#1

Post by Halfnaked »

Mark your calendars and plan your vacations NOW for the 2016 NGW Eastern Region Run in Slade, KY, some of the most beautiful riding country in the USA.
We will ride in the Natural Bridge and Red River Gorge areas of Kentucky. Eastern Kentucky offers so many beautiful winding roads, limestone cliffs, waterfalls and well groomed roads. 2016 promises to be a real treat for NGW riders.

To get a flavor for the area, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpMbng61DtU

What: 2016 Eastern Region NGW Run
When : September 13-16, 2016
(most will arrive on the 13th and leave on the 16th)
Where: Headquartered at the L’il Abner Motel, 1000 Natural Bridge Road, Slade, KY 40376
Website: http://www.lilabnermotel.com
Motel phone and reservations: 606-663-5384

Cost: Only $10 (includes a pizza dinner and a cookout).Cost is $25, if you want a t-shirt (see registration for details.) Register at: http://www.ngwclub.com/catalog/index.ph ... 2506ad904b as soon as it is available online.


We have negotiated a rate of $60/night (all taxes included) for rooms with two double beds. So if you double up, that is only $30/night, each. Each room has free internet, a refrigerator and a microwave. Cell phone service worked there (AT&T.) Other room combinations are available. See their website for more information. For motel reservations, call 606-663-5384. Tell them you are with “NGW Club” for the special rate.

UPDATE ..... BILLY ABNER SAYS THE POOL WILL BE OPEN WHILE WE ARE THERE!!

Camping is also available about a mile from Li’l Abner Motel at the Whittleton Campground, a part of Natural Bridge State Park. The rate is $15/night. It is in a Kentucky State Park, so they do not allow alcohol. 606-663-2214 for reservations. There are BEARS in this area.
Yes, there are dancing bears in the area!

For those who have arrived by around 6:00PM on Tuesday, we will have a pot of chili for consumption for those who do not want to ride again to find dinner. THIS IS A CHANGE FROM ORIGINAL PLAN. We also have two fun rides planned; one for Wednesday and one for Thursday. Each will be around 100 miles with a lunch stop included. Wednesday’s ride will include a trip through the famous (or infamous) Nada tunnel, a ride through the Red River Gorge, some twisty roads through rock formations, a lunch stop and a stop at a carry-out store. Thursday’s ride is optional and will include many curves, twisties and a lot of scenery. It will also include a lunch stop. The rest of the time will be free time for you to explore the surrounding area, or just sit by the fire and chat with your friends. You may want to plan on spending an extra day or so in the area…there is so much to see.
Yes, we will ride through that tunnel!

Although Powell County is a DRY county, there are carry-out stores within 6 miles of the Motel. The Motel assures us that there are no restrictions on consumption at the motel, inside or outside.
We will have a Hamburger and Bratwurst cook out on Thursday evening at the shelter house with all of the food and drinks (except alcohol) provided. Coffee, donuts and juice will be provided on Wednesday morning at the motel. Coffee only will be provided on Thursday morning.

Everyone is invited. We love to see first time members at these meets. Although Naked Goldwings are the subject, you can ride anything to these events!
Get your reservations into the Headquarters Motel NOW!

See you at the 2016 NGW Eastern Region Ride!
