I'll be camping if I can some, hopefully I can nab a good spot before they are all gone by the time I arrive?

Finding a spot for a tent has never been a problem. There are some "fancy" tent spaces across the creek with 110v power and gravel bases. I prefer being next to the Lodge ( bathroom ) and that area over there always has plenty of room too.

Got my bunk house spot again 2 weeks ago. Same cabin, should be fun. I'm trying to convince a coworker to come with his wife. They're great people and fun to ride with. I think they would enjoy the atmosphere.

Personally, I would like to do the slow speed race again. I thought it was fun even though my balance game is weak. I'd sign up for sure.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing you goobers again. I'm riding down from east TN on Thursday afternoon, I think, should anyone wanna ride down together.

Rides:
2008 V-Strom 1000
2006 Kawasaki Nomad 1600 (w/ sidecar for the boy)

Reservations made! Just not at the lodge.....I have some other obligations I have to tend to and having access to internet full time is a must have. So I am staying at the Microtel Inn in Bryson City again!

I will plan to put on a clutch seminar again, maybe a bit more involved if I can talk my Son into carrying part of the stuff to do it!

Brian, keep me posted, if you go I will meet you there, without a Strom of course, but I'm sure the beast would fit right in.

Dave, no worries. Probably a quarter of the bikes there won't be V Stroms. I'll probably be on the RT, my Son on the S10.

That tells me it is what a meet up is all about. Getting together with friends!

That's why I'm still on the forum after two years with no Strom, there are a great bunch of folks here that make it well worth staying. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the meetup.

I'd like to ride down this year but, kinda early now. As I get older the trailer seems more sensible. WTH?

Going to try and make it.

Want to make two wheels of suches and stay there a night too. Ride around the area. Get back to Barber for some sort of event would be fun.

Looks like around 100 miles away, if some people want to make a day ride out of it.

2005 Suzuki SV1000R 80K miles, 2012 Suzuki DL650AL2, over 40k miles already!
