My Wee, wife and I were on the BRP late yesterday evening. The Parkway was open on the section we rode (from Highway 16-BRP intersection in NC (north of Wilkesboro NC) north about 40 miles - fairly close to Fancy Gap).

Very little traffic on that section. A few bikes. A few cars. We mostly had it to ourselves, but we were riding late - it was getting dark as we got off the Parkway. My wife said she thought some of the Parkway-support buildings might have been closed (not sure about that), but the section of road we were on was open.

Beautiful too. Leaves beginning to fall some but not much color yet.

2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.

2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 43K+. Love it!
