    I would like to plan a trip to Whitetop Mountain at some point in the future. How is the road to the top for a street bike? I have CB750 Nighthawk with street tires. I don't do much off roading these days, but am a skilled street rider. Thanks

    I think you would be fine. It is a gravel road 2-3 miles long. A few of the switchbacks are a bit rough but nothing technical at all.

    The photo doesn't do the view justice! It is a special place plus the Appalachian Trail crosses the mountain. Don't miss Highway 58 from Damascus to Volney with Grayson Highlands along the way. Lots of great riding in the area!

    Took a quick ride out to Cherry Point Landing in Rockville, SC after work yesterday. It's still hot and humid here in the SC Lowcountry, and the Lovebugs hatched immediately after Hurricane Dorian went through. So, lots of bug guts on the visor.

    A common prairie view. I could see two towns from here - each about 15 km away. Chickpeas on the left, lentils harvested on the right.
