    Word is Bill Johnson a local resident and long time TWOer has purchased the property and has plans to re-open in Spring 2013. TWO is my favorite place on earth PERIOD. Bill is a real class guy and I have no doubt TWO will be better than ever but still retain the charm it used to have. When TWO closed I literally felt like a friend died. Now I am exstatic ! I will be there opeing day and stay a week! Its my understanding that it will be TWO inc. since evidently the TWO name cant be used.

    LOVE TWO! THANK YOU BILL JOHNSON

    Took a ride to Suches last weekend and stopped at TWO to check it out. I stopped, took some pics and then went over to the Suches gas station where I ran into the new owner. He plans on reopening sometime in April although opening the campground may be delayed due to needing to pour concrete for the new bath house. He doesn't want to do this during the winter.

    Anyway, here's some pics:

    As you can see, the building has been repainted and the first part of the driveway has been paved. This means we will no longer be able to watch unskilled riders panic over the gravel and steep:lol3 grade and on some occasions drop their bikes:cry

    Looking towards the road:

    The frame to this old trailer will be used to replace the old bridge to the campground.

    The old trailer is gone except for the foundation:

    The old shed where people often parked their bikes is gone.

    The front porch looks so much different with that 4 bedroom gone. Stayed in there one time.

    Glad to see the entrance paved, but definitely going to miss the wobbly newbies coming in there. :lol3 Although I heard over the years some riders avoided the place just because of the entrance, so probably not a bad move.

    My very first trip to ride in the mountains included TWO, and my best friend George. He was killed in 2007 due to a senseless act of violence, so TWO holds a very special place in my heart. I'm very happy to see the doors reopen.

    From my 1st trip to the area in 1995 on my new BMW R11GS and just running into the place. Never knew it was there. Met some fine people , including advice on where to roam.

    A map on how it was laid out back then.

    A map Frank drew with close direction from several at the table.

    Will never forget and will get back there one day.

    Wow! Seeing that map is going to make me find the one Frank made me in 2000 I believe. Living in Atlanta, I'm ashamed to say I didn't go to North GA until well into my riding career. So the first time I was there (I'd already heard about legend Frank prior to my arrival), I run into Frank talking about some area to another guy. I asked him if he'd tell me where he was talking about. He looked me dead in the eye and said "I'll draw it out if you can follow directions!"

    I cannot wait for it reopen, whatever the name will be (it won't be T.W.O.)

    Also I really, really hope GT finds a suitable location to open T.W.O. 2. I know he's been looking...

    Here's another video made by Air2Spare. It shows a typical ride in the Suches area with TWO as the lunch stop.

    My local riding group here in central NC posted up about a trip to N. Ga, to stay at the new TWO. I haven't heard back from my local guys about what they know, but does anybody here know anything about an official opening? They said it's supposed to be called TWO Wheels of Suches.

    Is there a thread or something about it on here that I just can't find?

    The last 'official' thing I heard was from a friend of the new owner that said his initial plan of April has been pushed back to May. When in May I don't know, but I bet you he'll move Heaven and Earth to keep that plan. He doesn't want to miss out on Memorial Day weekend!

    It's been fun looking at the old photos. In the big scheme of things I'm a TWO noob -- my first trip to TWO was in 1996. Since thing I've stayed there a half-dozen times.

    I agree with the inmate who noted that waiting an hour for food was a pain but I sure hated to see the place close. Does anyone know for sure if the name will still be TWO when it reopens?

    And is there a web site yet?

    Unless GT sells him the name (and I doubt it since he was looking for a new location last year), it will still have the acronym, but not the true name. Will people still call it T.W.O.? Of course. The new owner was obviously smart enough to figure a name that kept those three letters prominently there.

    And the wait for food? I didn't mind it one bit. It's not McDonalds folks. They made it as you ordered it.

    I can't wait for it to reopen. It's just not the same pulling into an empty parking lot for a breather.

    WOW!! Fantastic news!

    Don't think anyone could visit there and not have great memories of the other riders you meet, the food, just the all out good times.

    Remember riding my 730lb st1300 over that entry way gravel and thinking... hmmm, this could be a little hairy ;) Going over the bridge to the camp ground was a bit of a pucker too!

    We were warned to arrive early for dinner as the locals loved the food there. Man was that ever true! The line ended up well out into the parking lot, but no one seemed to care, the food was great and everyone enjoyed it.

    Great place, great place, glad to hear this!

    Cheers
