Rally Report: 56 registered 8 canceled 44 showed up 38-40 bikes A terrific time, despite a little rain Thursday and Friday. However, Saturday and Sunday were spectacular. Most all planned rides went on schedule (see details on website). Only one (the longest one) got caught in some rain Sunday evening. Numerous forum members attended, but I didn't get all member screen names listed. Some I did identify were: @Eeyore @Suzy @Jethro @Big Dawg @Gronk @OL'55 @ChaCha A few attendees were baptized with road names: Deer Slayer Pocahontas (Elizabeth Warren look alike) Bridget "Bardot" Rogue Vogue Friday (real name: Jack Webb) Thursday was cloudy, a little rain after dark. Friday was rain - off and on. Saturday was beautifully sunny. Three different runs took folks on the Tail of the Dragon, Smokey Mt. Park and the Best of the Blue Ridge. That night we feasted on BBQ and Ribs, along with various potato salad, cole slaw, other extras and iced tea. The dinner was topped off with Peach and Apple Cobbler (all included in registration fee). The food was awesome! Later we had another joyous campire ring. On Sunday, the Summer Solstice, @Woodmantim lead a 210 mile round trip run up the Blue Ridge Parkway to the highest mountain east of the Mississippi (Mt. Mitchell). There we performed a sacred Native American Smudging Ceremony on the bikes and riders. Four full days of of the best motorcycle roads in the world, sumptuous meals, and the greatest friendships (new and old) were too short. Plans are already under way for next year!
