Well, NC guideline right now is *up to* 75% capacity with the caveat that tables must be 6' distant from one another..  thaats prob why they went down to 6 tables.. distancing based, not capacity based.

Oh well, I'll get mine to go and eat out front  :thumb:

Right now, my Griso is a unicycle (See "Beaten by a F***ing Tire) so who knows what I'll ride over.

I still plan to be there, however my plans have changed.  I'm required to travel for work that week and I'm flying home on Friday.  So I will probably ride up on Saturday.  I was originally planning to come up on Friday and camp.  I may still camp on Saturday.

Eight days out.  Looks like it might rain but we will make the best out of it.  REMEMBER limited seating due to COVID so you will probably have a wait for lunch!  I cant help that.  Hope to see you all Saturday the 24th!

200+ miles one way for me, so I'm not too enthused about riding all day in the wet.  Here's hoping for a dry weekend.  Some people say it's fun to ride a motorcycle in the rain. Of course, some people say it's fun to go to the dentist!  :tongue:

Just looked at the extended forecast for Waynesville.  Low temps looks to be the bigger problem.   Low 40's every morning and low 60's is where it tops out in the afternoon.

OK Sounds like the bad weather forecast may cause some not to go for lunch.  I fully understand.  If you are not going please state so here, so i know, or you can text me (with your screen name because i probably dont have your number to show me who you are) to (920) four one two-zero zero eight 8.

If nobody wants to go I will cancel it, but I will still go camping in the area.  Im not just going to sit at home!

Thank You  Bob

I'm still coming Bob, may even convince Little Lupe to join me...  We wont depart in the rain, but if it looks clear we will be there.  She is more tolerant to riding than rain than I am, but I think thats because I catch all the wet and she's shielded by my wide frame back there

I'll probably ride over on the GS instead of the Griso.  Sorry Moto Guzzi, but heated grips and jacket wins out over style and sound, at least this time of year.  :wink:

REMINDER.  Due to Covid and state procedures there is limited seating inside the restaurant so you may have to wait a while for lunch.  (Wait your turn), or maybe get it to go and sit outside if its not raining???  Oh well, we will make the best of it.   :bike-037:

Waynesville forecast just shows a chance of thunderstorms.  And those are supposed to be late in the day.  So at least at this early juncture, I don't think weather looks too bad, although a bit cool.  Sunday (for anyone spending the night) look great.

Weather forcast in WNC shows 'chance of rain' or 'chance of thunderstorms' every day from march 1 until about Sept 1 every year anyway...  Learned a long time ago if you wait for that to pass, you will never leave the house 2.5 seasons out of the year. We get more rain than Seattle or London in Asheville

I received an email from a member who said they are not going because of all the people not decisive if they are going or not.  He brings up a valid point...50 degrees and rain...TOUGHEN UP!  The weather isnít always going to be perfect and if we want these meet and greet lunches to continue, participation, and commitment is needed.  Some people have to plan for a campsite, take off work, etc etc and commitment by riders is needed for these to keep happening.

I can stop planning the meet and greets if that is preferred but I wonít cancel due to weather unless its dangerous (Blizzards, tornadoes, heavy storms in forecast etc) but 50 degrees and rain wonít cancel it.

Iím going either way.  Camping out Friday through Sunday and riding over to the restaurant in the rain, with cold weather gear on and eat a lunch....and if I have to wait my turn due to covid at the restaurant...so be it.  Ride safe everyone, I will get off my soapbox now.

I wasnt able to go.  I had posted that I had to go to Wisconsin for business for three weeks over that period.

I thought the whole beauty of a casual ride-in lunch meet & greet was that you dont have to lock in plans, you dont have to travel all day and camp and commit and pay like a rally where they need firm head counts for meals and tent spaces etc..  Isnt that the point of rotating location where you can drop in, chat, look at the bikes, eat & drink (or not) and then roll home and only commit to a day trip or a half day outing? If I made reservations and paid a rally fee and planned to meet riders there, I would for sure ride in 50deg rain to get there. But it's early in the season, I have all summer of beautiful weather to ride, and I have plenty to do around the house to keep me occupied which all seems better than forcing myself out of the house in drizzling rain with 48deg temps.

If the weather is nice and I feel like it and my wife hasn't devised a scheme to ruin my back and break my knees with physical labor... I'll be there.

If it's raining when I need to leave, or my godson shows up with the catalytic converter we need to install on his car, or I dont get my walkway project completed during the afternoons after work this week, or I just dont feel like it.. I wont.

Hope to see ya'll there!  :bike-037:

I have gotton three requests to cancel the Saturday meet and greet lunch due to 90% precipitation for heavy rain and temperatures at 50 degrees.  Cant buy a break when it comes to these meet and greets and the weather it seems like.  Supposed to be heavy rain now. The event meet and greet lunch is still a go.  I understand if nobody goes because of the weather.  I and Bubba will still go to eat, rain and cold or not.  Again, I understand if nobody goes.  Stay well!

Unless the weather forecast changes I will not be going, however there are a few days before departure. Hopefully things will change. Last nights forecast shows rain where I live in Georgia on Saturday as well as Waynesville with up to a half inch in the Waynesville area. I had planned on camping at BRMC. Cold and rainy to start out- I am not as tough as I used to be.
