I've been following this thread from the begining. Looking at all of the pics from all who posted, actively on TT almost every day from the time I became a member, looking at everyones pics of bikes, homestates, scenery from where they ride and all, it really makes me want to hit all of those places, someday I will!!. Being in NY, I'm sure you have hit a few nice places to ride in the mountains out that way. I have been fortunate enough to live in quite a few places in this country, as well as other countries, for short periods of time anyway, and maybe cause this is my homestate, I am biased towards it, but the mountains out here are among the best I have experienced anywhere. I'm not just talking here in WV, but almost anywhere east of the Big River anywhere......WV does have a weak economy, I know, I am fortunate enough to have a well paying job to survive here, but to look at places to ride and beauty everywhere, this is it. The smells in the spring as you plow down old fire roads, where no one cares if you are there or not....over to one of the largest network of trails anywhere, on the Hatfield/Mcoy trails....to fire roads deep within some of the remotest mountain valleys you can find anywhere.....it really never ends in terms of outdoor activities....as you can find in just about any other state in this awesome country. If you are an adventurist by nature, you will be happy anywhere..........as I too will probably be moving on in a few years to experience life elsewhere. I know one thing......I will be on the XR, and I will be watching for every sunset, praying I will see it rise again over the mountains the next day...........it's nice to see how everone loves where they live and why.....I am around people all day that are not happy, and will not be happy anywhere you put them.....for those people, a motorcycle will be good therapy, and possibly thin out the population a little!!! Where ever you end up.........don't ever stop riding.
