    Default Skyway to the Dangerzone!

    Alright dudes, it's been a little while since we (Biltwell) did a new event, and we're kinda sick of riding in the desert. Our two Mike's went on the Quad Cam Bastards Bash in North Carolina earlier this year and fell in love with the area, Tail of the Dragon, Wheels Through Time Museum, Deal's Gap, etc.

    S2DZ

    So, we've put together a simple event that goes something like this:

    Friday night: Party down at Deal's Gap / Camp there or at the other locations listed at the bottom of this page

    Saturday morning: Ride to Wheels Through Time from Deals Gap: Kickstands up at 9:00AM

    Saturday night: Free BBQ and Beer at Deal's Gap (while supplies last, but it'll be generous)

    Sunday: Ride yer ass home

    May 2-4


    Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort
    17548 Tapoco Road
    Robbinsville, NC 28771

    Food, Beer, Firewood, and Gas all available for purchase at the venue.

    This is rain or shine!

    There is no entry fee of any kind, but of course you'll have to pay a few bucks to whatever campground you decide to crash at.

    Limited camping available at Deal's Gap Motorcycle Resort: First Come, First Serve

    Overflow camping:
    -- Hidden Waters Campground - 828-479-3509
    -- Mtn View School Campground - 828-498-2308
    -- Tumbling Waters - 828-479-3814
    -- The Simple Life Campground - 828-479-1099

    Hope to see a bunch of you there!

    I'm stoked, can't wait to ride the tail of the dragon after reading about it all these years.

    Ha ha nice! My home state, I hope it serves everyone well for this event, I've been all through the area many times, lots of cool stuff, acres and acres of national park to ride through, it connects into the Appalachian Trail, free camp grounds tourist traps like gem stone mining, mystery hill etc. as well as the Blue Ridge Pkwy too. I'll probably be living in Florida when this rolls around, but my calendar is marked.

    Yeah Ima try and make it there for sure, my Toyota MH should be modded up by then as well as the scoot ima hitch mount on it... if not I'll just ride up from Florida if I'm down there, on the Butter Glider if I still have it, if not then the lil CM I'm still bouncing build plans on.

    Oh, btw fellas bring something to insulate you very very well from the ground, even in July and August the mountain ground can fucking freeze you to the bone getting the teeth chattering like a skeleton, and since this is slated for early May... plan for the ground temp to feel like sleeping directly on a sheet of ice if you don't take my advice.

    Tours? haha I will say a reserve fuel cell is almost a requirement with a 2 gallon or less tank, on a GPS there when it works... the signal is blocked most of the time by the mountains, it will say something like 3 miles to where you wanna go, but by the time you've wrapped all around the kick backs etc, you've gone 15 miles... but bear in mind if you run out on the way up, you can turn it around and coast it all the way back down and if lucky, hit a station which are few and far between btw. I hit fumes many times and ran out once, before I learned to just ride the clutch on down hills feathering brakes to save gas, I saw a few dudes pushing up hill last year after being out of gas and all I could do was shake my head... no stations up top just in the valleys.
