Anywhere west of Greenville 64 is pretty much a boring straight road.
As with all east west roads, avoid riding with the sun in your eyes late or early.
From Raleigh to Mocksville you will either pass on double yellow lines or you will go very slow, lots of trucks and slow drivers, especially mornings and evenings.

Great road with lots of great riding.
I have rode 64 from Statesville all the way to the Outer Banks and loved almost every mile of it.
64 offers up everything from scenic country riding with wide sweeping turns through some great farmland and forest areas that lazily runs through many small communities with lots of interesting stops along the way, to some wide open throttle super slab running through Raleigh.
If you get a chance to ride 64 in this area you'll be pleased with your trip.

If you are in the NC Triangle area, this is a nice relaxed way to head out to the mountains.
Once you get west of Asheboro, you've got a truck-free 2-lane cruise through the mid and upper Piedmont.
Great scenery, more than enough food and gas, and plenty of connections to some of the best twisties in the East.

Beware of this road if you can't go 100 miles on a tank of gas.
This is a stretch of desolate road that runs thru the marsh lands south of the Outter Banks in North Carolina.
Do not stop on this road unless you have to.
The misquitoes and green head flies will eat you alive before you get your kickstand down.
Make sure you get gas before starting this trek.
It is beautiful in it's own right, but you must be prepared.
This is a major 'link' if you ever decide to do the Carolina Ferry system (most are free for motorcycles).

Pretty good road.
The run through Alligator Alley is great early in the summer, late in the spring.
Watch for the turtles.
The bridges are cold that time of the year.
The ferry system is great.
Take the coast road south to ferrys that go to Morehead.
Morehead fishing.....Missing it right now.
