|Start of the Skyway|
On the way there, I'm going to take the scenic route that crosses the Cumberland Plateau. This takes me on some of my favorite roads in Tennessee. Two of my favorite are US Highway 70 and TN State Road 30. All these roads are fantastic Motorcycle Roads in their own right. I arrive in Tellico Plains for the start of the Skyway. I stop to take it all in. I get some pictures, and then it begins.

|On the Skyway|
The next day its rinse and repeat for my journey back home. Today it's the Dragon, this road is a test, a technical route. Sure it fun, but about halfway through, I'm thinking I wish I was on the Skyway. This is my third time on the Dragon, and I know there are a lot of great motorcycle roads in Tennessee. There are a lot out there that I have yet to ride. To me, there are some better, more technical roads up by the Cumberland Gap; the Tennessee Lost Highways are much better.
So I get home with my ich scratched and the Cherohala Skyway under my belt. In a few months, Terri and I plan to travel back out to East Tennessee in the fall to ride some more of these roads and to see the leaves change. I really can't get enough of this.
