Ride suggestions for Asheville N.C

Looks like work has screwed my plans for 2 week trip out west so I'm going to ride to Asheville for the whole week of the July fourth. I know there are great roads all over but I'm looking for the ones less traveled. Going to stay Monday night in Dalton GA and ride the roads there then on to Asheville till that Sat.
Any suggestions for roads and restaurants would be appreciated.

Well the reason I chose Asheville was because I was invited to come stay at the Biltmore Inn for a week at no cost.(met the GM at a JD Powers conference last fall). But sounds like a place to drop in and meet up with other bikers. Thanks

I've ridden down there a lot, of course you have the dragon but it's always packed, Foothills Parkway is a good ride, Cherohala parkway, HWY 321 / 360, Moonshiners isn't bad (Rte 28)

BEEEER!!!!!!!!!!

Went by Asheville Harley Davidson earlier today. Very impressed, they had at least 8 brand new road glides on the show room floor. Never seen that before.

Definitely check out NC (Moonshiner)28. My favorite stretch is the southern leg south into Franklin, NC. ...or north from Franklin if you're riding out of Ga. The Cherohala Skwy is one of my favorites along with TN 360 looping around to the back way into the Tail of the Dragon. So many great roads! We are spending a week up in Maggie Valley beginning this Friday. :-)

Garage
Less than 40 miles up the Blue Ridge Parkway from the Biltmore is Mount Mitchell State park and the highest peak on the east coast, beautiful ride that won't take long but with stops, you'll want to take in the views, you can be there in 1.5-2 hours. Leave there and go back to the Parkway still headed north about 15 or so miles is Highway 80/Buck Creek Road, go south about 12-13 miles for some of the best switchbacks around, very similar to the Dragon. Its known as the "Devils Whip" has its own website: http://www.thedevilnc80.com/

When you get to the bottom, in 35 minutes or so, you can be back at the Biltmore.

Alternate route, continue north past highway 80 & head up to Little Switzerland, another 15 miles or so and ride 226A also known as Diamondback: http://diamondbacknc.com/

You can do all these in less than a day.
