Rode the Dragon and Cherohala in late June while bringing my new (to me) V from Atlanta. Both were magnificent: well worth the effort. The Dragon, by not being a thru-road anymore, is only ridden by people who WANT to be there. No semis, Winnebagos, or blue-haired tourists going 5 mph. Though it was full of police it was nearly deserted and great fun even at 35. A pity it can't stay that way from my perspective, but a gas station gent in Tellico said it was a real inconvenience for local residents.
and BTW... there were 3 cops on the 'Drag and nobody "off the island". There were none on Cherohala, and 3 riders off the road........
