I'm leading a small group on a two week trip this September. Skyline Drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, down to Charleston, then home via the Outer Banks. I did this ride solo several years ago, and I'm pumped to hit it again.

We'll definitely hit the usual suspects - Deal's Gap, Cherahola Skyway, etc.

I assume quite a few MOA folks have chewed up some miles around the southern end of Parkway and NC/TN, and I'd love to pick your brains. I'm wide open to suggestions for awesome riding and funky roads, tasty restaurants, scenic photo ops, romantic make-out spots (yes, it's that kind of group...well, it is in my head) and other noteworthy stuff that only people who've been there/done that can recommend.

Thanks in advance.
