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.
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
Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort
17548 Tapoco Road
Robbinsville, NC 28771

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.

awesome....I'm riding the Blue Ridge Parkway a couple weeks after that
this'll be a cool prelude
That road is awesome! I crashed the shit out of a Kawasaki ZX6r on there about 11 years ago. Good times!!
Get the fuck out. NC is Actually getting to be a descent place.

there is another campground on the Tennessee side maybe 5miles from the dragon its where they have the Tellico biker rally and the big mountain run was there last year
Darn other side of the country and no time to ride there and back . I do like the Glam Rock album cover art for the poster .
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.
damn this sounds like a cool time, I may just have to check it out.
you planning on heading out jet?
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.
Anyone else have Kenny loggins playing in their heads all day? Jet you better be there. Your the historical specialist. Who else can give us tours while talking choppers all at the same time?
