Update, less than 2 months away. Plans are to move forward and a good number of cars are scheduled to attend. I have gotten contact information from a number of owners already. If you haven't sent me a private message please do so. I will provide you a wireless number and send more information on meeting time and place as the date gets closer. Depending on where most drivers are coming from I will choose a meeting place. Either Deal’s Gap or the opposite end of the Dragon down by the water. Stay tuned, it’s going to be a great ride!

Itinerary:

Friday June 21, 2019
10:00AM Driver's meet & greet. General group set up and safety brief. There is a rest area at the base of the Dragon on the TN side just before the Little Tennessee River. This is the large rest area right before the water not the pull off up on the Dragon. I will post a picture of the exact location to help those unfamiliar with the area to locate it.

10:30AM 1st Run up the Dragon to Deal's Gap
11:00AM Regroup at Deal's Gap Motorcycle Resort
17548 Tapoco Rd. Robbinsville NC
11:15AM 2nd Run down the Dragon back to our initial meeting place
11:45AM 3rd Run up the Dragon to Deal's Gap

12:15PM -1:15PM Lunch at Dragon's Den Grill right next door to the Deal's Gap General Store.
1:15PM-2:00PM Shopping at the Deal's Gap General Store and Killboy Souvenir Shop across the street.

2:30PM Depart to Fontana Dam. We will be following Moonshiner's 28 out to the Dam.
3:00PM -3:30PM Regroup at the base of the Dam for photos/cool down.

3:45PM-4:15 Drive up to the top of the Dam. More photos.

4:45PM Regroup at Deal's Gap Motorcycle Resort
4th Run down the Dragon to initial meeting place.
5:15PM 5th Run up the Dragon back to Deal's Gap

6:00PM Dinner and group photos at the Tapoco Lodge
14981 Tapoco Rd. Robbinsville NC

Start time of the day is firm however depending on number of cars and how long it takes for group to reassemble we may run slightly ahead or behind schedule for the rest of the day as we progress. Timing to be adjusted accordingly. The objective is to run the Dragon 5 times throughout the day and cover Moonshiner's 28 for drive time. There are good opportunities for photos and some downtime to pick up souvenirs in between.

Saturday itinerary will be posted shortly. I will be communicating with all drivers to determine how many will be joining us on Day two. Stay tuned.

Saturday June 22, 2019
10:00AM Meet up at Deal's Gap Motorcycle Resort
10:30AM Depart and head down the Dragon toward's the Foothills Parkway along the Tennessee River.
Take Foothills Parkway toward's Walland. Leaving Walland heading toward Rt 40 and then follow Rt 40 connecting with Rt 81 up to Bristol TN. The trip from Walland to Bristol is approximately
129 miles.
12:45PM Arrive in Bristol. Time approximate.
1:00PM - 2:00PM Lunch TBD
2:15PM Depart and take 421 towards Shady Valley and ride the Snake out to Mountain City.
3:15PM Arrive Mountain City. Time approximate
4:00PM Head back to Deal's Gap. Route dependent on traffic and timing. Possible route is Rt 81/40 to Rt 441 heading south towards Cherokee then take 74 to Moonshiner's 28 and arrive back at deal's Gap.
6:30PM Final Run down the Dragon for those heading back over into TN.

Saturday is a bit fluid since the trip is longer and there are a lot of variables. Plan is to get at least two runs along the Dragon. One in the beginning of the day the other at the end. For those approaching the Dragon from the NC side we can meet at the bottom of the Dragon around 9:30AM along the Tennessee River and take the Dragon back up to Deal's Gap by 10:00AM to get the rest of the group.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and their rides. Contact me with any questions/suggestions if you're from around the area. Thank you all.

Just a little over 2 weeks away. People have rooms booked at the hotel and some are in cabins near the Tail. Several drivers plan on being in Knoxville Thursday so if there are folks who want to connect downtown for dinner we can possibly coordinate something. Lots of good food and drink either in Historic Gay St or in Old City. Stay tuned everyone.

Hey guys, brand new to the board. I'm impatiently awaiting delivery of my 1SS as we speak. I love Deal's Gap and assuming i get it and can put a few break in miles on it in time I will see you there. I'm planning on bringing a small group which will likely only include a couple Camaros but look forward to running into you all.
