After attending the MotoGP round at Indy for the last five years I had to opt out for this years race for various reasons. To help ease the pain I decided to book a lodge room at the recently (re)opened Two Wheels of Suches (TWoS) located in the heart of the beautiful North Georgia Mountains.
Upon arriving at TWoS on a Friday evening I found several folks gathered on the spacious front porch enjoying conversation and a few cold beverages. One of those people was the new owner, Bill Johnston. I feel as though I spoke for many local and out-of-area riders as I thanked Bill for bringing the place back to life after the original TWO had closed down a few years earlier. The work that Bill and his staff have put into the lodge and campground has resulted in the perfect place for motorcyclists to gather right in the middle of some of the best riding roads in the Nation.
Located on the lower level of the lodge is the restaurant. Along with the dining tables there is a large sofa facing the fireplace which has a big screen TV mounted above it and the walls have been decorated with some cool moto-memorabilia. Mary and the rest of the kitchen staff cook-up some tasty eats on the weekends with breakfast being served from 7 to 10 AM and lunch from 11 AM to 4 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.
The upper level of the lodge has three guest rooms and a large lounging area complete with comfy chairs and a TV, a kitchen and a large restroom with a shower. There is a side entrance which allows for access after the dining room has closed.
There is plenty of room for socializing on the front porch which has about a dozen large wooden chairs on it for relaxing while the large side deck is outfitted with several picnic tables. Of course the main parking area is designated for motorcycles and is where much bike checking out and tire kicking take place. A car and truck parking area has also been added across the creek with a shiny new metal pedestrian bridge connecting it to the main motorcycle parking area.
The camping area has been expanded and offers many great places to pitch a tent. A just recently completed bathhouse is located on the back section of the campgrounds and with several creeks and streams running through the property TWoS looks to have one of the nicest campgrounds in the general area.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at TWoS and I’m looking forward to returning there soon and often (not a paid advertisement mind you as I was a paying guest). Bill, Mary and the rest of the TWoS staff have done a fine job of bringing this beloved two wheel destination back into being and I think you’ll agree when you visit there for yourself if you haven’t already.
