I am definitely in! Hope the hotel has a lot of rooms because I suspect this will be a well attended event! :thumbsup:

 

Dave you need to make it clear that the autograph session is for our “poster boys”, Ken and Mark!

I'm like SO in! :D

 

Assuming that's the same hotel and they haven't changed their soap and shampoo provider, every shower's a “come to Jesus” experience!

We have the Best Group Of Riders! Thank you one and all for your enthusiastic response! If you're making your reservations on line, the system should be working now. And just a note, the Motel has a new software package that isn't as flexible as the old one, so a few things to note.

 

If you want a SMOKING ROOM, either add that in the notes or better yet, call directly. The Motel has 6 smoking rooms ( 1Q, 1K and 4 x 2dbl).

 

When reserving online, all of the available rooms show up, starting with the most expensive rooms. The first is the apartment and the next is the 2q in the annex - these are newer rooms and slightly larger and have inside entry. If you're looking to the cheaper double queen room, it's found at the bottom of the page.

 

Here's a screen shot of all the rooms and rates. Smoking rooms are not shown due to software limitations, so it's best to call for a smoking room!

I had been quietly hoping START would be a week earlier. Retiring at the end of March and headed for Italy and points north on April 23 for a month and had hoped to get in some serious riding in advance. Weather permitting, I'll ride up to Sparta the previous week and have a look around.

Just noticed and wanted to be sure Bernie and Mark noted this on the Allegahany Inn website in bold lettering:

 

New for 2014: Coffee makers and hair dryers in every room!

 

Then again, I suspect the coffee will not be up to Bernie's liking, Mark does not drink coffee, and of course Mark brings his own hair dryer. :grin:

That means you get the room supplied hair dryer all to yourself and can use it anytime you need to! :stir: Now we know the secret glue that keeps you guys roommates!

Barbie and I just booked the last room with a KING bed. My farm is just down the road near Dobson, NC. It will be weird attending without Paul Winter to race with.

I have a schedule conflict but I am trying to fix that. If can fix it it would be great to have a riding partner.

Once you START

You have to FART

And after that

There's no staying apart. :burnout:

 

What a great START for our return Visit to Sparta! Jerry, Keith (and your significant others) and John - Great to have you back after a brief absence!

Now Randy, I wouldn't be so sure. What with Endo's enthusiasm for sponsoring The ALL YOU CAN EAT pizza SMORGASBORD, plus the fact that we have his credit card number - I can see this party going well after the Good Doctor had turned in for the night. Probably till the booze runs out or we see Bernie heading out at first light.

Bernie doesn't wait for first light, he has lights on his bike and all you see is his HyperLites when he leaves. :bike:

Enthusiastic yes! However, I have canceled that credit card! :grin:

I'm not sure which gets more abused...Endo's CC or Marks hair dryer.
