    Is this an off-road riding group or predominantly pavement. We both ride GS and we ride mostly 50/50
    Would like to treat my wife to a mostly female event as she feels out of place at most of my rallies even though she extremely well. Is it only tent camping or is there rv camping to....... We are Florida flattlanders and it's quite a haul.

    Cheers...... Future umbrella boy

    I don't know of any off-road riding although I have heard there are some gravel roads in the area. The pavement options are endless. Willville is 1 mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway if you like scenic and you are surrounded by good twisty roads in any direction.

    The campground itself is motocycles only so it is tent camping. There is car/trailer parking near the road entrance. Contact Will at the campground directly to inquire if he can accommodate a RV in the parking area.

    In past years the men have slightly out numbered the women at this gathering but the ratio is much better than most events. This is a very laid back gathering. Just a date and place to share a nice campfire.

    I hope to see y'all there!

    I'll check the gazetteer sometime, but even if there's no dirt (I'm sure there are at least dirt & forest roads not too far away) the street riding is great. BRP, some real twisties on some "secret" roads, lots of scenery etc., cool places to visit in Floyd & Mt. Airy

    Like HR said it's not exactly majority wimminz but it's pretty laid-back. There aren't very many drunken idiot morans, and we mostly confine ourselves to a small area and behave somewhat better than usual


    edit: btw I'm probably a +1 but not definite yet. She has horses, you know.

    Yeah. I'm still trying to work it out, but it's not looking good. I've never been to this event but my assumption is that riding is by no means the main focus. Who knows, if Laura can't make it, perhaps I can bring my goomah...

    I've never attended this event so I don't know what to expect, but I'm sure we can come up with some off pavement riding for those who would like to get a little dirty. How many people usually show up for this event?

    I'm not a girl, but I got excited when I saw Meadows of Dan. Beautiful campsite. My favorite. I live about an hour away via Parkway.

    Just to clarify about parking and such, you can only FIT motorcycles in through the entrance. Last time I was there the bushes were a bit thick and my throw-overs drug on both sides. :)

    Have fun, ladies.

    I'm guessing 20-30 depending on the weather. It is hard to say since there is no registration or anything. Think of it as going to meet old friends that you haven't met yet. Bring a chair, introduce yourself and don't be shy.

    I probably should try to update the "IN!!" List sometime.

    We accept males, but just know that there will be knitting and embroidery going on, along with hot flashes and ab judging.

    Are the abs judged on firmness or softness? I've never won anything, so I'm just testing the waters. I may have a solid chance at an award. :lol3
