Riding this road was quite possibly the most fun I've had on a bike. Good road surface, never saw a cop, lovely mountain towns scattered along a road absolutely packed with curves, straights, climbs and dives; and around each curve another stunning vista of mountains and meadows. The road coming down the mountain just before Gauley Bridge was like a miles-long roller coaster. I wanted to go back up immediately just to come back down. The road settles down when you get next to the Kanawha River but is still a great ride for the scenery. The road goes through Charleston, but I recommend getting on I64 and bypassing the town
Chillicothe Ohio to Winchester VIrginia. Chillicothe to Albany pleasant country backroad. Athens to Clarksburg WV is fairly boring 4 lane highway. Nice mountain scenery, though. From Clarksburg to Winchester is a terrific ride on a two lane road through the mountains. LOTS of curves, climbs and dives. Gorgeous scenery, mostly good road surface. Special mention to the Yamaha shop in Romney WV. Super service and excellent prices. They made a breakdown as easy to deal with as possible. Romney was a pleasant town. Clarksburg to the Virginia state line was just a lot of fun. Well worth riding again
Country state highway from Waverly to Sciotoville. First half from Waverly to Beaver is best. Nice curves, hills, pretty rural scenery. Good road surface, little traffic. Watch out for loose gravel kicked onto road from side roads and driveways. Second half from Beaver to Sciotoville less interesting. More open, relarively straighter, more traffic but still nice. Road surface not as well maintained.
Ohio River to Hillsboro. Has a little of everything: curves, hills, straights, woods, open fields, streams. Little traffic, road surface mostly great shape. A couple of small towns along the way. Great variety, just a fun ride.
Country road, decent road surface. Straights and open farmland first half, hills and modest curves as you approach Lancaster. Easy ride
