What we're about

NGDS is not a club. No dues, no officers, no meetings outside of group rides, and very few rules. We meet every Saturday of the year rain or shine at 9:30am at Two Wheels of Suches in the grass lot across the bridge from the restaurant. Just show up and ride. No need to RSVP on this site or even be a member. No guarantees who or if anyone will show up. Use this site to contact me or other members if you have any questions, but just go have fun.

Legal blah, blah

Only you are responsible for your safety. There are no promises, implied or otherwise, that you can't get hurt or killed riding a motorcycle anytime. Every single action and decision you make while on a group ride is yours alone. No one else in the group, nor the group itself, nor Meetup.com, has any liability in case of an accident. The rides are not "club events" at all, but just a group of individuals choosing to ride together at the same time. We use this site only for communication before and after rides.

The few rules

Every ride includes public paved and dirt forest service roads, and every motorcycle must be tagged and insured. Follow all the rules of the road, including speed limits when near camping areas, etc.

Respect Two Wheels of Suche's property. We are guests and Bill (the owner) could kick us out anytime.

If you bring a truck or trailer, park it so others can maximize the space (don't leave your ramps down).

No wheelies, burnouts, or horseplay in the TWoS parking lot or immediate area.

Do not harass or even engage with hikers, bicyclists, horsemen, jeepers, or anyone else on the forest service roads who might be acting like a jerk. Let them be. Turn the other cheek. Smile and wave.

Do not intimidate less experienced riders. Encourage them. We were all beginners once.

When in doubt, act like a decent human being.

North Georgia Dual Sports Regular Saturday Ride

Two Wheels of Suches (fka TWO)

PERMANENT RIDE SCHEDULE Join us at 9:30am every Saturday at Two Wheels of Suches for our regularly-scheduled dual-sport ride, rain or shine. Arrive early. Kickstands up and the group departs at 10:00 sharp. We meet in the grass parking lot over the little bridge from the main building. No need to RSVP or even be a member, just show up and ride. This site can be used for questions, announcements, or posting pictures before and after the ride. Try not to park your trailer in the TWoS parking lot. We are their guests and have to respect Bill's (the owner) wishes. Try parking your vehicle and trailer in the Walmart in Dahlonega and riding to TWoS. The route, ride leaders, destinations, and lunch plans will be determined the morning of the ride, based on weather and attendees, etc. Read This You are the only one responsible for your safety. All dual-sport and most adventure bikes are suitable. Don't worry about what tires you have. Most of the forest service roads are pretty easy, but may include gravel, rocks, mud, an occasional rutted uphill section, and short water crossings. How "hard" the ride is depends on the route, the pace, etc. We may break up into multiple groups based on group size and how people want to ride, but there are no guarantees. Know your skills and abilities and ask questions if you're not sure which group to ride with. Use the Discussion section of this meetup.com website to post questions, suggest routes and destinations, volunteer to lead the ride, etc. This is YOUR club! A few rules 1. We will ride on paved public roads in between dirt sections. That means intersections, cars, law enforcement, etc. All bikes must be tagged and insured. 2. We often pass and interact with runners, bicyclists, cars, Jeeps, and horses. Never harass others, even if they are being assholes. Just let it go. 3. No horseplay, wheelies, etc. in the TWoS parking lot. Park your truck and trailer carefully. Try to spend some money at the restaurant. If the owner Bill gets pissed off at something you do, you will not be welcome to ride with us anymore. 4. No showing off or intimidating less experienced riders. No one gets left behind. 5. Do not speed around anyone else, including around campsites near the forest service roads. 6. If you are a first timer, let someone know. If you are an expert and have a burning need for everyone to know it, you probably want to ride with a different group. 7. Know your limits and never let peer pressure make you do something you're uncomfortable with. Only you are responsible for your own safety. You will probably fall off your motorcycle or crash and injuries are possible. 8. We are often out of cell phone range. Always bring water, and try to bring a spare tube and some tools. We seldom go more than 40 or 50 miles between gas stops. We will stop for lunch so bring some money. 9. Feel free to let someone know if you need to peel off mid-ride and head for home. 10. Know your bike's fuel range.
