After lurking on several GW sites for some time I finally ordered a 2012 GW ABS package. Flying down to drive the bike home next weekend from Schroaders in NC.
Having them add the lighted spoiler and Kuryakyn luggage rack .

Welcome to the GWOF from the Keystone state. I had the spoiler and trunk rack added also when I bought my 09. Also added the Honda LED lights.

Congrats!!!!!!!! I mapped Deltaville and there you are !. What a coincidence in proximity. I'll be coming down to Saluda and West Point around November 10th to visit Chesty Pullers hometown and resting place. I sure would like to see a 2012 in person.

Send me a PM when you are coming. If we are still on the map after this storm I'd be glad to show you the bike.

Ride west, svk. You're right next to the Smoky Mountains. Where are you planning to stop tomorrow or are you just going to stop for fuel and try to beat the storm to your place ?

Ride like you stole it ! Check in here when you get home. Yahoo has your trip home about 450 miles. Leave at 8:00 you should be home by 5 or 6 if you don't dine in. You're going to enjoy it, but you already knew that.

450 miles is very doable if you have some saddle experience on a big cruiser. If you are new to big bikes, that could be fatiguing and therefore dangerous. Be sure to keep your mind right where your hands are.

Thanks for the advice. I've done a lot of 500 to 600 mile days on previous bikes. Always rest as much as I need .... although I'm on a bit of a mission tomorrow
