Blue Ridge Parkway, Tail of the Dragon, Cherohala Skyway: June 2019

Three roads are consistently on the top 10 motorcycle rides list – The Blue Ridge Parkway, the Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap, and the Cherohala Skyway

This map shows how connect them.

And that’s exactly what I plan to do in about two weeks!

The ride planning started with two people, grew to five and is now a reasonable three. 

We plan to meet at the top of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia on June 10th and casually make our way to the bottom, in North Carolina, in 3 days. 

We’ll then head to the Tail of the Dragon where we’ll ride both directions before riding over to the Cherohala Skyway in Tennessee. 

Our schedule is flexible and we’re still looking at two more days of riding in Tennessee.  Perhaps the Smokey Mountain Loop or something similar before we all go our separate ways.

And I’m still deciding on whether I’ll take my Triumph Rocket or trusty KLR650.
