UPDATED AGAIN ON AUGUST 3, 2013

########################################

RE-RELOCATING TO GOSSET'S GROCERY in Leicester
(The term "grocery" is misleading because it's more than that)

This new location has several advantages:


1. Huge outdoor canopy with lots of picnic tables under it.
2. Lots of motorcycle parking right where you eat.
3. Faster better cheaper breakfast.
4. Any size coffee for $1.00
5. Two blocks closer to Asheville.



%%% Greater Asheville Motorcycling Area EVERYSATURDAYMORNING Breakfastmeet&Ride %%%

WHEN: Any or every warmish, dryish, Saturday morning you choose to show up,
9AM for breakfast and/or 10AM for rides (a possible variety of rides depending on what type of bike you are riding that particular Saturday)
WEATHER PERMITTING. No prior planning necessary: just show up or not.


WHERE: GOSSET'S GROCERY IN LEICESTER
across from Leicester Automotive
(From Asheville NC, ride NW on Hwy 63
to 2741 New Leicester Hwy).


WHO: Advriders of the World, living in or visiting the Greater Asheville Motorcycling Area. Please join us any Saturday.

WHAT: Three Choices:
1. Ride to Breakfast (9am), & ride home afterwards.
2. Ride to Breakfast (9am), plan rides during breakfast, join any group ride after breakfast (departing about 10am).
3. Breakfast at home, meet at 10am for a group ride.


WHY: Why not? FAST access to dirt, gravel, and twisty paved roads. Why plan rides individually, when we can meet same time same place every week (or not)?

PLENTY of parking.


See you there this Saturday,

WEATHER PERMITTING.




FAQ's:

# Yes, there can be more than one ride, depending on who shows up on what kind of bike. For instance, if 5 or 10 guys show up on dualsports, and 5 or 10 guys show up on streetbikes, then they would form 2 different groups for 2 different rides that Saturday.

# Yes, bring your friends.

# Yes, you can post it elsewhere.


# Yes, bring your maps and GPS's

Bluhduh Madison County NC Twisted Road Landslide & Sinkhole Report


MADISON COUNTY NC TWISTED ROAD LANDSLIDE & SINKHOLE REPORT


Rick Lance on a Gamma, and I on a 690 SMC, toured the rain damage today:

* Chapel Hill Road & Spillcorn Road = Landslides from above these roads have been cleared. Both passable.

* Guntertown Road = Barricaded, but passable by dirtbike, though probably not advisable to do so. Maybe 100 ft of road has slid down the mountain. Roadcrews have apparently filled a lot of it back in. 7/11/13 still barricaded.

* Revere Road = Barricaded, but passable by motorcycles with street tires & about 7 inches of ground clearance or more, though probably not advisable to do so. Maybe 50 ft of road has dropped down about 2 ft or so. Slide appears to be very slow and may still be in progress. 7/11/13 no change.

* Dry Pond Road = A section of road has dropped at least 1 ft. Hole is becoming bigger with time. A small strip was still passable by motorcycle through 7/8/13. Newly barricaded on 7/11/13, roadcrew at work.

*Lots of debris on many Madison County roads. Got a flat tire from glass in the road on 7/11/13.

Weather permitting!

I was planning on riding the 530 Supermoto on pavement and gravel.

(So many of the best paved twisty roads are blockaded or loaded with debris. I got a flat tire from glass in the road the other day).

The Intellicast radar is showing rain moving right into that area from the south. It's already raining here in Canton.

Playing it by ear at this point.

It's about 825am, and most of that rain on the radar seems to be dissipating

The paved road that runs down along Paint Creek (FS 41) is barricaded due to flood damage. The lower end is open up to just beyond the swimming hole.

Meadow Fork

has one of my Givi E360's somewhere just past the pothole left by the crew putting in a drainage ditch at the private Authur Road. If you happen upon it near a road or perhaps even see it in the river please PM me, hell call me. 828 231 6685. I was headed away from 209 when this happened. We looked for an hour, I even walked a few hundred yards in the creek. Nothing.

Oh yeah it bent both my rims on both sides too.

ouch, guess I turned around while I was ahead. sorry to hear it. did you get home under your own steam I hope? turned out that I did drag my belly in that turn so I guess that's why the rear let go on me.
