If anyone is interested...I would be willing to volunteer my truck and trailer to haul down some bikes for a group trip to TN. I will be in Papua New Guinea for May and June volunteering at a Hospital but when I get back I want to go back down to TN.

Not dreaming, planning. Probably won't go all the way to Deal's Gap though.

I made it down to that area twice last year. I hope to make it at least once this year. Its a blast, and there are tons of nice roads near the gap too.

I'd love to go back again. It will probably be a next year deal for me. I do want to head back down to Southern MO and Northern AR. Alot closer and cheaper with some great riding. Just ask anyone who went last year on Paul's ride.


Hey Paul still got all those routes?!?


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Drove down to south-eastern Tennessee for river rafting, my only regret was that I didn't bring a motorcylce. The roads down there are made for it!

Roads winter sucks

good post, im looking for some different destinations if you guys have any info let me know. looking for deals gap type (not the dragon), 28 ,128 towards wheelers,blue ridge and the cherahaula. or spring green (abc) type and minimal law. even though Im doing alot of track, myself and bros still like a good trip from time to time. tennessee will hang you ,NC is alot more tolerant of bikes. I heard colorodo has some really nice stuff. Whats down in mo?? basically my new move is to trailer out(thus avoiding long slabs of interstate with cops tring to pic you off) and getting to a spot then deploying the sleds put on3,4,500 miles and call it a day and either do a weekend or drive home in comfort in the truck. how many times have we all come blasting home after 4-500miles exhausted and unsafe , lol on the slab and get picked off or worse boogie check,LOL!
