Looks like we'll (me and GF) will be checking in to the two wheel inn Thursday afternoon. Hoping to get several runs on the dragon and Cherohala in before we leave Saturday. If anyone is going to be in the area doing the same thing let me know. We can get together for beer and beef as well as riding.

Just do the Dragon EARLY as the LEO will be out in force during normal hours (9 AM or later)..although last weekend I did the "Loop" Cherohala Skyway and over to the Dragon and didn't see the first LEO until I was down by Chilhowee lake...Then there were 3 a TN State trooper and 2 Blount county deputies...

If you want to ride some other lesser known roads shoot me a PM and I'll give you some suggestions...And DON'T over ride your skills on the Dragon...

I'm much more worried about idiots than LEOs.

Hey now, some of my best friends resemble that remark...

Again, there weren't that many idiots out either. I didn't have a single crotch rocket try to pass or anything while I was on the Dragon.

Very unusual, but I wasn't doing the speed limit either while I was there...

I've been on some of them. So many roads, so little time.
