Aaron might have a couple, but I'd dm him on the FB page. If not, I used a set of basic Midland radios last year and they were ok.


Also, there is a group of tristate folks cruising down together. They are also on the FB page. Joe is who I'd dm about details

Just got done modding and didn't read about this event until tonight. Definitely down next time, only live 100 miles away. Have a blast and stay safe.

What a great time with great people and fantastic weather (once the roads dried a little)


Humza from @Unity Performance came all the way down from Toronto!

Corey and @Two Step Performance came all the way from Mississippi!

A big crew from @PRL Motorsports came all the way from PA!

@HybridRacing came from Louisiana!

Such fun getting to meet, hang out, and DRIVE with these great folks.

Thanks again @KTuner and all the sponsors for helping to make this happen
Can't wait to see y'all next year!!

Wow looks like a great turn out!! This is going to be a stupid question but is this more of a cruise/car show thing or do people do runs up and down this legendary road?

There were a few groups doing runs around the Smoky mountains Friday including a group with Honda Pro Jason ( I got there too late for that run). That night there was a meet and greet at the tavern on the resort property

Saturday had the big meet and driving groups doing the Dragon and Cherohala skyway followed by a car show and banquet with charity raffle

Sunday had some informal groups but most left Sunday

I stayed though Sunday and left Monday. Minimal traffic on the Dragon Sunday afternoon and Monday morning. Prime days to rip it up!!

I came down for March Moto Madness in Tellico Plains Thursday and rode back 800 miles Monday on the T7. Saw yall down at killboys at 17:20 Saturday. I was actually the bike guy taking my picture in front of the dragon when the crew walked up so I couldn't resist taking your group photo too. Didn't bring my X but got some rides in with ya! Cool pics on killboy. My fave with the R's chasing me down.
