First solo, multi-day bike trip. I am more nervous than excited. I need to make sure I still have roadside assistance before I leave, just in case. The Plan I live near Asheville, NC. I have ridden to the South end fo the Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP). The plan is to make it to the two northern ends, Mile 0 in Afton, VA, and then on to Skyline Drive from Afton to Front Royal. After that I will head to Harper's Ferry and then head south through WV. No details on that part of the plan. The Brat I made some updates to the bike in preparation for something like this - SWMotech crash bars, GIVI Dolomiti panniers, Arashimoto pegs, EDS blinkers (a beast to install), LED headlight, auxiliary lights, and some new tires. I hope it all stays together, I did the work myself. My primary skill is research [insert nerd emoji]. End day 0.
