I left on Thursday morning with a friend and we headed to the Smokies via the Interstate roads. We met a friend in Gatlinburg who rode from Greenville, SC. I had an awesome time. We did just a little riding Thursday evening but we did some great riding on Friday. We left from Gatlinburg went through the Smoky Mountain National Park to Cherokee, NC. From there we rode hwy 19 to Rbbinsville to the great Hwy 129. Having only ridden for a year now I was anxious. But I can't imagine a much geater ride. That is one wicked road. It was the first time on 129 for all three of us. I can't wait for the people taking pictures to post them on their websites so I can see myself in action. We did around 300 miles of riding that day. Saturday we took the two lane roads back to Louisville, making for an almost 400 mile day. All together we rode over 930 miles in three days. I know that may not be much to some of you guys but I was pretty proud of my accomplisment. Had a great time and would love to do it again. Also I got lots of compliments from the Harley guys on the X.
This is after the Dragon on 129 beside Chilhowee Lake:

Sounds like you had a good time. If you stop to see the sights that 300 a day on some of the slow roads is enough.

That area has some of the best riding in the county. They just had agathering there.

Although I probably won't make the dragon I'm riding the length of the Blue Ridge and the Cherohala Skyway next month.

From the pics I've seen it's all scenic.
