    Maggie Valley is a very motorcycle friendly town . Make sure to stop in by Dale at Wheels Through Time. Also some of the better roads I found were off the beaten path. The BRP is always good but the over looked roads are a change of pace.

    My doubts where erased when the 1/2 million $ bonus kicked in... IT is now open as of April 15 or so... sure it was worth every penny to the many small businesses in the Smoky that depend on the four or five months of summer for their income... Glad to see it open.. BTW, I traveled the section on April 18...very nice...
