Blue Ridge Parkway could get an update

June 17, 2008 by · Comments Off on Blue Ridge Parkway could get an update 

ROCKY KNOB — Either the mountains are getting harder, or the people who spend vacation time in them are getting softer.

Consider the plight of officials at the Blue Ridge Parkway: Faced with a public increasingly seeking a cushier mountaintop experience, the National Park Service is considering a makeover for the venerable linear park that would bring more air conditioning to its lodges, along with telephones and televisions.

Primitive campgrounds along the 469-mile scenic drive would begin offering electricity to campers to power their microwaves. And new paved trails in the surrounding woods would accommodate visitors who prefer bike rides on asphalt to rugged hikes over roots and rocks.

An incredible feeling of freedom

June 17, 2008 by · Comments Off on An incredible feeling of freedom 

Motorcycle Freedom Ask a motorcyclist to explain the lure of seeing the world from an exposed perch astride two wheels and you’re bound to get an answer more philosophical than literal.

Great Looking Suffolk Scoot – The Kilby Deuce

June 16, 2008 by · Comments Off on Great Looking Suffolk Scoot – The Kilby Deuce 

Kilby Deuce
“I had a plan in my early twenties to build a V-twin based motorcycle that wasn’t already seen scootin’ around town on a daily basis. I wanted something different, I wanted to build it and I didn’t want to go into debt doing it. I was first inspired by a bike Carey Hart rode in a Crusty Demons of Dirt video a dozen or so years ago. Shortly thereafter I cracked open my first catalog to check out frames, motors, wheels and such, just to quickly learn that all the components were priced to the moon (my opinion, of course). I was discouraged and pissed that my plan to own or build such a bike would fail before it started, due to the anemic state of my bank account.”
