First big trip, Deals Gap

had my first real trip on a bike this last weekend.

rode from Central NJ to South west NC for the weekend. was going to make it a 2 day ride but due to work being hectic and a lack of funds could not afford the time or the hotel for a stop over.. so I did the 700+ in a day. (I now really know why people complain about the seat )

met up with a couple of people and sat we rode around hitting up the Cherohala Skyway among other routes and got rained on (HARD) but had fun.

then sunday we rode out to deals gap to hit the tail of the dragon.

monday it was another 700++ miles. (diffrent route home to avoid DC and Baltimore during rush hour)
all told 2024 miles on the trip meter for the weekend.
and one rider that has fallen (more) in love with his bike

Cherohala Skyway

I'm heading down that way soon. Plan to camp at Iron Horse and ride all the curvy roads I can find.

Give Hunts Moto Lodge a shot "great folks", that is my go to place down there. Ironhorse is very nice, but I much prefer staying in Tellico Plains away from all the traffic and tourists.
