Thread: Tail of the Dragon Gatlinburg/Pidgeon Forge (KGKT) October 2020

    Tail of the Dragon Gatlinburg/Pidgeon Forge (KGKT) October 2020

    Although BACFest 2020 has been cancelled, JP and I were talking and wondered if there would still be any interest in motorcycle riding the Tail of the Dragon and/or hiking in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The original dates were October 13-15 (Tuesday through Thursday). We would consider shifting it to the weekend (Friday through Sunday), October 16-18.

    Please post here if you're interested and what set of dates best suit you. We'll get the conversation going.

    I might be able to have the arm twisted to hike a little. I don't ride anymore.

    We will likely be in the Knoxville area that week so may be interested. I'd suggest riding the Dragon during the week rather than the weekend. It's a lot less crowded with far fewer sport-biker-wannabes trying to prove something to someone.

    Fred, as you can see, there hasn't been much response to the motorcycle ride. Unless several others chime in by the end of the month, I guess it will be a no-go. We'll see if we can attract any more.........

    Brad, Fred, and others, Kathryn and I like the idea of going on a hike in the smokies. It would be great if more could join in. Weather permitting we will fly in a Friday morning and leave Sunday afternoon. I am going to research motels this weekend and make a reservation. I will post what we come up with.
