Nice Ride Report - me and the wife was riding our BMW's on the BRP from the Smokes up to Front Royal last week - stopped in Floyd for "Floydfest" I'm sure you saw the banner as your road thru town. Man it was hot up on the BRP last week..

Hey Jim, nice report.

If I had to pick a hero, Daniel Morgan would be it.


Did the old folks bless you and the girls kiss you when you got home?

I really like that quote, I couldn't pass up taking a photo of it. With the heat last week the museum tours were welcome, nice AC.

I never knew about US276 going through Caesars Head State Park, what a great ride, it will be on the list when I ride down to the area again!!

That looks like it would be awesome all the way back up to Waynesville.

I don't think I've ridden that one...

LOL! I was one of those people riding southbound looking at the gate with a "deer in the headlight" gaze.

Nice report. I've rode most of those roads with pops on our Southeast Father&Son trip. Ceasers Head is always a blast. Thanks! Look forward to a Fall return.
