Atlanta to Deals Gap
Departing Atlanta on an R 1200 GS on October 9 and riding to Deals Gap. What are the best roads to take and places to stop, enjoy and eat along the way. Returning to Atlanta on October 13.
(I don't mean to be rude, but I've read all the pros and cons of the Tail of the Dragon, so I do not need a lot more information on why or why not to ride that stretch.)
Ride it starting about 15 minutes after first light on Thursday. You won't encounter problematic traffic and can enjoy the geometry of the road.

Ride over to BMW of Atlanta and talk to them. Bring a map,so you can highlight routes. Most of the folks there will be happy to help,as they know the area well.Ask for Bob(owner) he's quite a rider.
It's a way of life!
Got time to ride the Cherohala (sp?) Skyway from Robbinsville to Tellico Plains? Nice road, great views and a hamburger joint on the river in Tellico that was pretty darn tasty!

Here's a good ride with a couple of twisty bits along the way.
Another option is just to follow 129 through Cleveland... you get some nice twisties going that way, too.
