Be safe and have a great time/ride. The weather looks like it will be comfortable.
Elevation changes will drop temps quick this time of year.

There are several other routes that are must rides very close to Deal's Gap. Try to get several in.

These are just a few that are close.

Red Pepper/Magnetic Grey CVO with KST black 14" apes and a quick detach TP.

Just there the 1st of Sept. As he said other rides definitely worth the ride while there. Cherohala Skyway and Moonshiners for sure. Take plenty of pics and be safe, prolly a lot of leaf peepers this time of year.

+1 on all these roads.........I'll add to be just a bit more cautious this time of year........
They do a GREAT job keeping the Dragon clear, but with the leaves falling and if it's any rain at all, they can get slick..........

Also due to leaves changing, may be more "Leaf Peepers" than normal....Watch out for them especially near pull-offs........they'll cut you off in heartbeat to stop for that "Perfect Picture"............. Ride safe & have fun!!
