2009 East 50 motorcycle trip

It was great accomplishing some of the rides I've thought about doing for years.

US50 was fun and interesting to ride. Would I ride to the coast again? No. But I'd ride to Winchester again.

If I could only ride part of the Blue Ridge Parkway I'd start at Boone, NC, and ride south.

Silver cars and cars with Florida plates...why are they so slow?

Washington DC would be a nice place to visit with preplanning.

When planning future trips we'll come home on Saturday. It's nice to have Sunday to catch up.

No bike issues at all.

Great weather and very little rain. Can't beat it. Temperatures ranged from the upper 50's to lower 80's.

I still wish my brother would have went...and I still give him hell for not going.

The Pigeon Forge cabins have never disappointed.

Mike saw a raccoon on the porch one night, but it never returned to visit like they have in the past.

Track logs from the trip here.

Mike wants to know where we're going next. I'll have to decide. Stay tuned!

See you on the Highway!
