Waynesboro to Stecoah along the Blue Ridge Parkway
Blue Ridge Parkway
Riding the Blue Ridge Parkway
This road has the reputation of being one of the best in the United States and motorcyclists are also attracted by the Blue Ridge Parkway as a nail to a magnet.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is more than 750 kilometers and is a succession of curves and breathtaking views. These are just a few reasons why hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists ride the Blue Ridge Parkway every year.
There are many small parking places where you can stop to admire the view, take a picture and stretch your legs. With some there is also an opportunity to drink and / or eat.

I have marked some with an RP;
RP4; Bobblets Gap
RP6; Roanoke River
RP7; Devils Back Bone
RP9; Rock castle
RP11; Chateau Morrisette and Winery
RP12; Mabry Mill
RP21; Rough Ride Overlook
RP23; Linville Waterfalls
RP24; Green Knob Overlook
RP25; Mount Mitchell, the highest point of the Parkway
RP28; Cold mountain view
RP29; Pounding Mill Overlook
RP30; Herrin Knob Overlook
RP32; Wheels through Time Motorcycle Museum

Along the route there are many picnic areas, camping and accommodation options and attractions, such as museums etc.
There are no gas stations on this route, for that you have to get rid of the route at one of the many intersections with the US and State Highways. In the first link (Ride the Blue ridge Parkway information) you will find more detailed information especially for motorcyclists.

The end point of this route is at RP36; Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge and Resort, from where you can ride several beautiful rides such as the Tail of the Dragon and the Cherohala Skyway (see last link)

I have not been able to drive this route yet, but given the many responses to various motorcycle forums, this is certainly a 5 star route.

About this region
North Carolina ( (listen)) is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. North Carolina is the 28th largest and 9th-most populous of the 50 United States. It is bordered by Virginia to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Georgia and South Carolina to the south, and Tennessee to the west. Raleigh is the state's capital and Charlotte is its largest city. The Charlotte metropolitan area, with an estimated population of 2,569,213 in 2018, is the most-populous metropolitan area in North Carolina, the 23rd-most populous in the United States, and the largest banking center in the nation after New York City. The Raleigh metropolitan area is the second-largest metropolitan area in the state, with an estimated population of 1,362,540 in 2018, and is home to the largest research park in the United States, Research Triangle Park. North Carolina was established as a royal colony in 1729 and is one of the original Thirteen Colonies. North Carolina is named in honor of King Charles I of England who first formed the English colony, with Carolus being Latin for "Charles". On November 21, 1789, North Carolina became the 12th state to ratify the United States Constitution. In the run-up to the American Civil War, North Carolina declared its secession from the Union on May 20, 1861, becoming the last of eleven states to join the Confederate States. Following the Civil War, the state was restored to the Union on June 25, 1868. On December 17, 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright successfully piloted the world's first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft at Kill Devil Hills in North Carolina's Outer Banks. North Carolina uses the slogan "First in Flight" on state license plates to commemorate this achievement, alongside a newer alternative design bearing the slogan "First in Freedom" in reference to the Mecklenburg Declaration. North Carolina is defined by a wide range of elevations and landscapes. From west to east, North Carolina's elevation descends from the Appalachian Mountains to the Piedmont and Atlantic coastal plain. North Carolina's Mount Mitchell at 6,684 feet (2,037 m) is the highest-point in North America east of the Mississippi River. Most of the state falls in the humid subtropical climate zone; however, the western, mountainous part of the state has a subtropical highland climate.
