Apologize?... For what!?! Enjoyed every photo, every word. Thanks for sharing!
We started out for Virginia, a few years ago, on our Voyager. Second day out, we had to stop, and turn around, due to a family emergency. Started back, a few days later, in the car (takes us too long on the bike, as we lolly-gag when on any bike). Rode through West Virginia, on a state highway, forget the number. It was amazingly beautiful, but it was also one, 15-20 MPH curve, every 500 feet, for 60, damn long, miles!!! Nearly had a head-on every 10 curves -- had been wondering why so damn many crosses indicating fatal crashes along the mountainside, then we realized the mountain-side shoulder was all of 6" wide, and the other side was only a foot, with a very steep, and deep, drop off! We hated it, in spite of the beauty. We will never go that route again, or any other non-Interstate route, through West Virginia -- too slow, and too dangerous. It was pretty, but the price for viewing was steep -- the driver could not look away for more than 1/2-second, or there might have been a brand new cross going up on the mountainside...
No matter where we ride, the scenery is everything. You cannot enjoy it in any type of car, the way you can on a bike. The two go together as one. Enjoyed your ride tremendously. Also enjoyed the vintage bike you made it on. They're old, but they're still working perfectly, and that speaks volumes to me. Cheers!

Great ride report and beautiful pictures (or great pictures of a beautiful area). I was reading this on my smart phone at work and couldn't wait to get home tonight to check out the pictures on the PC. Great stuff man. Post anytime. That second bar (the one the guys from Jersey bought) looks like my house. LOL.
I love riding the back roads (who am I kidding, all the roads here are back roads) and checking out the small towns.
hey thanks for the kind words guys.
yes, the roads are tricky here.
even some of the natives get carsick now and then.
About Tracy, I wonder what she said also, looks like he had it bad
Anyways, I'm hoping to check this place out before winter sets in.
Took this shot from my front lawn.
Maybe twice the distance past Rt 50 and Aurora, is some kind of mountain.
I hear people live up there, there's roads to the top.
Good to see these bikes out on the road! You even inspired me to make my own ride post
Question: do you know who makes the exhaust you have on your bike? I think I have the same one and would love to know what it is.
p.s. The regular gas here is the same price as your "supreme"
Havn't looked Half-Caf.
I think I'm the 3rd owner, 2nd rider, of this bike.
The 2nd guy kinda tore it down before putting it on the road,
was gonna cafe' it, but just never got it together.
A friend of mine got it on consignment,
had to find an airbox (it had pods on it), rear caliper and pipe
to get it going. I'll ask him the next time I see him.
