pnoman - I'm enjoying your ridingwv site. Thank you.
Curious - what prompted the change from that lovely Nighthawk to the big V-Strom? V-Stroms are good bikes to be sure, but I sure like the look of that red, air-cooled Honda 750!
I lived in the Charlottesville VA area for 20 years through the 70s and 80s, and before that for a year with my grandparents in Alderson, WV. I sure miss the rolling hills, the Blue Ridge / Smoky mountains, the friendly people, and that part of the world in general.
My wife and I are planning to trailer the dual-sports down from Ontario to WV this year. We'll ditch the trailer as soon as we arrive, spend a couple days checking out some of the easier trails of the Hatfield and McCoy system (Little Coal River, maybe Rock House), and then several more days enjoying those fabulous WV mountain roads.
