It as awesome to live in mountains of SW Virginia!! Took an after dinner ride last night on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Fabulous evening. Temperature around 70F and ZERO traffic. Gotta love the 270 degree sweeping turns on nice pavement. Anyway, here's a few photos of my Monster 1200 S with 460 miles on the odometer.

Very cool. This past Saturday my dad and I rode up 8 from Winston Salem to Stuart and cut across 58 to the BRP. We took a break at Lovers Leap on 58 then hit the BRP at Meadows of Dan and rode back to Fancy Gap and back down 52. It was a fun ride but I wish we had run 8 all the way to Tuggle Gap and got on the BRP there and rode down. I'm sure Mabry Mill was packed on Saturday though.

Cool shots! Beautiful bike!
I just had my M750 at the same places on the BRP a few weeks ago.
Also, Rt. 16 from Marion to Tazewell ("Back of the Dragon") is a great ride, I did that just this past Monday (Memorial Day).

Mirwin, nice to meet you, where are you in the NRV? Rt. 16 is on my to-do list, and I hope to do it soon.

I live in Dublin, but I ride all around the area. I'm in Blacksburg pretty frequently and occasionally ride with the VT motorcycle club.
Totally jealous of your new Monster 1200 S!
