Hiawassee GA on the 2012

Good friends, good times - 5 full days through NC/SC/TN/GA. New bike (2012 Versys) ran great - no problems. We put 200-300 miles on the bikes each day - did all the obligatory rides (129, 28, Richard Russell, Wolf Pens Gap, etc.) plus found a lot of new secondary routes that we will be repeating next year!






Quick video of 143 weaving through the canopy before it opens up as the Cherohala Skyway.......

Looks like a great trip! Personally 2-300 miles a day is just right. I prefer to take it a bit slower and take in the sights. I know a few guys a like to ride
500+ miles a day but I take a pass on that.
Thanks for the report.

Very cool. Great photos.

Can't wait to get up there with my new Versys. Maybe next month.

Were you on the Blue Ridge Parkway on the 18th? I think I may have saw you, I definitely saw a '12 V.
