If you use a GPS I can send you the route.
One word of caution, Gauley Bridge is a speed trap. Be very careful if you ride through there. They will even make up things to give you a ticket.

Hi Doug, It has been ages. How have you been doing?

I'm happy to report that I made it over the Gauley Bridge, and the rest of the trip with no "performance awards"
On advantage to my scooter is that I generally don't have a problem staying at or near the speed limit on straights or in town. In the curves, on the other hand.....

As for GPS, I'm one of those technologically handicapped people, no GPS, no smart phone, never been on twitter

Hoping to make it up in your direction this fall for some dual sport riding.

I ride, Therefore I Am.
