Cool auction coming up on Saturday. I ran across a post on Facebook today for the final auction at
Skip's Honda in Keyser. I have no connection with the auction but thought some of you guys might
like to check it out. If you've ever been in Skip's you know he had a lot of cool/odd old bikes in there.
Some good, some junk. Might be a fun ride destination on Saturday morning.

Looks good, I know the guy who owns that auction company tho.
I wouldn't trust him as far as I could toss any of those bikes.

WV tour

Anyone ever think of doing a WV off road tour? Tour using as many unimproved roads as possible. If interested lets get together over a few beers and start toputsomething together for next summer. Anyone in? I know " tour guide Bob" knows a lot of riding so we could probably put something together.

I know riderwv and jtucker have a good route and I am sure we can come up with something. Bob knows areas in the NF and he can get us from Charleston to Summersville and I also hear that there are good places out of Gauley Bridge.
On another note I got stopped when I went out for a short ride. All of Boyer woods are posted now and there were state troopers on Sugar Camp road, one mentioned to me the posted signs and I mentioned that the road we were on was a county road to Tuckers Branch. They were cool with it being that I had a tag on but I believe there are going to be a lot of pissed off hunters tomorrow because that is who they watching for. They were asking if I saw any ATV's or side by sides.

If they started banning ATVs and SXS where I live, no one that has multiple DUIs would be able to get around.
And that is why I have not tagged the EXC, if the (mostly) low life, drunken, welfare bums can ride around on 4 wheels with no tags. Then I don't need them either.
Not like I would stop anyway

I have dirt from where I live to south of Dolly Sods, and lots of routes around my house.
Jeff knows a lot of them, most are not hardcore off road stuff but are a lot of fun with some great views.

I did a bicycle tour from Sutton and over to Va, down to white sugar springs and on about 14 years ago. We went through Daily and into the mountains on FS roads and it was a great week. Would like this ride to be simular but a little harder than FS roads if possible. We will get some thoughts together.

Sounds pretty much like what we have here in Upshur Co. Nothing too serious for the most part, but I've found out the hard way that while you can ride what we have on something heavier than a 450/530 EXC it's not nearly as much fun.
