you could spend two weeks down there and just hit the tip of the iceberg.

reality has set in on my extended summer vacation, I definitely had a blast
meeting all the other dragon riders down there a couple weeks ago.

Yep, Love the Smokies! Feel blessed I live close enough to enjoy them fairly regularly. Pics from a couple weeks ago @ TOTD - first time for the wifey.

Coming... & Going.

Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

Has not been back in 30 years. Last year we stayed in Gatlinburg for two weeks rode out everyday in different direction.
May was a great time to be there we had such a great ride we are going back this year staying at Cashiers NC .
Every road we took was a great ride.

Those are awsome shots, how did you get them. Did you have a buddy sit on the side and take the pics. Those are cool!

Check out www.moonshinephoto.com. They and several other professional photography companies set up at strategic locations on the dragon daily and shoot film all day. When you ride it, remember the date & approximate time and go to the websites, select type of bike: cruisers, touring 2 up, etc. and look for your pics. They are for purchase in several forms. Digital download is around $5 to $7 per print. Pretty lucrative business as they shoot hundreds a day. The other companies' links are listed on moonshine's website.

TN,NC, GA here we come

We are headed down on Oct 12th from CT. This will be my 3rd year going and it never gets old. First year on the new Glide so can't wait. We have gone in April, June and now Oct. Our hopes is to do some high elevation leaf peeping. Doing the highway shot from CT to Pigon Forge and on the way home the entire BRP and Skyline Dr. (Hoping this year no real construction or rock slides).

Last year we found some fantastic twists off the BRP in Little Switzerland and another road I see they names Devils Whip (Rt 80)

Ok the wait is killing me as it always does.

Frank

Ride for the future as it may be closer then you think.

If you are able to make it to Maggie Valley, take the time to go to Wheels Thru Time. Awsome place. If you really like motorcycles, you'll love this!
