    Some folks might not be aware, but if you rode on the "Dragon" route near Deals Gap or the nearby road that was the back way to the Fontana Resort, you likely got your photo taken by Killboy. He has a commercial website and posts small images of bikes on these routes; they are organized by date, time and type of bike (e.g., sport bike, dresser, sport tourer, etc.) He will sell you larger images for a small fee (around $6). See link below -

    Following is a small, edited image from this website of a smart looking 2018 RT with a feller and his missus headed for some Friday evening BBQ at the Fontana Resort.

    That is nice of you to share. Am sure many didn't know about it and it helps if you ride alone!

    Thanks, Reece, for the lengthy report and pictures.
    As the days past, was wondering why no one has
    posted pictures about the trip. Am glad all went well
    and mother weather was in a better mood!

    Literally my pleasure, minus the picture posting limitation on the forum but VISIAN is determined to get me up to speed on the SMUGMUG backside method of posting pics. I have lots to learn.

    So far so good. The majority of parts on that tree seem to be sport bikes. I have rode the dragon at a spirited pace but nothing like the sport bikes. Contrary to popular belief, there are many roads in Tennessee (where I am from) that are curvy, but very few that have an army of paparazzi to take your picture.
