My F13 6er has less rear legroom than a 1 Series, and the drive is > 8.5 hours, so Yukon it is.

We're going to do the downtown Greenville thing the day before the course. Figure it'll be a nice break between the drive up there and the 2-day course.

Thanks for the recommendations, guys!
Actually, the Blue Ridge Parkway is a good route even in a SUV. While the road winds through the mountains, the curves and turns are not sharp like the Tail of The Dragon. It was designed to be senic not a driver's challenge.
