    How many miles of pavement to get up there? Sounds like a few small bikes are going, I'm interested trying to figure out logistics, and tire choice.

    There is some pavement but it's mostly dirt roads, probably 70-75%. It's 4 full days of riding so make it as comfortable as possible, and depending on where you start and end day 4 could be more pavement. Ideally you're going to want at least 150 mile range to keep from slowing the group you're in. Tires, you won't need knobbies especially on that bike.

    I think about coming from Virginia on a GSA with 70/30 tires. How big bike friendly is it. Was thinking about my DR650 but the GSA would be a lot more comfy on the ride there and back.

    Does anyone want to share a two bedroom cabin Sat/Sun night at Tugaloo State Park ? PM me if so. If this is still up then I'm still looking. FYI I've been told I snore pretty loudly but we will be in separate bedrooms.

    It's 97.5% big bike friendly.

    Unless it rains in Georgia anywhere between I-16 and I-85, then it won't matter either way.

    Or just apply the unofficial CADS motto: On your bike you'll be fine : )

    I'm going to have to slow my group down because the 690 will be on fumes at 150 miles

    You should be fine, I might've exaggerated a little. Wouldn't hurt to pack a syphon hose tho..

    FWIW the first time we rode it about 8 years ago there were two DR650's and four DRZ400's, nobody ran out of gas.

    Will someone with a JetBoil with French Press insert make coffee for me in the mornings?
