Nice report.
The Tatham gap road over the snowbird mountain range is a sweet ride.
When you got up to the T in the road (which I think is by that sign) did you follow it up to the lookout tower?

there were two options, right and left - i went left so the tower must be right as i didn't see it. it wasn't really a planned route so i never researched it....wish i'd have known!

WoW! Looking at those great bikes from history was a great way to spend my Sunday morning. I especially love the old Excelsior since it's always been a favorite of mine.

Thanks again for letting us live vicariously through you.

slow lazy day, late start out of Ironhorse Campground headed to Blue Ridge motorcycle campground, straight line probably 60 miles or so, using NC roads lets call it 160!


a little off road over Tellico Plains area



and a few double backs on some paved roads where people have bought land and put gates across stopping forward travel. I met a Volunteer Fireman who told me where i needed to go was blocked and used to be a 8 mile ride, now its more like 30...lots of riding along small rivers elevation changes from 1800 feet to 6400 on the day








someones little piece of heaven in the woods...



at the end of the day i spotted this guy, obviously packing is not his forte and all i can say is "DAM"!
