Deals Gap end of Aug

Any interest?

A couple of us are trailering the bikes up and spending 3 days riding. Will be a weekday trip, staying at a hotel in NC. Driving straight up, and back. 15 hrs or so.

Not looking for a huge group.. this isn't a noob ride either.

those are day 2 and 3, day one is the Dragon and Cherahola and 28

I may do this thing if you have room on the trailer. I'm about my bike so will the trailer keep it safe from harm?

If I take it, the big trailer has chocks for 5 bikes with plenty of room between them. 2 in front, one center, and 2 in back. That would involve a second vehicle as my truck is only a extended cab.

Other option is I have access to a second 5x8 trailer that can carry two, if someone wants to pull it.

Right now I plan to take 3 bikes, two in my 5 x 8 and one in the back of the truck.

My plan is to "try" to take some pics and vids....

Which is always the plan....

But once I get on a good road, stopping usually doesn't cross my mind until the gas gauge starts flashing....
