Favorite road

What is your favorite road or highway and why? I'd like to thank my good friends Brandon Boyd and Eddie Ellington at Boyd Honda in South Hill, Virginia for this idea.

I’d have to say the Blue Ridge Parkway is my all-time favorite. No other road in America can match its beauty. I also love Highway 181 from Morganton to Linville. It brings back great childhood memories along with glorious scenery. Highway 12 along the coast is another favorite. The Waterfall Byway in the western part of the state offers 98 miles of spectacular scenery. Black Mountain Rag near Asheville is another great ride.
