from past experience I can say that the rally itself is merely a gathering spot and a place to get drunk and puke. Highlander and I are using it as an excuse to ride and may check it out one day but other than that...we'll be burnig as much gas as possible.

So does that mean you want ot meet & ride with your fellow PPBBers or get drunk & puke with same. Best case scenario : do both!!

I'm not really one for organizing stuff, more of a play it by ear kinda guy, but....

The Pirate Lair Picnic may be a place for the PPBBers to meet up and go for a ride.

Here is the google map from the Biltmore. Looks to be about 25 twisty miles on 74.

US 276 southeast of Waynesville and the BRP are technical roads. There are a couple of spots to eat at along the way.

I don't totally agree with Flatbutt, however his point that many think a rally is place to drink and be outside for a change, and that this far from what I want to experience motivates me to lower any expectation of the hanging out being the point.

Weather permitting taking 3 long rides sounds good to me. 1 on Thursday, 1 on Friday, 1 on Saturday when I might just keep going and ride home Saturday night.

The vendors are usually worthwhile,

At the WestVirginia MOA national I volunteered to help Sidecar judging and that was educational and productive.

Playing mind games with Helen TwoWheels and getting a Body massage are other venues not always available.

Ride Safe, Martin G.
