Pretty sure that's Motorfiets (Ben). If it is, that bike has been RTW. There is a thread on the trip, just cant link it on this smarter-than-me phone.

I found the Cherohala to be nice in a gentle sweepers, good view sort of way.

I found Deals gap to be nice in a tight, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 2nd, 1st, 2nd, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 2nd, 3rd, 2nd, 3rd, 3rd, 2nd, 1st gear kind of way.

The Cherohala Skyway is a horrible, horrible road. Flat and straight. Please don't waste your time.







The last thing we need is a bunch of assholes ruining that road too.

Yep. A droning 10 minutes.

Cherohala is the one to ride. Great sweepers, nice elevation changes, unreal views. Just be very careful around the 10mi mark on the NC side, it's a killer.
