Rumor Busted - No Motorcycles on the Parkway?

The Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation shared a post yesterday about a rumor that's been circulating. The false rumor claimed that the Foundation was circulating a petition to have restricted access for motorcycles on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Based on our experience with the Foundation we know this to be untrue! Read more about it here and check out info for getting a specialty license plate for your motorcycle to support the Parkway.
