Agreed. There isn't a bad road anywhere in that area. I've been down there five times now since '07 and plan to go back this season.
Are you on the CVO forum? They have a get together down there every year in Maggie Valley during Sept.I live about 10 miles west of the Dragon and still enjoy the hell out of it.
But just about all the roads around here and NC and down into the Blue Ridge of GA are a blast to ride.
Yes that 550 was something!! We also really enjoyed the 92 south bound. Your State is an awesome place in general. We wished we had more time to spend there.Very nice. Mrs Shemp and I were there late May/Early June. Not a bad road to be found. Saw you also posted a vid riding the Million Dollar Highway (co550) one of the many great rides we have here in Colorado.
