It is now apparent that our venue has become a busy little place and as a result of that, we have had to move our dates up a week in order to secure enough lodging for the group. Hopefully weddings, track days and graduation ceremonies won't prevent you all from coming along.

For reservations call: 828-675-4691 and do mention that you are with Lloyd's Yamaha group.


For those unfamiliar with what this is all about, read through a bit of our past threads.

You know for sure I'll be there and I'm hoping we can get the same cast of characters that have attended in years past.
We missed some regulars this past rally and their absence was truly felt. We also had some new guys and their attendance was really enjoyed so wouldn't it be great if we had a reunion with everyone there, even the folks that have changed bikes like Mike78 and FZJohn.
I know we would also like to see some friends with other bikes and some representation of a few FJ, XSR and 07s.
As some of you are aware I tried to get Jessica Alba has my roomate for the 17 rally and the bitch dumped me for Bowinkle so when he didn't show up I had to settle for Turbo Dave.
This year I'm reaching out to Shakira. Now that shes' a bit older she would probably be able to handle the excitement of the rally and I'm hoping Bowinkle won't embarrass me once again.

I'm as in as I can be 8 months out. Should I go ahead and call Van to secure my reservation with a CC or are we just in the planning process?

Thanks for spearheading this again RTF. This year was great and I suspect if we get a few more of the regulars, 2018 will be even better!

The lodging is secure. I wouldn't imagine that anyone needs to actually throw down a credit card until the springtime.
But then again...there are only 10 rooms and a couple of cottages available.

I'd be in for this. There isn't an East Coast race that weekend so I'd be free.
But there are races that weekend. They start on Friday morning at Double Island Road just outside Micaville. From there up to 197 East over to 226 and then 226A splitting off at 80 South! Qualifying is on Thursday. :eek:nthego:

(Full disclosure-----no speed limits will be exceeded and lean angle is limited to 25 degrees)

So Les, who all do you have lined up to drive that route on Wednesday afternoon and change the existing speed limit signs to what we need/want them to be? :icon_thumright:

I really want to walk around that dudes car "collection"(read: graveyard) on Double Island. I stopped on the side of the road by it on my way back down when we were up there this year, but thought better of it. Figured the good folk up there might exercise the shotgun/trunk storage treatment with strangers wearing tight leather pants trespassing on their land.

That pavement was niiiiice this year. Won't mention the gravel in fear of Jared ridiculing my delicate millenial sensibilities again. :(((

If I were you, I would walk up to the house associated with that junk pile, knock on the door and then step back off of the porch and wait for the resident to come to the door. I would guess the resident wouldn't mind letting you have a peek. I've had one interaction with a resident on Double Island and they were most helpful and friendly despite me riding..."one of them crotch rockets".

I'm gutted that you can't come. The dates can't be changed. But, if you want to call in sick, the phone in the motel office is free to use.
