East TN riders?!

Is noone in this forum from East Tennessee? (Knoxville, Maryville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Johnson City?) I currently live in Sevierville, about 30 minutes away from KNoxville, 20 minutes away from the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, and about 45 minutes away from Cherokee (Cherokee Survivors bike rally). I really suspected there would be a few more riders up my way.

No, I graduated from JBC a LONG time ago. I have lived all over the Eastern half of the US. Moved back to TN about 14 years ago.

I wish I has a motorcycle in each place, but that would be asking a bit much I guess. Getting to fight Nashville traffic and riding in Mid TN is about it

Welcome Steve, looks like you already settled in and making riding plans
We'll be passing through Maryville on Monday July12 going to Stecoah NC. Not sure yet if we are going to stroll down 411 to Sweetwater and across the Cherohala Skyway to Robbinsville or down 321 through the middle of some of the worst traffic/drivers in the eastern seaboard. Since we'll be coming through Monday the traffic may be light and G'burg/Cherokee may be the best. Mileage I'll bet there isn't 6 miles difference.

Alcoa good times? Ive never had anything done through them, but when we go in they are always nice. I just got tires put on my bike I sold cost $350 for everything and the rear tire was free! Quiet expensive. If you can get the tires off your bike yourself I usually order from "In The Wind" they are in knoxville, and the Cycle Gear in Knoxville Mounts and balances

haha this time of year G'Burg is horrible all the time i would definately go the Cherohala skyway over the Dragon any day. This time of year its been really hot, it'll be in the 50's on the skyway so bring jackets. Have a safe trip.
