Word of advice if you are planning on stopping at Loveless' Cafe on highway 100 get there early or be prepared to sit for a while

I ride the Trace out of Nashville all the time, beautiful road. We ran it on sportbikes all the time back in the day, but then the bicyclists kind of took it over and it got a little hairy. but now on the rg I can just cruise those sweepers with not much worries. The biscuits in Loveless are the bizness!

I took a 5 day road trip last month and spent 2 days on the trace. I road it from bottom to top., I have ridden it before but never made it more that 1/2 way either direction before I had to take another route.

Its a 9 hour ride if you don't count breaks, gas, food, wild life...
It could easily be streatched into 2 full days if you look at the sites.

We live close to the trace and ride part of it all the time. Its a stress free ride and makes a good weekend trip. Lots of interesting information along the trace if you take the time to stop and read up on it

The Natchez trace is one of the must rides. Did the N-trace in early spring of '08 on a 10 day ride with six other riders out of north Florida. I was riding my hopped up 2000 Deuce. Timing was deliberate before schools let out. Cool temps, trees in early foleage, flowers in bloom. Lovely.

Entered the N-trace about 30 miles after its SW start. Rode those 30 miles and headed back so we riders could say FWIW "we road every mile of the 500 mile N-trace."

2,500 miles later, and back home, started thinking seriously about an FL. I had ridden an FL from Tulsa to Santa Fe, and another in Hawaii. Then I tried the FLTR and bought it with the long ride in mind.

The Deuce is great for the in-town short ride. Day rides and tours are now on the Road Glide.
