I rode down to Robbinsville, NC for a motorcycle rally with friends from the bike group, The Chain Gang.
Before I arrived, I took advantage of where I was heading and camped overnight in the Smokey Mountains National Park.
The location for the rally was a beautiful mansion just outside the city. It was plenty big for everyone but I still chose to sleep in my tent outside.
My rides were in some stunningly beautiful areas. I hit a few areas north of Helen, GA like Wolfpen Gap and Suches, GA. I’m familiar with these spots from my time living in Atlanta.
Probably the best ride was a stretch of road from Robbinsville to Tellico Plains, TN. They call it The Cherohala Scenic Skyway. It has lots of nice “twisties” and beautiful scenery.
I did get caught up in some some fog at one of the summits but nothing too bad. It was all part of the view.
I met quite a few good people and had a great time as always. There is already talk about next years event.
