I had a not so good feeling the last part of the trip. Like said before, I've had no problems with mine. I wore on...

Re: Skyline Drive Trip and BR Parkway

C-dub, Skyline Drive is only 105 miles long but the max speed limit is 35mph. The BRP, however, is 469 miles. The max speed limit is 45mph and in congested areas (there are a lot of them) the speed limit is 25mph. If you take less than a week, you'll be shorting yourself. Better to maybe only plan o...

Re: Skyline Drive Trip and BR Parkway

Made the trip down the Skyline Dr and the Blue Ridge Parkway,... WOW, 12 years ago already.
Taking a full week is doable, any less and you might as well take the X-way.

Al, Maggie Valley is certainly a great area to Ride in but personally I found the hotels to be a little on the high side. I don't know anything about Little Switzerland. In past years, I have stayed with groups in Robbinsville and Franklin, NC and was happy with the prices and certainly the area to...
