Phone: 866-926-0201

Group rate is $75/night + 11% tax for Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday nights.
June 18th is start of Methodist conference at Lake Junaluska, so hotel rates will go up Thursday.

When you call, tell them you want the “Sport-Touring” motorcycle group rate.
Deposit required – 1st night will charged immediately to your credit card when you make a reservation.
Cancellation policy for a full refund is 72 hours before date of arrival or you will be charged for one night.
They will hold a block of rooms at the group rate until April 1.

They have 100 rooms with an onsite restaurant, lounge and poolside tiki bar.  Complimentary morning coffee & juice is offered.  Covered motorcycle parking is available and they provide free towels and water to clean your bike at their on-site Maggie Valley Motorcycle Welcome Center.  There is ample paved parking that will accommodate trailers.  The BP Gas Station is next door as well.


t-Shirts & group dinner can be arranged later, when we have a better idea of turnout.

This is always the easiest STN National in the rotation for me to attend but I won't make it this year unless my plans change.    

I am actually planning a bigger bike trip that will take me all the way to the left coast and back and the dates are in conflict.

IN!!! The number of multi-day trips I've done has tailed off the last couple years. I need to do a proper week-long moto trip and this is the perfect reason to go. Plus work won't be killing me.

THANKS FOR SETTING THIS UP FRANK!!!

What is the date of Clay's annual BBQ?

I want to make it to both, but I might only be able to make it to one. If his BBQ gets any bigger, we might want to consider holding the next National near him.  Lol

I'd like to go, but it's too far removed (date wise) from the FZ1 rally I must attend this year to make up for last years debacle.

Depends on what you consider to be "partying."

Some of them have been old, wrinkled sausage-fests.  EEK!

...


New bike or not, you better have new rubber on.   It's 2k miles not counting the twisty bits, and that'll double your miles.

I'm trying to figure out how to burn the last 1000 miles off my tires without eating too much off the new skins before June.

That is, assuming I don't buy a new bike this Spring - FJR or Ninja with hard bags?

Hmmm.  I have a cousin in Holland MI that I haven't seen for awhile...No way, I hear you need heated gear up there in June.

I was up in the UP over the 4th of July week and one morning it was 45 deg. And yes i had the heated gear.

Why not just ride it and get new rubber the week before?  Just be careful when you're down to the cords.  Wink

looks like a pretty good trip.  

If you decide to do this route/trip, let me know.  I've got a place in franklin, Tn (15 miles south of Nashville) you can stay at. I was planning on heading over to the national on either Sunday or Monday.  If I go sunday, I plan on staying at the Deal's Gap that evening, then taking a longer route to M. Valley on Monday.  If I go on Monday I plan to head over all the way...aprox 300 miles via Cherahola Skyway and Deal's Gap from here to M. Valley....all back roads.
