Thinking about the Smoky Mountain 500 on bike bikes.
« on: September 23, 2021, 03:10:15 PM »
I’ve been talking about doing the Smoky Mountain 500 on my he bike BMW. Is any one interested.
For me it would probably be the week between Christmas and New years.
I know a couple of guys have mentioned it in recent days.

If you’ve done it speak up. If your interested speak up too.

I am interested, I'll no more after October about my schedule.  Are you thinking about a 3 day trip?  Not sure about taking the GD or the 690.

I will be taking the BMW. I thinking 3-4 middle of the week. I have friends in Andrew’s NC so I have a good secure location to base from or drop trailers.

I watched some videos and there is at least one water crossing I don't think I would want to do in December.  Y'all have fun and take plenty of photos!

The week between Christmas and New Years is an unpredictable time, weather wise.  We camped in Helen in New Years weekend in single digit temps.

Will you be camping? Hotels? ...???
