SE RC get together

I wanted to see who was interested in a South East RC get together somewhere in the GA/SC/NC/FL area. Please give input and ideas. There is nothing more awesome than a bunch of RC's thundering down the road.

Thanks,

Ricky Bobby

What ever date we all can agree apon. This is something we can all put together and not just me. Maybe this can become a yearly thing.

I havent been out there but from what I've heard and read theres a lot of nice roads, besides the Tail, in Western NC. The roads east of The Pisgah National Forest, Hwy 80, Hwy 226, Blue Ridge Hwy...
I'm trying to work out a date with the riders I know out here in Eastern NC to head out that way.

I heard little switzerland was better than the tail. Maybe this could turn out to be a camping trip. I am definatley gonna trailer up there cuz my lame A$$ can't go more than 150 mi on the bike. We could all bring coolers and grill and make a great weekend out of it. So with more people that chime in the easier it gets to narrow down the location.

So for right now we are looking at W NC around Ashville Hickory area. I know I have Labor day weekend booked and Indy the week before that so maybe mid Sept or early Aug so we can get some solid planning done.

I'd be turcking/trailering mine too. Little Switzerland is like a 6+hr haul for me. Aug/Sept works for me, as long as we get a place and date set a month or 2 ahead of time.

My vote is for Little Switzerland date flexable

Jealous from the West Coast.....

Take a ton of pictures if you guys get this ride together!! It would be sick to go out for a ride with a group of RC's. I have yet to see one RC in my area...almost ever to be honest...

Have fun, ride safe

I grew up on the in SoCal and there are some great spots to ride away from the traffic. Out here it is on a whole different level. I checked on shipping a bike to the West Coast for a trip and it was $765 one way. I really wanna do a track day at Willow Springs. Thanks for the chime in and there will be tons of pics.

Whats the vote on having other bikes if we get this figured out and do it? I know a couple other people that might be down for this trip. I know no stunters.

What is everyone thinking for lodging? Camp? motel/hotel? Personally I'm for a motel/hotel. I'm looking to ride some nice roads and get to know my fellow 51'ers. Not fight bugs and bears for my lunch. Camping it a trip on its own.
Heres a link to some of the accomodations in Little Switzerlandhttp://www.littleswitzerlandnc.com/m...=Accomodations Im liking the sound of the Diamondback Lodge.

I have been working out a trip like this for some time now to do with just a few guys I know in the area. What I was thinking for me and the guys I ride/drive out there with is; take off after work on a friday; ride most of that saturday and some of sunday morning; load up and head home just before/about lunch time. Just never put the added effort to work out the small stuff.

Ryan, that sounds good. Im going to talk to my neighbor the possible tirp and this forum. He also has a '03. Do you know if MCCS has a 3 up trailer? 3, '03s...now thats a picture we got to take
