To all Burgpeople,

I would appreciate any advice,infomation or suggestions,on riding the Blue Ridge Parkway.I will be trailering my an400 toRichmond VA for a family wedding on Sept17. On Sept20 my wife and I would begin our touring by a combination of trailering and scooting.

Many Thanks,

Jerry, Do your touring during the week, because the parkway is always busy on the weekends. I've been down it in a car, but can't wait to get on my scoot and go the full length. Have a great time, it is beautiful down there.

I just did the entire Blue Ridge and it took us two looong days. All the above info is very good. There are a few places for gas but be safe and have a full tank before you start. Take your time and watch out for those people in cars. I found some where too busy looking at the sights and not the road. The weather conditions will very from hot to cold, from clouds to no clouds. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

Not necessarily! My scooter club just did a run of the Parkway from Glendale Springs, NC up into VA somewhere last weekend - a round trip ride of about 170 miles and did we have a blast!! The majority of vehicles we saw were of the two wheel type - mostly Triumph's, Ducati's, BMW's and other European bikes - just a few Harley's. Our group totalled 14 scooters - mostly Vespa GT/ET4's, but also Honda's, Aprilia's and my 400. Even though there was quite a bit of traffic, the Federal 45 MPH kept things pretty mellow.

Definitely keep a full tank and couple of bottles of water with you - not a lotta rest stops on the way, and don't forget the camera!!
