Did a nice ride today. Ran through the cherohala skyway, Lots of gravel near robbinsville. Be careful! if you decided to give it a go! Then did a few runs through the dragon! Overall roads are in good shape.

Near Robbinsville close to the junction of the skyway & 129 (aka the dragon) is where Youssef636 went down last year.
& it was the gravel that got em too.

I am aware of that gravel and is sometimes very difficult to see it till you feel it. I was following an HP4 there last year and with his traction control he didn't seem to mind the gravel but I slowed way down because I don't like jumping sideways while cornering. Thanks for info on the Cherohala and Dragon as there are 85 hours and 40 minutes left till the fun begins. Unfortunately not on my Ohlins equipped 636 but now on my RC8R. And it IS a fun bike.

69 hours 30 minutes left. Bike is ready just need to pack. 37 lbs. front 37 lbs rear, due to possible bleed off next week. Footpegs lowered( we'll see how much ground clearance at the Gap). Handlebars raised. Tag and front left mirror on.
