots of folks at TWO, right? I had zero vittles and no real provisions-I was banking on the kitchen being open. Imagine my surprise when I found that the lodge was closed (no food!). Luckily, there was a couple from the UK traveling around the world on their Yamaha's. (Theirs is a great story).
Lew and Anita shared their food and beer with me. Just a trio of motorcyclists enjoying the atmosphere of TWO.
And there's not even time for one last trip up there.
Taken in 2003 - first time I met Ara (BeemerChef). I think this was some random Monday, and I'd run by TWO for lunch. Ara stopped me and asked if I was Linzi from ADVRider.
Easter Weekend ADV campout in 2004. Pengy, one of my favorite people, provided the entertainment and probably some of the moonshine.
Ara and Brit, 2004.
Another random Monday ride, only bike in the lot, 2004.
2004 True Grits 50cc Fun Run.
Rebel Yell III, 2005.
I have a bunch more that people, now with families and children, would probably not appreciate being posted.
I will really, really miss TWO. Unfortunately, with a family and children and other obligations of my own, it's been a while since I've made it down there. But, it was always such a warm, familiar place to get a burger and a smile. The place to go if you just loved the ride and weren't so concerned with being seen.
I just went by there the other day and wondered why they weren't open on such a beautiful weekend.
Any reason given for the closing? Another victim to the economy?
The land owners won't renew the lease.
LINZI!!! how are you my ancient Friend?...
This is so so sad! It was my first home... not my second one...'
I have plenty of photos on a hard drive I will look for...
Some from the annual 50CC ride...
Be well... Ara & Spirit
Any idea what's going to happen to the land and building?
How about an RV park because there's definitely not enough of those in N. GA.
It's for sale if you'd like to buy it.
Short story long is that the land has been inherited by brothers that live out of state. The problem is that they won't just sell or lease the land that TWO sits on and want to sell the entire 68+- acres they've inherited all together as one chunk. I think you could pick up the whole works for around 1.5 mil.

The bear out front got molested too.

Always properly lick that beaver.
Never leave your bike where your "friends" can get to it.
Ara, great pics from the 50cc rally. It brings back memories of my first visit to TWO. I rode up from Pensacola in October of 1990. As I came over Woody Gap on 60 I saw a rider in full leathers coming towards me. I hadn't seen anyone wearing full leathers since moving from San Diego 10 months earlier. As he got closer something didn't look right, the proportion just wasn't right:huh
The guy was riding a Yamaha YSR 50. Less than a minute later, along came 3 more 50cc sport bikes:huh What's going on here? A couple of minutes later I pulled in to TWO and discovered that there was a 50cc rally going on.
That was my first time there. I've been going back regularly since. I have a bunch of old photos I need to dig out and scan so I can post them.
That's a lot of cheeseburgers to sell just to break even.
York PA 1985 H-D had an open house & very few came. We had 4 to a room at $19.95 a night. H-D York had free museum, factory tour & food.
As you can see the crowds were huge waiting for free food after riding all day.
WTF does this have to do with TWO?
TWO was part of the ride for more rides than I can remember. This next pic was taken by RichardU with his GoPro and posted in one of my RRs.
As usuel, people were sitting outside enjoying great food, great company, and great weather. There was always in interesting colection of bikes parked outside.
There were many stuffed animals in the lodge.
They had all been hit by vehicles.
Some one had added glasses since if they had been able to see the vehicles that hit them, they would have moved out of the way and not ended up here. Obviously they needed glasses
More pics of the ghosts that lurk in the campground. :eek1
Killed many a brain cell with good friends there...
and I always enjoyed looking for the snapping turtles in the creek...
this is truly sad... I only spent one long weekend there but it felt like home...
they allowed us to park our bikes here for an (irrational) thought of having them stolen
our TWO rally two years ago
