Our NINTH meet in Little Switzerland is happening next month. The dates are Friday July 26 through Sunday July 28. The central location for the meet is once again the Skyline Village Inn on NC 226A.



Contact info for the hotel:
Skyline Village Inn & Cavern Tavern
12255 NC Highway 226A
Between Spruce Pine & Little Switzerland, NC
Phone 828-765-9394

http://www.skylinevillageinn.com

Reservations for the meet HAVE to be made by phone.

It's a funky little hotel that was built back in the 40's. The current owners, Mike and Lynn Thrift, have restored it and are really nice people. The hotel has some really interesting history behind it. It has a good restaurant, and a store with the best beer selection for ~50 miles. Room rates vary from about $80/night to $120/night depending on what location you want (balcony or not) and what discounts you can get. Pets are allowed. Tell them you're with the Buell meet and they'll give you a decent discount.

In case you haven't been before, the Skyline is located smack in the middle of some of North Carolina's best twisty roads, including NC 226A (aka "the Diamondback"), NC 226, NC 80 (aka "the Devil's Whip") and it's within easy riding distance of the Dragon, the Snake, and several other named roads. If you want a more leisurely ride, the Blue Ridge Parkway is ~100 yards away.

This meet is very loosely organized; show up (all makes welcome), grab a few other riders, and head out riding. Hang out at the hotel desk and enjoy a cold brew with a good meal while enjoying one of the best mountain views in the area. We usually try to have one semi-organized ride on Saturday morning. There are several destinations that make good out-and-back group rides. Covered motorcycle parking is provided in back.

If you don't have a bike or don't want to ride it, Mike has a fleet of rental motorcycles so that's a great option.

That's it for today. Block the dates on your calendar, put in your vacation request at work, apply for that second mortgage NOW, and/or start creating a convincing story for your boss/significant other for why you HAVE to be there!

I'll send out another update next month. Post up or PM me if you have any questions.

FREE CAPS!

This year, rather than T-shirts, I'm going to order caps. If you attend the meet, I'll give you one (first come, first served). Please let me know ASAP if you plan to attend so I can order accordingly.



A little over 3 weeks until the meet...

Sounds like fun! Plans for that weekend are already in the books this year but I'll keep my eye out for next year.

Bill- It's always the last full weekend in July, so you can mark your calendar now.

We missed you Don! This was darn near a no-Buell Buell meet until Cornel and friends showed up on 4 Ulys year. Maybe next year.

Wow!!
We did cage it to the antique moto gathering in Chesnee today. Saw a once yellow now red Blast! parked amongst the others; only Buell we saw. But hey Buells don't quite qualify as antiques yet!!
Yes we will do our best to come up for next year's event.

Hi Don. Well, thatís the plan anyway. This will be the 10th one so Iím hoping itíll be a good one. Dates will be July 24, 25, & 26.

Letís hope the current scariness is over, done with, and buried by then, and we can make up for it all with 3 days of mountain riding.
