This Dual Sport M/C event is open to all dual sport and adventure motorcyclist, located in the heart of the best riding in the mountains of Tn, NC and Ga. We use the term Hootenanny because that's what we gonna have!
Hootenanny is a Scottish word meaning "celebration" and / or "party".
With the Scots being one of the biggest groups of settlers in the Appalachian region of North America (bringing with them their whisky-making tradition and methods, leading to the area's "moonshining" tradition) it is not surprising that hootenanny became an Appalachian colloquialism, although it became used in early 20th-century America as a placeholder name to refer to things whose names were forgotten or unknown. In this usage it was synonymous with thingamajig or whatchamacallit, as in: "Hand me that hootenanny." Hootenanny was also an old country word for "party". Nowadays the word most commonly refers to a folk music party with an open mic, at which different performers are welcome to get up and play in front of an audience.
Riding motorcycles is what you're coming for and you'll get plenty of that riding smooth hard packed gravel roads to single track trails and knee deep stream crossings, riding from 800 ft. elevations to 5500 ft. with fantastic views, this central location will give you quick access to the most sought after riding in three states.
