I am interested in this Rally because I like to camp on my motorcycle and haven't spent much time in NE Tennessee. The area sounds great. (I also like beer, the darker the better) ;-)
My question is this: Will the rides be too technical for me or are there some easier rides with mixed pavement & dirt roads?
You'll be good. There will be a lot of people / rides (including me) that stick to pavement and tame gravel.
