Now we had this rock star KLR with us today. Take that Tenere
Great riding today. Walking Stick Road was a great challenge.
Has there ever been a Trans anything where there was not a GS stuck in the mud???
Ever since Ewen and Charlie.
Wasn’t sure whether to include it on the route or not because it’s always been a little sketchy but looks like everyone made it thru relatively unscathed.
Absolutely my favorite section of the day! Thanks for including it!
Loved it. It was exactly the type of trail I was hoping for.
My comment afterwards, was something to the effect of "at least no one is complaining about too much pavement "
If you listen carefully as you ride under the big rebel flag you can hear the banjo music....
Only took 1140 miles this weekend to get rid of those annoying bumps on my rear tire. Ready for the dragon now.
I just got home.
Great fun! Thanks to everyone for making it a great time. Thanks to Not Beefcake Nick for lunch. That was awesome!
Now I'm on my recliner couch with my feets propped up, resting my achy muscles. But it's a good ache! That I-did-something-worthwhile ache.
Those side bumps might need some work before the Dragon...
So as an overview of the ride, we had great weather. We did have to by pass 4 bridges that were out, due to previous heavy rains in Georgia about month before the ride. Here are some of my photos
We begin with clear sunny skies and everyone celebrates no rain
We turn down our first dirt road and now everyone is bitching there has been no rain
So a little sand, to get the blood flowing
Here Nick I think is complaining to Courtney about the sand
Then I think Courtney slaps him
Things firm up as we continue
We get to lunch on time
roads start to get very nice
Courtney Sweeping with flair
Next day off we go again after a nice evening of cantilevered logs on the fire...
Starting to get some elevation changes
Obligatory Group shot
The fast moving water crossing...and ignore that sand in the fore ground. There is no sand in Georgia
Back to fast paced clay
One of those bridges I mentioned
a little re-routing
Still having fun
The union required break
Day 3 in the mountains
A taste of the woods
We are finally headed home
I hope that gives all a sense of the Trans Georgia Rally It was a great time
It was an UNBELIEVABLE time. The Trans Ga is my favorite ride. The scenery, the dirt, the elevation - all change from one hour to the next over the whole 3 days. And the route? Fantastic, I don't think it could have been better. I enjoyed those bridge outings (some strong internal debate as whether to send it or not). I have a pic I'll post of one.
Thanks for setting up BBQ, Rich. That was perfect.
I really enjoyed seeing everyone again, great group as usual.
And cantilevered logs - who ever heard of such! DUMB.
What, no muddy highsides? How could you have possibly had fun without that?
Well, we had no @microtom to give us those laughs this time! He did promise next time though
I took the liberty to share your parking
Here's a link to a song performed by Blind Willie McTell.
Day 2 was an all new route this year, day 1 was 60-70% new. Day 3 had four options/routes, not sure how many were used or if any actually got completed : )
Had to pay my dues…
For anyone interested in seeing more of Brian's rally style KLR, he has a YouTube channel that documents the build process. He's still catching up on making videos. This rally was the first time the bike touched dirt.
