The Dragon, the Cherohala Skyway, Moonshiner 28, and the Diamondback are on my route. Some cheezy names on that list, but I don't care....
take a look at the Killboy Dragon Failure Fest Thread before you do the Dragon. Lots of folks on the wrong side of the road. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=454662

Yes. You know me... I share my toys. Only thing I ask is no skid marks on my italian tile when riding out of my living room.

OMG, I can't believe that is over 1,000 pages. I'm not very happy with the only shots of me on the Dragon--they're weak--so I've got to do better this time. Screw safe riding, my priority is better pictures....I didn't pay for a roadside assistance plan for nothing

Aside from Nov 10th and thanksgiving weekend, I think it's open. However, just thinking outside the box a bit...maybe this would be a nice January activity? Gives us time to fill any empty spots etc..

The only way for better photos is to wear less gear.

January may make it a bit tough on the people from out of town to attend like Hack and Brenda P. if the weather is bad.
