Yep. Most of us stay at the Skyline Village Inn: http://www.skylinevillageinn.com. It's a cool old hotel with a lot of history, a decent restaurant, and a very good craft beer selection in the store. It's right at the junction of 226a and 226b, so whichever way you turn when you leave the parking lot, you're immediately in the twisties, and it's only ~100 yards from the Blue Ridge Parkway.



(hotel location is near the upper right of this map)

It was a bit chilly on the ride this past weekend. That's ice on the saddle.

Don't know. It was that way when I got it. I traded an old jeep I had for the bike and it had been all streeted out several owners ago. Slowly fixing that, but other more important issues require $ first. I will however happily accept parts donations lol, have been looking for a beak and lower fenders for it. Other more horrifying things had been done to it, but I fixed most of that already.

It was 800 miles one-way. The last 5 hours we had to carry our own fuel. The bike coughed and sputtered for a little bit. I attribute it to low quality gas (thats all you could get at the top). Saw some moose and the ravage left behind from forest fires, and lots of bugs.
