I will do the BRP and the T-Shirt roads just so I can say I did them, but I am beginning to discover the vast resource we have in WV, Western MD, and North West - VA. Many of our roads are incredible. Check out some the threads from "PNOMAN" http://www.ridingwv.com/ . I would be very much interested in some of your fav's.
A couple Bikes I am drooling about are the KTM's, Suzuki DL650 Vstrom, BMW gs650 and I have had a strange affection for the Triumph Tiger ever since I've first started riding in 1972 in Italy on a 500 Triumph Trophy!

Honestly I'm happiest when I'm on two wheels heading down any road!
I lived in Bowie, MD for 3 years in the 90s. I took quite a few rides out to WV & VA while I lived there. Although I thought the roads where great, I prefered the roads further south so that's where I went on longer trips. But, that was back before my dual sport days. Back then I preferred the easier roads like Deals Gap because it was easy to go fast and feel like a hero on them. Since then my tastes have changed some and I prefer the more challenging roads where average speeds are lower. I suspect I would like the roads of your area more now than I did back then.

Some day I'll make it back up there but the problem is: So many roads, so little time.

Oh, BTW Riff. I found some new roads yesterday.

The best routes are going to require a dirty bike tho.

Got one yet?

AdvWolf said he is not giving his up yet! Go figure! Need to talk to my bro-in-law he is a wrench-er for "Romney Cycle" surely he can score me a ride somewhere. Just have to convince the wife it a necessary budget item!

I've been following several of the NC threads and it all looks good from the coast to the mountains. Like you I just need the TIME and money. You know you are always welcome back to God's country the gates are open 24 - 7 - 365.

No my hero days are better defined as the quality of the ride as well. I like measured speed and control a lot better these days. My tag line refers to being closer to the end of the story than the beginning and I want to see it all before the book is closed. My native American ancestry helps me to fool a lot of people about my true age [I like being underestimated]. My bike is often looked at as a sport bike, but it is a {Big} Naked Sport Touring bike, the Naked Version of what is now the K1300S. I think WVHillbilly is very serious about helping me get a dual sport, and believe you me I'd take one in a heart beat, but until then ....

I am hoping some time in the near future to come down that way when I do I'll let you know.

I don't know what they are worth, seemed a little steep to me. I could be wrong tho, it's been known to happen.

Of course you can't tell how nice it is, since there are no pictures

Don't have anything around to sell? Think your boss would give you a pay advance?

One of the Kids maybe!
The problem is I think I can go back to my bank and they would do it in a heartbeat! I'd have to go to my boss to convince my wife not to KILL ME ! Paul said it best " to live is Christ to die is gain" so either way I look at this it is a win win situation.

I'd post some pictures from our trip the other day, but they wouldn't count as we were in the truck.

I don't think a couple would hurt! Do you have a "smug mug" account?
