Tennessee / North Carolina trip

Im planning on visiting my best friend out in Nashville in June of this year, will be arriving there on a Wednesday and ride out in the mountains all day either Thursday or Friday, weather permitting. Main roads of interest are Cherohala Skyway, Tail of the Dragon, and 441 out from Gatlinburg if time allows. Just wondering if anyone plans on riding out there during this time, if so then we should meet up

In June a Friday at Deals Gap will have a lot of traffic and plenty of law enforcement.

Everyday for TOTD is bad. I was there mid week, off season, school in session, non holiday and still too crowded for me. The other roads you listed will be fine non weekend though. Those are much better roads and more fun anyway IMO.

yeah the plan is to hit Cherohala Skyway eastbound out from Tellico Plains first, TOTD going north, then hit 441 south, turn around and hit it again going north, stop at Gatlinburg, TOTD going south, Cherohala Skyway going west back to Tellico Plains if we decide to trailer out there from Nashville. if not, we might just make our way into Knoxville after Gatlinburg or after all this, maybe even stay the night

Have fun, its a blast. I rode it alone in November and while I can say the roads were not too crowded that time of the year I can hardly recommend it that late in the year. I'm sure it will be nice in June.

It's a long shot, but would anyone here be interested in riding Tail of the Dragon / Deals Gap the second week of August? It was so good the first time last month that I would plan on going again, the 17-hour drive is worth it

I had considered going this fall, but time and budget aren't cooperating.

Make sure and hit NC28 south from the Dragon store... great road.
