This is a great weekend getaway! Leave on a Friday Morning. There are several other varations to this route if you so inclined to choose them. However there is a lot to see on this route as well. Starting out on Hwy 29N to Concord NC you can stop by and see The Dale Earnhardt Statue in Kannapolis NC or Visit D.E.I on Rt3 formerly Hwy 136. Continue North on Hwy-601 to Salisbury and visit the NC Dept. of Tranportation Museum. Yous can stop and see the Richard Petty Museum in Level Cross or the Victory Junction Gang Camp for kids.

This is a great ride. "Mayberry" and "Mt Pilot" or Mt Airy and Pilot Mountain are beautiful. There are several B&B's in the area to stay if your riding with your wife or girlfriend. I reccomend the Maxwell House right across from the Andy Griffith Museum. Check out Snappy Lunch on Mainstreet and get the porkchop sandwich. Get there early or you'll be waiting in line. Check out Floyd's Barber Shop. Plan to spend the day. there is also a great winery in the Meadows of Dan off the Blue Ridge Parkway called Chateau Morrisette.If you follow this complete route stay Saturday night at Station's Inn (Hwy 18 & BRP) this is an old Esso station that has been converted to a Restaurant/Bar & Motel it is very cool and Biker Friendly. They show biker movies on the side of the old garage. Call first for a reservation because they sellout quickly from spring thru fall. If they are sold out there is a B&B about 3 miles from them called Burgiss Bed & Breakfast they also have a winery on premises a really great place to stay. Tom & Nancy are great.
