The ride from Gatlinburg to Townsend exit through the park is a great ride but my advice is to avoid the Cades Cove loop - unless you really like duckwalking your bike 11mi and cooking your engine and clutch. The valley is gorgous, don't get me wrong and from the comfort of an air conditioned cage its a pleasant waste of 3hr or more depending on how many deer there are to distract the tourists. I suggest a better use of your day would be to exit to Townsend, go through town and get on the Foothills Pkwy to 129.
