    Lindy it looks like three bikes. We will meet up with you for lunch. Coy will lead you up.

  • Mac M.

    Exactly how many of us are riding up Saturday? I know some who signed up are actually riding up Friday. Just curious. Can't wait. Looking forward to riding the Dragon. I don't know if I can stand having this much fun!!!!

    May 13, 2013

  • Gary C.

    Depends upon how you intend to come up. If you go on the highway all the way then, you will probably be at the hotel by 12:00 to 1 PM. You all could unload and we could go to lunch. There are several OK places for lunch in Bryson City.
    If you take Glens suggested route ( http://goo.gl/maps/5Kf2d) the group could meet you in Franklin, NC. There is a very good place in Franklin called Caff’e Rel (http://plus.google.com/117185222163223168034/about?gl=us&hl=en).
    The hotel is only about 45 minutes to the Dragon. The food at the Dragon resort is OK. Best,

    How about we meet at the Dragontail at 1PM Saturday Hwy 28 and 129 from there we can ride the Dragon and continue around the parkway down 441 (Beautiful road) to Cherokee and on to Bryson City.
    Just a suggestion

  • Jimmy B.

    This is a one night ride. There is also a two night ride on another signup. I would like to get a count of people going on this trip or the two nighter. If you want to head up Saturday that is fine, but someone will have to lead the ride, because Me, Glen Lou and Gary are going up Friday morning. We will need assign a leader for this ride up. If you can volunteer, please let me know that too.

    There is a Waffle House across the street from the Sportsman Warehouse if that is OK.

    LAST CALL:  Scoop and I (DOC) will be staying at Gracey Manor in Bryson City, NC ((828)[masked]). We will be going up Friday (17th May 2013) and coming back Sunday (19th May 2013). They have several rooms left ( Kings, Queens & Doubles ).  They are holding these rooms under SCRC/ DOC. These rooms will be released one week before we go up to the mountains.  You do have to call ((828)[masked]) and make your own reservations. Best,

    We made our reservations. So excited. Our first overnighter! Gracey Manor had a few rooms left.

    April 26, 2013

  • Louie

    Since I am going on the two day trip, I changed my RSVP on this one.

    April 20, 2013

  • Gary C.

    For those going up on Friday, May 17th 2013, Gracey Manor still has 3 King singles, 1 Queen Single and 1 room with 2 Beds available. Please call and make your own reservations. The rooms will have to be released 1 week before the group goes up. Best,

    Going to do the 2 night stay

    April 16, 2013

  • Louie

    If anyone needs to work and wants to head up with me Friday, just post it here. I live in Chapin and doubt that I will get out before 6. I have a friend coming from Charleston and he can't leave there until 4. Night riding for sure.

    April 4, 2013

  • Jimmy B.

    Can we please get a count of people who want to stay for one night only or two nights. I want to go for two nights so I can relax and enjoy the first ride of the session. Glen said he didn't care and could lead riders up Saturday morning if anyone else wants to go for one night.
    Louie said he is coming up late Friday.
    And we have decided to stay in Bryson City NC. The SleepInn has some doubles left and I am going to scrafe one up for me and Glen.
    I think Doc and Larry is coming up Friday after 10AM from Sumter and staying for two nights.
    Make reservations now please, in Bryson City NC as mentioned below.

    April 4, 2013

  • Louie

    I hope to bring a guest so I am waiting to make reservations. We will probably get in early Friday evening. I will let you know where I am staying.

    April 2, 2013

  • Gary C.

    Gracey Manor is nice, quiet and centrally located. I really think your group will like the place and the price. Best,

    DOC

    April 1, 2013

  • Jimmy B.

    If it is OK with everyone, lets stay in Bryson as Doc stated below. Any objections or conflicts? How are the rooms at Gracey Manor Doc?

    April 1, 2013

  • Louie

    Everyone signed up for this trip needs to look at the other one so that you don't miss out on the discussion.

    March 31, 2013

  • Gary C.

    If the Gracey Manor is booked up you can still stay in the Bryson City area. You can call the Relax Inn ([masked])/ http://www.brysoncitymotel.com that is downtown, the Microtel Inn & Suites ( (828)[masked] )/ http://www.microtelinn.com/hotels/north-carolina/bryson-city/microtel-inn-and-suites-bryson-city/hotel-overview?reg=Local-_-all-_-MIC-_-all&cid=IP_Local&wid=local or the Sleep Inn (828)[masked]/ http://www.sleepinnbrysoncitync.com .

    March 31, 2013

  • Gary C.

    I guess no one called Mike at the Skyline? He is completely booked up on the 17th & 18th of May 2013. Best,

    DOC

    March 30, 2013

    • Louie

      Let's make reservations at Gracey Manor for the 17th and 18th. Are you in?

      March 31, 2013

    • Gary C.

      Already Booked! Plan to go up Friday (17th May 2013) arround 1200. Best,

      March 31, 2013

  • Gary C.

    I am not trying to change this ride but, the Skyline Tavern is completely booked up on the weekend of the 18th of May. Since, I have already taken off from work Scoop and I (DOC) will be staying at Gracey Manor in Bryson City, NC ((828)[masked]). We will be going up Friday afternoon(17th May 2013) and coming back Sunday (19th May 2013). They have only single rooms left ( 2 kings & 2 Queens ). They are holding these rooms under SCRC48/ DOC.

    Little Switzerland NC. Louie, what is that number again to the Skyline Inn?. Two nights if anyone wants to, but officially just one.

    March 28, 2013

    • Louie

      The number is[masked]-9394. Doc already called and they are booked. We waited to long to decide on a location.

      March 31, 2013

  • Jimmy B.

    What would you all say to spending one night in Helen Ga. and the second near Cherokee or Boone NC? Just looking for some ideas.

    March 25, 2013

    • Louie

      If we are heading up Saturday are you planning to head back Monday? Friday - Sunday would be better for me but I won't miss the trip either way.

      March 26, 2013

  • Gary C.

    Riders,

    Just got off the phone with Gracey Manor [masked] in Bryson City. They are completely open on the 17th to the 19th of May. Rooms are $65 to $64/ night. If I may suggest this local for the trip. Gracey Manor is a quiet, clean and centrally located location to ride the mountains. There are some good places to eat located close to the hotel (walking distance). Best,

    DOC

    March 26, 2013

    • Louie

      That sounds good to me.

      March 26, 2013

  • Gary C.

    I would suggest doing the Gap area that early in the riding season. There will probably be less traffic/ tourist. Bryson City is a great centrally located place to depart. I have been calling Gracey Manor but, I guess they are not open yet. Or, the Phillips Inn in Robinsville is another great place. Just some suggestions. Best,

    DOC

    March 25, 2013

  • Louie

    I will either go up Friday or stay through Monday. Still no location?

    March 19, 2013

  • Marti

    This looks interesting...I am going to check my schedule. I already have a trip planned for Memorial Weekend.

    March 18, 2013

    March 12, 2013

  • Larry D.

    Do you know where we are staying?

    March 4, 2013

    • Jimmy B.

      For right now, we want to give people the opportunity to save up some rabbit hole money. Will decide where to go a little latter.

      March 4, 2013

    • Louie

      Let's not wait too long. Some places fill up fast.

      March 7, 2013

  • Gary C.

    Its on my schedule. Where are we staying???

    February 17, 2013

    • Louie

      Glad to see you are back on two wheels.

      February 23, 2013

  • Louie

    You know I love the twisties. Has a location been decided? How about the Cherohala Skyway?

    February 17, 2013

  • Jimmy B.

    Hope it not the later Bill so lets just hope you will be at home recouping from getting everything back together.

    We'll see you next time, I do hope.
