    Thanks for sharing. Glad you had good weather, the Smokies are some of the most beautiful areas in the U.S.

    Leaving next month from PA to ride down thru VA on Skyline Drive then on to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Looking to ride the Dragon for the first time. Any suggestions as to other runs?

    Thanks in advance,

    We have been to the Dragon. Will go back again in September. Only about 60 miles from Cherokee. We also went through Cades Cove Tennessee. Very nice area, but traffic is very slow in the park. Had to stop several times to keep bike cool.

    I like the Cherohala Skyway better than the Dragon. Longer, more scenic, more relaxing, and a great little coffee/sandwich shop in Tellico Plains at the west end.

    I agree with Dr. Dolittle about Cherohala Skyway. I'm from Knoxville and rode the Dragon once and came back on the skyway and enjoyed it alot better then the Dragon. Make sure you have your camera with you because the scenery is wonderful. Its almost a mile high at the top so make sure you bring your jacket. alot of pull offs to take pics and enjoy the peace and quite.

    Thanks for the pics Patrick. My family and I were in Gatlinburg for the first time last year on vacation and fell in love with Smokey Mountains. Unfortunately not on the bike. I'm looking forward to when we can get back on the bike.
