V-Strom Gathering East - May 14-17 2015

The Twelfth Annual V-Strom Gathering East is scheduled for May 14-17 2015, held at the Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge in Stecoah, NC.

The Ironhorse will hold all of the rooms and cabins for our event until January 15th, so make your reservations ASAP (phone 828-479-3864). Tell them you are with the V-Strom group.

For those not familiar with the Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge; it offers private rooms, semi-private rooms, bunkhouses, cabins, RV hook ups, and tent camping sites. All sleeping areas are within 200 feet of the lodge. The lodge is equipped with a massive projection TV, dining area, game area, a theater room, tons of maps of the area, a computer, free internet, a gift shop/store, a huge back porch with rocking chairs, a fire pit, and very nice showers and restrooms. Breakfast and dinner are served on site. Everything there is FIRST CLASS!

A few other things...

Tent campers do not need to make reservations.

If you make reservations or plan to tent camp, please post in this thread for planning purposes.

The Ironhorse is in a dry county so bring your own, if you are so inclined.

Folks will arrive Thursday (14th) and Friday (15th). Most head home Sunday morning.

Most group rides will be Friday and Saturday.

All bikes are welcome.


Hope to see you there!

My apologies for the late notice on the Rally.......2015 "slipped up" on me and I should have posted it sooner. Kudos to FireFox for posting the Rally info. We had approximately 110 or so strommers "sign-up" last year with about 85 actually making it to the Rally......probably the largest turn-out yet!! Weather could have been better last year, but not the diverse groups of riders and bikes........some "farkled" to the hilt!! And Richland Rick brought his brand new 2014 Vee 1000 for everyone to drool on.......

This is "your" Rally.........it either "makes it" or "breaks it" depending on the attendance. Call Da'Horse early this week and make a reservation.....even if you must pull-out from attending later......you won't have a problem selling your room/cabin with > 75 folks attending.

Details on the 2015 Rally will be forthcoming in the next few months!!!


Over 100 Attendees at the May 2019......already planning it for 2020!!

Thanks Todd and Mark.

I am in. Reservations made.

If it's half as good as last year it will be a great gathering, though I could do without the snow this year. :mrgreen:

Me too, just talked to Charlene and got me a room. Hopefully, I'll make it this time, dumped my Glee on a wet road in Bluefield, WV last year, and bruised my knee, pretty good. Painful ride back home.
