An adventure bike or dual sport really is the best thing for exploring that area however, when I ride my dual sport bikes in that NC I usually end up bringing them up in the truck. You have mentioned on getting a smaller dual sport. Are you planning on riding it down from Ohio?
Yes it was a fun trip. Been touring down there since '95 and still find plenty to see and do that's new to me.
Not sure that I would ride a smaller ds bike down and back, but I have definitely not ruled it out. It would depend on what I end up with in regards to gearing, liquid cooled, durability. I've considered unbolting the cargo carrier from my trailer and hauling a ds behind the wing.
