The Blue Ridge Parkway has been a marvelous ride. Very scenic, with nice sweeping turns. I was passed by my first sport bike rider during this stretch. I have friends who ride sport bikes and, to be honest, I have never seen THEM ride. But the ones I have seen always seem to feel a need to ride as fast as they can EVERYWHERE, giving little attention to the speed limits that are intended to keep everyone safe. They miss so much!
