On my Versys in WV (north to south)

Allegheny Highlands of northern West Virginia along a sinuous track to southern border with Virginia on my Versys.
set to a soundtrack of Memphis and Chicago blues.

May ye always have your nose in the wind.

Thanks Bear. Yep Dolly Sods Wilderness and all of WV is pretty easy on the eyes. The slideshows are my way of combatting cabin fever. Bikes snowed in since Nov...winter bites!

Yes R1150 I think it is. Purchased on fleabay on the cheap. Idea stolen from someone here. Highly recommended if looking for economical comfort.

Glad you enjoyed the slideshow.

Really enjoyed the slide show/music as sitting here with a coffee after lunch.

Well thank ye Ron.

On that particular trip, even though one guy had ridden 5 hours just to get there, we still didn't mount up until 11:00 a.m. the next morning and we were back in camp by 4:30 that afternoon. We gobbled a tad too much too! Seemed no one was interested in finishing the remaining dregs that evening.
