What a trip taking things steady and taking in the spectacular scenery
Nice relaxing ride
Map doesn't show very clearly but take the 56 to the Blue Ridge Parkway between Steeles Tavern and Swannanoa (nr Waynesboro), some good twisties here.
Metz to Verdun is a great piece of French country road rolling hills and open plains just the place to get the revs up come to think of it the Germans seem to like it as well they come through here at great speed especially in 1914 and 1940! Verdun is a must for military history
Nice run around North Yorks ideal for Adventure bikes, some of this is on single track roads with a few gates thrown in (tip leave your bike in gear engine off to avoid roll overs when you get off), there is also some nice "progressive" A roads (A682 & A59) and the notional start point is Skipton Castle - worth a visit if you like old things. You could turn right at Ingleton and head north to Kirby Lonsdale fora brew at Devils Bridge or head on into the Lake District. If you are on a Sports bike avoid the leg to Dent and carryon past the Ribblehead viaduct - your kidneys will thank you. The Dent leg has a mini version of the Ribblehead viaduct nice photo oppertunity and probably has less people around when Steam traisn are running - if thats of interest to you.
