Great rally, great people, great roads!
Who needs the Dragon when you've got GA 180?

Yes, I rode that route many times at the first BIBR at TWO. The Norton national was over in Hiawassee.
Beautiful road, and nowhere near the traffic of the Dragon.

Yup! 'Bout anywhere you turn in this area is a good road.

They used to wait until Sunday for the field events and to give away the rally bike that afternoon. So many folks had a long trip home, they compressed everything into Saturday. Everyone just bugs out on Sunday.

OK, I admit it, I'm addicted to brake fluid.

But I can stop any time I want.
