I know some of you may have not ever visited the ROTR section of the forum. For the last 12 years we have had a group ride on and around the Blue Ridge Parkway in southwest VA and NC. Hence the name, Ride On The Ridge. This will be the 13th year. This ride is open to anyone who wants to come plus friends and family. We usually met up on a Weds evening, all stay at the same hotel or a nearby hotel or campground. Most people go home Sunday morning but you can come for as long or as short as you wish. We ride a nice twisty route during the day, stop for lunch, ride some more, get together and eat in the evening, then enjoy some adult beverages while hanging out and tellin' lies. The ride is at a pretty good pace for guys at the front of the pack, and more civilized for those of us at the rear. The routes are fun, usually around 200ish miles a day through beautiful country and fun roads. We stop at intersections and make sure everyone is together. We've never lost anyone. It's a pretty loosely organized event. The only rules we have are, don't act stupid, be safe, and have a good time. A good time is always had by everyone and the folks on this forum have all been pretty cool to meet.

This year we'll be staying at the Best Western Mountain View Inn in Maggie Valley, NC. The "official" rides will be Thurs, Fri, and Sat. The 15th, 16th, and 17th.

In the past we've had as many as 20 riders and as little as 6. We've had all kinds of bikes too. Anything from ZX10s to Kawasaki W650s to a ZRX Trike to power cruisers to Night Hawk 250s. So ride whatever you want.


Check out the previous years rides in the ROTR section of the forum.

Hope to see some new faces this year,

Hey Jay, have you written up a comparison of the ninja 1000 to the modified zzr you were riding? That would be an interesting read. Have you had it to the dragon yet?
