If you are staying on pavement then nothing to be concerned about if you ride your own ride. Dragon is 11 intense miles but just a series of turns on a slight grade. Wait until Monday to ride it so it won't be busy. Lots of fun roads. For my money 28 from campground to deals gap is a more fun ride than dragon. Make sure you ride the Cherohala to Tellico Plains. A circle to Franklin with Wayah road one way and 28 the other is great. All good paved roads, just watch for gravel on the road from trailer getting off pavement in turns or washed off side roads in rain.I have had problems with scheduling and website connection. REALLY WANT to meet you guys. If I come late and stay til Tuesday will anyone be around to ride with? I cannot leave here (7 hours away) until Saturday. I'm a newbie to this run and a little nervous about doing it alone. I have street tires, so will likely stay clear of dirt/gravel roads.
Hope you’ll let us know what was wrong with ‘er. Hate to see that happen on a trip.I thought I had the bike sorted but after some interesting off road excursion in the Snowbird Mountain area it quit shifting (DCT). Hobbled out of the Nantahala Forest in first gear where I could get help to return to KSL

Bike trip turned into a van ride home.
