I am thinking about doing a Wed - Fri trip to the Deals Gap area in about 3 weeks.  Anyone interested in joining me?

That's Fathers Day weekend, so that wouldn't work for me.  ???

Wish I could go, but no vacation until fall.  Last year I stayed at Two Wheel Inn, just south of the Dragon.  Each room had it's own garage.  Nice folks running the place.  I'll be making that a yearly trek and stay overnight there.  First time I rode from south of atlanta up there, rode it twice, then back home.  490 miles on a 2001 ZR7s.  Looking forward to making my first run on my recently aquired 2011 connie.

+1 on the Two Wheel Inn.  The beds weren't the best, but everything was clean and the people were great.  We sat outside and talked to 3 guys from MI until about 11pm.  The guys across from us were grilling and having a great time as well.  Very friendly atmosphere.

Hot? Yes!!! May be too warm to spin the wheels, so feel free to PM me via the Forum.  Check out the SE calendar - there are three RTE's in July, two of which are 'close enuff' to those of us north of the gnat line.  'Course, if'n you want to do a SaddleSore the third might work... :))

Hi Tom,
I can only see one RTE on the calendar. The one I posted under SE events for Flowriduh is not on there, what else is going on?

PS. Those Black and Tan Yuenglings where yummy, thanks again. :beerchug: :beerchug:

Steve,
The calendar now shows one gathering at the NC Zoo (wonder how we'll be able to tell who's a resident and who's not?!?) and another at the metropolis of Uvilla, GA to see the site (no plural, here!).  Then, there's the gathering youse guys are putting together in the way south.  All three may not be RTE (though I hear fried ostrich is pretty tasty).  For the month of July, that's a pretty good selection.

Glad you liked the selection of beverage. Black&Tans are getting to be a favorite of mine.

Agreed on the July thing. It might get a little hot out, but it's only sweat, right?

Have fun with what yer doin up there, that steak thing sounds real good, just a bit of a stretch in the heat for me.
