Came back yesterday night...
Thanks again for the suggestions, the motel was interesting to say the least. Roads were awesome (i have tons of footage i need to check). I did the Dragon 7 times in all, the Moonshiner twice, zipped on the Cherohala skyway and enjoyed a few smaller streets around.
Met a member at the 'Gap with his S10, pretty sure it was wera688? Sorry bad memory!
Everyone i spoke to was nice and helpful, as usual
Wish i could have stayed longer, there's plenty to ride in the area still.
