June 18, 2009

We were up at 5am today and at the airport by 6am for our 7:45am depature (on USAir http://www.usairways.com) to Richmond, Virginia, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richmond,_Virginia) with a change of plane in Philadelphia. We arrived in Richmond right around 1pm and on our way to grab a taxi to drive us to the motorcycle rental shop we came across CMC, a limousine company, (http://www.cmclimo.com/) with a super cost efficient transportation deal so we ended up taking a limo ride for cheaper than what a taxi would have cost us - love it !!!

On arrival at the Eagle Rider rental shop (http://www.eagleridercva.com/) we met with the owner who hooked us up with everything that we needed. Customer service at its best. We ended up departing on the bikes at around 3:30pm.

We had thought that we would be able to ride from Richmond to see the Luray Caverns (http://www.luraycaverns.com/) and then head South to get as near as possible to Grandfather Mountain (http://www.grandfather.com/), but we arrived in Luray around 6:45pm and the caverns close at 7pm, plus Rusty was not feeling well so we naturally chose to call it the day and we checked ourselves into the local Best Western (http://www.bestwesternvirginia.com/hotels/best-western-intown-of-luray/) where I am now updating my travel blog  :o)

We rode a total of only 150 miles today, but rode through some beautiful scenic roads and while crossing through the Shenandoah National Park (http://www.shenandoah.national-park.com/) we found some awesome curvy roads. We are hoping for lots more of those over the next few days.

Well thats all for today. I hope the weather tomorrow will be as nice as it was today - sunny sunny sunny.
