I know those roads out of Brevard. Some of the best in the country except speed limit is kind of low near slippery rock. I like a parallel dirt road (perfect for the KLR) next to 215. I think it is called headwaters road / NF475B and Government Rd 475. At least the knobbies are off the pavement! Of course I ride it a bit slower due to the gravel and not wanting to crash when no one else is around. Still it is quite interesting / challenging even at the lower speeds I ride.
I haven't read Proficient Motorcycling...yet... I think there may have been some ice in that corner where I low sided.
