Pics from BRP ride this past Wed.

Well, was heading back to West Virginia and decided to take the "back way". I hit 220N to Roanoke and then caught the BRP at MM 108 just outside of Roanoke. Here are some pics of the trip:



At Sheetz just across the VA border.



The Great Valley: Once the path of Native Americans and pioneers, it is now a thriving route of trade and travel. The Parkway hovers above the Great Valley for a hundred miles south of Rockfish Gap.

End of the road, heading back 56 West (which had some of the tightest turns on some of the crappiest road I think I've ever ridden on!) to Steeles Tavern and on to I-81 back Home. Overall long-haul but it was definitely worth the trip................600 more wonderful miles added to the RC..............I'm a happy camper !

I had to drive from Raleigh to Roanoke a few years ago.
There were sections I was wishing I had my bike at the time.

Also, tell me you couldn't resist blipping the throttle a few times through the tunnel.
I know you did. I know I would.

WOW I hate to hear that about 56 That used to be a cool ride, I go that way when I go to Wintergreen and ride my bicycle. You should have went on down to Deals gap and went off there comes out at stuarts draft and usually better road.

Sent my forks off this morning! Lord willing I'll be out there before too long. Mid to late july I hope Ride safe Hoovy
