Dragon/Cherohala Skyway - June 25, 2007, 11:18 AM

IS ALL I CAN SAY!!!

WOW...........
Ok so I have every other Friday off, and this past friday was my day off.....6/22 for those that dont want to look at the calendar. Anyways, I get up at 9...and decide to fall back to sleep, so i finally roll out fo bed at 10..... I head over to the bike and gear up......I go through town and hit up route 95 which is on the backside of town, and goes through the government facility. very nice twisties in there.

So I go through 95 and head down 321 towards maryville and then onto Route 129.

For those that dont know 129 is deals gap....but it starts off of 411 near Maryville...so you have to go about 15 or so miles before you actually reach the start of the Dragon.

Anyways, so I get onto 129 and get behind a whole slew of Goldwings...., I finally get a chance and pass them.....as I start to get into the flow of things, I get behind a group of the slowest motard riders I have ever ever ever ever seen. I went through a few corners in first gear cause of them. Anyways, I finally get by them and I take off, I got about 5 miles of free open road at this point....and let her rip.....I finally reach the Dragon and start up the mountain.......as I come around the corner I see a 600RR turning around right in my path.. So I get on the brakes...let him go and he takes off....so i go to keep up with him and he is just checking out on me, like RRonin does on gangsta rides

Anyways, I reach the mid-way point and stop to look at the scenary....AWESOME VIEW.

I start up again and head towards the Dragon Store and NC. Well I get stuck behind another group of Goldwings and some other slow riders. Not to mention I have a guy behind me on a ZX-12 thats ebing held up too.....so we both pull off and start bullshittin'.......come to find out he is on his way to Florida with another big group of goldwings and cruisers. As we are BSing...his group that he is with goes by us and he tells me he will do what he cant o keep up with me....so I get a big smile and start off....DISTURBED COMES ON THE IPOD.....here we go....I left him in about 3 turns and never saw him again.

Anyways, I reach the store, and its PACKED. So I grab a bite to eat, and finally met the guy on the 600RR and his buddies. I ask them where they are from in MD (by they way they had MD tags ) and they say Fredrick, near the infamous RRONIN and Mrs. RRONIN...................anyways, I tell them about DCSB.net so hopefully they will sign up....if so JEFF, STEVE and PATRICK nice to meet u fellas.

So after about 30 minutea of BSing...i tell them i am heading to the Cherohala Skyway, even though i have never been on it. So they decide to go with, cause the Dragon was crowded as hell.......it was so crowded that even with other slower bikers allowing you to pass, it was still slow.

So we head down 129 further into NC, and came too NC-143/Cherohala Skyway....got on there, and my first thought was THIS SUCKS....the roads were bumpy and patched all over....well come to find out we were still 10 miles from the start. So we finally see the sign for the Skyway, and it was on................WOW WOW WOW....I love this road better than any other road I have ever been on EVER!!!!

Approximately 30 miles of just twisties and smooth flowing transitions.......we averaged..XX mph.... NOT SAYING..you have to go on it to find out.

As we came around one corner, there were 2 NC state Popo on the side which had some bikers stopped. and were our faces.....THEY WERE BSing.....we waved, and continued railing ...... Most of the cops out there, dont mess with the bikers, because Deals Gap and the surrounding areas brings in alot of revenue for that area.

The nice thing about that area too, is that even though you may get stuck behind a slower group of bikers, very very shortly after that, they will wave you by to pass and no one gets upset, cause we all have the same purpose out there...RIDING!!!


All in all, the guys I rode with were great STEVE, PATRICK and JEFF....and my hats off to Jeff....GAT DAYUM is that guy fast VROOOM VROOOM.

Those of you coming down, hit me up....lets do the damn thang!!


RIP...Karl Michael "Dragula" Meckenberg WE MISS YOU BUDDY!!!

You have some of the best roads at your door step. I go down there every year and never come back disappointed. Next time turn left at the store and follow 28 down to GA.

We normally stay over in Hot Springs, NC. Getting out of the town involve a 25 miles of nasty decreasing radius turns. After riding 4 or 5 hundred miles during the day staring RT209 down tp get back to town.......

You've had months now to get those roads down so I don't want to hear any excuses.
