One of the members of the BMW Motorcycle Owners of Georgia put together a great ride across Fort Mountain in Northern Georgia. And to make it more interesting he led us on a new BMW K1600GTL demo motorcycle! The K1600 is BMW’s new inline 6 cylinder motorcycle. There was a total of 22 motorcycles that showed up for the ride. We met in Cherokee County and took off up Ga Hwy372 and headed on into Forsyth County and back out to Ga Hwy 53 towards Dawsonville. Then before getting to Dawsonville we headed up Ga Hwy 183 and 52 on into Ellijay to head across Fort Mountain and its great twisting road. It was “spirited” ride to the point that in some of the curves I was scraping the kickstand! That’s always a fun sound to here. Once we crossed the mountain we stopped in Chatsworth for lunch at Village Cafeteria. After lunch some of the group headed back across the mountain while others headed off in other directions or headed for home. Donna and I took a nice leisurely ride down Highway 441 before cutting across heading to Canton and then on home. When we got home we had ridden a total of 177 miles and during the ride the “Magic Carpet” had its odometer pass 58,000 miles with a total of 58,083 miles when we got back home.
