five other biker and i rode 1,358 mile Columbus OH - Helen GA loop by way of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherohala skyway and, Tail of the Dragon.. what can i say except those mc roads were awesome. in addition, Helen GA was a biker friendly town and, really knew how to party. i got into it with a ST1300 while on the cherohala. i would pass him then, he would pass me back. then after a few miles, we were both surprised when a yamaha 250cc morphous scooter passed us both in the tight twisties. LOL..
