    Ok guys, I made a little 1200 mile run this past weekend on my G650XCo to the GMR in Hiawassee. I have not been a serious rally-goer but this event was about the nicest one I've ever attended. The location is spectacular, the hosts very hospitable and the weather was superb.

    Take a look here and be sure to click on the pics enough to get them to go full-size.

    Thanks for the photos! You took all the great pictures I forgot to try for (and probably couldn't get). I'm even famous. Well, my campsite and truck are, anyway. Again, thanks for sharing.

    Great looking steak! Mine was... a bit more done than that. I would say I'm a slow learner, but that would be generous.

    I had to fight for mine. Some poor old guy who was confused thought my steak was his and tried to take it off the grill. He kept saying "mine looked just like that!"

    Thanks for posting the pictures. Makes me kinda miss the BMW rallies I use to chase around the country. I think the Georgia Mountain Rally always was on the same date as the Wilderness Rally in the boondocks of Arkansas.

    The Alabama Rocket City or "Chicken" Rally (they serve grilled chicken all day) is coming up soon and I may make that one too.

    I've been to the " Chicken Rally " a few times in the late 90's. Always fun and much to see about the area.

    I was back up there this weekend and saw even more storm damage. It's amazing.
