    A nice overnight trip. Headed home via 41/60/16/47. A couple obligatory shots of Hawks Nest, Falls coming into Gauley Bridge and the Kanawha Falls.

    Pee Break at Hawks Nest

    Pee Break at a curious Public Access boat ramp that looked more like a boat slide, very steep.

    Jumped on I-77 at Parkersburg and stopped at a rest area about 40 miles into Ohio and checked the radar after encountering a few sprinkles and noticing very dark skies up north. Exited 77 at US36 and avoided some heavy Thunderstorms, roads were wet here and there and it took me an extra 45 minutes or so to get home. I was feeling pretty self satisfied with my Radar Now App. 747 miles and lots of smiles.

    Steve: Great ride stuff in WV. Been on a small portion of them. o you record them on a GPS? I think your choice to move on to a Miata for "2-up" trips is logical. Glad you're on a CRF250....love mine, saw link to here on the 250L owners thread.

    No GPS Tracks, that's why I listed a lot of the routes and threw in a couple road signs. Been lazy adding to this thread this year. Thanks for checking in here.

    Our Miata is no show car the condition is probably just above "clapped out":lol2 but she only has 130k miles and is a lot of fun.

    I was getting a little tired of my CRF and considered selling it. In the meantime it came due for a new chain. I put the 13 tooth CS sprocket on and boy did that ever wake 'er up. In love with it again ....for now.

    It definitely must be different riding styles going from 3, 4, 500 mile days on big cruisers, down to the CRF that becomes a pain in the ass at 200 miles

    Yep. ...and there is no replacement for displacement. I was into CB350 twins, owned more than a couple. Sold off my last batch (1 running, 3 parts bikes) several years ago. Great old around town town bikes, CB350 parts bikes are plentiful and almost found free. Now there is no replacement for lightweight (even though our CRFs are labeled LRP) , Fuel Injection and reliability.
