We're going to be in Townsend Tn. the weekend of Oct. 2 (whatever) and I thought that we might try the Racker Rd. (out of Tellico) ref'd in other threads. Is it dirt? Can this be done on sport/tourer and does it end up at the Skyway out at the Indian Boundry? Not all of us have d/p bikes but everyone is pretty good at making chicken salad out of chickencrap. Any other suggestions for mixed FR/gravel/pavement in that area are requested as long as we (they) get some fast work in). Again, most of this crowd took the old forest rds. on street bikes from the (old) end of 165 into Robbinsville before the skyway was finished on the NC side. Of course, we were stupid but if a late 80's HD low rider custom can make it.....). Again, all suggestions and advice welcome and requested. Thanks.
