Blue Ridge Mountain Rd - August 5, 2007, 08:38 AM

So I was out riding yesterday for a few hours and decided to hit Blue Ridge Mountain Rd for the first time. Just a warning, going northbound on it is absolute shit compared to the southbound side. There was a huge pile of gravel, an asphalt "patch" in one of the turns that nearly highsidded me, and tree limbs sticking into the road.

Heh. I think we heard you going by. This is the road that Chris hit his deer on.
All of your listed reasons are why I go slow on country roads. These roads are great and scenic, but gravel, dogs, deer, trees, cinderblocks, etc. are always found on country roads like this.
Always be ready for that shit!

God I hate that effing final curve going southbound. It always seems to sneak up on me.

I was stuck behind a fat tire Harley on the last part, so we took that curve at less than 10

I don't know why, but I seem to miss Chis' driveway at least twice every time I ride up. I don't mind waiting the three minutes to find a place to turn around though...

I like the fact that I have to ride that road every day. Not much Choice I live on it. But I have to warn everybody that the natives are getting restless up here about the speeds at which some people a travelling being too high. Aside from the weekend sight seer and the fat tire hog, most people don't obey the 40mph speed limit.I agree though, that it is much more fun that way.
And as Pokey mentioned the south bound right hander surprises alot of people. Unfortunately it is right by my house and I have witness a couple of deaths from that turn.

So I guess my point is have fun but stay alert up here.

And If anyone does have a problem up here and they know where I live please look me up. I may be around to help!
