SW-V or ???

After great consideration, I am planning to present a bid to bring SW-V to the Mountains of NC. This will wind up being a regional bid as you can ride into 5 states from this area. Details will be developed over this next year so we can present the bid at SW IV.

I am looking for support from any members in the region of NC/SC/Tenn/Northern Ga/Southwest VA.

I have a Location in mind but am not going to say exactly where at this point. This region of the country is within a one or two day ride of most of the country. Great roads, great food, excellent weather, and awesome scenery.

Tim,
I am in for planing this event. We have thousands of miles of the BEST roads in America! The snake, the dragon, Maggie valley, Wheels Through Time, Cherahola Skyway, Blue Ridge Parkway, mountains, waterfalls, lakes, rivers, shopping, great food, and the hospitality will be second to none! This would be the epic shark week experience!

That's the spirit! The more people there are bidding on these events the better they're likely to be. Competition breeds excellence. Wheels Through Time should be on everybody's bucket list if you like American motorcycles. Great museum and great guy, Dale Walksler. Finding lodging big enough on a one year or less notice can be very tricky. I suggested a while back that we should pick SW winners 18-24 months in advance. Our #1 choice in Maine dropped quickly to number 2 after we found out that 2 of their 4 facilities was already booked for 8 weeks (July/August) 13-14 months in advance. You can't start exploring the viable options quick enough from my perspective. Good luck!

I'd support that........Maggie Valley area (and surrounding) is some of the nicest scenery & offers some of the nicest roads known to man! I just finished the 10th anniversary of a ride I host, so I'd be glad to offer assistance in planning & such......

I agree that would be a great area to hold SW. Having a SW 2-consecutive years on the east coast could be an uphill battle though.
