It isn't a secret. I've posted it here a few times before. My cell is (615) 417-8898.PM me with your phone number if you like and if I do get close to Nashville I'll give you a ring.
I sort of guessed you had been over the Cherohala and Dragon before but figured I'd mention them anyway.Since I live in NC. and have traveled up and down the Dragon and over the Cheroholla several times I'll probably not go there.
A couple of other local riders may be going along with me now or they may hook up with me after Barber.
I love going there and still miss racing so I get a chance to hook up with a few "OLD" farts dragging parts, as my wife refers to us. I find that most people are really not that much into Vintage Racing unless they actually have some kind of a connection through their past.
I know the feeling. I'm heading out on 9/13 for a 2,000 mile trip on my VFR and I keep asking myself whether or not I can do 300-400 miles for several days in a row. I guess I'll know the answer to that one in a couple of weeks I did 600 miles in a day on it a couple of months ago and had a bit more in me so I'm pretty sure I can.I keep looking at maps trying to find a decent way to get over to Barber from Lewisville that does not entail endless mind numbing hours on the interstate. Each time I think I've got it figured out , then I look at the additional mileage/time involved and I just go the boring way. I'm at the point where anything much over 400 miles in a day just flat wears my old bones out.
Crikey , I'm actually starting to think I should either hang up my helmet or get something I can carry or tow a bike with. I never thought I would actually verbalise that thought. LOL
