OK, here's my chance to try to contribute something to an idave RR.
I'm going to punch in at this spot and edit from here.

Decided at the last minute to link up at The Plains, Virginia for the ride after telling Donnymoto I had other priorities. A ride like this doesn't come along every day. I've been wanting to go riding with Dave for months. Also, I'm 95% solo so it was especially good to ride with what I consider very highly skilled riders.

I did have a chance to ride behind Dave for a good stretch. Of course I was as far behind Dave as he wanted at any given time Still he would slow down on the straights to keep the ride together and it went unsaid that you have to ride your own ride. It was more than impressive watching Dave go into sharp turns - Later on I was behind Don - and he is very good too!

Dave took us on some great stretches of road. Until we got into West Virginia at Brandywine on US 33, the ride was much too intense to attempt to take any photos. I took the following pics between Brandywine and Seneca Rocks, WV

Past Brandywine, There goes Dave and Donny



And here comes Mark



A very easy turn compared to many earlier - especially near the West Virginia/Virginia State line on US33 and also thru the Thornton Gap.




Made it to Seneca Rocks



At the rest area

Don is looking up at the Rocks - must be thinking about a rock climb?



And the ride back - solo again through Lost River Road.



Thanks for the Ride, idave, donnymoto, and mark!

"Based on experience, if I post a ride, I will be riding solo."


Been there! That made me laugh.

Then again, I have ridden with iDave. While my experience riding with him has been that he is a thoughtful guide, and never leaves you wondering where he went, lost on some random back road, the skill set he arrives with and delivers might just be intimidating to mere mortals. Just sayin'!


And damn you Dave. I am just getting into the groove of the ride report, arriving at the good stuff, and you stop. Teaser. Sure, leave the audience on the edge of their keyboard, leaning forth, scrolling for more. You are an unadulterated motorbike literary flirt.

Thanks for the ride everyone!!!

It was great meeting up with Dave, Donny, Larry, and Dana. I will brush up on my riding skills for future rides together.

I realized how bad of a photographer I am after downloading pictures from the camera.

You can barely make out the riders upfront. I believe it goes as Larry, Donny and Dave.



Here is a quick stop after an awesome twisties through Rt 33.


You can always count on ADV to find wonderful people to ride with!!!



As I bid farewell to Larry, Donny, Dave and Dana I continued west. Then somewhere along a state park, I turned south...



The weather was wonderful with no traffic in sight.



It was a great experience to be able to ride through West Virginia and Virgina. You get wooded roads...


Wide open country roads....


Patchy roads...


Roads with Cliffs on side with the occasional rock the size of soccer balls on the road!!


And lastly, roads that follows the path of rivers and creeks that runs miles and miles!!!


Don't want to hijack the thread anymore!!! Thanks again for the great ride!!

Mark
