Thanks Greg. this sounds like a great ride. \\
I am not familure with this particular route, but I know that most of the roads in this part of the state are great.
When in Tryon, check out Sidestreet Pizza. Hopefully some good buddies from Texas will be able to make the rally. We have some amazing routes mapped out to introduce them to. 🙂
Maybe we should have all the i-bmw riders meet in the beer tent at 7:00 Friday. 😎 😉
My wife and I were at the Biltmore in ’04, I-26 is a really nice stretch of road. It was around 8pm on I-26 and the sun was setting just behind the BRM and the clouds were like a river running between the hills 🙂
