It's more fun in November. This is just north of there.
I'm using a Garmin Zumo 390 and Garmin GPSMAP 60 combination on the bike. I like to have a backup when I'm off-road.
GPSMAP 64s primary
Android running OSMAND backup
Garmin 64s primary.
Following a buddy is backup!
Riding ahead and waiting at every intersection for turn by turn directions from the buddy.
Garmin 64 for backup
We were just following your dust. You mean you didn't know where you were going????
The Kentucky Adventure Trail, the Blue Ridge Trail, the Maine Adventure Trail and several other adventure rides are in close proximity in SW Virginia. Unfortunately they don't all intersect so there's no "grid" of adventure riding without some pavement connectors. Here's a little 140ish mile connector that maximizes the unpaved roads between Appalachia (KAT) and Damascus (MAT, BRT, etc) Virginia. This track is a cut and paste of tracks I have ridden in the past but to confirm that it works I drove some of it yesterday in my Jeep (it was 18° F - so no, I did NOT ride). Section 1 has a winter and a summer option. IMO, the summer option is a better DS ride but the NFS closes that section when there's snow on the ground because they can't maintain it or rescue stranded "adventurers" up there during those months.
These are all public roads, much of it maintained gravel so this is easily rideable on pretty much any motorcycle. You will however, hear banjos from time to time. Enjoy!
