I plan to ride from Asheville - hoping to get out of town Friday night, but it might be Saturday morning. It'll be my first one, so all I know is what's on the website. Sounds like a blast, though! Let me know what plans you cook up - mine are pretty flex, don't have a room yet, probably wouldn't turn down a trailer lift, either!

I do have a enclosed trailer that will hold 2 bikes and a jeep to pull it. How far is it from here? I work until 630 on fridays but may be able to switch with someone. It sounds like fun. I am new to riding. I have been riding for about 8 months and love it. My fiance is deployed so I dont have anyone to ride with and would love to meet some other female riders in the area.

Raleigh is about 4 hours from Asheville, and Fontana Village/Deals Gap is about 2 hours (?) from Asheville, but you go through Asheville to get to Deals Gap. I just found out that I have a mandatory training until 5pm that Friday. If you were trailering up there Friday night, I'd love a lift (but leaving Raleigh @ 7pm sounds rough unless you're a real night owl), and would probably ride myself home on Sunday afternoon. I haven't checked out the accomodations, really - just assuming I can still get a room or something. I probably ought to get on that!

How long has your husband been deployed? When do you get to see him again? My heart is with you!

Well I am going to try and trade with someone so that I have friday off...but I have to ask around first. If I can get the day off then I can time it so that I am going through asheville around 5 or 6. It would definitely help to share the cost. My fiance has been gone for 5 months and he will be back in September. I absolutely cannot wait!! By the way nice bike..how long have you been riding?

You guys are so cute and happy! I'm sure you are counting the days until September....

I started riding dirtbikes in 2004 and got my first streetbike, a 1971 Triumph Tiger, in 2005. It had tons of style, but I could never get comfortable on it (though I am very proud of myself for mastering the kickstart thing!) and knew I wanted a better-handling bike, so I got a 250 Ninja last spring and upgraded to my f4i a month ago. What are you riding?

I have a 05 cbr 600 f4i. My fiance bought it for me last christmas. So that is what I learned on. It took some getting use to ( and a few bumps and bruises) but I absolutely love it! Now I am addicted to it. I am going to ask around and see if I can find somebody to work that friday. I really want to go the more I think about it!
