    MOA Rally in Tennessee

    Is there anyone riding to the Tennessee rally from Philadelphia or Chester County area?

    When are you leaving? Plan? I'll be passing by but out by Hagerstown, heading south.

    I was going to leave early on the 12th and take two days to get there. I can leave a day earlier tho. I can be in Hagerstown in about two hours.

    Interesting ride

    Here's a suggested route for y'all that takes in some countryside in WV, KY and TN that you may not have ridden... to view a traditional Google Map, use the pull-down menu on the top right to select it.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Me too. Funny but with just two minor changes Ian's route is exactly what I have planned for the return trip!

    Most welcome, I did that quickly with the "avoid highways" option on.... so the possibility of a dirt road exists. At a minimum, it's a good starting point...

    There is also a really sweet road that parallels I-81 to the north... VA 42. Also, the 600 numbered roads are a great option through the mountains just north of I-81

    H still talks about your Super Twisties route we used during the Johnson City rally.

    We stopped to let the lane blocking " gentlemenly lane monitors" get ahead of us so we could at least maintain pace in the curves. She was shaking her head when I mentioned we were just entering the fun part

    Always some good routes

    New Plan

    i am now thinking that I will leave the Philadelphia area on 11-June and taking the super slab down (81). Staying over in Salem VA on Tuesday night and then staying in Harriman tn on Wednesday night. Then there is a short ride to the rally. Plan is to take the blue ridge parkway back. I am approaching 70 and have not taken a long trip in years. I know the super slab is not fun but I'm thinking it will give me a good idea of my endurance while not taking so long to get there. The ride back will be with all the knowledge I gained from the trip down.
