To give everyone something to look forward to:

To celebrate Ralphumor - Steve Becker’s - retirement his wife, Angie, is setting up a Surprise for Steve of a Meet-n-Greet in Maggie Valley June 24 to 27, 2021. So, if you know Steve, don’t say a word. He may see it here, but he hasn't been on here much.

Angie set up a block of rooms at the Clarketon Motel, 1527 Soco Road, Maggie Valley, NC. Phone 828-926-1110. Please call and talk to Tammy. There are 14 rooms reserved under Goldwing Becker. There also an apartment if you have a group. There are 6 units with a queen bed at $69 per night. 5 units with 2 queens at $89 per night. 1 unit with a king bed at $79 per night. 1 unit with 2 queen beds plus kitchen at $99 per night. There also an apartment with a queen bed at $109 per night. 1 to 2 rooms with 3 queens plus kitchen at $109 per night. Most rooms have refrigerators and microwave. You can reserve with a credit card but to save a service fee, pay with cash on arrival. There are many other places to stay nearby if you don’t like the looks of the Clarketon.

A lot of us met at this same motel in 2015. It is an older place, dated, but clean. The owners were nice and welcoming the last time. It was in September and it rained a lot while we were there, but we still had a great time. Wheels Through Time motorcycle museum is just down the road. It’s just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and not that far to the Dragon, or the road to Hot Springs, NC, Hwy 209, which IMHO is just as good as the Dragon. Not to mention Owl Sh!t Road, or as most know it by; Hwy 215, up to the Blue Ridge Parkway which we did back then, in the rain, with freshly fallen leaves on the road. (Thus, the road name)

Here are some pictures from our last visit. Come join us!

There are no King beds left (no, I did not get one), but our reservations are made. I am hoping that Peach will arrive (no pencils allowed).

Let me be the devil's voice from your left shoulder. "It's a 1000 miles, two days of nice riding to get there. Come on, it's a Goldwing, easy peasy!"

That's only a couple hours away for us, I'll put it in the calendar and follow this thread, would be nice to put faces to names. Or whatever we say now that everything is virtual. Faces to usernames?

3 we have been in the Maggie Valley area several times so time to hit new destinations.

But thanks so much for the invite.

If you decide to tour Alaska, I have to "warn" you.........................It's beautiful !!! Wife and I flew there, and rented a Harley, and tour Alaska a few years ago....It had to be my biggest deam come thru...... No we didn't ride from Massachusetts to Alaska, we flew there, and rented a bike...... (y) :p Flew in one day, and toured for the next week, and then returned bike, and flew home.. it was perfect, zero hassle.....................

We will ride from our home to there and back. We really enjoy the in between areas.

Sorry for the hijack
At the time I didn't have the ride too OR ride home vacation time, so fly / rent / explore / enjoy was all the time I had... so I made due, of the time that I did have, and had too say that the trip, was, indeed very enjoyable, as well as comfortable.... and I didn't have to put any miles (or repairs) on my own bike.......BUT I also agree with you, that I didn't get to chance to see any of "between areas" that I didn't even think of that you mentioned..... Hmmmmmmmmmmmm maybe another trip to be planned............. :love: :love: :love:

And now we know what the issue is with moving west.
Hey Bill. You and JaNICE are welcome to spend a night here if you like. But we are not exactly on your shortest path to the M&G.
