Gsxs tail of the dragon event

I was thinking next year all of us east coast riders or whoever wants to attend would want to start an annual meet. I think this would have an amazing turn out and it would be nice for all of us to get together. Please give your consensus on what you think relating dates or possible different locations.

I was thinking a weekend in may would be good since it starts to warm up and the cold won't scare anyone away

FZ1 aka FZ1OA has been doing it for years, we use to stay at Fontana Village. I went the first 2 years and it was great, the planners got sponsors for prizes I got a set of tires once for the second longest distance to the rally (851miles). There was a big barbecue on Sat, people had those dumb name tags on. It was fun with 200 FZ1's riding around the area, but it takes a lot of planning.

I'm down for whatever. I'm usually up there at least 4 times a year. I'd like to come with my toy hauler so I'll have to stay down near robbinsville or stecoah valley down on 28.

Or we could host it in Suches Ga. At Two Wheels of Suches. I'm sure Bill would not mind. Lodge there with rooms, plenty of camping spots, bunk houses to rent and good food at a reasonable price in the lodge. Not to mention at the driveway either direction takes you to the best roads in the country.

I heard great things about suches GA, I've never been but it's all about the same distance for me I'm down for whatever, I was just using the tail as a centerpoint since alot of us go there. If we can get a ruff estimate of how many people would attend I can do most of the planning and we can make this the first gsxs event ever to my knowledge
roy826 and lost like this.

Fieromx3, I would agree with you but I'm all about learn from your mistakes and the only way to learn is by doing. My friend bought a brand new mt09 and crashed it in a parking lot at 133 miles and snapped the bars and cracked the tank and case covers and I told him I'll fix it and $800 later it was fixed and not even a week later at 350 miles he crashed it again because he got scared of a bump in a turn and it wasent that bad this time but he cracked his rim and other things and I told him that I'm not fixing it this time your going to learn and I made him go to the dealer to get it fixed and $1800 later he learned. Btw this all happend within one month and we took him to the tail and 226a diamondback and he started slow but he learned and synced with the bike and now he's at 3k and loves to ride instead of being scared
