I just returned from a ride starting in Indianapolis and ending in Ashville, NC. Went through the Dragonstail and the Cherahala Skyway. On my return home I decided to kill some time taking some more secondary roads. In Tennesee I chose HWY 127 that goes through Tennesee and Kentucky. I was really impressed with the quality of the roads. Good twisties, good pavement, and not heavy with cage traffic. I don't know whether it was timing or not but any traffic was minimal. But it was a great section of road and friendly local folks along the way.
