Traveling through St Luis on your way to the RA Rally?

I'm looking to have a Husqvarna dirt bike transported from Gateway BMW in St Louis east toward the Charlotte area. Are you traveling through St Luis on your way to RA rally and have space in your trailer or truck bed? Can you transport a dirt bike to Asheville? Please let me know if you can help.


Parking in the city of Asheville

Mon, 2013-05-27 06:03 -- beemrebutt

Welcome to our beautiful city. However, just a warning about parking in the city of Asheville and in the parking garages. Asheville is not a parking friendly city. If you park in any of the areas marked with diagonal lines that are not "official" parking spots in any of the parking garages you will be ticketed. It took them about 10 minutes after I had left my bike and walked to work to hit me with a $10 fine when I tried to save them a parking spot for a four wheeled vehicle.


Rental Bikes

We plan on being at the rally with some lighter bikes for those of you that may want to try your hand riding the Adventure Track at the rally as well as riding some of the fantastic Dual Sport routes in the area. Also can bring some bigger bikes such as a 1200GS, Yamaha Super Tenere, and a Triumph Tiger 800 if there is a demand.
Or if your limited on time, fly into the Knoxville, TN airport and we'll pick you up and enjoy a fantastic ride to the Biltmore through some great roads.
Call us at 865-448-6090 for more info.


Pet friendly?

If we come, wife might join in self-propelled "hind car," & would prefer to bring dog. I can't find a rally policy on pets on the web site. The Biltmore site states that the grounds are pet friendly & even references some self-service kennels that can be used on a space available basis while touring the mansion. Thanks!

Looking for riding buddies: NYC to Biltmore

You've seen my OTL Cafe Racer Project bike in recent issues of OTL Magazine... My Café bike is being built to ride! She's no trailer queen. But I have nobody to ride with on the 750 mile journey from Long Island to the Rally. If you live in my area and you want to make your ride far more entertaining than you can imagine, now's your chance to ride with a true celebrity. With a back-ache. And bugs in his teeth. Send me a PM or post here!

So I was having a difficult time warping my head around the illustrated maps so I dug in and put all the present data into a Google map.

You can download the KML file [URL=""]HERE[/URL]
