2017 gsxr.com meet - deals gap - May 27th to June 4th

Let's start planning our 3.0 meet

We all decided that we want to do this yearly and if you haven't been out there yet, it is an outstanding time

The idea of everyone pitching in and renting a cabin for the week was thrown out there. Srad also suggested planning the trip from wed-sun and I think that'd be great. Give us time to do other things in the town besides bikes. I'd love to spend a day on the river tubes, that looked like a blast.

Add input, guys, whatcha think?

I am down for either booking a room at the resort (which we would have to do actually pretty soon) or camping out again or the cabin, doesn't matter to me.

Official date and time:
Official kewl kid list:
Official place to hang our lids:

Is it 2017 yet!?!

Got a mind that a map wouldn't find

I love the idea of a cabin not too far away.
We do need commitments way in advance so we would know what size cabin to look for.
I'm in.

That's kind of what I am thinking too so we'll need the kewl kid list rather soon.

I think if everyone threw in for a cabin it would end up saving some money down the line because we would be able to cook and not have to go to a restaurant for every meal too

Shouldn't be that much being split that many ways

I would honestly prefer to get a place to stay a little bit further away from the super twisty roads just for Chevrolet Suburban on 33 inch mud tires reasons

If you think about it no matter what every time we left the resort it was about 30 to 40 minutes to wherever we were going. Plus almost every road up that way is super impressive and twisty.

Im sure my wife would prefer us in a cabin or hotel just for the cell phone service

I thought I should keep the flame burning for 2017. Yes, North Carolina is wonderful after the cool front passed yesterday.

I just recently visited asheville for the 4th of july. Is was a great time up there and I already want to go back. I don't have a bike trailer yet but it's something I have been considering. Is anyone welcome to join in your rides, or is it just for the "kewl kids". haha.

That's what I'm doing for sure, even if it's just me. I want to go thru the least amount of mountains and turns with my truck and trailer as possible next time

I mean we got 11 months to plan/save, next year I wanna stay for a little longer too

I would likely travel with the wife(unless thats frowned upon), she's a super cool chick. I'm not sure she would be down to ride to NC on the back of the bike though.She's got a tight small ass, and I dont think it would make it that far. lol. Sounds like fun though. I am definitely interested. I know you invited me to this past one, I just wasn't ready yet. I will try for 17'

The weather has been pretty nice. Mid 80's and not too humid. There have been some pretty consistent afternoon thunderstorms.

I'll be at Road Atlanta on Friday. Partly cloudy and 93 so not horrible. But it will be warm.

Maybe I'm wrong, but my understanding was kind of a boys trip?

Dude we're all family together there, if ur wife wants to come with than by all means. It's just a rather advanced and overall tiring set of rides. My wife's reasoning was she didn't wanna be on the back of my bike all day or sit in a cabin alone in the woods double glocks and I'd still feel weird leaving her too

Nah, it's all good. Those are all solid points. I do pretty well on my bike even with her on, but she would definitely hold me back. I wouldn't call myself advanced, I still have some chicken strips to get rid of. But I'm sure I could hang ok.

@ 2:50, isn't that the GROM accident we saw headed up the dragon to go ride when we were invaded with GROMs? Dude on opposite side of road...

If you guys haven't been too or stayed at Historic Topoco lodge I'd recommend it for sure. Lovely place and reasonably priced. have whole cabins as well and is right at the entrance to the gap.

I was thinking something a little further away. Not too too far, just enough to keep my truck and trailer away from those crazy sharp curves

I think something away from the TIGHT turns of the dragon is what he meant

Those other roads with the bigger sweeping corners aren't so bad with a trailer. The actual tail and roads tight like that are brutal and I didn't even have a trailer this trip...
