Tail of the Dragon, Blue Ridge Parkway Trip 2017
OP: October 17, 2016, 11:24:21 AM
All

I am planning a riding trip for the Blue Ridge Parkway area again next year in May. It will be the same week that the V4 Form members have their Spring Get Together. I will be headquartered in Maggie Valley NC.

This is a 9 day trip with 5 days of riding in the Great Smokey Mountains area of the Blue Ridge Parkway (includes The Dragon of course).

I have done this trip several times in recent years and it is worth every second and dollar spent.

I will be posting further details as this develops.

The date I'm looking at for this trip is Saturday May 13th to Sunday the 21st. This coincides with the Honda V4 Forum Spring Get Together in Maggie Valley, NC.

Let know if you are seriously interested in this trip. I will need to move on some lodging logistics soon.

I'm definitely going.  Let me know if you need any assistance with the planning / logistics.

I forgot where we stopped off after our first day out.  Was it Meridian, MS?

I heard that John.

I have the group locked in Maggie Valley for May 21 through May 27. It will be a great week of mountain adventure riding.

I hope some more Magna owners will make this event.

This could be our MOOTMaG 2017

Dave, you sure it's not the week before that?  The SGT for the Honda V4 forum is the weekend of May 17-21, 2017, I planned on coming down the week prior, like May 14th or 15th.  I hope that was just a typo on your part, because I've already requested that entire week off!

As much as I would like to go on this trip. I'm 98% sure that I am out. My money (and my time) are going to a wedding this July and a house remodel.

I will try to plan something in Texas perhaps in the fall of 2018 for a MOOTMAG and maybe we can plan New Mexico for MOOTMaG 2018?

It's still on!

I secured the two chalets in Maggie Valley and have filled them up with DRNT members. Remember that this is the same week as the Honda V4 Spring Get Together so there will be other Honda people there.

No MOOTMaG this year, so, anyone here still wanting to make this in May???

I have one member who has to back out of this event so I have one queen size bed available at the chalet. Cost is $ 214.00 for the whole week.

I am looking for a taker for this North Carolina trip.
