Hey Nivin! 

I’m honored to be one of your “few more folks” but sadly June is going to be too busy for me to make it on the weekend on/after 6/8.

My younger son is getting married in PA the next weekend. Then the wife and I are going with the MSTA folks to the national rally in Bristol VA the last week of June. 

I’d be thrilled to visit VA TN NC twice in a month!  But the wedding will have us hopping and will stress the wife more than a bit. So, just one MC trip that month 😀

Chris

I’ll be there. Either staying at Tuskegee Motel or chipping in on a cabin. If I can get firm commitments, I’ll reserve a cabin. So if anyone wants to join....let me know.

Haha Chris never meant it as an “after thought” I was just going through previous gap threads and tagging folks randomly. And those who are regulars here and not much active in previous gap trip I am just now tagging to see if they are interested to join this year. That’s all :)  AFAIK you never made it to the OR gap trip right? 

Talking about folks who made it before, ? @Connie14 any chance to make it ?

I'd like to go, but I will probably be too busy in June.   I am going with wife and kids to the OBX.  I will take the Connie and meet them there at the end of June.   

I may also ride out to the Badlands to meet my parents for a long weekend at the beginning of June, if I can make it work.   

I definitely want to go on another one of the OR Gap trips.   My current work/family schedule is hectic.

Nivin, I wasn’t complaining about or feeling like your mention was an afterthought. The comment was meant to be about the “few” when, for that post, you only mentioned me. I guess I should have highlighted the word. Humor is or can be difficult in text. 

I haven’t been to the gap.  20 years ago I used to live in Kingsport, fairly near there. But I wasn’t riding then. I’m sure some people at the Bristol rally will swing thru the gap. But we’ll likely be visiting fav spots near Kingsport.

I thought him and his friends are going to be in that area and might overlap one day with our group. @Steve Butters want to show him my exhaust, dedicated to his motivating speech :D

there will be 10 million groms and ruckuses on the dragon that week anyway, and most will be slow as hell. they will fit right in.

I'll be keeping track of how many bikes, and of what variety, you pass on the Grrom.

I was already on the fence.  This might keep me from going.  👎

dont worry, groms are fiercely territorial species. These is a an area beyond which they dont usually go. The best roads are outside that radius.

With riders on faster bikes getting antsy behind slower traffic, and Groms lacking the hp to pass in many situations...this sounds a bit like a shit show, complete with lots of slow traffic and unsafe passes.
