Sweet Roads I grew up in Roanoke, VA and rode alot on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I actualy rode my fastest and most idiotic ride on their on a friends GS1100E that was just reconverted back to a street bike after being used as a drag bike. Somewhere around way to fast to say when I backed off the throttle and told my self that was fun but crazy. The roads between Highway 220 heading North are truley amazing to ride. Their are numerous Waterfalls off the shoulder that you can check out and if you ever get the chance stop by Peaks Of Otter (Milepost 85.6 Peaks of Otter Lodge, Campground, Visitor Center, Restaurant, Gift Shop and Picnic Area) great food and you will not believe the views from the top of the mountian which you can hike up. That is the one thing I truly miss about home.
