V-Strom Get-Together East VII (2009)

When: 14-17 May, 2009

Where: Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge, Stecoah. NC

GPS Coordinates: N35 23.358 W83 40.665

They are holding all rooms & cabins for us until the end of February, so make your own reservations ASAP. Tell them your with the VStrom group.

Their web site: http://www.ironhorsenc.com/



I'll try and answer a few common questions:

1. Folks will be arriving mostly on Thursday (14th) & Friday (15th). Most will depart Sunday morning.

2. If camping, no reservations are required. I would ask that you post your intentions in this thread so we can get a fair count for meals.

3. Wifes, girlfriends & kids welcome. Although there isn't a lot for them to do if not riding.

4. All bikes are welcome, even Harley's.

5. Most group rides will be on Friday & Saturday. GPS routes will be posted down the road a peice. Some route maps will be available at the lodge.

6. Breakfast & Dinners are served at Ironhorse (good stuff). Lunch your on your own unless prior arrangements are made.

7. Dry county, so bring your own if so inclined. Ice & coolers available for a small fee. Closest available is Bryson City, about 17 miles.

8. Coffee is available around 7AM. Iced Tea & coffee in the evenings after dinner.

9. Kickstands up around 9AM for Friday & Saturday rides.

10. There are other motels & campgrounds in the area if you procrastinate too long.

11. I am not planing any tech sessions, must ride, not work. I will have my Yosh Box with for evening tuning sessions on Thu - Sat.

12. Garry promises no rain this year.

Hope to see you all there.

Here are some other accommodations in the area of Ironhorse.

6.2 miles - Tuskeegee Motel
8.6 miles - Freeman's Motel
11.2 miles - Nantahala Village

I want to make it badly. I will try to sort out the time off when it gets closer. No V-Strom anymore, but I've been wanting to try out my Dyna on a trip like this.

I bought a 2005 Dyna Super Glide Custom. It's a really nice ride, never thought I'd enjoy the HD thing, but it's really a fun bike. Hope to see you there too Norm. Really a fun time this trip, I recommend it to anyone. That Ironhorse is a real quality establishment.

Come on Dan...a Harley? I thought you gave up on bikes that break down. Hope to see you down there. I think I'll have Dirt Mom with me. She's been averaging over 1000 miles a month on the bike so this should be no problem.

I attended a BMW event at the Ironhorse, great place! I didn't stay there, I stayed at the Two Wheel Inn, also a nice place if the Ironhorse files up. Just checked my schedule & I'll be at work so I'll miss it.
