What's your favorite road in the Smokies?

Postby Batesvilledon » Mon Jun 27, 2011 7:52 am

I'm planning a trip in about a week to the smokies and will be riding in the Dragon area and staying about 60 miles north of there in Pigeon Forge. Anyone have any suggested must do roads in that area?

be sure to watch out for Bulgarians from Florida in that area. rumor has it they are reckless and agressive riders and tend to be on those roads at that time of the year. Also watch especially close if they are in Buffalo bob full size vans.

The Cherohola is a must. :drool


Seriously, the Cherohola on a weekday is hard to beat. Miles of high speed sweepers with great surface and visability.

http://www.motorcycleroads.com/routes/S ... TN_5.shtml Here ya go. :ok

Watch out for Blount County Deputies and the photographers like Killboy as you round a corner on the Dragon, they will startle you at first.

Mid April is perfect, too soon for tourist season, Sheriff Dept's making their plans for June shakedowns and was a great time with Heather,Todd,Dave,Smiley, Spencer and more. And get the room closest to the highway at the San Ran in Robbinsville. It is twice the size of the other rooms. :biglol

I liked cherohala as well even though it was foggy when I was there. Much less crowded.

Thanks for all the fine advice guys. I'll do my best. It's just going to be a very small group of us track riders that are very slow on the street, so not a big chance of the wrong kind of excitement. I'll tell Nick you sent your greetings. Then I'll send him to the ozarks.

I think that would be the weekend of the 16-17 here in the Ozarks. Maybe it wont be too hot. I doubt I'll come back that early. Might want to stay and check out the Smokies in more detail. As far as waiting up for Nick, its the other way around when I ride with him. I'm the slow guy, but what can I say, I'm old :)
