Just returned from my first trip on the 1500. Our 15th anniversary was this month, so I surprised my wife with a 4 day/1200 mile trip to the Parkway. We had done from Asheville to Cherokee in my truck before, but this was the first time on 2 wheels. Great trip! We always got up and on the road at sunrise, and it seemed that we almost had the road to ourselves for a few hours. Took plenty of time to stop at all the vistas we wanted and just enjoy it. Scenery was awesome in the morning with the "sea" of fog below us. Saw a LOT of wings and HD's, only a few sport bikes. Seemed bikes outnumbered cars as well. Only trouble came in the form of us rounding a blind left hand bend only to see a Jeep Wrangler in our lane driving with his left wheels off the road. There were 4 bicycles riding single file on his side white line and he way over compensated. Got on the binders and he had plenty of time to get out of the way. Anyway, she loved the trip as well. Probably helped that I took wine, and stopped and bought more at the Biltmore for the rest of the trip. Got to pre-planned hotels early enough to get dinner then relax in the pool/hot tub and have a few glasses then still get a good nights sleep. Will try to post a few pics, she snapped almost 100 from the back seat.
