Deal's Gap over Memorial Day weekend...

Me, my girlfriend and another couple who both ride are hitting Deal's Gap this weekend.

Who else is going? We should all get together at the end of the day and have a beer or three.

I will be hitting the gap early in the morn, it will be too crowded and too much bacon for my taste!

I was there last year for Mem Wkend around 2pm - It took me like 20 mins to get through - what a waste!!

It'll be so congested that you won't be able to break the sound barrier anyway. It's the end of our journey...just going to hang out with people who "get it".

We should be arriving Sunday, May 27th, in the afternoon or evening. We'll start riding on Monday. We probably won't hit the dragon's tail till Tuesday though. Too crowded. We'll be there for a week, so I'll be okay waiting a few days until we hit the dragon's tail and cherohala.

Have fun and be safe

This is from the Tail of the Dragon web site (http://www.tailofthedragon.com/index.html)

WARNING MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND - There will be increased enforcement on area roads for the holiday weekend. North Carolina will have extra Sheriff and Highway Patrol units on all roads, especially along US 129 where the rafting is taking place. We highly recommend that you reduce speeds in this area to avoid any problems with slower traffic or bystanders watching the rafting. For those of you who haven't seen the kayakers and rafters it is quite a show. SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY THE WEEKEND

Don't be afraid that your life will end,
be afraid that it will never begin.

Where are you staying? We'll be on the north side of Robbinsville off of Old Hwy 129. And I won't be pushing it too hard. I just graduated from a 636 so I'm still getting the feel of it.

My girlfriend is new to sportbikes so we won't be riding hard either...not to mention that I really like my bike and would hate to have to turn it over to the LEOs up there...AND the fact that not only will there be a lot of bikes up there but a lot of squids as well. We're staying at the Two Wheel Inn http://www.twowheelinn.com/ , how 'bout you?
