It's a great way to get warmed up for your first run up the hill.
Going to stay at Fontana Village June 6,7,8 for the FZ1 rally.

NC28 from Franklin, NC to Deals Gap is a total blast. Wayah Rd is really fun too but the road surface could be better.
A friend of mine just moved down in that area: Murphy NC.

If you follow 74/19/129 south you'll run into it. Gonna try to make it down to see him sometime this season.

Murphy is a fun area. Some great back roads too.

In 2010, I lived in Augusta, GA for six months, which is where 28 starts. One weekend I rode the whole length of it and have to say it starts getting good in Walhalla, SC.

Has anyone here used the Olympia horizon pants or jacket? They seem to have everything I'm after in rain gear.

No, but it was just down the road from there. This is the high point, Campbell Hill. Not much of a view there, considering it's surrounded by buildings.
