    I think a ride through Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge as a group would be a lot of fun. If we did a night ride I'd have to get a bit more motivated and get my LED's put on! I need 36 hr days!

    I was thinking maybe we could bring some groceries and do a cook what ya brung for Saturday night. The guys that are riding in would not be expected to bring stuff. I think the guys that are driving could cover the food. I would definately contribute to the groceries. What do you think?
    A cookout of sorts would be a great way to hang out. I'll try to call the place in Townsend tomorrow and see what's still available and ask about trailer parking as well. This week has been 24/7 busy. Today was a ride on the 9 to work, riding home in a downpour, changing out of my soaked clothes and getting to town for my daughters first Vball game of the season and then getting over to pick my youngest son up at football practice. Not liking a 9pm dinner too much. On a side not his first game is Saturday and that boy is showing some talent as a receiver. Can't wait for the game!

    I"ll hopefully have a thread update tomorrow.

    Original post updated as well.

    *** 08/24/12 Update ***

    - Demetri has booked a cabin.
    - Jed and I have booked at the motel.


    I just called Dock's and here is a current update of availability and some info I was able to collect. This sounds like a pretty nice place and it's by the Little River.

    Motel Rooms - 2 at $55 per night
    1 with 2 double beds
    1 with a queen bed

    River Cabins - 2 at $85 per night
    1 king bed per cabin

    Cabins by the pool - 3 at $85 per night
    1 with 2 queen beds
    2 with 3 double beds

    - Paved road entrance (some gravel parking)
    - Pavilion, picnic tables, and charcoal grills
    - Motorcycle offloading ramp (for pickups)
    - Cabins and motel are all right there in the same area.


    Trailers - she stated that the cabins have a parking area and also stated that the large cabin (which I think Demetri reserved) has a large parking lot. So I don't think there will be a problem. The only concern she had is that there is another biker group staying at the same time that will have some trailers. But my impression was that if we work together we can fit them in. Anyone that is concerned should call them for more info.

    Looks like we are up to about 12 people so far. I'm betting we'll have some more jump on board.

    Welcome aboard Halo9 and slvr9r. Looking like we may have 9rs from TN, KY, GA, NC and now Long Island, NY. Love it.

    Thread updated. If everyone's still on board, it looks like about 14 of us so far and maybe some "true" NY Cheesecake as well!! Can't wait. Rooms/Cabins are going fast, so if anyone is looking to book one, you may want to make the call. There's another bike group staying there as well so that should be interesting

    We actually have some leaves already starting to turn and fall believe it or not. Had quite a few in the yard when I mowed yesterday. We should have some really nice fall colors to ride in if they all turn a little early.

    I guess that will be beautiful and dangerous with aall those leaves on the road. A little LESS traction on those curves.
    Should be fun.

    Hello Everyone. I see quite a few people here that were at the. May 2011 meet and greet in GA.

    If this is open to ALL riders I am interested. No hard feelings if you are keeping it 9er exclusive .

    Also, anyone interested I am trying to get a long day ride together on Sat, Sep 8. Thinking about a loop from Marietta GA to Telico/Cherohala to Tail of the Dragon to Robbinsville then back down 19/129 to GA 400 towards ATL. Route is still wide open.

    Ride safe and hope to be riding with you'all again soon.

    Man I really wish I could get away again and ride with you guys. I was just up in the Boone area this past saturday. Plan on going to Boone again Sept. 22 as my daughter is going to an open house at App. State. I am trying to convince her to either go to App. State, or UNC Asheville. That would give me a good excuse to be in the mountains quite often.
    Might possibly take the roush up to grandfathers mountain with the wife for a labor day get away. Figure everyone will be headed to the beach for one last summer get away, so I will go in the opposite direction. Once the beach prices come down after labor day, I will head to the beach again.
    Have fun guys.

    This is open to any and all bikers my friend. While it will be mostly 9's, I think there may be 4 or more other bikes already coming. If you want to get on board, you should go ahead and call to get a cabin. Not too many left.

    The motel is full from what I hear. One of my guys got the last room yesterday and that was after a cancellation from the other group that is going to be there. I will try and look around later for something else that's close so there will be an alternative for anybody else that wants to get in on this trip.

    I didn't get in till late last night but looked around a little Dogwood Cabins is not too far from Docks Motel but they have availability according to their website. 3 day min since 10/1-11/1 is peak leaf season. Rates seemed reasonable though. Don't know how bike friendly they are.
