Will not be able to meet you. If you want the ride of your like go south of Asheville on US 74 and then that US 129 west. US 129 is called the Tail of the Dragon, It is an 11 miles streach with 320 curves. It is a motorcycles dream or nigthmare.

See the youtube video

Thanks for the reply. I have been in that area a few times. There are some amazing roads in the hills around there. I was looking for someone that might want to enjoy some of them with me.

If I lived in the area and not on the other end of the state I would join you, the wife said she would not do it again, too many sharp curves. Did the Tail of the Dragon about a two years ago and about 8 months ago did a road across and around Grandfather Mountain late evening in a light rain. That really did it for her.

I was trying to avoid the weekend, to many tourists/cars/bikes/cops. My preference would be March 31 - April 1 (Thursday & Friday). Depending on other people's interest, I might be willing to hang around until the 3rd
