I am not sure what part of Blue Ridge Parkway you will be on. I have a few suggestions; take the time to drive up to Mount Mitchell. If going far enough North you would want to see Mabrys Mill. Near the end of Blue Ridge Parkway in Maggie Valley there is the Wheels Through Time museum (rather Harley Centric) which is worth seein that she get you started. You don't have to stop at every turnout (it would take too long but that is our Avatar photo). You will have to change gears in the mind and enjoy the scenery rather than ride fast, only 45 mph.
Enjoy your ride, buddy. My wife and I are doing the same thing at the end of July. So I'm following this thread pretty closelyThanks prs, looking to ride to Alexandria (DC), pick up my Harley buddy, pickup the BRP at Charlottesville VA and ride south to Cherokee, then we split and ride to our respective home territory. Like the Skyline, but just don't have the time for the whole thing, maybe later. My only concern is the weather up there on the BRP but I guess that goes with riding.
Yup, I rode 276 all the way from our place in Maggie Valley to Greenville Sunday to look at the IBR bikes. No bad roads around here...!Also some good riding is hwy 215 & 276 off the pkwy., either way north or south, I would do it both ways
