Gauley: A Tenere Outing

Alegany and I chose a route that offers a taste of much of what WV roads have to offer. Roads varied from a twisty two lane mountain highway to a winding waterway valley to paved one lane backways and miles and miles of timber company and Monongahela forest service roads. We found ourselves deep into the heart of Alegany’s namesake mountains at what can only be described as West Virginia’s ceiling as our near backcountry journey took us in the province of Red Spruce, black bear, mountain lion, fisher and varying hare. Closing the loop gave us a little taste of WVs BRP and Cherohala Skyway in the form of U.S. 219 and WV 150 the Highland Scenic Highway. We even had a sample of one of many WV Dragons along Woodrow Road near Edray.

After much map study and having a general sense of how the mountains lay where I was born and will someday die; we set off using the explorer’s time tested method of following one’s nose. We passed through a gap at elevations higher than 4000’ that is the birthplace of three major drainages. Wildlife encountered included a grouse, deer, a humongous pile of fresh black bear scat and a few Golden Rainbow and Rainbow trout.

It was a great day to Tenere!

What kind of aftermarket pipe do you have on it? Your exhaust sounds like banjos...





Great roads, great bike. I am envious.

Very nice, there is a lot of banjo noise coming from that exhaust.

Very nice indeed. It must have been a great day. But, damn. I can't even get my exhaust to play the banjo much less sing along with it.

Generic exhaust. Special ECU is the secret. I'll reprogram it for a mandolin note someday just to see if I can eek out a few more ponies.
