Good rides around TN and KY?

I'll be headed East come May 10th and am looking for some good rides in the Tennessee and Kentucky area. I've only dabbled around Louisville and Lynchburg on business trips, so it really is uncharted territory for me.

Post your recommended routes, favorite food joints, and places to stay.

Thanks all!

Kevin K.

Tail of the Dragon, and I think even better - Cherohala skyway.

The Great Smokys are awesome!

Dragon is over rated IMO

Cherohala much nicer and BRP as well

What part of Ky will you be in? We've ridden in every county but 5 or 6.

It's odd that I have lived in Kentucky for 30 years and haven't been to so many counties.....this year I (we) intend to ride to every county seat and snap a quick pic of every courthouse, just so we can finally say we have been to every county.

Hey that looks like a good ride from here, probably could check off 50 counties just to get there....Is that near where the Locks are at on the river? A long time back I was lost and ended up somewhere in Western KY where there was seems like 3 locks on the river, I watched forever as the barges went through. would like to go there again.

Tracy,

Most likely I would be coming up from Nashville. Unless I decide to hit the Tail of the Dragon... I will most likely only have 2 days to goof around in the region before having to move on to visit family in Iowa.

Here is a link to the Tail of the Dragon website.
It also has information on the other area roads.

http://www.tailofthedragon.com/

The Dragon can be a dangerous place especially on the weekend with the higher volume of traffic.

It has become a tourist destination IMO.

I've been there once during the weekday and enjoyed the hell out of it.

Safe travels to you and yours.
