My next trip started with upstate NY then back to Delaware for a couple days.
Bear Mountain is a wonderful ride and I am so glad I was able to do 7 Lakes Rd
I then made my way to Petersburg WV.
What a lovely area.
I made my way to south Pittsburg as I wanted to upgrade the audio in Charlotte.
I also had a great stop at Ohiopyle PA.
I then spent the night in Marietta OH.
It was here that I spent the night drinking a couple of Bud Lights and flipping a coin.
The next day I started out traveling the south Ohio area and then started making my way back down to Maggie Valley NC.
I spent the night in Beckley VA.
The next morning I wanted to take route #16 from Beckley to Troutdale.
What a crazy beautiful ride.
120 miles of bliss through some old mining country.
Took me about 4 hours to complete.
I then made a quick stop at Backbone Park then headed to Maggie Valley.
I arrived at A Holiday Motel only to run into a Victory Gathering lol.
Great group of people and we spent the wkd riding together.
On Sunday they were all packing up to head home but I had nowhere to go.
Sitting in front of the motel watching them all leave I soon realized I was going to be the only person around if I didn’t head out.
So I too packed up and started heading out.
I decided to try a new way home…I usually head to and from Maggie Valley via the Pittsburg way…I77-I79-I90
Today I thought Knoxville TN then I75 up to Detroit then home.
I didn’t get far out of Knoxville when construction took over I75
Rather than deal with this I shot over towards Charleston WV via route #63 - #58 - #23 - #119.
I am so glad I did this.
What a wonderful ride.
It was long but the weather was great and the scenery was even better.
Once I made it to Charleston I shot up to Morgantown WV and spent the night.
A quick stop at the dealer there and then I headed home.
A few weeks later I was ready for the next adventure
