Where to ride in West Virginia?
 
Coming to West Virginia in a few weeks. What donyounguys recommend to ride? I have a triumph trophy and my brother a Harley road king

I'm familiar with Charleston and the big bridge to jump off near by.

Do I make charleston my base or some other city. Budget is not an issue. Great food a must, but more importantly smooth twisty rolling roads

Thursday thru Sunday ride.
Thank you!

You'll get some good suggestions from the local WV crowd.

Marlinton or points north of there as a base. :deal
Camping? A new base every night.

+1 on Marlinton. If in town on 22-25 AUG. just up the road at Snowshoe COG is having a rally at the Snowshoe Inn. Come hang out with us. No cost and we should have rroute sheets even tho any road round here is great with very little traffic. We are the Concours Owners Group but all brands are welcome. Rooms run about $70 a night.

Hush now. That which must not be named.

I've heard it said that there ain't a bad road in WV... I tend to agree. For a campground I'm biased towards Big Bend campground. They put in showers this year, but in years past the river has sufficed as a wash basin.

If you know what area you will be riding there are more than a few of us who can give you ideas for lodging.
Marlinton Motor Inn is a good one, Yokum's near Seneca Rocks, many of the state parks offer lodging or cabin rentals.

Anywhere from fleabag motels to the http://greenbrier.com/
The Purple Fiddle is good if you are interested in a hostel, and they have good music, food and brews.

Riding in WV sucks. I wouldn't recommend it.
