Maggie Valley, NC

Kettlinton, oldtraf, Biker Pop and I are just coming out of a gift shop late Saturday afternoon on Rte 19 in Maggie Valley, NC when we see a C50 ride by. The rider sees our bikes, turns around and comes back to check us out. It turns out the other rider is c50tnc who lives a few miles away and was out running an errand.

Ended up having about an hour chat. Great guy. Good with a wrench - you should see what he was able to do with a HD fairing.

I hope his wife knows how running errands on a bike can take longer than normal.

Anyway, thanks for stopping, tnc. It was a pleasure to meet you.

Also like to say thanks to Biker Pop for showing us around the area. They were some nice mountain roads you showed us Pop. I was really shocked when I saw your goats . I'd also advise anyone to stay at the Applecover Inn. Beautiful part of the country.

Since the 50's I've been through western NC, including
Maggie Valley. Everybody should take US 64 between
Franklin, NC and Highlands, NC. There isn't a more beautiful
hour drive in all of the USA. You won't forget it.

Two stops should include Wedding Veil Falls and Hidden
Falls. If you're traveling with a lady love you'll need extra
cash for Highlands. Make that a lot of extra cash.

Thanks for the suggestion ... I have a feeling I'll be back in that area again.

I've never ridden a bike through Maggie Valley but have
driven through it many, many times over the past 50+
years. MV is absolutely gorgeous. I remember when the
gift shops were almost new.
