Just want to say that I spent last week in Cherokee N.C. and was very amazed at the courtesy that the locals had for me on my bike. They didn't try to "crowd" me out on the road and kept a good space between me and them. This was a complete change from what I am accustomed to here in Ga. Even when riding in the mountains I noticed that the people in other vehicles were considerate enough to allow me extra "maneuvering room". Something else that stood out was the signs which actually welcomed bikers to the reservation and town. I have listened to other riders talk of places that exist where people are considerate of bikers but to actually experience such was an eye opener. The reservation police were very polite and did not seem to have a bad attitude toward bike riders. Very different from what I am used to.
