A couple of weekends ago, I headed north on the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Meadows of Dan in Virginia, riding the Parkway for most of the 600 mile trip. I couldn't have asked for better weather, with two warm sunny days, and one rip-roaring night of thunderstorms and heavy rain that luckily stopped right before sunrise. Can't beat that! I stayed at the Willville Motorcycle campground in the Meadows of Dan, just a short distance north of the Parkway. It's definitely one of the nicest campgrounds that I've ever stayed at.
Tons of bikes on the Parkway, about 60% cruisers and 40% 'adventure' styled bikes. I like 'em all, and everybody was having a great time riding one of the finest roads in eastern America. At the campground, most of the bikes were adventure style, with only two crusiers in the camp.
Morning comes after a stormy night in the mountains near the Meadows of Dan - that's a pretty cool name for a mountain town.
A late night visitor to my campsite - I barely missed getting a shot of it peering over the windscreen. Not finding anything to eat, it soon disappeared into the night, but I did get this one shot before it left.
Beautiful 'downtown' Meadows of Dan, just south of the Parkway.
I had to get the obligatory shot of Mabry Mill - it's supposed to be the most photographed location along the entire length of the Parkway.
This one was from the trip that Jon and I did across the Parkway this past weekend to Cherokee - he has the new Givis on his green Vee now.
An aerial view of Jon's bike... and the new Givis. They look pretty good on the Vee.
