Hey Kite
I just weighed you down with a great deal of information. Take a look at it and based on your time constraints you can pick and choose, and what you don't get to do this time. you'll wanna come back for more.

Good Luck, Good Riding, and God Speed!
Riff

I'll be around over the weekend, and Riff might come over the mountain.
We could probably put together a route between us

What are ya riding, does it have knobbies or is it fast?

I'll be home tomorrow evening, live just off of US Rt 50. 50 is 4 lane and boring in the western part of the state, gets fun and twisty east of Clarksburg.

PM me

Glad you had a good trip, the Goldwing would be a good choice for touring.
Since we are not hauling gear we travel lighter and faster than you might want to do on a Wing.

Hey Kite Old Man!


Glad You enjoyed yourself. Like me and the HillBilly have implied in our posts ... " you can come and ride in our mountains anytime, but they will never leave you, and always keep you wanting for more" Let us know next time you plan on blowing through and we'll put together a tour for you, and be ready for every twist and terrain you can imagine. Getting ready to put up another post from a ride a couple of days ago. Another unbelievable "Day Trip" in "The Mountains of the East"!

Day 2 of a Day Trip! According to Google Maps this is a 62.2 mile, One Hour and Thirty One Minute trip that took me Two days! The wife and I started out on July the 4th and I didn't get there until 3:45, by myself on July the 5th! And no I hadn't been drinking! One Word "RAIN"! If had been just me, no problem, but I take care of the Fox. To give the short version, into day one I just turned around just before the second storm and took Her back to Cumberland which fit her plans perfectly. So here we go. West Bound out of Cumberland on old Route 40.

Pass Cassleman



Through Grantsville continues west on 40 to the "Youghiogheny"



Cross over the "Yough... " [not sure how we get YOUCK out of that!?]


48.5 miles from Cumberland on 40 you come to PA Rt 381 at Farmington [not far from the "Nemacolin" resort] and go north appx 6.5 miles to ....

That's right "OhioPyle", I know "been there done that", but this is not our final destination today! To Be Continued!

Been wanting to check this out for some time. Here are the good ones, with little or no commercial interruption! The Pathway to the house!















Turn the corner.

"Fallingwater" definitely worth the trip. Even if it takes two days ... !

Did I say I went through "Ohio Pyle" before I went back to Cumberland ?







These are the kind of place you look for when you travel; the big chain places are okay, but can not compare to this!


to find food this good, and all for under MickeyDee's prices.


Ohio Pyle is one of those places you can be as active as you want or if you just want to chill out .... well you get the idea.












Time to head back down river ...


To
.CUMBERLAND !

Thanks Kite... talking with ADVWolf via our message board about all the places around our little end of our world and we can't believe all that we have around here when we think about it, and most of it we take for granted. Riding and Photography are something I really enjoy. they really help me keep perspective in my life. I am not a pro at either like some of the folks on this site, who are Incredible and inspiring riders, photographers and story tellers. The one thing we All have in common is Living the dream on the two wheel machine we call "Motorcycle"! Thanks again and looking forward to someday meeting up with you. Possibility of making some time in September not sure when yet, and thinking BRP to the Dragon and around that area. Will let you know if and when.


Looking to keep growing, longing for more riding!
Riff
