I became inpressed with WV
I go down to Mid-Ohio often, son lives down there and I ride to his bicycle races and help out sometimes. First Beemer trip to West Virginia and it was a great ride. I don't see how fast I can make a curve or make sure I in front. Just a gentle ride, fast enough to enjoy: not to challenge my bikes maximum abilities.
I just like riding on curves, as opposed to the 4 lane flat slab. Took 800 to SR 26 down to Williamstown, WV, and then road around some great roads. Stopped places that I never find again, with a 4.5 gallon tank about 140 miles before gas (was time to stop anyway). Roads were good shape and very nice scenery, just a great weekend. Trees starting to change, and no bugs. Only one alive deer, couple that had meet their fate. Stopped at the WV tourist information rest area, was told that the 'Governor' was closing the Ohio location. Got some very good riding information, too bad this is closing. Maybe the pamphlets can be found on line.
On the way back Ohio 555 was not a very good road, surface was poor, and there was traffic (mostly farmers). Even some white stuff on road that made me think I had cut a tire. Had to ride very slow till I could find a safe place to stop, by then power was gone. Did stop at Weasel Boy Brewing, Zanesville, OH for one beer. I think SR 26 was a much more enjoyable ride.
