    Definitely worth checking out.

    I have had problems with scheduling and website connection. REALLY WANT to meet you guys. If I come late and stay til Tuesday will anyone be around to ride with? I cannot leave here (7 hours away) until Saturday. I'm a newbie to this run and a little nervous about doing it alone. I have street tires, so will likely stay clear of dirt/gravel roads.

    If you are staying on pavement then nothing to be concerned about if you ride your own ride. Dragon is 11 intense miles but just a series of turns on a slight grade. Wait until Monday to ride it so it won't be busy. Lots of fun roads. For my money 28 from campground to deals gap is a more fun ride than dragon. Make sure you ride the Cherohala to Tellico Plains. A circle to Franklin with Wayah road one way and 28 the other is great. All good paved roads, just watch for gravel on the road from trailer getting off pavement in turns or washed off side roads in rain.

    PS. Noticed the locations in your info. 20-25 years ago I spent a lot of time in the area traveling from Arkansas for working Weyerhaeuser sawmills.

    Thanks Fuzzy. I hope there are others that will be around and want to do those runs. Plus, I have only seen one NC700X that wasn't mine.
