Solo Ride through VA and NC

Decided to take off on a solo ride yesterday from Roanoke, VA. Rode 316 miles and included trips to Smokin HD (Winston Salem, NC), Riding High HD (Greensboro, NC), and Thunder Road HD (Danville, VA). Since I was solo I didnt take pics except when I stopped at some dealers. Here are some for those interested. This is a little different than my normal back roads, great view kind of trip/pics.

I think I brought home about half the bugs in NC though.

Great trip and pictures. Haven't been to those dealers, but love the dragon painted on the building.

Yea that dealer just moved to that building about a year ago. I am about 1hr 45 min away from there, and use to stop in the old store about 10 minutes up the road when passing through. I thought it was a sweet graphic too.

Yea the white definitely collects some added color on the long rides in the summer.

That looks like a great trip. BTW I live in Monroe NC about 2 hours from Riding High HD. They are the best dealer I have ever dealt with. I bought my 2018 RGS there and ended up driving back to get my wife's 2018 SGS there as well. Passed 4 dealers to get to them. Good people there.
