I thought maybe that some of us could meet at Fancy Gap Virginia and ride the BRP down to Boone, then go to the campground. Perhaps the guys coming from the south could meet at Ashville and ride up the parkway to Boone. What do you think? Dew.
Would riding The Dragon at Deals Gap be in your plans?Terry

I do know of a road called "The Snake" on Rt 421 which is as good or better than the Dragon. Just as many curves, better road surface, less cops, and less traffic. It ends at Shady Valley where a gas station/country store is located. They have food, gas, t-shirts, etc. Try looking up Shady Valley on youtube to get a better look......Dew.
Dew,There seems to be some pretty good interest here. When you have more details etched out, drop a note to Dorothy (our very own humble scribe) and maybe we can mention it and give some sign-up information in our community newsletter. That reaches several thousand people these days and helps us promote many of our own rides and events.
I did a Blue Ridge trip last week on my Bonneville. I camped at Rider's Roost (http://www.ridersroost.com/index2.html) in Fergusen, NC (near North Wilkesboro), then the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground (http://www.blueridgemotorcyclecamp.com/), Cruso, NC, then Iron Horse Lodge (http://www.ironhorsenc.com/) near Deal's Gap and last night at Two Wheels Only (http://www.twowheelsonly.com/) in Suches, Georgia.All the these places cater specifically to motorcycles and offer cabins and tent camping.I also stopped for a visit at the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley (http://www.wheelsthroughtime.com/), which I highly recommend.This made for a round trip of about 850 miles (with a few side trips) from my house in Northeast Georgia.These are just some suggestions. If I can get out of work I'm game for anywhere along the Blue Ridge.Andy
