I just received my 9 map set in the mail yesterday. Great info, gas, hotels, roads. The whole Southeast only $46, there are so many side roads to ride it would take a year of weekends to ride them all. I can understand with you being in Mn. you may not use them but once, heres my advice, take it or leave, doesn't matter to me one way or the other. Myself and 3 guys from work rode the whole ride last year, Skyline Drive at Front Royal, Va, all the way down to Blue Ridge Parkway and on to Cherokee NC where the BRP ends or starts depending on your point of view. It took us about 6 days, we didn't do any side trips until after we ended in Cherokee, (Dragon and a few others). If you only plan on riding the parkway with no side trips, you don't need the maps, get a brochure and map of BRP online or almost anywhere. However, if you want to include some side trips, the purchase price of the maps are well worth it, it shows places to stay, motorcycle shops, motorcycle friendly places and most important, where the gas stations are on the side roads because the Parkways have no gas stops or any commercial stops of any kind for important things, like food. To sum it up, if your staying on the Parkway, getting off at larger towns and cities to stay the night, you don't need the maps. If your going to take some side trips for some even greater riding, get the maps. It is a beautiful ride, some people say the Southern half has more twist turns and hills, which is true, but its all beautiful to see. Just for clarification, I don't work for or know the people that own Americaridesmaps. I did get my maps in about 3 days. Enjoy the ride.
