I think I said somewhere else in this report Rowlesburg is a nice little town worth your consideration when traveling the "Mountains of the East". It is a pretty town!





Town Clock - ask WVH about it! Comes with a Story!


Shopping!


Hey WVH you need to open a "Motorcycle Motel" ... just sayn!

obviously cool people like this {I Assume this husband and wife} riding team! Do you know em WVH?


and WoW this pic speaks for itself!

might be a flashback picture, but worth the re-post!

All in all? A great place, a beautiful people, proud to be Americans, Proud of their West Virginian heritage!


and now it is time to get back down the road





TO

Cumberland, MD

I know who the couple on the bikes are, they live just up the road from me.
Nice folks, they don't ride as far (or fast) as we normally do tho.

I blame the bike, it causes the rider to act like a hooligan.

Wolf I think we have him! WVH may have to convert from the darkside! It is official now I am a two horse stable! Proud owner of a 2006 BMW K1200R and, .... and .... wait for it!




That little "Austrian"! 2002 KTM 640 LC4 in great condition at a phenomenal price!
Once again I've got more bike than I can handle! There Will be pictures!

History tells us what happens when a little Austrian is hooked up with a German!?
"Delusions of Grandeur and attempt at world domination"! Like I said "legend in my own mind"!

Riff, I did make it to the Mountains of the East last month, just not quite as far east as the area you normally ride.

All the details are in my ride report: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=803404

And one last pic, the Beaches of the East:



This beach was in VA, not W VA, but it wasn't to far from the border

Hey There Klav you ol Aviator!

Great to hear from you. WVHILLBILLY sent me the link to ur thread yesterday and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Yeah I went looking for ya a couple times there. Even went as far west as Clarksburg, but did not find ya! I was hoping we could do a couple roads around here, but it is all good. There a quite a few here in these parts that you and your machine would tear me and Kira up on! Sorry to hear You and I still have the dreaded CRS syndrome, I can't remember if they found a cure for that yet or not? My Loss! Riding Season is not over yet, and we still have some miles to ride, and there are a lot of great trails in the "Mountains of the East" North and South!. OH YEah almost forgot Where Exactly did you say that mountain beach was again? .I'm a feered that beach would get me into more trouble than I could handle!

That beach is in Hungry Mother State park on 16 just North of Marion, VA. I had planned to get up in your direction but lost some time getting a new tire and hanging out at the beach enjoying the scenery, so I just went all the way through W VA on 16. Maybe next time I'll make it up towards you.

He has the dirty bike, now he needs dirty tires to go with it.

I would have been there this weekend if not for the uber organizational skills of American Airlines

All Right, All Right already! Hey there WVH I hope you are home by now! Incredible! with all the problems airlines are having these days, I would think their functionality or lack there of would be the least of their problems. Could be a portent of their future. As in they have none! Again hope your back in town for a couple days.

In response to popular demand I feel it my obligation to post up pictures here of my latest acquisition! Kira is no longer an only child. She now has a little sister, and she is every bit as gorgeous, smart, strong, and .... aw heres the pics!




She's got a couple minor issues nothing serious, but I feel I got a "Screaming Deal"!
2002 KTM 640 LC4 [actual engine size is 625 CC]





She comes with several extra mods including this exceptional seat!









I am not going to take any chances! She will be parked inside with the German, .... UH OH an Austrian and a German? Got some serious potential here! But like I said I am not taking any chances! I even got a Guard Dog! [He thinks he's a Doberman, but in reality, he is a Chihuahua Terrier mix named "Bam Bam".]
