    Very cool! That looks like the perfect day trip. My wife and I drove the Blue Ridge Mountians last month in NC. Have you been to Brevard, NC yet? We drove, explored, hiked and saw several waterfalls. IMG_6125.jpg

    My wife and I have traveled from Sparta, N.C. to the Shenandoah Skyline. We just have to finish from Sparta southward to say we drove the entire B.R.P.
    Thanks for sharing the pics!

    Yes, living her in Western NC, we know Brevard well, a cool little college town. My wife and I actually have ridden our bikes the entire length of the Blue Ridge Parkway a few years back. It's our backyard...From the Smoky Mtn express way all the way to Front Royal, Va. It's an amazing ride of a life time. It only took us two weeks just plugging along on the bikes. Western NC is a motorcycle riders dream.

    You bet, very cool you and your wife did the BRP ride! We love it here as we both ride.

    Bought her a bare bones Suzuki 650 Vstrom in 15 and I did an "Everything Givi build" on it for her. She loves this bike and it handles well and gets the dualsport job done nicely.

    We had vacation plans change two weeks before the original plans. So, we decided to spend the week on the parkway. One of the best vacations ever.
