Wow! 2.5 hours! Google Maps say 17h30 to go there for me! lol...

Some friend of mine make the trip in T-Rex each year!

Congrats for your SS;)

Thanks Centhron, We are really looking forward to our SS. I have always rode bikes, dirt and street. I currently have a KTM 690 SM and a Suzuki SV 650 modified. I have only rode the Dragons Tail on a bike, but I cant wait to take the SS.

Thanks for rubbing it in. Seriously, congrats on the purchase. Just be sure to not end up on the tree of shame.

Welcome aboard Dewaine! Sounds like you are in the same boat as the rest of us! I am stoked to see someone else in the NC area. We may just have to organize a ride on the Dragon's tail! I am in the asheville area fairly often for ice climbing and winter mountaineering stuff…not really slingshot season stuff! It would be great to have a reason to head up that way in the warmer seasons!

I hope not, but the tree is proof, somtimes the Dragon wins! Maybe I should carry five smooth stones along for my Slingshot.

Hi Dewaine,
I am sure you have some miles on your SS by now. I live in Denver, NC and we go to and through Asheville quite a bit. Wonderful place in NC and the mountains are fantastic!
I absolutely love my SS except for the heat issues. Working on some ideas I have read from other members to help alleviate it.
When I bought mine in February, I had no problems with heat, lol, but now after it hits 80 here, can hardly stand the heat from the engine and floor boards.
Hope to meet you in Maggie Valley in June. :)

Holdfast, that sounds good.
Well, it looks like I won't be making the Deals Gap get together. That weekend is my son's 7th Birthday, so I will be hanging with him. When he is a little bigger, I will feel more comfortable taking him out for long rides. Hope to make it up that way another weekend soon. It would be great to meet a few of you folks!
