When we were talking at the ADV dinner last week you mentioned that you know of a bunch of good roads and even some loops out East of Charlotte. As promised, I really couldn't remember much of what you told me/us.
So, in the interest of posterity (and so any of us can come back and easily look at this thread at a later date), could you provide the specifics here? Myself I know about 218, 200, and Buster Road, but would like to know of a lot more good roads to ride to the East of Charlotte (assuming they exist).
Also, you mentioned that you had a good way to bypass Shelby on Hwy 74 that I, of course, cannot remember (not that I really understood it when you told me in the first place). What's your secret route for that, as avoiding Shelby (particularly on fun back roads) would be nice when heading West?
