    Deals Gap (June)


    I am posting this for anyone who wants to join myself, and the R1/R6 forum for their annual convention at Deals Gap in NC. The convention will be from June 16-22. My wife and I will be leaving on the morning of the
    15th and heading down. It has been going on for a few years now and is a complete blast.
    Shane McCoy(spidermanss) of McCoy Motorsports has asked all of us to post this up to as many riders as we know. Remember you don't need an R1 or R6 to come and enjoy the festivities.
    PM me or ask any questions you have.
    Thanks
    Brandon

    Re: Deals Gap (June)

    I now live a couple of hours away ... about 110 miles from the Dragon.
    As soon as I get the house settled in, will be spending a lot of time in
    that area. I will be taking a weeks vacation during the SV rally to be there.

    Also going to be doing a lot of exploring in the North Georgia area.

    If any of you want to meet when you come down, drop me a PM.

    I will be there, the amount of riding I will do will depend on the popo presence. This past year had an incredible amount of scrutiny, I am not interested in riding under those conditions.

    I will be there for the rally activities.

    Snow starting at 4500 feet with strips of rock salt on the yellow line.
    Eastern side of the mountains have lots of wet places that can freeze to black ice if it gets cold enough. In Santeetlah, the narrow section of road that goes along a brook then through countryside towards Robbinsville, there is some construction with warning signs "Loose Gravel".

    Pay heed to those signs, they dug across the road and filled in with gravel. One of these is just beyond a blind turn and if you go into it fast, you will go down if you are leaned over and going any type of speed.

    Zee was out taking pix for the first time this year.

    CROT was open for the first day this year.

    Very nice day!

    I rode to Deals Gap last week, left Thursday and got back on Monday. The weather was decent and the roads were perfect. I may be up for a trip there in June if work allows.

    Hey Erik! Glad to see you made it over here! Hopefully someone will want to head down so you can go. Once again bro I'm sorry I can't do it.

    Yeah I'm pretty psyched about it. If any of you guys will be there around the same time hopefully we could meet up. I will be there around the time of the aforementioned SV rally, it looks like... I'll be meeting up with some riders I know down there.

    Awesome! I'll be meeting some riders I know down there. Let's keep in touch closer to the dates and meet up for some riding or at least some food and drinks once we're there

    This trip is going to be ridiculous. I'm getting psyched already.

    A twenty-one year old kid from Maryland died by mile marker 3 yesterday.
    He was riding a 2008 'Busa.

    Ok to get excited, but be careful.
