Hello, three of us are going to go to Elkins WV . We will arrive on June the 4th and leave on the 9th.
We are looking for local people that might want to come with us on a few rides to show us the great mountain rides you have there!
You could reply on this forum and /or on my [email protected].
We will be staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Elkins. If you e-mail me and give me your # I could also call you back.
I have an 09 wing and my friends have St1300s
Hope I will hear from you soon and looking forward to riding in WV... Gil

We are in Ontario Canada in the summer, and in Lady Lake Fl in winter!!

Add two more to that ride. Himan47 and Shadow1 are joining the festivities too. Maybe we could get together with a bunch for lunch. Hey.. maybe we could have a WV RTE and make all those flat landers in Florida jealous!
See ya'll there on the 4th of June.

Not sure their (oHIoans) plans are firmed yet. It's either Hot Springs, or Lovington Va., I believe. I plan to head to Robbinsville & meet another group, do the BRP slow & solo, & meet other bunch wherever they decide.
Back to regular programming.

Yes, it will be great to have some of you mountain riders join us for a ride or two and even a few drinks after!
We will not get there until later on the 4th so the 5th would be good to meet up!
Y'all keep in touch on this board and we will keep you posted on our progress later! Gil

I sure did like what I seen Randy! You are a PRINCE for taking the time to do that for us! You certainly will have a FREE DINNER coming to you when we see you.
I downloaded all the rides in my GPS and all the maps as well.
If you feel up to it you can put them on this board, it would be nice
Thank you again Randy.... Gil

This one you go past Brazenhead Inn in Mingo, WV. They have a nice Pub and Restaurant. The only thing is they have odd hours of operation. But a quick call to them solves this problem. Or if our a risk taker just stop in.

A second northern route

Just keep an eye on you fuel. Gas stations can be far apart on Sundays.

When you head west coal trucks can become a problem, and I have no clue how all this natural gas drilling is affecting that area. I know around here it is bad. Getting behind the service trucks and they are tearing up the roads.
