Here's Mike J's tracks from Sylacauga Alabama to Ellijay Georgia that will put you on the Smokey Mountain 500. Can go clockwise or anti clockwise once you get there,,,,,, your choice. Figure about 4 hours to reach Sylacauga from our area and around 4 1/2 hours and 200 miles to get to Ellijay on those tracks that will include some nice riding through the Talladega Forest (600/.500/540 FSR's and 281 Skyway Motorway) and backroads of Alabama and Georgia. Track runs within a couple miles of KTM World in Georgia for those needing orange piece/parts along the way. Do yourself a favor and put the SM500 ride on your to-do list in 2018. Track download for Smokey Mountain 500 is located here: http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/smokey-moluntain-500.926507/ Track that I provided in this post will just give you a interesting trip up to the Smokey Mountain 500 from the PAR direction instead of getting there by the Interstates and going through Atlanta.
