Will definitely be there if I can get over the f#@king -. What timing. Just bragging the other day about dodging the bullet for the last  2yrs and not catching it. :violent1:

This is a great rally! Whether there’s 50 or 100+ attendees, fun is typically had by all. You will see old & new bikes, old & new riders, mostly old, and be able to meet new like minded motorcyclists, and enjoy all the great features of the Blue Ridge. There appears to be some rain in the forecast, but don’t let that slow you down, we often get just enough to keep you alert. The last several years, non -, have included record numbers of attendees. Bob & Ron and their charming wives, Joan & Alice, have made this a great MG event. I’ll be traveling with 3 others and we’ll be arriving on Friday. See you there…

How about one of you knowledgeable MG mechanics bring the equipment to balance TB and TPS setting. I’m a paying customer 🤔👍

Thanks for the post  :coffee:I  took the days off work, but never registered for the rally and then forgot why I requested Fri-Mon off  :boozing:

I may make it yet, already planned a bunch of projects for my 4-day weekend, so I might just come up for Friday night and depart Saturday

The NC Rally will be held at High Country MC Camp, near Wilkesboro. I've camped there several times over the years, and other than it being miles from nowhere, it's a good campground.

"Aug 5 to Aug 7, 2022
NORTH CAROLINA GUZZIS IN THE BLUE RIDGE
Come join us for our Annual Moto Guzzi Enthusiasts Gathering in the North Carolina Mountains where there will be plenty of scenic ride opportunities as well as socializing among those who enjoy these wonderful Italian motorcycles. Our rally site for 31 years, Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground, was washed out when the Pigeon River flooded September 2021 (just two weeks after our 2021 event). Since repairs are still underway, we have moved the campout for this year to High Country Motorcycle Camp, which is located 18 miles west of Wilkesboro, North Carolina. The new address is: 765 Stony Fork Road, Ferguson, North Carolina. At the camp there are four chalets and a house that can accommodate four. Also there are nearby independent sites that have Teepees for rent. There are hotels in Wilkesboro. Contact the campground for more details about accommodations in and around the site. We will remain a pay as you go event, charging $10 for Saturday evening meal and accepting donations for other food, including a chili dinner Friday evening. You will pay for your accommodations directly to the campground or other venue as you choose. Important Note: We must have an accurate as possible head count for food so it is imperative that you RSVP to this Email address if you are going to attend: barmar@mindspring.com.

I've been holding out hope for August but I'm now triple booked that week.  I'll get back to Asheville Sunday afternoon if you are around.

I'm packing the bikes today for an early ride out of WV in the AM for the VA Rally. Deb is on my Vstrom Adventure. I'm taking the Convert? no the G5? maybe the Nuovo Falcone.... Ok guess I'll have coffee and think about it for a moment. Hope everyone has a safe ride and we will see you there. Looks like nice weather.

Yes the Falcone would be fun! My wife riding behind me may have a bit of a boring ride. It keeps plugging along but its slow on the up hills!

Is this weekend, located in the Meadows of Dan, just off the BRP. Kballowe and I will be dropping by to visiting Friday.

I typed "the VA rally" into duckduckgo, and nothing of value came up.  so I took a gamble and added the words "moto guzzi" and suddenly all was clear.

I shoulda known.  Meadows of Dan is a great place!  Should be fun!  Unfortunately, my weekend is booked.

Please post some pictures.
