...when travelling the Blueridge Parkway? I have looked and can't seem to find a source that gives distances from point to point on the BRP.

Interesting. By the Interstate route, withouT consulting factual info, Roanoke is about milemark 150 on I81. Going south add maybe 20 moree miles most in TN to the I26 junction. Then maybe 70 miles down I26 to Asheville. So 150 plus 20 plus 70 equals 220. The Parkway is longer , yet is more direct as the crow flies. Would the curves on the Parkway add so many additional miles? CC

Yes. And, if you stay close to the speed limit it will double the travel time. But, we are talking about riding a FJR...
