Besides the great TOD, we found some other fine roads as well. But for me one of the best times was a breakout three of us did on the Cherohala. Nearly 50 miles of fine twisty, rolling hill roads with me sandwiched between an e60 M5 (leading) and e63 M6 (trailing). At one point we had 35 miles with no other traffic in sight - we ran at nearly 95% of car/driver capabilities leaving that little margin for the unknown around the 15, 20 and 25 MPH corners that we did at oh I'd say something higher than that. The focus and concentration it took was just as much as the TOD took. Over the entire 50 miles we only came upon 2 cars that we overtook with ease. Exhilarating to say the least.

Lots of pics and will be some videos later over on these forums.

Planning on doing it again in conjunction with Sharkfest East in Asheville, NC 20-22 April 2007. Will post more later.
Wanted badly to make the Oct run. Glad you guys had a great time. The Cherohala is a dream.

Please keep this board posted on the April run.
