Post GT and drive The Snake? Anybody? Bueller?

Well, Im thinking about having a get together where we drive the Snake. The Snake is a little bit north of the Tail of the Dragon, but is a 33 miles sweeping route. It is lesser-known, but equally if not more, magnificent scenery wise.

Here is a bit of information for those inquiring minds out there:

?The Snake? Motorcycle Road Trip - Johnson County Chamber

Snake 421 Ride Information | The Snake 421 Motorcycle Road

This is a drive that might as well be custom designed for car such as ours. Take a look and give me your opinions please.
I figure maybe the second week of October the weather should be magnificent.

Any takers?

I would love to drive over and meet up with you, but I will be in Gettysburg that weekend meeting up with an S2000 group

Snake

Ever get any takers? I like the Snake and it has been a few years since I have been on it. Would make a good weekend trip in a couple of weeks or so.

I'm lurking, with interest, but the logistics are hard for me. Unfortunately I'm not retired yet!
