Wayah Rd is about a 2.5 hr circle . The groves were not bad really. In the groved area speeds are slow, as in 25-35mph max. Slow and vertical basically... @Scared would you agree with this statement? You road it after I did, 30 minutes ish

Yeah, it's not bad at all, or at least wasn't last year. Roads around here are worse than that one.

An FYI to whomever may be interested...
If you plan on visiting Fontana Dam, it's a posted gun free zone. You'll end up waiting in the parking area.

Thanks y'all,,,We got on a road last summer that was tar and graveled and had grooves in it and Laura did not like it at all. I told her to just hang on and guide the bike,,,She was a trooper and kept going but was not happy with it.
