First multi day 2 upper

Recommended Posts

Went from Raleigh to Meadows of Dan Va. Camped and rode from there to Shady Valley TN by way of Blue Ridge Parkway South to 18 south to Sparta to 21/221 west and then 88 to the snake 421. After blasting around the snake 2 up mind you went 133 to 58 west all the way back. Got a little rain but had some pull offs with cover twice. Got real lucky. Mouth of Wilson had more water on the road than I ever seen. I was really impressed of the GT with a passenger. Mind you I only weigh 160 no gear and the wife 120. (I’ll say that for my own safety). My wife didn’t complain at all. The FZ she would have, well has. Great ride. I didn’t take as many pics because I’ve done this ride numerous times. Not 2 up though.

I live for roads like that, uphill or downhill it doesn't matter, in fact a lot of times I will turn around and ride it in both directions!  😎

Guess I'm going to have to make a run up to Shady Valley (had to google map it since I'd never even heard of it) when I get back to Knoxville.

Looks like y'all had fun. Shady Valley is one of my favorite areas to ride.


I like Guns...
