The WIDE OPEN THROTTLE fest in Laurel Springs, NC was such a big hit the first time around, we're gonna do it again. You should know however, thanks to Hurd, that it will likely be referred to as TWOT fest from here on out. :)

You can read about last years event and see pics starting on page 63 of this thread. http://www.rswarrior.com/forums/32-motorcycle-events/168224-warriors-wide-open-throttle-fest-spring-2011-laurel-springs-nc-63.html and also here http://www.rswarrior.com/forums/10-warrior-pics-vids/171986-twot-fest-2011-pics.html.

Those that attended the first one can attest to the fact that there are ALOT of great roads in this area. I'm sure we've only ridden a few of them but it was so much fun that I could ride all the same roads again in 2012 and still have a blast. Freebornes Eatery and Lodge will serve as our base camp and departure destination each day. Tent camping is available behind the hotel and there are showers available. In additon to rooms the hotel also has a house for rent across the road as well and two small cottages. Freebornes has a full service restaurant that serves a great breakfast and a bar which serves food and a large selection of beers. The town of Sparta is a short ride down the road and has a grocery store, gas stations etc... should you need to do some shopping while there. Some of the guys/gals found a house for rent on their own and got a really sweet deal. You're on your own if you want to do that.

We enjoyed rides in and around the local area as well as day trips to the Back of the Dragon in VA, the Snake in TN and parts of the Blue Ridge Parkway. This coming year we plan to make those same trips as well as a trip to a new area Dwight and I checked out on a recent BRP end to end ride. It's in the Little Switzerland area and is known as the Diamondback! It's another excellent road for motorcycling. You won't be disappointed! :D

The rides are one reason we come here. Hanging out in the evenings with old friends and making new ones is the other. We usually have several cookouts and there's always something cold to wash it down with. BYOB is encouraged. No one person is responsible for you or your vacation. We don't have a rigid schedule of rides or events so no need to ask. Basically, you show up whenever you want and ride with whoever you want. The next days plans are usually discussed the night before around a fire with beer in hand. If you like what you hear and want to tag along, you're more than welcome. It doesn't hurt to ask what type of riding the group will be doing. There are fast riders, faster riders and then there's...well the guys who actually ride slow enough to see the area. LOL. :D I'm not kidding when I say fast either. If you end up in this group, make sure you have a GPS so you can find your way back to base camp. We could be miles down the road before we stop and realize you're not with the group and cell phone coverage in alot of areas is spotty at best. Someone always has a trailer and we have on more than one ocassion ridden back to the hotel to get it and come back in order to get a broken down rider back to the camp safely. This time wont' be any different. ;)

If you're trailering down or up and have tools or spare parts (belts, motorcycle jack etc...) bring them and anything else you think someone might need should they break down or have an accident. Someone almost always needs something fixed and we've got a few gearheads that don't mind wrenching to help out a fellow rider. Make sure you have a new set of tires or bring spares with you. This ain't south Florida. We've got curves here and alot of them. It's highly likely if your tires are not new or nearly new you will end up having to buy a set while here (if you can find them) or cut your trip short. We wouldn't want that to happen. :eek:

If you plan to attend, post up in your status and I'll try to keep an updated list here. It helps to put the dates you plan to show up so we know when to look for you.

That's it for now. See you there! :D
