Me and the wife are heading through West Virginia vi the new river gorge area in june going over to the BRP and then back across West Virginia on rt 33 and on home to Ohio. I know W VA is a helmet law state but in its laws it says helmets must have reflective stuff on the helmet. Do they really inforce this?

As an old and still present WV citizen (I still have a house near Terra Alta) I can say that WV is a haven for bikers. It is very rare to meet a policemen on back road. It is almost impossible. No any restriction and limitations. I do not mean a bog cityes as Morgantown for example.

? 4 WV riders?

No reflective stuff on my helmet or any othre riders I've passed or ride with. Pass state and local law enforcement all the time and I live out in the boonies with a police barracks less than 5 mi. from me.

I have found the same thing. I still have a house in Randolph County WV (Norton) and it's one of the best places in the country to ride if you like twisties and beautiful rugged mountain scenery. They will nail you for speeding though I've found that out on more than one occasion. :oops: :oops: :oops:

The tolls that I know of are only on I-77 south of charleston. Try the Pa turnpike now there are some tolls. :cry:

Shoot, I was born in Elkins, my grandmother lived in Parsons, until the flood took her out....she was fine, just the house my Great grand father bought......it survived.....

You're right about the roads in WV......go up to Thomas/Davis and see Blackwater Falls......and the ski resort!!!

If you want to take a swim...stop at Mt. Storm...the lake is always warm and very clear!!!!

dan :D

I remember that flood in Parsons it was a bad one. I ride through there all the time. I take the kids and grand kids over to swim at Mt. Storm several times a year. I love that warm water. :D It's good fishing to. Yep the Tomas/Davis area is great and Blackwater Falls is beautiful. When I was a kid my grand parents would take me over there to pick huckel berrys. :D
