It gets stupid up there on the weekends, but weekdays are pleasantly empty, so try it then. Also I haven't seen too many rangers at speed traps out in the boonies, but they do enforce the limits at the areas where it drops from 45 to 35, like at Mabry Mill, Peaks of Otter, etc.
And, according to BWS, who lives 5 minutes from the BRP, if you just stick your knee out you can kill those deer no problem.
The Rangers on Skyline always seem to be a little more prone to strike than the more domesticated variety normally found along the Parkway. So watch for the leaf peepers, tan Dodge trucks, white explorers, etc. Enjoy!
Nope, they are not well marked, and in fact sometimes the ones that are there are not open, although usually not in autumn. But if you get low on gas, just hop off and head down the hill to any town near the BRP. You'll hit something right away. Plus you'll get some of the best BRP rides, i.e. the ascents towards and descents from the Parkway.

OK, locals. I have most of the stuff to change tires: Harbor Freight changer, MarcParnes balancer, jack stands, wheel weights, air compressor, and torque wrench. I'm waiting on a mojolever and mojoblocks and stands (pit bull or other). Tires are ordered and on the way.
Sooooo, I've never...
Let me know if a local needs an Advanced Battery Charging System (Programmed for BMW Gel Batteries). I sold my 04 KRS so I don't need it. All you need is the BMW adapter to fit your bike.
PM so we can meet for easy pick up. I don't want to bother mailing it.
Free of course.
