  • 2018 Smokies meet

    When: September 12th till the 16th
    Where: http://lloydsontheriver.com
    Once we figure out where we will be staying I'll update.
    Also make sure your bike is in tip top running condition, check your brakes and if it's been a while change your fluid, change your oil, make sure in heat you don't get carb puke, make sure your tires have more than enough tread to last during the meet and to get you home. DO NOT TRY AND RIDE ABOVE YOUR SKILL LEVEL, WE WILL WAIT ON SLOWER RIDERS BEFORE WE MAKE A TURN TO ANOTHER ROAD.

    Good tires

    I can’t believe I was that guy last year. After all the times I’ve been there, track riding, etc. Unreal how fast that last bit of tread disappears. Might throw on another brand new rear right before the trip this year. That’s what I usually do anyway.

    Right now I have mountains of snow on either side of my shop. It’s officially that time of year where I want it to warm up

      Heck I'd like to have snow. It's warmed up here but it's raining everyday.

    Just took a little ride. Cold but good to get out.

    Any ideas on another place to stay? Or we just gonna do Lloyd’s again?

    Anyone want to meet somewhere else for the first day like we were going to do last year (until the hurricane screwed us)?

      I like the idea of a cabin. And where would we go the first day?

            Yeah. Last year we had reservations at the Best Western in Blairsville, GA if I remember correctly. Canceled last minute because of the hurricane.

              Sounds good to me. Want me to holler at Grant and see what he says?

                Sure. Just got my days off work for this shindig so I’m in. Rumor has it a certain Air Force serviceman might make an appearance this year

                  If not we should go to him lol.
                  I wonder why Grant hasn't joined here, I haven't seen anything from him in a long time.

                    Update. Getting ready to book stuff. Talking to Grant lately. Who is planning on being here? Anyone?

                    Looks like Grant, Gus, Preston, possibly Jake, and myself right now.

                      Also, life is a lot different for me this year. Was just thinking Lloyd’s again because it’s easy and we know the place.

                        I was thinking of making the trek this year. If I do, I'll probably break from the group occasionally. Will anyone be riding an R* besides me and Jake?

                          Hey guys, been extremely busy with a new house purchase last year plus 2 major renovations to my new and old house. Business has also been keeping my busy, just getting to the point where things are getting back to normal!

                          Gus and I will be leaving New Orleans on September 12th. I kind of like the north GA idea for the first day but that's up to y'all. Lloyds is also fine to me as well. We know it and it's convient being close to the expressway.

                          I will get in toich with Anna and Suzanna to see if they are coming as well and I did invite a guy from the PA area. We should make some firm decisions and reservations pretty soon, I will call Lloyds in the morning to check in. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

                          Grant

                            I would love to get down there for a day or two and catch up with you guys, we will see what happens. Hopefully I will have finished selling off all the extras I put on the roadstar and will show up on an Indian. My oldest graduated college this year so that boat anchor has been dropped from my wallet.

                                I just called and reserved my nights. Sounds like new owners. I told them we were with the road star clinic so I want us all to be together. When you call, make sure you mention that you are with the road star clinic and you want to be down by the end where we normally are.

                                  I talked to Anna and Dwayne, they will be there from the 12th to the 16th. I also talked to Suezanna, she just had knee surgery about 10 weeks ago. She said she is interested in going also and the knee should be good by then.
