Like a musician with a talent for hearing tone, I have a talent for seeing terrain. If I ride over a piece of ground two or three times, later on I have a clear mental image of the land in my mind. I suppose it’s a photographic memory for terrain. I’ve used this peculiar talent to my advantage by exploring the entire Appalachian Range from north central Pennsylvania to the North Georgia Mountains, and west to the Ohio River. My objective was to seek out great sport-touring roads. While I don’t know all the great roads, I know most of them.

I’ve linked together many of these roads into a crafted route that is just over 2000 miles long. That’s right! The route starts in Berkeley Spring, West Virginia and over eight days, takes you in a southerly direction through the best motorcycle regions in the Appalachian Mountains to western North Carolina. Then the route turns north and and concludes along the Blue Ridge Plateau at Meadows of Dan, Virginia. I’ve included some of the history you’ll ride through and given suggestions on where to eat and spend the night.
