Blue Ridge Parkway ride.

Several weeks ago I took a little trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway on my K1200RS. What a blast! The curves are all engineered with a specific formula that makes them easy to negotiate. The radius slowly tightens up for the first third then goes to a set radius through the apex and exits with a progressively decreasing radius. The scenery is amazing and the shoulders are kept very clean and manicured.

I shot some video of the journey and made a nifty helmet mount for my GoPro along the way. Enjoy the ride!

Blue Ridge Parkway

Sounds great. I am jealous. I rode the Blue Ridge Parkway back in 1978 on a honda 750 what a excellent ride. I just can't get myself to go past the middle of country because of the long flat nothing there. I guess like mountain-corners to much. Have fun. Richard.

Trailer or train it to Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground in Cruso, NC and we'll get you to some fine riding.
