We are planning a trip that way, hopefully this fall. I have a friend in/near Clinton, SC
so visit her and head up the road....you are blessed to be living in such a beautiful area...

We live about 3 miles off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. I did a lot of my very first rides there riding my Honda Shadow 650, and did my first "long" trip from my house to Boone and Blowing Rock, NC - about 400 miles round trip. LOL I remember when 45mph was terrifying and 10 miles seemed like a long time. Now,it's a different story - I would head out on a 1800 mile trip tomorrow if the opportunity was there !

You should come down some time - the Parkway has wonderful curves and most of the road is in pretty good shape. There are some nice views too !

One of my favorite bike rides is Route 220, either North from Roanoke, VA to Clifton Forge or South to Martinsville. Clifton Forge is a nice small town with locally owned restaurants and the curves either way are a nice ride 55-65 mph.

One of the guys in the other group and his wife rode up to Maine and talked about
how nice it was. This summer has been the pits for riding around here, unless you
want to wade water....we have had unseasonable amounts of rain...

Good to see you posting DEB.....

Went to the Hell's Canyon Rally in Baker City, Oregon on the eastern side. Great rides all around and beautiful countryside.

Have a care on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The police enforce the ridiculous 45 mph speed limit.

I'd tell them to go west into the mountains. Way too much traffic here.

If someone came to your town to ride, where would you tell them to ride? What are some of your favorite local spots?
