    It's actually at the crossroads at 129 (Dragon's Backbone) in North Carolina but also near Knoxville. I have been there. (I assume you mean the one at the end of the movie).

    I believe it is at the crossroads where the campground is. It is now a gas station/store and I was not aware of the movie history until a few years after my visit.

    I've decided I need a smaller bike. I want to trade out for a newer (2014+) Triumph Bonneville. I think that will suit me better. I'm still not comfortable taking this thing on main roads anywhere. I was never really into getting a big bike to begin with really. I guess I'll see what's out there.

    Retired my CL14 I bought way back in 2005. Rocking a new lid I just got in today and I love it. HJC RPHA 70. So quiet and it has an integrated drop down sun shield. I got this color by mistake but I'm digging the asymmetrical scheme so I'm keeping it.

    During my short stint as a cruiser owner I bought a GMax gm67. It's a pretty good looking 3/4 helmet that comes with a peak visor or the traditional clear visor. I thought the peak visor made it look pretty good. Also has a built in brake light that bluetooths to your bike via a transmitter wired into the bike's brake light as well as an internal drop down sun visor. It's a whole lot of helmet for the money (around 50 bucks these days). My wife likes it and still wears it when we ride together.

    How far away do you think you are?

    Was on the site recently and the UK factory tour sounds fun.
