Land of Pleasant Living Gets Twisty

canceled

<s>What Riders in & around Baltimore/Maryland/Wherever head south into NC and take down a few named roads.
When April 24th - April 26th. Ish.
Where; We'll start in Bristol, TN, and spend a few days taking down the following roads;
The Snake
The Hellbender
The Rattler
The Devil's Triangle
and of course
The Dragon

Not necessarily in that order.

Why No chicken strips or get back whips
Who current as of 2/22/2015
Yru
Swellsrides
Blaster
Dorito
Glennnnnnn
Dynamick
Desce

maybe
Polish Pie Rider

Here's my tentative plan so far;
Day 1 - Make your best way to Bristol, TN, check into [hotel to be named here, suggestions?]
Day 2, Morning - The Snake and The Rattler
Proposed route
https://goo.gl/maps/fLBB9

Although it's April, some folks have said that there still might be some snow & ice in the northern elevations around Boone. Plan accordingly.

Day 2. Lunch-ish in Waynesville. Suggestions?

Day 2 Afternoon. Waynesville to my brother's place in Franklin.
Proposed route; https://goo.gl/maps/Ogr6u
Camp overnight at his place.
I know it's a short hop from Waynesville to Franklin, even with some twisties thrown in. That's in case we dawdle on the twisties (running them three or four times) or dally over lunch in Waynesville.

Day 3 Morning - Franklin, NC to Oliver Springs, TN. The Dragon!
Proposed route; https://goo.gl/maps/XhQLa
and The Devil's Triangle.
Proposed route;
https://goo.gl/maps/wOyqs

That should take us into the afternoon.

Day 3 Afternoon Oliver Springs, TN - Bristol (back to the same hotel?)
Proposed route - https://goo.gl/maps/zrEnf

Day 4 - Go home. Or whatever.

This is all pretty loosey-goosey, and you're more than welcome to make suggestions, point out errors, etc. I'd like to have everything finalized by the beginning of April. We're going to have a big bunch of bikes with a pretty wide variance in performance, so I think it's unrealistic for us all to stay together. My plan is to designate a few stops & times, and you just make your way there with whomever you like. For instance, we'll pick a restaurant & a time in Waynesville for day 3, and we'll see you there in that time frame. That way you can ride your own pace.

Yes, you can join in*.









* - keep your drama with your mama.

Suggestion for Bristol TN

Ignore the first review, as it was obviously Jax who gave it.

Hey C!

Lots of good thoughts you typed up! Tentatively, I am looking at slabbing home on Sunday PM. It's 6hrs from Bristol (360 miles or so...)

Do we get a certificate, or at least a t-shirt after the completion of this course?

I've got 20 yards of Hello Kitty Duct Tape. I can personalize it with a sharpie. What would you like yours to say?
