Rusty had some USAir dividend miles (http://www.usairways.com/awa/content/dividendmiles/default.aspx) that were going to expire by March 1st so he asked if I wanted to use them. We looked at California, but all destinations were blocked out, Nevada - all blocked out, Colorado - all blocked out, then we found Tennessee, but we settled on Richmond, Viriginia (http://www.ci.richmond.va.us/). Why Richmond when Tennessee would have been prefered? Well the idea is to rent motorcycles and all that was available in Tennessee were Harley Davidsons, which we are not interested in. So Richmond it is because there we were able to rent a Yamaha FJR 1300 (http://www.yamaha-motor.com/sport/products/modelhome/180/home.aspx) and a BMW 1200 GS (http://www.motorcycle.com/specs/bmw/on-off-road/2009/r/1200-gs.html).
The airline tickets are booked and we rented the motorcycles throug AdMo-Tours (http://www.admo-tours.com/). We depart Miami on June 18th and return on the 23rd. The plan is that we will ride the entire Blue Ridge Parkway (http://www.nps.gov/blri/ or http://www.blueridgeparkway.org/) and take in the sights.
Anybody else want to ride? Let us know. Next update in June !
