Default Another Canadian special? Fridays are for ..Ohlins (Factory Tour)

As most of you know, Ohlins USA is based out of NC, just south of Asheville, and they've agreed to give us a tour of their facility AND some special s2000 promo pricing if we're nice.

Tentative trip includes a drive through Franklin to hit up that sweet newly paved 28, Ellijay road, and then head to Asheville for some Barbecue. (12 Bones)
Stop off at Sierra Nevada for a brewery tour and then to Ohlins.
Head back through the 276 and Blue Ridge

Only caveat is we get back to the ball field around 7/7:30...but then again.. just in time for some cold beer

Updated trip map: https://goo.gl/maps/FiDGbkayVzX3jiaNA

Would love to get some folks to sign up here: I have 5 or 6 cars already in at the moment

For those more familiar with these roads/route, about where do you think you'd be on this journey at 12-1pm?

Plan is to be in Asheville around 12-1 and be there for a while since we're hitting up a brewery and Ohlins after. All around the Asheville vicinity
