Deals Gap is maybe 1.5 hours from Gatlinburg. It takes me around 7 or 8 hours to get there so from South Bend, you are looking at probably close to 11 hours. Of course, this is with us stopping about every 100 miles for gas and a breather, I might be able to shorten the time this year. but with my previous bike, every 100 miles was a must.
Not in Indiana but just across the river down in Louisville for me. Wasn't sure where KY fits into the regional forums. I am up for a ride whenever, just give a shout!WOW, Only one person in Indiana riding in 2017 Hope that not all the riders have moved to Jersey or Florida for the weather. If there are any Motorcycle groups or anyone just wants to ride (when it gets warmer, the 1/2 inch of ice and the few inches of snow has to melt first) let me know and we can get together for some ride. You all be warm and safe now.
