Heading out in a few days with a good friend to ride through the Blue Ridge with a destination of the BMW Off Road School near Spartanburg SC. Another friend from the left coast is meeting us down there to attend the school as well. You can read about our last epic adventure here when we tackled the MA BDR. We picked up Seth's bike for the trip at BMW North America's HQ last week. It is a beauty! Very cool campus there. Easy to see where the $$ for these vehicles goes... I will be on my much loved and traveled '15 KTM 1290 Super Adventure We are heading out from Ithaca NY on Wednesday morning. Weather actually looks good for our trip down. Yeah, I know should not have said that... The plan is 3 days down, secondary roads all the way, Skyline Drive, Blue Ridge Parkway, meet Doug, BMW Off Road School, 3 days ride back through the Smokeys and Blue Ridge. Twisty Roads, local food, adult beverages and some MotoEducation. What could be better? Stay tuned for lots of pix, random thoughts and an in-depth review of the school. Does that mean that a KTM 1290 SA and BMW R1250GS are officially Dad bikes???
