That had to of been a fun ride. Been to their web site several time and some of them pictures are amazing. Two friends of mine did it once in a Jeep. One was a local and knew when to pull over, just in time to have five bikes come racing by. Pictures of some of them trucks trying to make the corners are funny.

I can't imagine doing that road on a scooter. Family and I drove it a couple of years ago going from NC to Indiana. Made me car sick and I was driving! My hat's off to you!

It is a lot of fun, 318 curves in 11miles. I had not been on it in about 2 years as it can get very crowded.
The route back was the Cherohala Skyway,36 miles with nice sweeping turns. . Elevation goes from 2660 to about 5400.
