I rode Burning Rock today, mostly the single track stuff cause it's the most 2 wheel friendly. I never knew they had a huge paved section in the middle of the woods, strange stuff.

Probably run over and watch the Harescramble in the morning. I rode part of the track after they had the last race and it's an absolute blast.

Took a 2 hour ride after church today, all in Upshur County. There's hundreds of miles of dirt/gravel roads in Upshur, Randolph, Webster County to ride(someone come ride with me) Didn't take many pics but here are a few



I know trees are a renewable resource and timber employs a lot of people,but this is a shame they can leave it looking like this pics don't do it justice.

Finally got out for a little ride today, rode 65 miles took about 3 hours average speed 21 mph wasn't on many big roads. Here's a few picks

Unlike red rider I didn't see 1 motorcycle the whole time here's proof

Not a bad place to take a break.

Good eye. Amazing I didn't past any side by sides. I got behind one on another road,I thought he was going to roll it over trying to stay in front of me,the big 690 wasn't even breathing hard.
