Saturday October 28th is the date for this years True Grits 50cc rally in Suches GA.  I plan on attending this year.  I have been there during the event in years past and always thought it looked like a blast but I didn't have a 50cc bike to participate.  This year they are opening in to Grom sized bikes so I will be riding my Kymco Super 8.  It's a little bigger than a Grom at 150cc but performance should be similar. 

I'll be trucking my bike to Two Wheels of Suches on Friday and departing on Sunday afternoon.  For those of you with small bikes, this should be a lot of fun.  Here's a link to the info on this rally:  http://www.champsclock.com/50cc.htm

I will be camping.  Be advised that if you want to camp it will most likely be cold as Suches is at 2800 feet elevation.

There is an entry fee but it goes to a good cause.  Since it is all run on public roads you don't have to register to ride along but I plan on registering.  I will register on site so I can just cancel if the weather looks crappy.   If you don't have a suitable bike you can still show up and have a great weekend riding the awesome roads in the area. 

The actual ride starts at 1:30 in the afternoon.  You could come up just for the day and not camp or find a motel.  I plan on doing some riding in the morning and Sunday morning as well. 

I know we have a few other members with suitable bikes.  Anyone else interested in doing this?

always wanted to go, and this has been on my list for weeks, need to wait till that week to commit.
I want to shoot ground video, and maybe do some other interesting stuff besides riding?
Where are you camping?  Will there be space?  I can always find woods nearby if not?

I will camp at Two Wheels of Suches.  It's a great facility and many of the participants will be staying there.  I think it's 15 bucks a night to camp.  There is a restaurant on site.  http://twowheelsofsuches.com/

Since there are no fixed camp sites, there is always room.
