Checked it our Friday

The campground is still there, nice sites on a stream, vault toilets. The "billboard" with camping rules, etc is up to date. Nice spot, Fire Road leaves the North end of the campground and goes to the BRP.

I confirmed the KOA on Route 130, just east of the BRP, in Amherst County is under new ownership! Good news, and a great location with full amenities.

Just got back from a four day trip out to western Virginia, at Hungry Mother State Park and all the awsome roads around there.

Pure Heaven!

Riding the real "Back of the Dragon" (there's even signs now!) Route 16 North out of Marion to Tazewell. Newly paved!



Up on Whitetop Mtn. the second highest in VA



At a lookout pull off on the Blue Ridge Parkway, just south of Roanoke.



Hey, get away from my bike!

Amherst County, Intersection of RT60 and SR 635 (North Fork Road), three miles north on 635.

Would have posted a map, but google maps was fighting me and I'm going out riding....

Gave my "new" Sportster its first real run:

I rode out to Roanoke Friday to meet up with an old friend from Harrisonburg. Had a great time and rode back here yesterday. It was VERY windy and on the chilly side, but I'm very pleased with the bike. Ran like a swiss watch the whole time. Harley actually builds a pretty good product ...
This is on 460 somewhere when I pulled over to take a leak

New area rider here. I just got my license (just completed the Basic Ride Course today) and am looking forward to picking up the R1200GS Rallye that I already own from the dealer whenever the first non-stormy day after Monday is.

Congrats! are you a new rider, like never been on the road before? That 1200GS Rallye is a lot of bike. Just take it slow and ride within your comfort level. Great bike and chosing ADVRider to hang out is a premium choice!

See you out there sometime.
