Blue Ridge Run - 2018

I am a little early getting this thread started.......since we are still 5.5 weeks away from this ride, but I ran across some info that you might find important (from Toney in another thread), since we ride the parkway quite a bit at this rally. Also, if you are thinking or riding the Blue Ridge Parkway anytime soon, this info may want you to go ride it soon. The BRP is going to be chip and sealed in various locations, starting this month. I never noticed it having issues, but there is money to spend.....soooo. Hope it doesn't mess it up. Here is the link: BRP Resurfacing

Now for the good news.........it is time for Blue Ridge Run! We like to bring in the summer with a nice ride up into the cooler temps of the high mountains of North Carolina! We will be back at BRMC, so make sure and get your cabins reserved! Temps are normally 10 degrees cooler in the Cruso area, compared to temps back home. That puts us normally with a high around 80. Our host of the area each year has been mdrake! Thanks for all the input you give to a great weekend! Everyone come out for some great FS roads, Twisty pavement, and great Scenery!

Who: Anyone wanting world class Adventure and Dual Sport riding!
What: Blue Ridge Run
Where:Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground in Cruso,NC
When: June 22-24 (Early Bird -21st)
Why: Because we are about as far east as the mountains go!



Rider...................................Ride...... ..............When............Digs

Looks like you'll miss any construction on the parkway unless you ride north past Asheville. We've been zipping between the Pisgah Inn and Cherokee, eating potato chips at the Inn and Ice Cream in Cherokee. I think all the rain has held the road crew up coming south. There's some signs put up north of 276 but no sign of any work yet. The road surface between 215 an 19 is perfect. From 215 to the Inn there's a few holes and also from 19 to Cherokee but on a KLR you'll hit them on purpose. Be careful and have fun. There's been a few wind up in the guardrails but it's the younger crowd that thinks the crotch rocket can't crash. Hope you get good weather. All we've had is rain so far.

Rain forecast definitely looking better than it did a couple of days ago! Only 1 day above 50%, and all days less than a half an inch. :clap:

No pics or posts about the ride yet? You guys lost in the woods? Do I need to go look for you? If you're lost, follow the creeks

I haven't posted up pics since Photobucket made their account changes, last year. I need to use someone else.
