Nice write-ups and photos! You and your Strom don't sit around long to collect much dust, do you?

Good to see you yesterday HBN. For the first couple minutes I sat there wondering....if I'm coming back from WV, and you're coming back from WV, how is it that I'm heading east on 33 and your heading west to H'Burg????

I was trying to meet up with Eric in Elkton at the Subway before he left. Apparently his shift lever rattled a bolt loose and he nearly lost the lever (Wunderlich has an extra safety wire holding it on). I wanted to see his roadside repair...you caught me on the return just closing my loop

I need to go riding with you one of these days. I've been on maybe half the roads you mentioned and want to go back. Thanks for the pics and report!

UpST8 is on to something here. You need to get a good looking woman in some of your pictures.

Great report Mike. I had to get out three WV maps and scratch my head to follow (maybe I should buy a WV Gazeteer or a GPS).
Derilict and I rode Highland Scenic, etc. 3 weeks ago and RedneckRider and I a 300+ mile loop last week in some of the same areas. You've given me lots more to look for though, thanks.

Mike, Looks like you had a great ride on Sunday, and it also looked like we missed each other by minutes at the New River Gorge Bridge. Here are a few more pics from Saturday, and a picture from the bottom of the Gorge on Sunday. As usual, you were an amazing guide and it was a pleasure to ride with you.

For those riding to West Virginia, I highly recommend Fox's Pizza & Motel in Brandywine, WV--$47 a room after tax. Gail's and my bikes outside the rooms just before HBN showed up:

Random View:

HBN and Gail on top of Spruce Knob observation tower:

View from the lower bridge in the New River Gorge:


Enjoy,
Eric
