Sounds like it would be a lot of fun. I live in Tennessee, so not too far from where I live. Been through that area a few times, but never on a bike. You can count me in. Keep us posted !!! :)

I talked to Brent a while back, he said we would be more than welcome. Will firm up the dates in March. A group of 8 of us stayed there last month. We rented the bunkhouse and it was a blast. Brent even cooked us a delicious breakfast with fruit, juice, coffee, eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, and fried potatoes. Just the thing for a long day of riding.....Dew.

How far did you ride on the Parkway?  Did you ride from Eastanollee, GA?  Looks like a great time.  What is the weather like this time of year?

I only rode about 30 miles on the Parkway itself from the intersection at route 215 (mile marker 424) to Maggie Valley.  The day's round trip from Eastanollee was about 250 -300 miles but since my speedometer quit the day before I can't be more accurate than that.

The weather yesterday was beautiful and sunny although a little chilly (ice hanging off the rocks in the shady spots) above 5000 feet.  Weather is very hard to predict at this time of year but it is the premium time to see the fall colors.

That sure is a sweet looking bike, what year is it? Did you visit the "Wheels Through Time" motorcycle museum while you were there. It is a must see.....Dew.

Dew,

Thanks for the compliments on the bike.
In answer to your question, Dale on his Crocker.

Krodaddy,

Haven't been checking in much lately - too busy - otherwise I would have answered sooner.  Yes I am still interested, but has anyone heard from Dew lately?  Last I heard he had a heart transplant and was eating lots of beans.

If we don't get together for this trip you and I are close enough to meet up and go riding somewhere, say the gas station at 11 and 178.  Anyone else in the area interested?

I'm still interested in that trip, I'm in middle TN., just NW of Nashville, which is fairly close in my book  :). Any idea on a date yet? Let me know, thanks.

Just been reviewing my work schedule to see when I can get away and it looks damn near impossible.  Someone else pick a weekend and I'll do my best to make it.
