#backroads #yamaha #Vstar : 5 hours. 240 miles.


Took 11, 178, 64 to 215 (Blue Ridge Parkway) to 19 into Maggie Valley, home of the Wheels Thru Time museum. “Wheels” is a cool place to check out if you’re into history of motorcycles, cars…even the engines of that time. Neat thing about all the bikes on display is that they maintain them to actually run. They’re happy to start them up too.

We were uncomfortably cold and overcast until the BRP, then beauty and sunshine. I misjudged the weather and was expecting the warmth and sun to come out sooner. Spray from the previous night’s rain and the 50 degree temps were a bit unpleasant for my gear.

Early morning ride through the legendary “Dragon’s Tail” planned for tomorrow. 318 twisty turns in 11 miles.
