    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. :puke1

    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.

    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. :deal

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

    The parking lot at Deal's looks outright comfortable.

    Mike and his wife at Tellico Motorcycle Outfitters are the nicest people in town. He does a lot for ADV community.

    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. :lol3

    I like Mike! :nod

    If you are traveling some distance to ride these roads, swing by his place as it is likely you'll meet some of the local ADV riders or be able to pick up that thing that you forgot to pack.

    Bumpers came out great. :thumb
