KTM’s KILL the Dragon

Post by GaryCulb » Tue Jan 23, 2018 9:04 pm

KTM’s KILL the Dragon

Did not know if there was interest in a South East KTM Get Together. There is a great place to stay just outside of Robbinsville, NC called the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge ( http://ironhorsenc.com ). They are very Close to Deals Gap to the Tail of the Dragon ( https://tailofthedragon.com ). Presently, they have open April 13 & 14th & August 10 & 11th for a group of about a dozen folks. Might be able to get a KTM Dealer Sponsor for gifts, beer, cake, etc. if we pull in at least a dozen bikes?? Great place to stay & area to ride. Any Interest?? Best,

Doc :? :?

Amazing!! Zero Interest. BMW K1600 guys jumped on this.

Maybe its the name?? How about "KTM's Slay the Dragon".

Even came up with a flyer:

McDirty,

This was all the IHML had open for a group of about a dozen folks/ riders for the Spring & Summer. Will not know IHML Fall availability until mid March. IHML has become a very popular place to stay when in NC. Personally, we really enjoy the Spruce Pine, NC area between Asheville & Boone. The Skyline Viilage Inn & Tavern is fantastic ( http://www.skylinevillageinn.com ). There, I might be able to get much better dates? Best,

Doc :? :?

Im down 5+ times a year some with large and small groups. I've found it easyest to just pick a weekend, say met for breakfast at the resort at a set time and go from there. Trying to get everyone to stay at the same place is always a headache.

That being said. In recent years i stay at rental houses/cabins 90% of the time.

McDirty,

We will be at the IHML with the BMW K1600 group the first week of May 2018 ( https://www.facebook.com/K1600DG/ ). Please feel free to join in with the group ( http://www.k1600forum.com/forum/southea ... 018-a.html ). I will be bringing my 2017 KTM SDGT with me. The Spirited group is lead by Kevin (AKA: FLASH/ qbird66) who lives in Johnson City, TN. We hit some great routes. Best,

Doc :D :D

Winter was pretty long here in SC, USA. Had a free day so, headed up to Deals Gap & the Tail of the Dragon. No Cops & few riders. KTM SDGT was amazing on the Dragon & did fantastic on the 725 mile day. Need to work on my positions in the Twisy's. Best,

Doc :D :D

Thinking of going up the weekend of April 14th, 2018. Would arrive Friday the 13th, ride the 14th & part of the 15th & return on Sunday, 15 April 2017. We would not have a sponsor due to too few KTM's showing up. If you plan on attending call the IHML at 828.479.3864 ( http://ironhorsenc.com ) or just want to ride- let me know. Best,

Doc :? :?

How many bikes need to show up to be sponsored.

I think we need to pick a later date. April is way to risky in the smokies. im sure i can get 20ish ktms down there
