    Thanks Dave,
    Had business in North Georgia Friday. Took a bike on the trailer hoping to ride Saturday on the way home. Bike had a fuel pump failure. I spent so much time looking for a fuel pump on the drive back that I ended up missing everything.
    Looking forward to next year.......

    Seeing the pics makes me jealous. Wish the bike was running so I could play in the mud with y’all! Looks like damn good time riding and camping...Next year for sure.

    345 miles round trip. Thanks to everyone there for a great time at chuckle head central.
    Thanks to @sperz1 for leading the ride over. Was a great trip through some back country I seldom get to see:nod

    Thank you Cads for putting on a great ride. Thanks to leaders of the C group. Extra thanks to Mike on sweep. You went above and beyond to help the group. As always your a quality guy. Had the best time riding this event of any of the rides so far. I will be back next year. Loved the more trail and less slab riding of this event.
    Great riding with you guys. Be safe

    I just got home and rinsed all the mud cakes off the bike from yesterday’s ride. Also bolted the stock windscreen back on after having my touring screen busted off on the trail on Friday :-)

    A solid 500mile round trip weekend with ~130ish in the woods with kaosrider’s excellent guidance of the D-group. This was my first real off-roading experience of any kind and your coaching really helped me out. Thank you CADS for putting on such a great event and I’ll be looking forward to next year!!
