I have no experience with the BRP, but it sounds like a great trip. We have some maxi scoot riders on the forum so they should be able to help with general bike touring stuff. We want pics uploaded daily during your voyage!

Get on the Skyline Drive at Front Royal VA and run all the way to Waynesboro VA.
At Waynsboro VA get on the Blue Ridge Parkway and keep going all the way to Cherokee NC.
Expect to take a week for just that part of the trip to skim the surface of what's there. There are lots of stops and overlooks and things to see and do.
I have only done it in late September/early October, but expect cool weather on part of the ride. The elevation on the parkway is over 6000 feet in places. For me last September it was a cool crisp fall day in Asheville NC when I left my sister's place, but it turned into a cold, damp, foggy, soggy day at 5-6000 feet on the blueridge.
At that time of year the traffic is nearly non-existent. Let us know what it's like during prime tourist season.
