20 Seconds Twisties - Wolf Pen Gap Road in N GA

Here is a 20-second taste of one of the sections on the Six Gap ride.

The light and nimble CTX700 with its short rake and high clearance performs very well on these roads!

I've ridden that road quite a number of times. One of my favorites.

Do you live in that area RedBaron? Some of my favorite roads up there! It is a sweet road and if I am ever near it, I always take the time to ride it. I have done it on sport bikes, cruisers and adventure bikes. All fun no matter what. For everyone that might ride it, watch out for bicyclists on that road too! Thanks for the video!
At 2:57 sec into the video, is Wolf Pen Gap ride:

@Thumper: I live in GA and am in Dahlonega for 6 weeks. Riding this area on weekdays is the best: too much traffic (motorcycles, packs of bicyclists) on the weekends! I didn't have much time to do video editing last night, so I settled for one little section which flowed nicely.

Nice area up here. I noticed that cars actually LOOK and WAIT for motorcyclists. This is such a motorcycle mecca, I guess people just get used to motos being everywhere.

Yes! Love that area! Stay at Copperhead lodge ande rent a cabin a Vogel sometimes. You just can't find bad roads roads up here. We are in Darien tonight and heading up to Greenville tomorrow. Then on to Franklin N.C. for the next three days. Not sure after that but may have to head back to the heat. Very nice right now in Darien at 7:30 by the pool! Anyone coming through here, I recommend Skippers Fish Camp for food. Excellent!

We love those roads up there. Looks like they paved Wolf Pen Gap Rd. Love the ride up over Blood Mountain too. Another great one is take Hwy 60 south into Dahlonega. Love the stream next to the road on the way down...

@GeorgiaRider: yes, Wolf Pen Gap Rd was paved last year. It is really nice. I wish they'd pave rte 60 between Dahlonega and Suches. A LOT of road snakes and dips on the outside edges of the road, making it a little sketchy to pick a proper line. I have some GoPro of both Blood Mountain (up and down sides) as well as that rte 60 area, just need to time to go edit it!
