2006SEP16 We continued up through Eufala and picked up AL169 to Opelika, where we got on US280 then AL25 put us into Leeds, Alabama, to visit the Barber musuem again. I'll upload a bunch of pics from the musuem and link them here, some time (added 2006sep29: Barber pics here. We then continued on AL25 and wanted to get some miles to hit the mountains the next morning, so we caught I59 to I24 to I75 and stayed the night in Athens, Tennesee. Pictures are of us leaving Abbeville in the morning, an air stop, and dinner in Gadsden.
2006SEP17 Finally, the mountains. We took the Cherohala Skyway(TN165/NC143) to US129, to The Mecca, Deal's Gap. Just cruised around for the rest of the day, hitting some good roads. From our previous trip, the fuel station on the corner of 28 and 74 had a separation built for the two toilets. Pics are of views from the Cherohala. Unfortunately, no on bike video this time. I'll have to do it again next time.
2006SEP18 Just rode around. Pics are of us leaving our hotel in the morning, the lunch location, Sally's Kitchen on NC80, and of a homesite in Lake Lure. we starting heading home from Lake Lure.
2006SEP19 Just headed home. Rain from Jax all the way to Ocala. A pic of a weird tower at the motorcycle shop in Brunswick, Georgia.
Good roads, just off the top of my head, are the Cherohala Skyway, US129 at Deal's Gap, NC80, NC215, and NC28. There are many more and I'll write them down as I ride them or remember them. You really can't make a wrong turn up in the mountains on a motorcycle.
