Just confirming... is this on Sunday (29th)?

Looks like the weather might be decent for the first time in like 3 weeks - and I am itching for a road-trip. Thinking about riding up from ATL on Saturday. Anybody else interested in camping?

Yep.

Here's the plan as of now....so far there are at least 3 of us planning to meet at a the truck stop where 16N splits of from 421 just West of Wilkesboro @ 10:30. We'll then ride up to Freebornes to meet any others around 11ish. Hoping to have 'kickstands up' by 11:30.

From there I've put together a dirty little scouting loop of about 75 miles that can easily be extended or shortened as desired/needed.


PARTY BOSS™ Are you up for a scouting run this Sunday?

THE RIDES (so far)
There are no official rides for the Eastern Rendezvous.
We have individuals who go on rides and welcome you to ride along.
No part of your attendance fee has anything to do with any rides.
All riders are responsible for their own actions.
Above all, ride safe.

Want details for each ride? Click on each link above.
Not enough details? PM each Ride Leader.

Any others?
Post your ride anywhere on this thread,
then PM me the post# so I can link you in.

You can't have too many rides at these rallies.
More rides = fewer riders per ride = better rides.

Exploring on your own or in small groups is highly encouraged. Maybe you can learn enough roads to lead another ride next year?

Great. I'm a rock-solid maybe. Depending on where I camp, I will either meet you at the truck stop listed above or at Freebornes.

Does anyone know if the campgrounds on the BRP stay open in the winter? Seems like I remember there was one not too far south of Laurel Springs.

Kevin, can you PM me with a way I can contact you while I'm on the road? ...so I can let you know where I will meet y'all.

Look for a Black Katoom in Wilkesboro at 16N. Hopefully I will be accompanied with a Red KLR and a White DR.

you guys have fun! I'd love to go but I am afraid to take the bike out for another longish trip. It seriously needs some tlc:new head gaskets, chain started to droop like 70yo tits last night, raisers are tweaked, tires are done, salt everywhere, bark-busters popped out, but otherwise it's fine

The roads are in great shape for this time of year. Especially the gravel roads. Only some of the paved roads have a little gravel on them.
