Good video! I've been down there several times now. Both times I hit it during the mid/late morning (9am-1pm) and on a weekday. Traffic was minimal both times. Given I was a 'tourist' I wasn't flying through there. In fact, the first time went through at probably 5 under the speed limit just to get a feel for the road.

Going S-N is mostly downhill. Going N-S is somewhat easier as you don't have to deal with an accelerating bike (most of the time).

My biggest fear is indeed some diesel dummy deciding to take a shortcut. There are warning signs at the beginning, but from the number of trucks that drive the road it's clear they either can't read or don't care.

What do you do if there's an 18 wheeler coming around in your lane and you have nowhere to go....

For reasons such as this I'll probably stay off during non holiday weekdays. There are other roads just as nice, cherohala skyway (tn 165), tn 28, brp (blue ridge parkway), that offers a similar rush but is somewhat safer.

FWIW, if you do go down there, try to maintain some sort of following distance to the vehicle in front (be it bike or car).

Good tips. I plan to hit the other roads the Wednesday before Z dayz.

Sounds good. I've got some work to do to make my g35 photo worthy. Also need to change brake fluid, swap driver window motor, and get new rear tires. Is this a sign I should take the g37 this year? Lol
