This just in fellas....The BRP has been on my Bucket List since I started riding and it looks like it may happen. I have been invited by a member of the ST-Owners Forum to attend the Blue Ridge Gathering in Sylva, NC. This is a massive event.....I will be camping:eek:(actually, I will be in a Camp Cabin) at Moonshine Creek Campground. Don't worry I will be posting pics as long as I have internet. Otherwise I will post them when I get back:):)

Have a great time Phil. I've riden the west end from US 276 to Cherokee. One of these days I want to start at Cherokee and ride all the way north. Look forward to your pictures, but here is a couple to wet your appetite. Hope your ride isn't as rainy as mine was. Still a great day!

If it's true that " The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain " you should be OK in the higher elevations and you're in Spain.

Ref,

Wear layers and remember your rain suite and you should be fine. I Love the BRPW. Last time there was in October of 2009 right after I bought my Wing. Did Skyline Drive and the first 250 miles the parkway down to Wythville. Watch out for the animals and LEO's. Wish I could go along, but Mom's Dr appointments are this week. Ride safe and enjoy..
