    ok...so there are 23 attending but no one has organized it? Meeting time/place/route?

      I am not going because this date was not one that worked for me, but didn't you take over the planning? Did a survey. It is my guess that folks had an expectation to be the leader. I think the original planner has flew the coup. Just my 3 cents...hope y'all have a safe and beautiful ride!

      May 14, 2013

      Sorry I meant of you to be the leader

    Why can't we make it May 3rd-5th out? That's when the Thunder in the Smokies ride is.

    Hi all,

    The results of the date survey are in (with 11 responding). It appears the weekend of May 17-19 works for 7 of 11 respondents. Now whomever wants to go on that one can start planning/coordinating.

    I added a suggested ride for the "Thunder in the Smokies" event around the beginning of May, so if anyone is interested in attending that event and/or riding the dragons tail, the link is: http://www.meetup.com/motorcycle-109/#suggested


    1. What date would work best for you to ride the Tail of the Dragon? answered question 11 Date % of total # of responses
    May 17-19 (Fri - Sun) 36.4% 4
    May 18-19 (Sat - Sun) 27.3% 3
    May 25-26 (Sat - Sun) 9.1% 1
    May 25-27 (Sat - Mon) 0.0% 0

    Other (please specify) 27.3% 3

    * may 10-11
    * May 3-5 (Fri - Sun)
    * May 3-5 (Fri - Sun) Thunder in the Smokey's Rally

    We'd love to go. Whatever day is decided is fine, then we'll just see if we can get away from running our restaurant.

    March 27, 2013

  • Steve K.

    Hi all, There were a lot of people RSVP'd for this event, but only 9 people responded to the date survey. It appears a majority of those picked the weekend of May 17-19 (with some 18-19) so please vote! http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6FJV72K

    I suggested another event for the Thunder in the Smokies event, as suggested by Stanley Amditis below. If you are interested in that one (or both), check out the details in that event :) Comments? ideas?

    March 27, 2013

  • Steve K.

    Hello all, Since there are a number of people interested, I created a survey to get an idea of when everyone would like to take the trip. A pre-trip meeting/get-together/ride should probably be done. There are dates for 2 or 3 days. Once everyone has responded, I'll reply with the results (or link to it...not sure how surveymonkey results are done) http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6FJV72K

      FYI, I'm new to the group and group riding, so I dont want anyone to think I'm in charge of this meetup..lol

      March 25, 2013

    • Neisha

      Thanks for taking the initiative. It seemed to have died! :-)

      March 26, 2013

  • Steve Kittel changed the location to Tail of the Dragon

    This event may work for our group. Thoughts?

    March 20, 2013

    • Steve K.

      Might be another good event to go to. There are a number of interested riders, so maybe a few trips can be planned?

      March 25, 2013

  • Richard R.

    How about the weekend of May 17? Just after mothers Day and before Memorial Day.....

    March 22, 2013

  • Stanley John A.

    I'm in! I have a place to stay nearby and may be able to accomodate others.

    My ability to attend will definitely be based upon what dates are finally decided upon. But, I'd love to do the trip now that my knee surgeries are over and I should be "well" by then.

    Mother's Day weekend (May 11 - 12) is not a good weekend for me. If voting, I would vote for May 25 - 26. There are a lot of great roads in the area so it would be a good three day weekend.

    1 · March 15, 2013

    • Steve K.

      Shame on me for not knowing it was mothers day....I may have to delete the post....lol

      March 15, 2013

  • Steve K.

    I noticed a number of people are commenting for a May date. Weekend of May 10-12 or the following weekend, May 17-19. Memorial Day weekend is the weekend after that, and I assume most people will have other plans then, with cookouts and vacation, etc.

    March 15, 2013

    • Neisha

      May 10th still works for me, so hopefully we will pick soon. Calendars fill up quick!

      March 15, 2013

    • Steve K.

      Im fine with that date..we should also get a meetup date for meeting everyone somewhere for lunch and plan it out. If someone has done it before, all the better.

      March 15, 2013

  • Dan B.

    The organizer needs to pick a date, and a back up date. Then everyone can decide. Otherwise, collectively, one can say "X" weekend and everyone agree or not. Simple enough.
    I know of others that would join this. They go there each spring anyway.
    Pick a date :-)

    never been there but I am in. How do we arrange this?

    March 13, 2013

  • Dan B.

    @Tani Bradberry - stay tuned - a lot of riding gets done around here. Sometimes short notice but always a good ride. I typically do a destination ride (usually food, ok....) but back roads are great around this area. You'll love riding around here! Be safe. Watch for posts.

    March 10, 2013

    • Dan B.

      Tami Bradberry - sorry for typo

      March 10, 2013

    Any closer to dates?

    March 9, 2013

  • Tami B.

    would love to know when. Look forward to meeting some good people to ride with. New to the area.

    Like others - depends on the date, I may ride part of the way and then split up to Boone to visit my Mother and again meet up on the way back

    March 2, 2013

  • Nicki M.

    My husband and I would love to go, let us know when.

    So far..........
    Thinking around May. Leaving Friday morning from Raleigh Area. Meet friend in Winston_Salem , ride to the Tail and ride it, hang for the day. Stay over night. Leave Sat Morning and ride south on the Moonshiner 28 to Walhalla,SC. Stay the day and night. Return Sunday. Any Input is welcome

    February 18, 2013

    • Neisha

      May 10 or 24th. If we are voting :-)

      February 18, 2013

    Definitely interested in a trip to The Dragon's Tail. I have ridden it before and it and the rest of the area are beautiful.

    February 18, 2013

  • Steve K.

    I also live in Holly Springs and look forward to meeting some fellow riders.

    February 17, 2013

  • Pete O.

    Been to the Dragon Several times. If possible I find it more enjoyable to ride it on a weekday instead of the weekend. Its less crowded and crazy during the week than it is on weekends. The group I went with last time stayed at a very Motorcycle Friendly place. It is called Two Rivers Lodge. The owner even rode with us one day and lead us down a lot of local motorcycle roads.
