Any Eastern Annual Rides like out west??

there are a couple of us that live in New Brunswick Canada and wondered if there are any eastern rides in maine area or boston etc.

or should we get one going?

do we have enough RC owners to make it work?

I'd be interested if there are people to do it. Could get other riders, albeit, non RC. I've only seen 1 other RC here in the So. NH area, aside from myself.

eastern rides

I'm looking for those of us who ride the blue ridge mountains (i.e. NC, TN, SC, GA). Lots of curvy roads there.

I help organize a Spring Get Together with my Honda V4 (1st gen Sabre, Magna and Interceptor) buds. This year's has come and gone but I also try to do a mini-meet in August. We meet at the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground which is about 15 miles east of Waynesville NC on highway 276, southwest of Asheville. There haven't been any dates set for August yet but there will be before too long. We usually get anywhere from 20-40 attendees at the SGT and lately it's become "V4s and everything else under the sun". This year we had 2 RCs (one of them mine), several VFRs, 2 Connies, a Triumph, a Ninja 1000, a V Max and even a couple of old V4s!

The mini meet is VEERY mini in that most of the guys can't do 2 meets on one year or have other commitments so some more peeps at that one would be awesome. I would definitely like to meet some more RC peeps but we seem very spread out geographically. Anyway if anyone here has any interest in joining us in August, let me know.

Blue Ridge riding

Yeh, Cruzo, I've been there. There's another I just camped/rode out of this spring called Snake Farm (165 Mountain View Ln., Elk Park, NC. 28622-9124) near Boone NC. In reach of a lot of curvy roads and I know a local who knows them all and he's fast.

Let me know, I have a riding buddy with a Multistrata and plenty of fast GS guys.

I am also in NH (seacoast area) and I have a good amount of time and desire to ride. Wanted to meet fellow RC riders in the area or not. I'm not afraid to ride quite a ways.

I'd be very interested in trying to work together to get a meet going.
What do you guys think?

Well, let's start with a location. I'm in NC, kind of west central. There are tons of cool roads a short distance north of me and more as you get closer to Asheville. There are several places where we could potentially meet in that area.

Further west is my absolute favorite road, The Cherahala Skyway which is a stone's throw from the Dragon. Personally, I avoid the Dragon since it's become too much of a mecca for an unholy mix of vehicles but I will admit that everyone should try to run it at least once (preferably on a weekday and early enough that the masses have yet to arrive). One of my favorite "home bases" for riding in this area is Tellico Plains, TN. Very motorcycle oriented and tons of fun roads in all directions.

Any other suggestions for a meet place?
