I have agreed to a buy and ride for a WR250R located in Springfield, Mo. My final destination is Raleigh, NC. I fly in to get the bike Friday, June 25th. I hope to get home in 3 days and I will be camping. I think I will cross over the Mississippi river into Tenn at the Dorena ferry. This will be in the NW corner of Tenn. My question is: Q1. What is a good way to get through Tennessee? I am looking for something fun to ride or especially scenic. Should I cross into N. Carolina near the Tail of the Dragon? I have never done the Tail (of the dragon that is). Q2. Any good routes back thru NC to Raleigh? Thanks.
