adness began by getting
out as early as we could after winter, packin' up the adventure motorcycles and ridin' /campin' with friends
for a few days in the mountains of east TN. Now MMM's
annual event in Tellico Plains since 2006. In 2012 the GS Giants, www.GSGiants.com
, a BMWMOA chartered adventure / dual sport motorcycle club, joined us.
We've primarily been dual sport oriented but the areas great diversity of roads has broadened our
range of riders. Great twisty asphalt (Cherohala Skyway, the Dragon), groomed gravel (the Dirt Dragon) or gnarly single
track (trail 81 or 82). Food is always great thanks to Cigar Man Don's culinary prowess and Lt Dan's
nearly famous Huevos Rancheros. The date is set using the Old Farmer's Almanac which is touted to be
80% accurate. This year we'll be back at 801 Steer Creek Rd, Tellico Plains, TN and there's plenty of room
for trucks / trailers, tents and more M
adness . Camp
is closer to Tellico Plains (nice if you need to make a run to town for beverages) at the site of the Tellico Biker
. Make sure to stop and see Mike at Tellico Motorcycle Outfitter's, www.TellicoMoto.com
and also support other local business' in town. We're sure a lot of new friendships will be kindled around
the campfire this year and stoked again in the years to come.
