There are so many great places to ride in this region but WNC is still my favorite. If you're looking for route selections, I've done a number of ride reports in the area, many of them where done on dual sport bikes and include dirt/gravel roads.

I think it was a year or more ago but I remember reading a ride report of yours that included 16 through southern WVA and then down to Marion, VA. That report planted the seed for riding through the area again. I'll get back to writing in a bit but like you, I find it easier to respond to others posts than write my own ride report.

Now it's time for you to get back to writing too.

Does the Lafayette still have their "Gun Room"?

I do remember seeing a sign for the "Gun Room". How did you like staying at the Lafayette and does it look like old downtown Marietta has changed much in 22 years?

Thanks for following along.
I ride, Therefore I Am.
