The last time in WV, I stopped to stay at a motel. I used a cc and provided my driver license. The clerk copied my license and informed me that it was a state law to keep my license for 5 years.
Anyone know if that still is a WV requirement?

I have never heard of that. I would suggest you contact the hotel and demand clarification. I'd consider a credit check on yourself.as well. I will look in my law book at work on Monday and see if there is any legitimacy to it.

I just found this great thread. I hope you like my pics.



The 100 meter radio telescope at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.




There is a light at the end of the tunnel. The tunnel is .7 mile long and is on the Gauley River Trail.




Etching of the view from Hawks Nest done on an iPhone app.




Scenic view from Cotton Hill Mountain of the Kanawha River about 1 mile west of Gauley Bridge, WV.




Sinks of Gandy, near the Laurel Fork Campground. Private property but not posted.




Overlook at Bald Knob, the upper destination of the Cass Scenic Railroad.




Devil's Backbone just east of Huntersville, WV on Rt. 39.




Dual Sport riding on Paddy's Knob Road in Pocahontas County.

The road at the top of Spruce knob


Heading into Bemis, "the back way" as a local told me. CR8 i think?

We were stopped on the side of the road looking at a terrible map trying to figure out how to get to laurel fork on gravel. He said "Well you need to get to Bemis. You can take the highway and get there in 45 minutes, or take this road. I could make it in 10 minutes back in the day on my old dirtbike, but that's hauling ass, and i don't recommend you doing that with her on the back."

I always loved riding in West Virginia due to the fucking epicness of the 2 lane highways there. Once i got the tard and started riding gravel.... I'm almost glad i don't live there. Almost. I would find it extremely difficult to make that turn into work in the morning and not just keep going, and going, and going.

As a geologist and life-long motorcycle addict, this picture gave me a woody! I've seen it on my way to ski at Snowshoe, but it didn't have a motorcycle parked in front of it.



This was my view for MILES coming home from skiing that day , so I got a good look at the little fold as we creeped past. I need to go ride that road again this summer!



Here's a shot of something similar that I pass on my way to town from our farm, you can only see it when the leaves are off.



Nice photos, you WV guys. I've been to some of those places, but need to get out and see more, more, MORE!!! Spring's coming!

I used to have a DR650 and I really miss it. I sold my dirt bikes when I moved here from Wyoming five years ago, stupidly thinking there wouldn't be any place to ride them out here in the civilized world.



I need to get another dualsport and hook up with you guys! That was a great bike, wish I still had it. I stopped at this spot because I had just accidentally run over a rattlesnake and turned around to see if it was OK; he was PISSED but seemed OK so I gave him some space and left him alone, but since I was stopped anyway it made for a nice shot of the bike .

WV code 61-3b-3
The farmer that owns this land has let people walk in there for years.It is
legally posted by the fencing. He runs sheep and cattle,along with watch dogs for the flocks and is posted with signs about the dogs all along that road.
Actions like this will eventually get it shut down. Being a WV farm/land owner this does not not sit well with me. I'm all for riding back roads and and abandoned roads that are still on the maps. I fight to keep abandoned roads open. But this is IMO, is blantent disrespect for the landowner. We need to keep it on the roads and designated trails folks, or more of it will be closed down.

I cringed when I saw that photo. Then I thought, maybe he knows the landowner and had permission? The gate has always been closed and locked when I've been there, so you can't really get a bike down there without breaking through something. Hopefully that didn't happen.

The Sinks side of the road is not posted(not around the gate anyway), the north side has the warning signs about the dogs.

Although you can't see any of the signs in this photo. They're not real big.

You are correct. I cringed also and may have overreacted without finding out the facts. It's just one of the photos that doesn't send a good vibe. I have put up with litter and destruction from the quadtards that I have become very defensive of "Trespassers". I caught a kid visiting from Jersey in a hayfield of mine. When I asked him wtf are you doin his reply was priceless

Didn't think anyone owned it

No dumbf###, we just go around and mow large expaneses of open area for the F### of it


My apologies,
and the last I will interupt a great thread with rants

I'm sorry but in 100% agreement. Would you ride around in someone's suburban front yard? If not why would you think it's any different because there is more land. Signs or no signs,This makes me sad.
