No offense taken - us locals try to avoid the interstates and use the surface roads but at rush hours you simply cannot avoid Atlanta's clogged roads. Now that the economy has picked up the issues are even worse.

Yes Atlanta traffic is bad but have you been to DC or Charlotte lately?

Looks like you are going right by the Barber Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham. If so do not miss it.

Ditto on Barber's. Been there several times, probably the most amazing bike museum in the world. Plan on staying there most of the day.

Suggested stop

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.
Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground

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.


Bikes: (1971 to present) Honda Benly C92 125cc, Honda CB350 twin, Norton Commando Fastback 750 cc, Honda CB750F1, Honda CB900F, Honda CB250RS, Honda ST1100, Honda ST1300, BMW K1600GTL (Dark Graphite).
