On Saturday 9/11/04 my son David and his fiancée Cindy Kuhne, rode up from
Athens, GA to Murphy, NC on his Virago 1100 to meet me for a day of riding
the roads. I rode up from Birmingham early in the morning on my BMW R1100RT.
We met in Murphy just before lunch. After a sandwich at Subway, we headed to
Robbinsville to start the loop.

We rode the Skyway to Tellico Plains and then Hwy 360 to Hwy 411 then right on Hwy 72. Soon we were on 129 South. We stopped at the overlook about 4:00 PM and took a couple of pictures.

That is David and Cindy in the picture at the overlook. By 4:30 we had completed the 318 fantastic curves and were at Deal's Gap taking a break. It was Cindy's
first time on the Dragon and she loved it. We then rode Hwy 28 to Franklin, NC., then south on 441 to Athens. By the end of the day, we had ridden over 600 miles. Life should be this way everyday.

Thanks for a great job on the website. Hope all is well with the Tail of the Dragon Staff....
