By taking 81 down you will make good time but miss a lot of the scenery until you get to the "tail"... The BRP runs parallel with 81 and you may want side trip the ride down by trying some of the side roads to the BRP. Are you in a rush to get there or do you have the time to meander about the states? I too would like to ride down there some day... Maybe next year?

The BRP starts just a few miles from my house. Really nice riding. Start near Crozet, and end up near the tail. When is your trip planned?
