Aw, hell -- I just found the smilies . ..
Post one or it didn't happen,.......
I have officially claimed the throne to the entirety of Canada. Any future Canucks posters are required to ship me one item of free Indian swag prior to planting a location pin on my turf.
The Lodge at Tellico, At the mouth of the Cherohala Skyway, in Tellico Plains, TN.
They offer discounts for Veterans, and indoor MC parking for $5 more a night.
Beautiful, comfortable log cabin looks and and feel with clean modern amenities.
Thankee for this. We've done the Skyway from Tellico Planes east a couple of times. Ate memorable fish (and I've lived on the Gulf Coast with daily access to excellent, fresh saltwater and freshwater seafood all my life) at a little restaurant, Tellicafe, on Bank St., which runs north off Unicol Turnpike (access to the Skyway). I was amazed to find better than decent fish, other than catfish, that far inland.
For those of you riding The Cherohala Skyway either way and have the time: From the Robbinsville end,, take 129 south to US 74 and ride that back to Cleveland, TN. 74 is very mild for awhle but then takes you through highly-technical passages in the Ocoee River Gorge. There's one hairpin that semi's can't take staying in one lane and block the whole road negotiating it. From the Tellico end, take the fairly puckering TN 68 south to Cleveland, TN and go east on US 78.
The Executive Department and I favor low-cost concrete tents for travel. We like the Tuskeegee (sic) motel on NC 28 (Moonshine Highway) over the mountain on NC 143 from south Robbinsville and then north 2.5 miles. Right out of the 50s, and very motorcycle friendly. They even has a box of old face towels in the office for wiping seats and windshields in the morning.
There's nothing interesting in the Pee Cola area. Nothing at all.
Dead center USA - Soul Movers Cycles (brand new) has a fully equipped Indian bike shop with most everything you can get at a dealership, as well as plenty you cannot find elsewhere. ALL the parts you are likely to need for any repair or rebuild, a couple dozen of the newer Indians and friendly, knowledgeable, expert help who love to work on and talk about Indian bikes.

I normally prefer to camp next to the bike, I know quite a few places around the country I make camp at. One of my favorites was on a picnic table at the park in Seneca, KS. The town constable came out to check on me, we ended up chatting about our time in the service, then here opened the bathroom and put in a new roll of paper towels, and told me to go to the pavilion with the bike if it rained. I slept really well that night.
This started out as a fantastic idea.
Maybe we could give it another try. It would be awesome to see where the other Indian owners are at.
Why not just keep it simple and just be your location. Not necessarily a lodging but simply a friendly helpful face to get you going when needed. Or point you in the right direction.
Another example is the KOA in Douglass, WY. The sky turned black in front of me coming into Douglass. The amazing couple that ran the KOA had no campsites left, so they let me stay with my bike in their stables, since they weren't using it at the moment. I have found that I learn where the good people are by not staying at hotels.
Yet another example is a local guy I bumped into in a little town in eastern Oregon. I was setting up camp on a picnic table in the town park. He was just out riding a small motorcycle, and stopped to check out the stranger in town with the gorgeous bike. Long story short, we barbequed at his house, plagued catch with his big, dopey hounds, and I crashed on the couch. He made breakfast in the morning, and since I was very low on gas, he showed me a hardware store with a buffalo of 91 non-ethanol out back. I didn't know how to pay him for his kindness, so I filled his bike up, too.
Throw in a farmers daughter and a Shotgun and you have a good novel !!!!
