BITA 12. Twelve? Holy crap!

This year's meet is the last weekend and last 3 days of July.

Big News this year: the Skyline Village Inn is now under new ownership. After 25 years, Mike and Lynn have sold the hotel to a new owner and they will soon be enjoying a well-deserved retirement.

I don't know details on the new owner but hopefully the hotel will remain a VERY motorcycle-friendly establishment. I'll post additional details when I learn more.

The usual meet details follow:



In case you haven't been before, the meet is held at the Skyline Village Inn, 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. See videos below for rides on the local roads.

This meet is very loosely organized; show up (all makes welcome, 2, 3, or 4 wheels), grab a few other riders, and head out riding. In the evening hang out at the hotel deck 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.

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

I don't know if discounts will be available this year, but if you call in to make your reservation, it's worth asking. Tell them you're part of the yearly Buell meet, we usually get a small discount and maybe the new owner will follow suit.

It's a funky little hotel that was built back in the 40's with some really interesting history behind it. It has a good restaurant, and a store with a great selection of craft, imported, and domestic beers. In previous years, room rates have varied from about $80/night to $120/night depending on what location you want (balcony or not). Pets have previously been allowed. Covered motorcycle parking is provided in back.

If you prefer camping, the Bear Den Campground is a few miles away. Hereís their website: https://www.beardenmountainresort.com/

There are a couple of chain motels ~10 miles away in Marion if you'd prefer that.

There are 4 craft beer breweries within a ~20 mile radius, and MANY more in nearby Black Mountain and Asheville. The Skyline has previously served supper 4 or 5 nights a week and breakfast every day. I don't know what the new situation will be. There are several decent restaurants in nearby Spruce Pine and many more within a ~20 mile radius.

Post up or PM me if you have any questions. More info to come.

Not really. The new owners of the hotel made a post to FB on April 6 saying that they were doing spring cleaning, but they havenít posted anything else.

The new owners posted a short video from the hotel this week, giving a quick walkthrough of the secret liquor still cave and kitchen.

Itís on Facebook and I posted it to the event page for this meet in the Bad Weather Bikers Facebook group.
