Riders and passengers each
register separately ~ ThanksJoin the BMW Motorcycle Club of Georgia at the 2013 Georgia Mountain Rally, Hiawassee, Georgia over the weekend of Friday, May 3rd to Sunday May 5th, 2013.
Some of the finest and twistiest road and dual-sport destinations in the southeast make the Georgia Mountain Rally a must. Your base will be the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds in Hiawassee, Georgia (N34 57.821 W83 46.289) featuring beautiful lakeside camping with full facilities, great food, and great vendors.
A terrific destination in itself, Hiawassee provides easy access to some of the finest road and dual-sport rides in the country, including legendary Georgia highways 2, 17, 60, 76, 129/Blood Mountain, 180, 348/Richard Russell Scenic Parkway, the Deals Gap/Tail of the Dragon, Cherohala Skyway, and literally hundreds of little-known local roads, plus endless dual-sport riding throughout the Chattahoochee and Nantahala National Forests and the Cohutta Wilderness.
In addition, Hiawassee and its neighboring communities provide an unmatched variety and quality of stores and restaurants that makes time out of the saddle just as rewarding as slicing though some highway turns or plugging through some off-road mud.
