Doing it at Ben's place has been mentioned. He's on a hill too as it happens. My place is also an option but it seems to be too far away for most.
This probably should have it's own thread I reckon...

Awwwwwww.....there's plenty of time for another thread....we're just talking and those TSMR people will understand wink

It seems like the event's date fell on or around one of the other events I attended but I don't remember. I'll keep an eye out for any word on if it'll happen and like I said...I've wanted to attend that one for a long time....so I'll do my best to try and be there.

Not sure what I'll be riding this year.....the B44 needs a freshen up but the engine bits are still at the shop. Not sure if the B50 is up to a long ride and it's not set up to haul all the junk I drag along.....but one way or another I need to get some two wheel time in.

Take care......Pokey

Richrd.....weren't you the one who taught me that NEBRASKA is just one BIG flat topped hill????? laughing

You know.....that is something to think about. Instead of (or along with) an event that happens in the same place each year...an event that moves around the country. I'd LOVE to see where Mike G's from......Richrd too. If you think about it we could pretty much cover North to South the whole East coast. Starting at the Carter's Brothers to Mike G's. Then cross the Mississippi to Richrds backyard one year. It's already sorta been done with gettogethers at Tim's, Lannis', Mr Ben's and Wade's.

A mind should never rest.....Pokey

Sounds like a plan to me...as long as I don't have to plan it.

No...mind! Mind! Wonderful idea. I was actually thinking of suggesting it. Moving the event around, that is. I'm like Tim in that respect. Not having a plan I mean. I want somebody else to plan the where and the when. If we have it here at my place I would have to do a little planning but I can live with that. Just need to get some people to agree to do it. Could just post my address and a date and see who shows up I guess. Is anybody else reading this?

Well it is only two weeks until the 15th British Invasion at the Blowing Rock Inn help

Hopefully Mother Nature will have all the rain out of her system by then and it will be nothing but a beautiful weekend for us!

We do still have rooms available, you will have to call because I have blocked them out on the internet so only you special "biker" people can stay with us.

And just FYI, I making sure all of the local cats are being kept at home that weekend! That poor cat - I just want to call the local animal shelter to go save him.

Ray and I are counting the days!

P.S.
Sorry about the crazy email you may have received from me, someone hacked my business email account!

Rest assured that no cats have been harmed, befuddled, or otherwise alarmed in the production of any any recent photographs, stories, or tall tales.

The Shop Cat at Baxter's, for example, is a very self-possessed, independent cat who will go along with a joke but did NOT give me the impression that he would take any nonsense from anyone, especially someone that he could whip with one paw tied behind his flank ....

Back at the 10th TSMR and the ride to Henry's emporium at Kingsport TN, I was very uncertain about Henry's watchcat.
That cat had a look in his eye!

Henrys cat was a "Doberman" of a watchcat. I once put my face up against the store glass at night afterhours for a peep at the brit bikes and that cat leaped at my face, rebounded off the glass and scared the heck outta me.

OK guys and gals I went for a pre route ride and here is what I found. the first section of the park way is in good shape, 221 off the mountain is having some patch work done BUT could use a repave on a lot of it but is still OK. The goat path is in great shape from the work that was done 2 years ago. the NC side of 321 is OK but is getting worse and the TN side is in great shape. 421 has taking another beating this winter so watch out for some bad places, not as bad on the way over but worse coming back to mountain city. the lunch stop is taking care of along talking to the other gas stops. 58 is in OK shape but you will still need to watch out for gravel in some places, same as always there. now to the love it hate it parkway, 20 miles south there is a detour off of it and back on at 421 (deep gap) it is VERY well marked so there SHOULD be no trouble and on a side note for the directionally challenged where we first get on at laurel springs it has a large detour sign IF you turn NORTH. remember the parkway is ALWAYS SOUTH. another warning do not speed on the parkway, it is federal park land so has its own rules and they hit you hard. in chatting to our inn keeper it is also a mandatory appearance in asheville so NO just mailing in a fine. last but not least there will be NO shuttle to supper friday night, the exon beer store is closed so it is a drive to food lion. the southern comfort has mixed revues but there a few other places to get some breakfast within walking distance and the saturday night BB Q is still on. see yall on the 15th.

That's the way it was for the first 4 years or so while they were building that stone bridge over 421 ... I'm surprised to hear that they're at it again, that bridge looked like it would last forever .... !

The "walk to breakfast" is an old tradition; the Waffle House in Boone is OK but it's just not the same, so we'll make sure we know where the breakfast places in Blowing Rock are, and we'll give them a shot .... !
