Re: West Virginia Trip
We had a similar trip to that area last year, I think you will find it to be a great place to be on a motorcycle!! We stayed over near Dunmore (on WV 28) in a little campground that had some motel rooms and a couple of cabins, it was nice! a very quiet area (partly because of the Green Bank observatory) we found the roads to be in good condition and not too busy with traffic, in general unless you are near a town the size Beckley you will find that corporate America is conspicious in it's absence, we found great momma poppa restaraunts, hotels, and other businesses to supply our needs. All of the area on the east side of WV along the mountain ridges is perfect motorcycle riding places to visit might include the Green Bank Observatory, Snowshoe Mountain Resort, Cass Scenic Railway, The New River Gorge, check out the Greenbrier Resort (very exclusive neighborhood), if you are a golfer there are some of the nations top rated courses in WV and if you are not a golfer you can watch and wonder at others who play there, the courses are just beautiful.
For us just being in the mountains and on the winding roads is a vacation in itself, a word of caution though, wildlife is plentiful here especially around sundown pay attention and ride carefully!! Have a great time and unless I miss my guess you will enjoy the ride immensely!
