We're from Minnesota riding two up on a 2005 K1200LT - motelling and/or B&B it. Our tentative goal is Asheville NC (Biltmore) via Great Smokies, Tail of the Dragon etc. Interests are country music, local informal non-chain restaurants, Seagrove for pottery, architecture, old technology such as old engines airplanes etc. We'll be near Asheville week of 29 Sep - Oct 6th. We don't think there will be enough time for eastern NC.
We've never been there - any suggestions would be appreciated!
