I need to get another dualsport and hook up with you guys!

Well thanks a lot you WV ADVriders . This thread with all the geological bike stops has pushed me over the line. I'm headed up north this Sunday to look at purchasing a 2010 WR250R from an inmate so maybe soon I'll be posting pictures of my own western Virginia/West Virginia dirt adventures . I love my Big Pig and will keep it forever, but there's nothing like a nimble little dualsport to tour the backroads on! I am REALLY looking forward to getting back on a dirt bike, can't believe how much I've missed it.

Just in time for Spring next Wednesday, WOOOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doug

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."

Ig.
My favorite road in that area.

That road was awesome. Not too rough for a motard with street tires, and the views coming down the mountain heading into bemis as the sun was setting were breathtaking. I've been having flashbacks of West Virginia all winter. I can't wait to get back.

I blew a fork seal on this road once. I love coming up behind 4 wheelers and side by sides on my V Strom. Startles the shit outta em. You don't see too many cages on this road.
