NC Rider here
Salisbury here..no real good roads around here, so I go the the mountains of southern VA/TN or Western NC.
I am going to Cruso, NC (between Brevard and Waynesville) this week-end, Aug. 3-4, to camp and ride all week-end.
Anyone interested ..? let me know and I will provide more details.
I have also attached a pic of me and my KAT at an overlook on the Cherohala skyway.
