If Y'all ever get a chance to visit the US I would highly recommend visiting Gatlinburg, Tennessee and riding your GTS around the Smoky Mountians. It's really quite amazing and very "Touring Abroad worthy!"


This is a Tip for touring abroad on a recent trip I took from the Catskills in New York to Virginia to Tennessee and North Carolina and back to New York again...


My husband and I took our scooters, on our honeymoon, with us and used our time wisely.
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...CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWd4Xpe2uvc 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. :mrgreen:

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 CLICK HERE FOR PICTURES! http://s524.photobucket.com/albums/cc324/catskillnyrider/Honeymoon/?albumview=grid

This was my route. (Individual scooter routes to come)

We also hit a music festival, while passing through Virginia, called floyd fest in Floyd Virginia with the likes of the Duhks and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals...

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.
