Club Ride - Sunday, April 28th to Wunderlich USA
Wunderlich America has relocated their California operations to Hendersonville, NC. This weekend, they are hosting an Open House at their new location. I am told there will be refreshments and greetings from Wunderlich staff as we tour their new facility. They have a heads up that we will be showing up there around 11:00. If you are not familiar with Wunderlich, they make lots of aftermarket stuff for BMW Motorrad ( good stuff ). My plan is to leave PROMPTLY, kickstands up, at 8:30 this coming Sunday from the Bojangles on I-40 / Lovell Road exit, where we will motor eastward by interstate ( sorry ) to our destination in Hendersonville, NC. There will be one SHORT stop on the way at the welcome/rest station in North Carolina on I-40E. If anyone from the Newport area would like to join our ride, they can hook up to the convoy as we pass the Newport exit on I-40. Just be waiting until you see us zoom by around 9:15-9:20 ( don’t hold me to that ). After our visit to Wunderlich, we will head back to Asheville where we will enjoy a delicious ( and very expensive ) BRUNCH ( $42 ) at the fabulous Omni Grove Park Inn and Resort. This will help you keep up that “BMW image”. At least the parking is free. They have everything from Apples to Zucchini on this brunch including made to order omelets ( this word is spelled several different ways ) and carving stations. Champagne is included as well. Like they say, cheap food ain’t good and good food ain’t cheap. When you die, you can’t take it with you anyway, so don’t spend all your money at Wunderlich. After brunch, we will head back a much more scenic and curvy route so no one falls asleep after brunch. We will get back home……well, whenever we get there, my guess is 3 hours after lunch. Sooner of course, if you’re from the Newport area. I hope to see everyone there. I currently have brunch reservations for 12 ( a pure guess ), so this time, it would be great to know who plans on attending the ride to firm up that number with GPI. If you plan on coming along, please text me at 865-659-6500 and also tell me if a guest is coming. Give me your name because I won’t recognize your text number, most likely. Kick stands up at 8:30
The officers and club members in conjunction with Jerry and Cindy have decided that we will not be hosting a ROK rally in 2019. The BMW MOA National Meeting is too close in both time and distance. Please check back in early 2020!
