Well, Bikers' Week in Gettysburg went fine, as did driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway and visiting Roanoke, Floyd and Harrisonburg, Virginia. Here are two recommended Bed & Breakfasts:
Battlefield Bed & Breakfast (Gettysburg, Pa.). Puts you right where the action was.
By the Side of the Road (Harrisonburg, Va.). A very friendly and well-run place.
