    Welcome to Tennessee

    Enjoy. I'm sure you're going to like the "Back of the Dragon" (VA Route 16:Marion to Tazewell). Hope you miss most of the rain this weekend.

    Yep, this is one of those bucket list rides. I remember when I did it. Had a blast.
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    I've ridden 209 several times, great ride with lots of twisties. I've never ridden 107 but have left Hot springs and rode different roads to east side of I-26 then 19 to Burnsville, another nice twisty ride. And of course while you're in the area you might as well ride Roan Mtn and keep going into Mountain City and try your hand at handling the "Snake".
