If you want to have the most interesting experience possible then just past the glitter and neon of Gattlinburg is GSMotorent in Townsend Tn. (about 18mi away)There you’ll meet up with Dan and his wife at their awesome shop. They will hook you up with great bikes and an insiders look at the park. I came down with my girlfriend and we went on a 200 mile trip (on separate bikes) thru the mountains that I will always remember. Dan and his wife made us feel right at home, asked us what type of riding we were looking for and set us up with turn by turn instructions that will get you there and back. I highly recommend this experience and plan to go back as often as possible!!!
Very Sincerely, Bob Burriss
