Grouchy much?

I was up there on Saturday with my girlfriend. We rode from Athens to Tellico Plains, across the Skyway and into Robbinsville. WAY too much traffic around the Dragon so we skipped that and rode to Cherokee and then on to Mt. Mitchell. Then back into Asheville for dinner and down to Franklin, NC for the night. There are so many better roads than the Dragon, if you'd just venture out and do a little wandering.

It was cold and rainy most of the day.

Oh, and I hate trikes.

You really don't know much about this part of the country.

MiniMike does a hell of a lot for the ADV community and dual sporting in general.

He has cleaned trails, given help and has an awesome store in Tellico Plains.

I'll make it a point to drop by for a visit when I'm up there during the off season.

Beautiful cool, foggy weather for a ride, I see.

Minimike is the real deal.

Yea, any monkey can ride a 4 lane in 75 degree weather.

Crowds will be thinning with the weather and we can get back to normal...

Anyone with local knowledge translate that for? Trying to figure out where they are.
Ghost Town Harley-Davidson is a Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealership located at 82 Locust Drive, Waynesville, NC.

could be US 74 Smokey Mt Expressway or US 276 or the BRP or lots of other roads

Don't worry, tedder would never say that to anyone's face--he's much too big of a pussy for that. He only makes snide comments about other people behind their backs.

And yes, tedder, I would love the opportunity to say that to you in person, not behind your back where you couldn't hear it.

Yep, I've noticed that the "decent" weather can really thin out the Squids and the Squirrels.

The parking lot at Deal's looks outright comfortable.

I had a chance to ride the Dragon last Friday. But, thanks in no small part to this thread, we ended up close by but with equally awesome (or better) roads all to ourselves. No cars, no bikes, no trucks, no cops and no photographers. Just warm weather, crystal blue skies and spectacular roads all to ourselves.

So to everybody flocking there and leaving the rest of the state open, I just want to say thanks.
