Bitchin!!! How does the Ruckus handle the dragon?we go 2-3x a year.. i usually ride a honda ruckus though.. but once i get my GROM we will head down to deals gap for sure.. we have a ride planned in late Sept if we all get GROMS by then.. i have made killboys highlights a few times over the years.. this was last year
ruckus does great.. its light so it can be thrown around the curves.. up hill still suxs cause its a 50cc but down hill we usually bomb those harleys out of the way.. we either stay in robbinsville or in townsend, tn and ride the foothills parkway down to 129..Bitchin!!! How does the Ruckus handle the dragon?
Im usually there around the same time... Mid September. I just hate those dewy mornings with all the fallen leaves... can make for a sketchy morning run.
haha, they drive me bonkers and I think they purposely ride wide so i cant pass them.but down hill we usually bomb those harleys out of the way.. we either stay in robbinsville or in townsend, tn and ride the foothills parkway down to 129..
yep.. just about any road up here in Western NC is a great motorcycle road.. in my area they have the Devil's Whip.. DiamondBack.. etc.. plus near Robbinsville is the Cherohala Skyway.. we always hit that when we go..Started going to "the gap" in 2005 and have probably spent 45 days down there in about 8 trips. Midweek riding is always the best and hitting all the other roads other than the Dragon are what really make for a great trip.
I basically live here and have been riding it for years on sportbikes, motards, and scooters. Its popularity has become its worst attribute...

ive always avoided it due to all the horror stories i hear about traffic and Valentino Rossi wanna be riders. ive just always stuck to track days
i will still go one day just to say ive been. i have been on a lot of other good rodes around Birmingham, AL and throughout east TN though
