I like a good road AND a good BBQ place and will be in the area for a few days AFTER July 4th.
I've been known to drive for miles for BBQ.

Hey, Bro!

Here's a route I would recommend, especially from Livingston on in to Knoxville. You'll love TN 85 and TN 116 (Devil's Triangle). Have fun.

Don't know too much about eating places....I'm usually just riding when I'm on these roads. However, you might want to post this on the Tennessee sub-board or send a PM to wimpyhonda or boxmaker.....they know every good eating place in the state!

Explore safely.

I picked up my new GL in Franklin TN yesterday and rode 52 from Orlinda to US27 as part of my ride home. 52 is not much fun from Portland to Red Boiling Springs. (It's been "improved" a bit too much.) But it's great after that.

I highly recommend 52. The route that robeth posted would be great except for that last bit down I75. I prefer US441 at that point, but you're close enough to town that it probably doesn't make much difference.

No plans to do the Wing-Ding-Thing..................

Have friends that live in Knoxville, so we are stopping through and visiting them and then headed on to Nova Scotia. We will be leaving Grand Island on the evening of the 28th of June. We should be in and out of Knoxville by the first or second.

When are you headed out?

Great to hear from you!

looks like a unanimous Hwy. 52. Got it loaded in the GPS last night. Trailer is already packed with just about everything. Leaving in a week WooHHOOOOO! Thanks everybody for the input.

Don, do you have any idea when is Al going to be in Maine? It would be interesting to meet up...

You and the missus have a great time at WD!:thumbup:
