*Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort has gas pumps, however it is advisable to have a full tank prior to arriving. There are several other gas stations in Robbinsville, and one (Skyway Food Mart) at the jct. of Hwy143 (Cherohala Skyway & Tapoco Road) Hwy 129, just south of the resort. There is a full service motorcycle repair shop ([url]www.wheelersperformance.com/[/URL] ) on Hwy 129 as well. There are also several gas stations in the Vonore area along Hwy 411 just north of the Resort

If you're coming to the Rally there are a few things you should know if you have not been here before.

These may seem simple but they are good to keep in mind.

-Stay in your lane

-Go through slowly the first time.

-Don't try and follow a faster rider.

-Get your runs in EARLY! The Harley guys start waking up around 10.

-If you can get here on Thursday or Friday it will be less busy.

-Don't be complacent going down the hill on either side. Once you pass the overlook there are still sharp curves ahead before you reach the bottom. The same is true once you hit NC and head down to Deal's Gap.

-Stay in your lane -yes, I said it twice.

-Drink lots of water.

-By participating in any group ride/event with this or any other group of riders you are doing so entirely upon your own initiative, will, risk and responsibility. By participation in any event you and those you invite are stating you/they are experienced in and familiar with the operation of motorcycles and fully understand the risks and dangers inherent in motorcycling and you/they are voluntarily participating and you/they expressly imply and assume the entire of any accidents or personal injury, including death, which you/they could sustain to your/their person and property as a result of participation.

-Be a responsible rider, ride smart, ride safe.

I missed this.. argh. And I was really looking forward to taking a road trip.. instead I went to damn Jersey Shore around the same time frame and ended up doing nothing more than going on the beaches trying to relax- instead noticing meatheads giving each other verbal tuggers about their 'delts and letting the saline water of the ocean heal their buttcheek needle wounds!
