I'm dizzy... :shock:
Great vid link....WOW...sure not like the roads around Houston area. I have heard lots about it.
I may try and give it a ride next year when I hope to make it to the Honda Hoot in Knoxville.

A) The Honda Hoot is...well...a hoot. It's a good time. I've been twice, once in Asheville, NC and once in Knoxville, TN. The first time, I had my wife who was riding her own at the time. The second time, I went with a friend who was working the event. I spent a lot ot time alone the second time around. If you go, try to go with people you know. You will enjoy it much better. Also, don't bother hitting Dollywood. It sucked.
B) DEAL'S GAP KICKS AS*. You positively have to ride this thing. It is very technical and will nip you if you are not careful. I blew two corners in it and it scared me. Some of the corners are blind, decreasing radius, off camber. WOW! I hit this thing on my ST1100 and tore the **** out of the pegs. I can't wait to hit it with my '02 Interceptor. I'll have a newborn baby next year (March 29th is the due date) so I won't be able to make the migration with you; otherwise, I would be with you.
If you do go and you ride instead of trailer, just super slab it up to TN and then head up to the north side of TN and run roads just south of the KY state line. If you would like road suggestions, I can map it out for you. There is some killer riding up here just to get you to some of the best roads in the US. (my opinion based on limited travel).
Thanks for the great info. I think if I make it up there, I will probably trailer it. A buddy of mine who has a BMW 1150RT from Canada will probably meet me there. It would be great to go with several people.
Congrats on the baby on the way...if you need a break from the diaper duty, come on to the Hoot.
I would definatley like to try the roads as well as experience the great scenery. When it gets closer to the date I would like to know all the "must" roads to travel.

IMHO I think 28 is a much better road than the gap. Perfectly bank turns and smooooth.
The gap, unless the repaved it, was bumpy. Also, too many crazies crossing double yellow, not to mention buses and other land yahts taking up 1 1/2 lanes.
