Motorcycle maps make parkway sidetrips a breeze

Written by 

A new series of maps designed for motorcycle riders chronicle the side trips and excursions along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The maps identify thousands of miles of classic motorcycle rides that lay beyond the parkway. The routes on the map include mileages and times, scenic spots, points of interest, the best gas stations and motorcycle shops.

The parkway is so long — 469 miles through the mountains of Virginia and North Carolina — that it took seven maps to cover its entire length.

The map series was created by Wayne Busch, who has been riding his bike on the Parkway for 40 years. His maps are the result of years of work — tens of thousands of miles on the motorcycle actually riding, re-riding, exploring, judging and selecting the best of every road in the region.

The complete set is $36.95 or $5.95 for one. Go to the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation’s web site at www.blueridgeparkwaystore.com.

Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
