    IN. See you all friday the 18th, about 6pm. Will be staying thru Sunday morning.




    If y'all don't mind, I'd like to spot myself along some of the rides with my camera, and see if I can't get some good action shots. (Can't take credit for the idea, though. It was Rob & Carmen's idea...)

    I will make sure I get you a copy of our ride so you can find a good spot to take pics. I will be there early and Barbie will be there Thursday evening with the truck with the tent pitched in the bed. White Duramax 2500.

    Can't wait to meet everyone and looking foward to the rides. I was up at the cabin in Franklin,NC last week and got to see rain,snow,cold & hot in six days time, hope the weather is better for the rdv. Four seasons in one week! I was teasing Ben about us both being noobs and how we would look in desses and beleive me you will see the whitest,skinniest knobby and scarred up gams in existence so be forewarned. Will see ya there and will bring some white whiskey for a toast to The Party Boss! I wish I had the pleasure of meeting him. God Bless, Wayne

    Anyone interested in a medium to fast paced street ride with aprox 340 miles of twisties to include: A short section of the BRP, Peak Valley, part of Roan Valley, parts of Rough Ridge, The Snake (Hwy 421), and Watauga Point. I'll be doing this loop on Fri leaving at 830am (no idea where lunch will be at this time). I will be riding a Yamaha FZ1 so this is a 100% street Ride.

    2-up riders are welcome
    Any bike is welcome (keeping in mind there wont be any off-road sections)

    I don't do the relay thing as others posted about. As this is a street ride with fewer turns I will stop at each turn to wait on all riders.

    PLEASE ride your ride at YOUR pace. -- If the rider behind you is faster please let them around by moving over and motioning them around when possible. If the rider in front is slower than you please don't buzz them, wait until it's a legal passing zone to pass or until the other rider moves over and motions you around.

    Gas stops will be determined by the bike with the least range.

    Any other questions or concerns please feel free to PM me.

    but I gotta know how many folks we have each night (roughly) - so if you haven't answered the attendance poll, now it's your time :deal




    and I know you are mostly guys and don't need no freaking instructions, but please do me a favor and read 'em before voting :hide

    counting down the days. So excited but sad at the same time. Ready to see some people/friends from last year and meet all the new ones. Was looking over the rides list and having trouble deciding on two. I did Knybanjo's ride
    last year and had fun. I was ahead of the split, sorry for the one's left behind. Need a ride that goes to a good
    North Carolina bar-b-que dive. Need to try that sauce. Fat boys gotta eat. Hopefully ride one day w/ Mud puppy and Sangfroid had fun last year w/ them. 3 klrs and 2 v stroms doing the snake. See everyone on thursday afternoon.
    Pridemore1 :D

    Mike,
    As of last month that parking lot was unavailable. Stations Inn is closed and their big parking lot across the street next to Freebornes was barricaded. Also as of that time the Tiki Bar had not yet been replaced either.

    So NO Tiki Bar, NO Stations Inn and NO parking lot across from Stations Inn. :dunno

    OK,

    Knybanjo, meet at 1030 in grassy area behind Freeborne's MOTEL.

    257 BOB, meet at 930 in grassy area behind Freeborne's MOTEL.

    Wlfman, meet at 830 in grassy area behind Freeborne's MOTEL.

    Wlfman please delete the big quote in post 1275 because it is now inaccurate.

    FancyIndigo, are you leading a ride ???

    Thanx guys.

    OK, Mike, I edited my original ride post. Shouldn't be an issue, I don't get many riders anyway. :D
