Just wanted to say Thanks to SeaMarshal and johedrick.

Thanks for the suggestions to go to Seneca Rock WV. What a beautiful part of the country. Wife and I left friday 20th and stayed in Elkins for the weekend. Some incredible roads to ride outs there. I picked up Rte 250 out of Dover-New Philadelphia Ohio. Took it all the way to Rte 33 just outside of Elkins. Rte 250 from Moundsville WV to Fairmount is not for the weak. Only the passenger gets the view.


Rte 250 is a great ride if you want the centerstand to get a workout from time to time. I left some of it a few times on a very well paved and taken care of road.

Kudos to WV Roads. Michigan needs to take a clue from them.


Gonna go again in the Fall if any Riders in the Region care to join let me know.


Have a great day. Paul

Just came back from Cass and rode the Steam Locomotive and stayed in Cass. We rode over to New River Gorge Bridge on one day and nice ride. All the driving there is grade and twisties, and switchbacks. NOT for the faint of heart. We stopped at Seneca Rock as my friend has done the clime. We stopped at the outfitter there on the way from Cass. Only issue is you have to watch the gravel in the corners.


Hope word don't get out as it has the Dragon beat all to Hell in amount of corners and testing riding skill, and shear amount of fun.

In truth it is what convinced me to give up my HD and go to a BMW as that is what I was chasing for 1200 miles. I just worked too hard compared to my friends BMW. :p

During the past several spring breaks from school, I have taken my son on a motorcycle trip. Last year, at age 14, we rode and camped in West Virgina. One day was the ying and the yang day, we first rode to Seneca Rocks then headed back down to the bridge across New River and rode to the bottom of the gorge. One of the most fun days I have had in my life. If you go to the bridge you must ride to the bottom of the gorge, there are two nearly vertical switch backs. A friend was with us on a Gold Wing and when he saw us disappear in front of his eyes. He stopped his bike. After he figured out what it was he realized there was no turning back. When we got to the bottom he went on and on about how he couldn't imagine how I could have disappeared like that riding two up and towing the Unigo. I had the knowledge of having ridden the rode several times. Absolutely worth a visit.

We did the Cass train ride about 10 years ago. Loved riding down around there too. Those loose stones on the roads made you stay in your lane around the courners, that's for sure.

My backyard

Grew up in southern WV and went to college up north in Morgantown, WV. Did all of my early riding all over the state and thought that everyone had those type of roads. Really do miss the hills living in Florida. Yes, Yes, Yes, you really do have to be careful of gravel in the turns. My only fall occurred in a curve, going too fast, leaning to make it and BAM, gravel and dirt. Layed it down and slid over a hill. Luckily just a very little road rash. Yep, I really do miss the days....... Honda 350 and a Honda 450........
