    Did the ride a year ago, and had fun, just ride at your speed, and watch for some of the sport bikes passing in the wrong place, don't forget to ride the Sky-way also.

    Was there about a year ago, had a BLAST! But yes ride your own ride, many crotch-rockets willing to pass! Keep your eyes WIDE open! Also many other GREAT rides, Skyline is VERY beautiful, longer and many places to stop & talk and take pictures! Be sure to stop @ Smoky Mountain HD. Friendly people and willing to give you current tips! ENJOY! Wish I was going with!

    Thanks for the tips and advice, already logged on to you tube and saw what can happen if you're not paying attention. My mouth is already watering with the food suggestions. Have no problem with being passed by other bikes, ran into alot of that while at Sturgis on needles hiway.
