Nah go grab it. You have a bike that will make short work of the trip.

SouthEast game will go like this: You post the first tag, no one grabs it, game over...

Yep. We started this game really out of a discussion concerning expanding the TriTor boundaries. We knew there were some dead spots east of I-95 that were going to stall the game, but figured it would actually encourage more people to ride out that way. Riders tend to move tags in the northeast part of the state, but anything in the southeast portion tends to lag for long periods of time.

I could get up there but I don't have a clue where any of the good roads are, plus I'm heading to VA this weekend to ride some mountain road... Any of you guys done the back of the dragon?

WV16 is a cool road, you'll love it. Lots of curves, low traffic, great scenery. If you need a place to stay, check out the General Francis Marion Hotel in Marion, VA. Great hotel and you'll get a discount if say you're riding Back of the Dragon.

I did the Rattlesnake during the last Nottarally. Lost interest in the "Dragon" after seeing the aftermath of the tractor trailers on it. Maybe one day I will get around to riding it. West Virginia has some great roads.

Back of the dragon good, lots of great rides in the area. Check out Fries, Ivanhoe, Foster Falls, Burkes Garden, do ride thru Pipers Gap. Up to and past the BRP - definitely good.

If you do back of the dragon (stupid name) then make sure you stop at Scooter Dogs and say hello to LadyDraco and HB.

Actually ended up calling the trip off and drinking away the anger of all this rain over the weekend. Going to wait a few weeks and try again.
