    VISION, BABY!
    Went for my usual Sunday ride over the Snake and around my favorite loop.
    Saw a very unusual number of Victory bikes out.
    Talked to several and they rode in for the Victory Motorcycle Rally here in East TN.

    Asked if they were on the Vog....

    ...and they didn't know what it was!

    What's up with that???

    Hope the VMR puts out a little advertising for this excellent group here that have been here since the beginning.

    :)

    Well, to be fair, I didn’t hear about the VMC National Meet 2020.

    sounds like there is still a lack of promotion, just like with Polaris and Victory

    I wish I could have taken the weekend off for the TN meet... Just didn't have the coverage for work.

    I believe they have one in Maggie Valley once a year. My buddy has a vacation home there that he’s considering to be primary. Says I would love the event and the riding there. Amongst other events. GreaT place to retire !

    Also closer to Helen Ga. for the Vic rally there. I can honestly say I’m pretty tired of Florida summers. I would not mind being close to the mountains for 3 to 4 months. My neighbor across the street leaves to go to his mountain cabin in the Carolinas. I can see why although I’ve lived here 40 years of my life as I get older I find the heat and humidity to be disgusting. Thank God I’m in the AC business

    I've been to the one in Helen four times and ride with the same group of guys each year... we have a great time. We don't really do a lot at the rally, maybe check out some bikes and vendors for a little bit, mostly we just go ride 300-400 miles through the twisties, come back to the hotel by dark, and do it again the next day.

    Florida heat would be bad, but to me the worst part would be the lack of hills and twisty roads... going straight and flat gets old for me.

    I've never heard of a Vic Rally in Maggie Valley? There are a few motorcycle rallies... I think Thunder in the Smokies is one of them, actually I think that's coming up soon.

    This website is one you have to look for to find, there is very little to no advertising for it. Before I bought my Gunner I went on and searched for Victory Forums, found the other one, and this one. I prefer this one.

    Nothing about a Victory Rally in Maggie Valley?
    My inlaws used to live there so we have been there many many times and we have a SSR rally there every year too. There are many motorcycke rallies there but not aware of any Victory Rallies. I have a friend there that owns a art gallery and a motel and knows all the events planned and she never heard of a Victory Motorcycle rally in Maggie?

    The Maggie Valley Vic rally is a regional one. Been a couple of times and enjoyed getting together with other Vic folks.
