WV-VA rides

Ape forum member here inviting you guys out for some mountain runs this year! We usually get about 4-5 of us and would like to get more of the Duc family out with us. The rides are typically all day full leather fast paced through the WV-VA mountains of Rt 33, 250, 39, 42, 60, 220, and a bunch others. If there's any interest shoot me a pm or post up and we'll set something up. Ride safe!

I grew up in that area.

It's roads in between the ones you mentioned that are the ones to hit.

Granted I still miss Thornton Gap (211) and Goshen Pass (39).

Give me a day I'll write more. It's after midnight.
Thanks from Gunny Fitz

Not sure how long you've been gone from the area. 211 is still nice but it's close enough to the beltway where the VA state troopers continually patrol it and reckless tickets are no fun for anyone. We typically meet out in Front Royal beyond the traps and it makes for a much less drama filled day.

Up until last year we would still ride it. The county (Rappahanock) had a grant for a few years. It scared most people off and sadly many of the restaurants closed. The key was to be there and gone before 9am. I used to ride it after work sometimes.

Gonna do a mountain ride this Saturday 3/24 if anyone is interested. Shoot me a PM for the details. Pace will be quick and full leather is recommended.

Thats the Blue Ridge Parkway route correct? Some nice roads up that way.

You guys talking about just a day trip - out early and back before too late? Or are you thinking of staying overnight someplace up there? And WHEN are you thinking?

Must admit its not only been awhile since Ive ridden my poor Tri, but riding those sweet roads up there sure is inviting! lol.

Im in Fairfax myself. Don't ya pretty much go all the way our I-66 toward Winchester or something? Damn would I like to go out with yoos guys!
