Just got back from my honeymoon. My husband and I took our scooters with us and used our time wisely. We hit a music festival called floyd fest in Floyd Virginia with the likes of the Duhks and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals...
I was originally going to hit Virginia, Tennessee and Florida...but...when James and I got to Gatlinburg, Tennessee we fell in love and decided to can florida and stay in Tennessee for the remaining 8 days...We did many things and rode many places (pics, routes and stories to come) the most notable and fun was riding the Tail of the Dragon along the Tennessee and North Carolina Border...Here is a video for your enjoyment!
I have not purchased pics yet but they are up on these sites below from July 28th and the 30th when we rode 129/Deals Gap.
The Tennesse side of the Smokey Mountains is amazing and much fun on a 250cc+scooter. I would highly recommend anyone planning a similar trip bring along their rain gear. The weather can and does change at a moments notice in the Smoky Mountains.
Of course the Tail of the Dragon is the big draw to go to that area but once you're out there you will find there are many other windy twisty roads to enjoy with very rewarding destinations filled with natural beauty. If I wasn't so tired from un-packing I'd post some of the routes...I will do that later for now enjoy the [url=http://s524.photobucket.com/albums/cc324/catskillnyrider/Honeymoon/?albumview=grid]pictures[/url] and the YOU TUBE video!
This was my route. (Individual scooter routes to come)
We used this to get the scooters to each destination and then parked the rig and used the scooters to explore everywhere.
I know by some standards that may seem lame to you but we had limited time and if we rode our scooters down we would not have had nearly as much fun time exploring the mountains. Personally I'd rather be on a mountain road any day than a highway.
