By the way, anyone coming down to Sparta from the North and plan on taking the BRB, I'd suggest this diversion.


Instead of taking the parkway from Tuggle’s Gap to Low Gap the direct way...

... explore the various Gap roads in between (Tuggles, Squirrel, Orchards, Flowers, and Low)

Liz and I are doing a long weekend in WV for Memorial Day weekend if anyone will be in the area. No set plan yet. She's done school and is graduating with her Master's, so she's celebrating by treating herself (and me) to a riding vacation. W00T!

Darn, I'll be in the WV the following weekend (and week).

Ill possibly be riding in that area late May early June.  Ill PM if plans become definite

No worry. WV is a big state.

Hey, I will come. Doug convinced me, and the bike should arrive in another week or so.  I ordered tires last night.

What's the bike?

If it's the same bike I saw last time, it's a GS.

Doug, I read something about you wanting a DS route going into Sparta... We are approaching from different directions but I'd be interested in seeing what you've got.  I'd LOVE to come on the WR and tear up those DS roads, but it sounded like they were pretty smooth (= booooring on my WR, or I will be going LUDICROUS SPEED!!!!).  Anyway, give me an idea of your route going in and I'll try to go with you.
