I get on the BRP north of Asheville N.C. and it is a great road to ride. Light traffic and easy going scenery. After a while we end up in the mountians and before long you are actually ridiing through the clouds. 90+ degrees for the forcast but along the parkway a comfortable cool that my light jacket is perfect for.
About 200 miles of riding ended up past the Virginia state line and the connection to the interstate for the ride to get home before dark. (and beat the rain)
I highy recommend to anyone to ride the BRP if you get the chance.
