That's my favorite area for day rides. We go down there a few times a year for the weekend also. It's only a couple of hours away buy it feels like it's in a different country.
BTW, there's a group of BMW riders that spend the weekend there in Sept to ride the roads, kick lies and tell tires. Riders from Maryland, Illinois, Alabama, Mississippi etc, come and enjoy the area and company. The Holiday Swiss is headquarters for the group. This year it's the weekend of Sept 14, 15 and 16th. The motel has a block of rooms for us at a special rate.
Everyone's welcome. Let me know if you want more info.
