Default Highway 181, NC - gsxr750

Had the best time ever riding this road

My parents just happen to live ~5 minutes away at lake James, and I just happened to ride my bike 9 hours down there. I won't be doing that again , but if anyone lives by this road, its awesome! Very nicely paved, 70mph road to ride.







The object of life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
"What a Ride!!!"

I have heard that is a beautiful stretch of road. I have yet to really make it out to western NC riding yet. Next time you're all the way down here you should hit me up and we'll ride!

For sure! I have to come up with a trailer though, the ride down there was brutal.... I started at midnight and arrive around 830. I stopped 5 times, each time for about ~15+ minutes to rest.

And if you look at the map, their looks like their are a ton of other roads out there, it just happened this one was so close and it was too awesome to even try another road lol.

yeah, the roads out there beat the hell out of the ones local to me currently. You have the blue ridge parkway, cherohola (sp?) skyway, tail of the dragon and many others that aren't nearly as well documented.

I heard Little Switzerland is awesome, blue ridge looks like a lot of fun, so do a few others right around 181.
