Great area...is it ok to go offroad now? We've been to 10 or so BW100's and the power company was making it difficult to ride there....at least really offroad.

Nope! No off road riding anywhere on anything. No atv's, mtn bikes, horses.... Power Co. sold some of it's land to Fish and Wildlife and some to Canaan Valley Institute. Still have Camp 70 road, Loop road and Canyon Rim road to play on. Not to mention the entire Monongahela forest roads

Dolly Sods?

I will be down there the end of May. Is the road up to Dolly Sods too rough for a street bike? The Triumph will be bringing me instead of the KLR and I would love to see that area again.

No, it's still running, just not out of Davis anymore. First it moved to Canaan (Timberline Ski Area) for a few years, then down to Snowshoe and most recently up to a site near Morgantown. When ya talk to folks that have raced em' all, they long for the Davis days.

Not at 60 mph! Thats about the speed where the “wash board” changes into “rumble strips”. That road sees more and more traffic these days, so they maintain it fairly well. Maybe you’ll get lucky and catch it the day after they put 4” of loose gravel down.

Great thread. Now I know who the holler at the next time I head North, and if any of you FF's head south let me know. I'm right next to Bluefield.

You don't ride through Bland on occasion do you? I kept seeing a guy on a red KLR650 once in a while back in the summer on my way to work.
