NEW BIKE for me

I just bought a 07 RTP to go with the 00 LT (140K miles). I fly/ride to VA next week, so I'll be in the 'other' forum learning from them, as I have from many of you

My question, I have a little time to ride from Richmond, VA to Chicago. What roads would you take, not for speed, but to enjoy the new ride. I'm thinking of enjoying WV roads, then heading to Cincinnati and picking up the interstate from there.

Thoughts?

Anyone else have advice for RTP?

Thanks

Dave

I rode route 26 through the Wayne National Forest in southern Ohio from Marietta up to Woodsfeild and it is a very nice ride.
