I would LOVE to go to this event in the Smoky Mountains, if I were not on the opposite coast! Sigh. But report back… Here’s what Christa has to say about it so far, but stay tuned for more developments:
This year will be the biggest Touring Weekend yet, with more tours, the addition of an off-road guided tour, select vendors, seminars by RoadRUNNER editors and vendors, outdoor live music, door prizes, great food, and even vintage motorcycles!
For 2012, we selected Maggie Valley, North Carolina as our home base. To accommodate a steadily growing number of participants, we’re adding an extra day of riding or shopping. An expected 400-500 people with gather on motorcycles ranging from baggers to sport bikes, and standards to adventure bikes. Riders can choose between guided or self-guided tours. During sign up you’ll have the chance to select a specific guided tour, andwe’ll even accommodate requests to ride with others. Tours are around 200 miles, allowing for several stops along the way for taking in the views, eat lunch, and recharge with some coffee or ice-cream.
The Touring Weekend is held in memory of RoadRUNNER’s founder Christian Neuhauser. Each year around July 15th, like-minded motorcyclists meet for a long weekend of riding, seminars, and making new friends. The event has been held at a different location, for the past six years, providing great new scenery and roads to enjoy!
Just announced, the crew from Stayin Safe will conduct a special one-day version of their signature training tour on Thursday, July 12th. This is the third year that Stayin Safe has participated in the Touring Weekend and we’re happy to have them! Read more
