Almost time to Rally. A week from today, but some folks arrive sooner.

One way or another, all roads lead to Stecoah NC. So find your road to western NC so you can come join us.

Shirts were ready on Monday so I went and picked those up. Got them to Kurt & Nancy so they could sort the shirts and get them into the Goodie Bags for the people that bought shirts. All the usual details stuff is done or nearly done.

I plan to arrive Iron Horse by Thursday noon. I am looking forward to seeing everyone next week.

btw: I just called the Iron Horse. They have the #200 Semi-Private Cabin available for $89.95. Twin beds so 2 people and split the cost if you are interested in coming. They also have four (4) of the 110v hookup Tent camping sites available if you want to camp. If RV is more your style they have one (1) RV Hookup site available for next weekend. Contact Iron Horse at (828) 479-3864 if you want to reserve a spot for next weekend.

Jeff

New Gear!

Since last year, I have some new gear. You guys won't recognize me.

Kurt/Nancy and Nick (BIL) have been a good influence to lead by example. Both of them have bought new protective gear to be prepared in case of the unthinkable.

I finally have a new jacket and a new modular helmet. Gloves are en route. Pants are still in the future.

I will no longer look like I fit the time period for my bike, but maybe it will save me from a hospital visit or worse.

My bike is ready and so am I. Maybe I'll polish it a little more over the weekend.

See you next Thursday afternoon!

Blue Ridge Parkway

An FYI about the Blue Ridge Parkway

I came down the BRP a couple weeks ago. There are numerous Paving & Striping roadwork projects going on so just be aware you may have to sit 15 minutes or so a few times. I'm not sure about the far northern end at Waynesboro VA but from Fancy Gap where the BRP crosses I-77 south to Asheville there you are likely to hit multiple paving or painting projects. Paving was a Chip & Seal deal but it wasn't oily but it could be if it was hot. If you are looking for a yellow paint job on your bike just follow the paint truck. Fancy Gap I think is MM 199 (or as they call it Mile Post), Boone / Blowing Rock about MM290 and Asheville about MM380. Of course the southern end of the BRP at Cherokee is MM469.

Shouldn't impact the Rally since the 90 mile southern end of the BRP shouldn't have any new construction project until next year and didn't have any a few weeks ago.

Just an FYI if you were thinking of jumping on the BRP for a ways. Recommend having a workable route if you give up and bail off the BRP. Can get into some serious time consuming and bad roads if you bail off the BRP at the wrong spots. Remember BPR is a Federal road so a ticket is a Federal ticket. I don't know the costs or details about what happens if caught for speeding or the other things (maybe wheelie down the highway) but I hear a little jail time could be in the mix for going over the posted limits.

Parts Van to the rally....

XS11 Friends,
Nancy and I are preparing for the trip to Stecoah. We rent a van to carry the other bikes, the t-shirts, hats, vendor gifts, and etc.

I'm making a little box of critical spare parts for "Just in Case" for my XS1100. I was in the attic this morning and realized I have darn near enough stuff to build two or three bikes. I have far more spares and extras than I will EVER need.

If there is something you want or need for your XS1100, please shoot me a PM. I'll look to see if I have one. Note: these parts may not be pristine but they would be functional spares or I would have tossed them already. Unless your looking for a fuel tank or a set of carbs, I don't want anything in return except a handshake.

Sincerely,

Mike,
LOL LOL LOL..... That Snowmobile helmet/faceshield really was entertaining especially on the BRP when it rained! Maybe Officer Huckabee won't recognize you?

Nancy and I did upgrade our jackets and I purchased a new helmet. I wear the new one when riding alone as I haven't transferred the intercom system to the new one. I'm disappointed with my new helmet as it is EXTREMELY wind noisy and has the new style bayonet fitting I also have come to dislike. Get what ya pay for and this was a "relatively inexpensive" helmet. I have a MELON size head and none of the other manufacturers make a MELON head in the bright yellow color I want. Looking at a SHOEI in White for the next one.

Nancy and I also NORMALLY wear our "Sliders" but I will often "Look Period Correct" with Levi's and UnderSliders.

Geeee. Is there any surprise that "Mike would be polishing his bike"?

Looking forward to seeing you there. Nancy & I arrive on TUESDAY very early A.M to get all the banners up and enjoy a little riding. We'll do bit of road checking too before our friends arrive.

Jeff didn't mention it but WAYAH road is new and PERFECT!

Wahoo, or Wayhoo, or ...

Oooooohhhhh!..... Wayah Road was already on my agenda, even with the previous groovy pavement on the west end.

I probably won't hear Officer Huckabee say the same thing this year, "Didn't think I'd be catching you (an old 750 cruiser), thought I'd be gettin' one o' them sport bikes..." [something like an FZR1000]

My HJC modular helmet also has excessive wind noise. It was the one disappointment about it. I bought a chin guard to redirect some of the wind flow, but it didn't help much.
