I was in there looking at the Ural's several times, bought some maintenance stuff and gear off of him, but no clue where he ended up after closing. Huge oil and gas yard there now. Either Superior or Nabors.

Yeah, the building they were in has lived several lives. Its been a Ural dealer, a church and a strip club. Good combo!

Introducing myself to all the WV folks!

New to the adv stuff, and bought a KLR last year to to do "camp duty" and run kayak shuttles on the area rivers. I really am enjoying exploring some of the roads I did not go down all those years on more sporty-oriented machines.

I live in Charleston and spend a lot of weekends in Greenbrier County near Ronceverte. Don't get a lot of time for multi-day rides, with two middle-school aged kids, but looking forward to new roads and new friends.

I'll introduce myself as well. From Raleigh county, just got my first motorcycle so I'm still learning. Rode through the city of Beckley for the first time today. I have a DRZ400

Heading out to Greenbrier this afternoon with the KLR (carb issues hopefully cured).

May swing over to check out the Blue Ridge Trail.

Y'all have a great 4th and I'll post some pictures when I return.

Welcome to the new inmates. This area is getting to be pretty well represented.
