Ride Next Week

I'm planning on riding from Myrtle Beach, SC to Detroit next week and have mapquested the route which shows I-77 to Cleveland and on over to Detroit. Just wondered if anyone had any other suggestions on alternative routes that include good scenery and twisty roads? I hate to do the whole interstate deal and I know there are some great roads through West Virginia. I taking two days to get there so I don't have to be in a big hurry.

Re: Ride Next Week

Coming back from 9-11 on my 2001 Yamaha FZ1, totally pissed off after getting bombed with airplanes, and took nothing but backroads all the way from D.C. to Detroit.

I went thru the G.Washington national forest and ended up on rt 250 thru WV and Ohio, what a nice ride. take it all the way up into Ohio, but at some point, you'll have to jump I-75 North to get to detroit from toledo. I just did that road last month and they have improved the highway big time.

Normally about 550-600 mile ride on the xways, I think it was about 750 miles total doing the route above, about 2 days riding.
