    I plan to take my truck since I am riding my KLX450R in the rally. Thanks for the invite, maybe next time I will take my VStrom 1K.

    Thinking about riding my Husaberg up from the northern Atlanta. Not a highway bike and looking for some good forest service, gravel roads, or scenic country roads along the route southwest to northeast pretty much along the NC/TN border. Any ideas? Google earthed a start but hard to tell exactly what the road is like. Have already done the BRP and it takes too long. Thanks for any ideas!

    When ya'll get lost PM me. I'm headed up from Charlotte probably on Tuesday and since I lived up there for about 9 years I think I know about every goat trail/hiking path in the area.

    So I'm heading over on thursday from Raleigh, anyone else trailering along the route?
    Want to conserve a tow vehicle since parking is limited up there?
    (And I'm not riding my KTM xcf from Raleigh) :rofl

    Just head for the top of a hill. :D


    p.s. Verizon coverage is pretty good across the area, AT&T only works inside a few select towns.....others?

    Looks like an awesome ride, it's all paved? Just wondering because I'm riding up with a street bike.

    11 of the last 12 miles are dirt/gravel. The alternative staying on pavement is to just follow the 19E around to Hampton like THIS google says it adds 7 miles but saves 7 minutes. :D

    T-mobile SUX in that area (where NC, TN, KY, VA, and WV all come together).

    Plan on using smoke signals. :D
