Help a rider out...

So this April, myself, RoboStraub 919, IndyTiger, and a few of my mates are planning a trip from Indianapolis down to Birmingham. I have wanted to learn how to dyno tune bikes and a guy from another forum is going to train me for free down there. We are planning on riding first to Knoxville, TN and camping somewhere there for the first night. Day two would consist of riding the Dragon, Foothills Parkway, the Skyway and making our way a bit further south while finding a place to camp. Day three and four at the dyno shop and checking out the museum at Barber. Day 5, ride to Memphis and find a place to camp. Day 6, ride to the Ohio River and maybe play a bit. Day 7, get home and take a shower.

If anyone lives along the route and would like 4 or 5 hooligans camping in the back yard let me know... Also, any suggestions on roads going south of the Dragon, skyway would be helpful...

Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. "

You need a full day to really enjoy Barber Museum.

Where are you wanting to head south of the Dragon? Memphis isn't south of there.
