A one day ride I kind of put together on the map. I've rode all these roads at one time or another, but not recently, and not linked together.

From Staunton rt. 250 west to Monterey.
rt. 220 north past Franklin.
From rt. 220 take the road through "Smoke Hole" to rt. 55/Cabins (spectacular).
Rt. 55 south to Seneca Rocks.
Rt. 28 south to Judy Gap/Thorwood/Green Bank.
Rt. 66 west to Cass Rairoad/rt. 219.
Rt. 219 south to rt. 150 WV "Scenic Highland Parkway", to rt. 39 (very nice).
Rt. 39 east through Goshen Gap to rt. 252.
Rt. 252 back to Staunton.

All these roads are well paved, but some of it narrow, no lines, no shoulder, no guardrail.

They are all nice in different ways.

'05 R1200GS lotsa miles (sold)
'09 Yamaha Majesty - yes, a scooter

Thats a good ride Paul,very similar to the one I'm working on.I'll see if I can get it on to Mapsource and Streets and trips.I just laid out a 125 miler to the east including the BRP and returning on Rt 252.Shawn is going to Pre-ride it this weekend.Also working on a GS route,there are a lot of mountain field roads in the area.

Too many roads,not enough time.

Thanx guys, I appreciate it greatly!! I was thinking that 3 routes would be a good number, and a GS route thrown in too will be awesome. Thanx again guys!!
