Thanks for the great pix and report.
Just another 2 cents from a Virginia local that I mention for others who might be planning trips down here:
Skyline drive: B+
Designed for geezers in large slow cars. More cars than bikes, more limited views, the views mostly all look alike, 35 mph speed limit that is enforced
Blue Ridge Parkway: A+++
Seems like it is designed for motorcycles. More views and more varied views, more bikes than cars, 45mph speed limit that's more like 50. It just feels right on a motorcycle.
When I cross I64 from north to south, it's like getting released from a claustrophic small space into the whole wide world. Open up that throttle!

Nice, Doug! You came through my home area stomping grounds. Give a shout (pm) should you decide to come this way again.

Thanks for checking it out. Not sure when I'll make it back down there, but when I do, I'l have a couple more days and do the BRP too.
