A few months ago, another member of the BMWMOA started asking on the BMWMOA forum about routes, roads and places to stay on a trip he was planning to take this spring in the southeast and on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I offered some lodging suggestions and some roads to try out. He liked some of the suggestions that others and myself gave to him.
One of their stops is going to be Blairsville, GA and he messaged me and asked if we’d like to come ride with them for while before they headed up to the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge in Robbinsville, NC. Well we of course said yes! It’s a great chance to show off some our fantastic motorcycling roads here in north Georgia. I’ve spent a few days looking at routes and planning a ride we could take before sending them on up to the Iron Horse. We’re really looking forward to it.
Donna is off the week they’ll be coming through. We had been thinking of taking a short one or two night trip somewhere later in the week already. Then last night Donna says “Since we were looking for a place to go anyway, why don’t you call the Iron Horse tomorrow and see if we can get a room reservation?” You see the Iron Horse is a motorcycle lodge and campground but we’re not campers so we get a cabin/room. Today I did just that and we’ll be showing Mike & Wendy the way up to the Iron Horse! I think this will be really fun! And then to add to it, other friends of ours from the BMWMOGA will already be up there at the Iron Horse but leaving the day we arrive. However because of some construction at their home they may extend their stay now!
