Ran into a few GSX owner(s)

Up in Suches GA at Two Wheels only couple a weeks ago. Pic of my bike (left) and the guys bike I met that day at TWO. Actually the next day I ran into two more GSX owners up near Tellico Plains TN. One was on a red and black GSX 1000 and other was on a blue GSX 750. Did not get a picture of those bikes.

Anyway it was nice talking to all the owners about this bike. This was the same weekend my fuel pump went out so I was on my Africa Twin when I ran into the two up in Tellico.

Nice! I've yet to see any but mine anywhere except in the motorcycle show. It always feels like I've got the only one ever built.

Great roads out that way, it’s been a few years since I’ve been. I have two others ones in our riding group, a 750 and another 1000 to go along with mine.

Suches GA is motorcycle heaven ALL the roads great. I had lunch at TWO and I put a pin on the map they have hanging on the wall, I wonder if it's still there. I was staying at Fontana Dam resort, all around there is some of the best riding in the country.

I went up there 4 times this year. Bummer the GSX had the pump issue on the last trip. My Honda saved the trip though.

I had the house on wheels this trip and all by myself. First two days the weather was gorgeous but last two days were cool and windy. Still had a good time and managed 741 miles total between the two bikes.

I usually just tent camp and either ride the Honda up or open trailer my bike and a friends bike up and we tent camp. This trip I decided to take the house. My truck needed the workout.

Nice Pit Bull brackets, my buddy has those and loves them.

I've been out that way with my FJR and with my supermoto I had at the time. Need to get my GSX-S somewhere fun like that.

Where do you camp at out of curiosity? My wife and I have a Toy Hauler as well and have not seen many places that can accommodate our 37ft hauler.

You can boon dock camp in the TWO car parking lot. Loud generators are discouraged of course. There are no hook ups there. Skeenah Gap campground about 10 miles north on 60 has full hook ups and is reasonable. We've stayed there before.
