Nashville, TN

New rider in Nashville, have a Suzuki SV650S. Just wondering if there is anyone else from around this area, that has knowledge of some fun routes in this area.

I know of nothing around Nashville, though I'm sure there are some great roads. I'm ~90 minutes down I-65 from you.

Ah, huntsville. I lived in Bham for 2 yrs, hated that city. I plan on trekking down that way some week. The company I work for has a warehouse over in florence and i think the backway to there from Nashville is pretty decent.

Hey check out this website and see if you can't get in touch with some of these guys. I met a few of them and they seemed pretty cool, I never did get to ride with any of them though because I only lived there for 6 months during the winter.

Unfortunately once you ride the gap and the skyway, those fun roads become extremely boring. Then you get an addiction to the gap and have to go all the time and if you don't, you go through bad withdrawal. I haven't been for a couple of weeks right now and it is killing me. I got a trip planned with some fellow SVers from svrider on saturday though. It's time to scrub those pilots down.
