A weekend of fairly easy Dual-Sport riding.
Mostly two-track, lots of gravel, some rocks, some dirt. Weather should be mild/cool 50-75 degrees Fahrenheit
A long standing Southeastern tradition for the MSTA, we kick-off the riding season in style at the North Georgia Classic. This year, we will rally for 3 days out of one of our historical locations, a "Classic" spot...if you will. The quite town of Dillard, in beautiful Rabun County, will play host this year.
The GMR returns to the ever-popular picturesque fairgrounds in Hiawassee between Friday May 3 and Sunday May 5, 2024.
This area of the Appalachians offers rewarding twisties - including Deal’s Gap, the Cherohala Skyway and the Blue Ridge Parkway - inspiring vistas and renowned mountain hospitality. Plus, it’s dual-sport heaven for all skill levels. Truly the perfect start to anyone’s riding season!
