True Grits 50cc Fun Run 2017 - Suches, GA

Saturday October 28th 2017

a 70 mile 50cc ride through the mountains of North Georgia. Easily the best time on a moped/scooty/50shifty you'll ever have. Last year diamond dogs and QCB homies came down. They can vouch for how rad it is.

videos don't do it justice. Really well maintained roads with banked hairpins up and down the mountains.

their adorable site

Swoops @ 1:50

I think this is my year dudes!!!!

I'm a little concerned with running slicks, but wrangling my little 50 thru those twisties has got to happen

Some years the ambient temp is pretty chilly but you could bring your tire warmers and genny if you were super worried about it.

Re: True Grits 50cc Fun Run 2017 - Suches, GA

my biggest concern is moisture for sure, and maybe I'll come across a set of wets before, or borrow some. I have no need for street tires in the 125 sizing

if not I have the AR, still fun, totally not as fun in corners tho

Re: True Grits 50cc Fun Run 2017 - Suches, GA

The YSR I rode last year and bobby's metrakit both had dunlop slicks and they were okay.

Re: True Grits 50cc Fun Run 2017 - Suches, GA

I'm just hoping i recover financially enough from this hurricane nonsense to make it up there. Last year was so much fun!

Your commentary Andy was worth it.

Re: True Grits 50cc Fun Run 2017 - Suches, GA

This event is a ton of fun! Those twisty switchbacks up there are awesome! Going to Nola this year, so funds might be tight, but trying to work it out if I can.

Re: True Grits 50cc Fun Run 2017 - Suches, GA

easily some of the best roads in the country, shared with over 100 of the raddest 50 shifties and mopeds throughout history, plus at the same time it's a pretty unique chance to (often not always) race alongside legendary rider dave aldana <3
