I am a Brit living in NC since 1989. Been biking since 1970 and done a lot of miles in the NC mountains.
If you do the Blue Ridge Parkway then consider taking the NC276 northish (which is s superb ride in itself) to the Blue Ridge Motorcycle campground in Cruso, NC. They keep an immaculate space and have a number of very basic cabins as well as camping space. They cook full breakfast in the morning and an evening meal. A great start and finish to a full ride day.

If you do the NC Blue Ridge, consider going up to the top of Mount Mitchell (there's a restaurant up there for lunch). There are also spectacular stopping points all along the BR Parkway.
