made a tail of the dragon trip in oct.
from augusta we took i-20 to ga22 and picked up us78 to athens. us129 can be picked up on back side of athens. we met a fellow rider at pendergrass flea market and headed for gainesville. we jumped on us 19 and headed for dahlonega. we took ga60 to suches and stopped by two wheels of suches. our plan was blood mountain and head for the dragon, but a fine gentleman on a vintage moto guzzi pulled up and mentioned a even more scenic route. stay on 60 all the way to tellico plains in tennessee(rode turns into hwy 68 in north carolina/tenn.) pick up the cherola skyway and ride east all the way to robbinsville and pick up us129. this puts you 35 miles south of the dragon. the skyway was the hit of the whole ride. it was amazing! we did the dragon a couple of times and stayed overnight at deals gap motorcycle lodge. next day more dragon and headed home on 28(moonshiner hwy)
at franklin we picked up us441 and headed for talluh gorge. after we took ga17 back to augusta.

You should have turned on River road off the skyway and rode up to the waterfall.
