Did a blue ridge ride last month, beautiful ride. Hoping to find a nice warm riding jacket and get back up there while we still have highs in the 50s.

Thanks for the great video. The BRP has been on our bucket list for a couple years now, and we're aiming to go in 2019. Ideally we would run into less traffic than on the video, if that could be done. What's the best time to go?

Weekdays. Not in the fall. Not during rainy season. I have done the entire length numerous times on different bikes and a Pontiac Solstice Roadster, and have done sections of the BRP many more times. Never grow tired of that road. If you want a real challenge, the roads that wind around the BRP are curvier with 55 mph speed limits that only the most agile machine and skilled operator can achieve.

One other thing to add...be prepared for the drop in temps, weather changes and fog/clouds when riding the BRP. It might be clear and 80 degrees at ground level, but once you get up on the mountains there can be easily a 10-15 degree temp drop, along with fog or low clouds & misty. Also check out Little Switzerland Inn, its the only hotel directly on the BRP and very motorcycle friendly.
