I ordered the America Rides Maps several years ago. A very good set of maps. I use them whenever I Ride in that part of the country. :D

Looking forward to seeing you all in September. Confirmed my reservations this evening. Good deal on the room, Thanks Brian.

I have stayed there several times and it has always been good. They cater to motorcyclists.

Now if we can get some warm weather to get these bike wheels turning without having to dress like the Michelin Man to ride!

You have to come! You will not be disappointed... after attending a gathering, it will be an annual event.

Maverick,
There is sufficient room at the motel to park the RV and trailer. No need to find a RV park unless you want to.

I will call them to expand the block. But don't wait! Rooms go very fast in the UP during the summer.
If you need a roomie, post a note here.

That depends on whether you plan on staying in a room or in the RV. Give them a call and ask. They may even have a RV hookup.

I got an email from the local GWRRA chapter in Maggie Valley, and he wanted to let me know that their "Wings Over the Smokies" event is happening just after our Gathering, for anyone who might be interested in staying in the area:

Greetings all:
We are excited about attending the 3rd annual Goldwing gathering. This will be our first! Where do we register? We have made our hotel reservations but I did not see a link to registration information. Please let me know how to get registered. PS we drive a restored '95 Goldwing Aspencade 1500-Trike conversion. It is the anniversary year model. Hope to get our photo on this forum soon.
Best regards,
Musicians Trike

Welcome to the forum!
Registration is not required. Show up, and you're done. This is a VERY informal gathering. Usually the first ones there will hang out in the lobby, or near their bikes, so, just introduce yourself. Except for the daily trips, everything is played by ear. Nothing formal, we're just a group of people with one similar interest, our bikes!

Be prepared, I think there is an 11% tax on rooms in NC also. Brings the total up to about $100/night but split between two buddies it's still very doable for about $50/night each.
