Cool. We were actually looking to rent in Franklin (despite never being there...although we were in Murphy) but we ran out of time and wound up near Knox. But we are looking to explore there asap. I just can't do The Dragon with the wife. (We did it in Sept...in a rented Buick. Whee!)

Last year after our 2nd run, someone headed up the dragon in a huge RV towing a jeep... it took over an hour before it was clear again hahaha

I had the wife yelling to "slow down!" (I'm in a freaking Buick! It only GOES "slow down"), while 1000 bikes zoomed past me. But at least I can say I "road the Dragon"! (But looking forward to a redo with the beast)

You can get away without a navigator. There's enough cars that you can usually just follow the herd.

Yeah...but it'd be more fun with a nav. Haven't met enough people yet...and those that know me would rather NOT go over The Dragon with me.

LOL...right? Haven't seen another E-39 *at all*. Actually...not sure I've seen ANY M5s. Loving 100% gas 93 octane $2.59 though.
