Hit up the Tail of the Dragon and surrounding areas this past Fourth of July weekend. First time through the TOD I beat the rain by about 3 min. Had so much fun I went back the next day to do it again. Beautiful country out there for sure.

My dad lives about 8 miles from the Tellico Plains end of the Cherahola Skyway. Needless to say that I will be visiting him much more frequently.

Did you run into max wank up there?
Fortunately, no, and I'm glad I didn't. That guy is bad news. He may have been there, idk.

I only had one bike run up behind me, but was very respectful. CBR1000R (I think.) They were actually 2 up and ran very fast. I pulled over quick for them. Seemed to be very experienced rider and pillion. Pillion was riding no or one handed a lot and dragging gloves quite a bit. I had to push it to keep up with them.

But no, **** Max Risk.... I was glad not to see that fool.

He's going to kill someone that's for sure.
As for the dude riding 2 up that there is some really dumb stuff as well.
I used to know a dude back in the 70s who crashed with his best mate on the back his mate died.
That fella couldn't forgive himself and when ever he drank he would always go into a death spiral crying and just go nuts it was really sad.
These dudes don't think of the consequences.

I wasn't familiar either. Quick Google scan looks like he drives like an animal, and may have gone or is going to jail for some kind of next level child abuse 🤔
