2015 in review (3)

2015 in review will be a series of posts reminiscing about the year’s rides. Each will highlight one header photo, the rotating images at the top of the blog, taken during that ride.

Linn Cove Viaduct on the Blue Ridge Parkway, NC

I traveled over the Linn Cove Viaduct on Day 43 of my Southern States Tour, a 65-day, 12,555 mile solo trip through 22 states.

The viaduct is part of the Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP), a very beautiful motorcycle road and one of the most memorable experiences on this summer’s big tour.

I spent Memorial weekend at Willville, a motorcycle only campground in southern Virginia, just off the BRP. I had a fun and very social weekend with many other bikers. The time was well spent getting used to the relatively narrow roadways common in that area.

It was in this relaxed mindset that I rode the parkway the next day and the day after that. The mood matched the speed limit of 45mph. The scenery was not to be rushed through for this first-time visit.

Below is a slide show of a few other photos from that section of the parkway as it approaches, snakes around Grandfather Mountain and continues on.
