    The Smokey Mountain 500 - Get yer Dual Sport On!

    I just recently learned that there is a 500-mile, mostly gravel all two-way public road loop through the Smokys and Nantahala. It's a 3-day trail with stops at three MC campgrounds. It has a Facebook page of course and a thread on ADV Rider, which is the best place to get info IMO.

    Since I just this year disowned my allegiance to sport tourers and got on a V-Strom, I'm feeling like I should find more gravel to ride on. This might do it.

    Here's their thread on ADV Rider

    Thank you for posting this. I'm curious about various dual sport rides since I'm looking to add a dual sport to the stable. I'm have my eyes on the KTM 790 Adventure R. While in Strugis I took one out on a test ride. Awesome!

    I found this post interesting since I have been downsizing my "herd". I am trying to sell my Victory sidecar rig and my MiniMate camper. I sold my BMW and recently acquired a much smaller dual-sport Royal Enfield Himalayan. Yup, I'm going back to sleeping in a tent. Click image for larger version.
