Just got back from Cherohala and Dragon

I just got back from riding The Dragon, Cherohala Skyway, and the surrounding areas of Tennessee and North Carolina. Easily the best ride I've experienced. Unfortunately one of our group wrote off his bike on Cherohala and sustained fairly serious injuries. A wood gauardrail saved him from a 5100 foot freefall but left him with broken ribs, shoulder, collarbone, concussion, etc. Even with that clous looming over us it was the best ride of my life and should not be missed.

The west is best in my opinion. Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada. Any state with lots of BLM land and mountains . The right coast is way too populated for me.

I can say for sure, the Alaska Highway is not a ten best road. It is very straight and boring.

Yep

Those all sound good. No need for anyone to come to Arkansas to do any riding. Nope, no reason at all. Nuthin here but gravel and inbreds. Ya'll stay there.
