Memorial weekend was a blast. My husband and I along with two other couples traveled into Tennessee and North Carolina on our Harley’s. Traveling on a timeline in order to see and do everything we wanted to in three days was a challenge. When you’re on a motorcycle, you also pray for no rain. Our plans included riding on some serious curvy roads that are well known in those areas so we were hoping for the best. We did however get lucky and were only caught in the rain once the entire trip. Below I will add links to some of the places we visited. For all you bikers out there, you need to check these places out, you won’t regret it. One of our first stops was a place called “Bobarosa Saloon”. We arrived early so not much was going on, but sitting by the scenic French Broad River and enjoying the scenery before continuing our journey was awesome.
My review: Soothing by the riverside and definitely biker friendly.
290 The Rattler, just outside of Hot Springs, NC with 290 curves in 24 miles from Lake Junaluska to Hot Springs and another 30 curves from Hot Springs, NC to the Bobarosa Saloon which is located in Del Rio, TN My review: Good ride, but too many gravels in the curves. http://www.209therattler.com/
The Hellbender 28 is located in the Great Smokey Mountains. This one we traveled twice. Unsure of the exact amount of curves, but believe me there were plenty. http://www.hellbender28.com/
My review: Loved it!
Tail of the Dragon has 311 curves in 11 miles. http://tailofthedragon.com/dragon.html Tail of the Dragon is definitely a ride every biker needs to ride. Scary? Well, from my perspective it was. Scraping metal to concrete around those mind blowing curves were not what I expected, so yes it was intense. But, I’m glad I got to ride it.
My review: Scary, but definitely an adrenaline rush.
