make dam sure your tag can be seen.
not only watch out for the police cars, they also have 1 or 2 police bikes that set around running radar.

I think its just as good and very little police. its not a tight road like the gap , more like 100+ mph curves and alot of them.
oh yea also the elevation at the top is 1 mile.

Exclamation

Went last year and all I can say is it is the best area that I have ever rode. It is undescribable from the case and point of a true bike lover. There were people there that had bikes I had only seen in magazines. Old school as well as the newest school! It was sweet riding and the people you get to meet are just as exciting to be there as you are. It can get crowded but I never had any problems with too many bikes. Ride close to the white line as you will see some people hugging the yellow and it will be close and fast feeling. Just find someone that frequents the area and talk to them about where else to go. Oh, and make sure that you can see your tag, clearly! Watch out for cops. It is easy to be overwhelmed with fun. Have fun!

Is it Fast?

Going out there next month and have been a few times. The tail sucks on the weekends. Squidfest. The tail is to slow and boring anymore. The cherahola skyway is were its at. By far my fav road to hit when visiting. This year the group I go with is headin to No. Georgia for a days ride.

Don't know why they call this stuff hamburger helper, it does just fine by itself!

well guys just having come back...and crashed...be careful and go slow the first time around. For u guys going there i highly recoment route 28 which is clear of Leo's and almost as twisty.

Oh and watch the decreasing radius corniers or u may put the bike in a ditch like i did

You must be going to Suches.
Its a good road kinda a cross between deals gap and the skyway, some parts are real tight like the dragon then it will open up to much faster curves then back real tight again.
I have NEVER seen the police running radar up there but i have seen more people crash there than ive seen at deals or the skyway.
