A coworker and myself are planning a trip from Greenville SC to Deals gap and back tentatively set for the 26-July-08.

We will leave EARLY around (5AM) and plan on getting to the Gap by late morning. We plan to ride North around the Great Smokey Mountain National Park to Pigeon Forge for lunch. Head down thru the Park down thru Brevard and back to Greenville by late afternoon / early evening. It will probably be an 10+ hour trip, 300-350 miles. As with most trips it will likely take longer than we plan.

If anyone is interested in going let me know. Everyone is welcome. It will not be a slow cruise, but my friend rides a VTX1800 so we won't be going track pace either.

I am usually very bad at estimating time. I told my wife I would be gone for 3 or 4 hours. It ended up being 9. She wasn't so happy.

I'd love to, but I have a wedding to shoot that Saturday. Be nice to have two VFRs out.

We had to change the date to 19-July-08 due to a unforeseen schedule conflict.

Sorry about that !

Well, the ride was good. Wish some riders forum people could have attended. I rode just over 400 miles, but we were on the road for 16.5 hours. That is the longest I have ever ridden. The gap was cool, but it was mostly cruisers. I'm not sure why.

I'd like to go again some day but not for as long.
