Or US 52 .. When are you coming to my area????

thank-you for the info. We should be there next Thursday afternoon.
Leaving Robbinsville, NC in the morning, and doing The Snake and Back of the Dragon
on the way north.  
I've read your postings and enjoy them along with the pics. I figured you would know that road.
After I read about rt. 610 and the dirt part you encountered, I thought I better ask about 614.
Long as it's not dirt we'll give it a try!

thanks again, Craig

Craig...
It's a wonderful paved road... Not as technical as VA16 {Back of the dragon}
That by the way it really get cool heading to Welch wv...
But a blast to ride.... We can see a small part of 614 from our porch...
We are on 61...That is also a wonderful road to ride to Narrows Va...
It runs along the river.... WE have many cool roads that you can take to get north...
Via cutting through the woods ...Hey keep in touch.... Maybe we all could have a cup of coffee.... Shrug 
If you would like I can pm you our number...

Cup of coffee would be great! Maybe supper? Do PM your number.
I'll take any reccomendations for a backroad ride you can give.
If they take us north and east, I'm game.
Any good mom-n-pop places to stay around there? I got a feeling
we won't get much further before dark.
thanks, Craig

Look forward to meeting you & HB.
After looking at the map, think we'll look in
Princeton, WV for a room.
Got a good place we can all go out for supper?

There is a hotel "Comfort Inn" before BlueField that we stayed in while we was farm hunting..
It was clean ... Princeton  is not a good place to stay IMHO..

 hmmm a place to eat.... Need to think more about this...



My buddy Thumper Pilot takes photos on Va 16 .He took these great Pic of HB and me...


I had a very good MothersDay  that day..

Highbinder on TheGhost..It has a Taxi DS on the rear..



And me on TheBlack

Great pics there, looks like a real good day!
Does he shoot every day? Or just weekends?
And thanks for the advise, Bluefield will do just fine.
I've never met anyone on here, (yet) I like to read and lurk.
And learn.

Yes, sorry we were late. We ended up doing the Dragon, the Snake, and the Back of the Dragon that day.
Long day but great riding!!
We took 219 & 250 when we left Bluefield. Them are some nice roads too!
Next time we gotta get together for a ride for sure. And thanks for the info
on the motel, worked out great.

Hey Lady D, we just took 460 to 219 then 250 back to I-81.
Made it as far as Harrisburg, PA. for the night. Then got home
about 2 Saturday. Was a great trip! 3,075 miles. We did Skyline Drive,
BRP, the Dragon 7 times, Cherohola twice, 441, Clingman's dome, Foothills Parkway,
Joe Brown Highway by Hiawassee Dam then routes 30 & 319 into Tellico Plains.
Then on the way home we did the Snake & the Back of the Dragon.
I washed my bike today, pretty sure there were bugs from all 7 states we hit...
Thanks again for the advise
