Riding Two Up

Ok. So I was thinking about bringing a friend with me.
Since this is my first Spring Frolic, I don't know what to expect.
I don't want her to get bored.
Is there two up riding during the day? Or is it trail riding?
Aside from food and alcohol, what else goes on?
I need to make a decision about bringing her or not.

Very little actual trail riding. Lots of wonderful forest road to be explored, along with plenty of interesting pavement.

If you are looking for something other than riding, there is the scenery of Seneca Rocks and Blackwater Falls, and I know of two show caves in the area (Smoke Hole and Seneca Caverns). The list goes on.

Basically, if you have not been to West Virginia on a motorcycle, you owe it to yourself to go. If you have been there before, you know that any excuse to go back is good enough.

Well the thing is, she likes to ride.
So if there are people riding non-dirt roads, she would love that.
I just hate to leave her at the camp sight bored while I go off road.
She's not a hiker either.
I would be riding a KLR 650 and that alone could pose a problem.
As long as it's paved and people will be leading, I think it would work for us.
She may actually let me off road for a day too.
What do you guys think?
Bring her or leave her?
Any other women going?

Can she handle easy gravel? That's a requirement just to get to Laurel Fork.

If so, bring her. There's too much good stuff to be seen.

Take her for the best local Pizza at Sirianni's in Davis.

Good riding scenery to be had on 72, Seneca Rocks, good BBQ in Franklin, cool wind farms on Mt Storm and over near Parsons. The best easy gravel is linked up by some of the best paved twisties in the area.

Bear Rocks overlook at Dolly Sods makes for a great couple shot to hang on the wall at home

Thanks Draco, but she doesn't ride a bike herself.
She doesn't know her, so she's a passenger.
But she can ride 2up with me if you'll be the tour guide. :-)
