Subject: 2020 NGW Eastern Region ride -- Sept. 15-17, 2020
Mark your calendars and plan your vacations NOW for the 2020 NGW Eastern Region ride
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. 2020 promises to be a real treat for NGW riders.
It’s been four (4) years since we had the NGW Eastern Meet at Slade, KY. Everyone seemed to enjoy it so much that we are going to have it there again. We will vary the rides a little, but the scenery is still spectacular and the hotel is great!

We have negotiated a rate of $60/night
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. Other room combinations are available. See their website for more information.
Camping is also available about a mile from Li’l Abner Motel at the Whittleton Campground, a part of Natural Bridge State Park. It is in a Kentucky State Park, so they do not allow alcohol. 606-663-2214 for reservations. There are BEARS in this area.
For those who have arrived by around 6:00PM on Tuesday, we plan to have a bowl of chili so you don’t have to get back on your bike. 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, and a lunch stop. Thursday’s ride will include many curves, twisties and a lot of scenery. 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.
Powell County is NO LONGER a dry county, and there is a carry-out store next door according to Bill Abner. 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 will be provided on Wednesday and Thursday mornings at the motel.
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 2020 NGW Eastern Region Ride!
