I rode it from the south end of the Dragon to just south of Highlands, NC (about 65 miles). The Moonshiner's 28 has a nice combination of 10-15 mph twisties, 55-mph sweepers and some fantastic scenery (falls, rivers, etc.).Yes, it's a great area with many great roads. How much of highway 28 did you ride? I don't think I've ridden it knowingly and I may pay that area a visit yet again over the Columbus Day weekend.
