Reply to "Favorite road to motor on"

Just about any mountain road here in West Virginia.  Hundreds of tight turns mountain vistas, switchbacks and mountain lakes. A short trip out of town from Elkins, WV.  to loop back into town on the average takes about 100 miles no matter what the chosen route. Passing through "Snow Shoe" a ski resort that resembles Aspen, passing by a number of steam train stations that take you into the back mountains. Every time Connie and I rode two up on the bike the ever changing scenery is amazing.

I mapped this scenic run : Starting from Elkins out to Snow Shoe,( Ski Resort)  Cass (Steam Rail) Green Bank        ( Nat'l Radio Telescope - residents that live here cannot have home microwaves or cell phones) On to Durbin (Steam Rail) Up to Spruce Knob Lake @4,300 ft. Back down and over to Seneca Rocks ( well known shear faced rocks and general store where you can sit and watch hundreds of bikes and exotic cars come and go) then the return leg to Elkins.  Actual drive time 4 -1/2 hrs.  and 168 miles but in reality with stops etc. this would be a two day run
