Maggie Valley, NC Report

Recommended Posts

My dad (Honda F6B), uncle (HD Electra Glide), and cousin (BMW R9T) returned last week from a 4 day trip from Ohio to Maggie Valley, NC. About 1500 miles round trip on my 31k mile 2001 5th gen (AMAZING bike). We rode the Tail of the Dragon (of course), visited Wheels Through Time museum, and rode the wheels off our bikes. Great trip, great roads, and a safe time had by all.

Lots of highway time on the way back made me want to upgrade the ol' 5th gen with some helibars, taller screen, and a throttle lock though...

Happy motoring!

PS - you must eat at Butts on the Creek if you stay in Maggie Valley...we found it on the first night and ate there 3 times.

That’s an eclectic group of bikes. Looks like some great scenery and sounds like you ate well. I took my gen 6 out for a 400 mile ride one day and it was just a bit too uncomfortable for me for that many miles in a single day and mine has heli-bars.
