No gravel roads at all, but lot's of switchbacks with a pretty steep incline.

What was the smoke in the pictures? Dark smoke is never good....
Yep, I would have loved to see you and RayJ. We were sitting having a coffee in town when Lewis was working on the bikes. My back was to the window, and my buddy said "check out the smoke". It happened to be the recycling plant on fire. If you check out the pictures again, one of the one's with the smoke is actually a video. That was before I knew it was the recycling plant on fire. Within a few hours the smoke was a heck of a lot worse.

We planned on seeing Grandfather mountain a couple years ago. We were on our GL1800 Roadsmith trike pulling an Aluma MCTXL trailer. They refused entry because of the trailer. They said we could leave the trailer in the parking lot at the entrance but could not guarantee that it wouldn't be stolen or broken into. By them actually saying that to me, put up a red flag. We chose to continue our trip and not go in.

Going up those switchbacks I wouldn't want to pull a trailer!

If you folks are back in the area, I own Bobís Dairyland in Roan Mountain, TN. Just across the line from Grandfather. Would love to meet more Goldwingers.

When at the meet and greet my brother and I stayed just up the road at Mountain View Moto Campgrounds in Elk Rapids. We actually ate at your place one of the evenings we were there.
Had the : " BBQ Sandwich Combo--Our delicious wood-smoked Pork sandwich, accompanied with Cole Slaw, a soft-drink, and a massive pile of French Fries!"

It was very good thank you
