2 Nights Mountain Lake Lodge, one night The Old Jail, one night the Francis Marion Hotel.
I will be attending the kickoff event of Colorado Motorcycle Adventures expansion to Phoenix, AZ April 1-4. We will depart from Phoenix on April 1 to spend the next 4 days riding paved and unpaved routes basing out of Bisbee. We have used Colorado Motorcycle Adventures on several of our past trips when riding in Colorado. I will be renting a BMW R1250 GS Adventure for the rides.
This is a 137 mile loop ride based out of Bearwaters Brewery in Canton, NC. It runs north on some nice twisty paved roads, then enters the Pisgah National Forest on generally well maintained forest roads. It crosses into Tennessee, then loops back with sections that skirt Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Under development. Working south to north from intersection with SCAR.
1000 mile loop from the beach to the mountains in South Carolina. Roughly 40% paved / 60% off pavement, I plan to do this moderately challenging route at a leisurely pace in order to thoroughly record, photograph, and film the experience and produce a well curated route for public use on Miles-by-Motorcycle. As I'll want both electricity and internet service at night, as well as time to manage all the data collected during the day, accommodations will be in hotels, preferably nice ones, with food and drink either on site or in walking distance to save time. The route will be done from north-to-south then beach to mountains. Start / End point will wither be Franklin, NC or Brevard.

Plan B - This is an alternative to our New England Ride Plan for 2020 which was not possible due to travel closures in several states. This trip will take us up and down the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Skyline Drive in stages then into north central Pennsylvania. Side trips into West Virginia are planned along the way. As it's towards the end of June when thunderstorms are common in the afternoons I've kept the daily mileage low.
Riding the Mid Atlantic Backcountry Discovery Route early May 2020 to test and launch the new Miles By Motorcycle Software.
Yermo Lamers and Wayne Busch will traverse the 1082 mile mixed route from bottom to top as the initial field test of the new Miles By Motorcycle platform. The goal is to test and tweak the software if needed, document the route as we go and share photos, video, and our experiences on social media, record the road characteristics marking paved / unpaved / easy / difficult sections, water crossings, and such, and have fun riding together.

A lunch ride from Waynesville, NC to The Chalet Restaurant at the Switzerland Inn in Little Switzerland, NC. The Bulk of the ride is on the Blue ridge Parkway passing through Asheville, NC. Hoping they've got some fresh lobster at the Inn, the Tacos are great!
I'm spending the week mapping south of Snowshoe, WV to Tazwell, VA centered on Beckley. Cell service will be rare so I'll mostly post from the bar in the evenings. I'm exploring and rating the roads for two new maps of the area.
Riding roads for map updates in VA and WV.
I need to hit a scattering of roads in NE Georgia spanning both new maps. I'll start at the west end and work east.
A post hurricane ride - I hope. Anniversary at the Lodge.
This ride takes us from home in Waynesville, NC through Asheville to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The second best section of the park road is north of Asheville as it climbs to pass the highest mountain in the east then rolls along the ridge tops on a slow descent to Little Switzerland.
Just a ride, destination will be wherever we end up. More testing of the ride plans to make improvements.
This is the most common loop ride done with "The Rattler" - NC 209. It starts and ends at Junaluska covering about 100 miles. This is one of the best Blue Ridge Mountain riding experiences with mountain climbs, beautiful valleys, a nice mix of easy and challenging terrain, historic places and sights, lots of stops, and great scenery.
US 276 and NC 215 are two of the finest motorcycle rides you’ll find. The Copperhead Loop ride links them using US 64 through Brevard. You'll enjoy wonderfully twisty roads, waterfalls, and intersect the Blue Ridge Parkway at two points.
This 43 mile section is the best of the 491 mile long ride. It's the highest, the most scenic and has more overlooks to enjoy it.
"There are more Great Motorcycle Rides in the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains than Anywhere Else!
