It looks like second to KLRs........are the VStroms! So we should have plenty of mild rides for those looking for some great FS roads and twisty pavement!!!!!
I will lead rides every day.........it will look like this:
Thursday___Early Bird Ride
____10am & 2pm___2.5
Sunday_____Dead End Tour
TellicoTim and I will be riding together on the early bird, but I believe he has plans to lead a ride on Friday and possibly Sat.
Tagalong normally leads, so he may be available if needed.
I believe Steve could lead a milder ride of VStroms/KLRs........also, woodsatyr said that she can lead some, too!
There is no shortage of riding for anyone...........so grab a friend and let's ride!!!!
There are a bunch of you out there that normally makes this ride.......where are my friends???? Hope to see ya there!
Weather is looking GREAT!!!! and with the rain coming in earlier in the week......this could be epic riding!

DS Sightseeing Tour - If you have always wanted to check out some of the big names of touring in the south, check out these: Cades Cove, Deals Gap, Parson's Branch, Cherohala Skyway, & Foothills Parkway - 1.5
Scenic Overlook Tour - I've put together some great overlooks for you on this ride. Personally, I've never seen them all in a single day, so, you'll be one of the elite. - 2.0
Cherohala DS Ride - This is a very popular ride for us locals. You get 1/2 pavement, 1/2 dirt across/thru the beautiful mtns. between Tellico Plains and Robbinsville - 1.5
Historic Gap Tour - On this tour, you will be crossing over 3 major historic gaps: Unicoi, Tatham, and Stratton. Great ride and sweet roads! - 1.5
Local Living Ride - Wanna see some cool local spots and roads. Well, this is a ride that does just that and where you're never more than 20 minutes from camp. - 1.5
Hiwassee Haven Run - This ride consists of several of my favorite roads/trails in the Hiwassee area. Good for riders wanting to ease up the terrain rating scale. - 3
Cuhutta Wilderness Run - This is one of the first routes I ever took when I moved to this area. These are some great FS roads, with a very nice suprise awaiting you at Patterson's Gap. Can you say, 'Yee Ha'? - 2.5
Fires Creek WMA Tour - I know WMA normally stands for 'Wildlife Management Area', but in this case it really should stand for 'Wonderful Motorcycle Adventure'!!! And on the way back, have an awesome time on the Joe Brown Highway...... with it's little side adventure! - 2.0 (Top of Big Stamp - 2.5)
.....Tour begins heading south on Hwy 68.
Note: Bald River Falls
is listed on just a few of these rides, but due to it's location and high scenic factor, it can be added into just about any Ride. (N35 19 27.44, W84 10 37.29) Also, FS61 (not on my software, but around N35 19 35.56, W84 2 27.04) will take you to Whigg Meadow
