That Diamondback Loop is part of my planned Saturday ride. The routes that Steve and co. put together for 2007 were great.


Then don't forget to go over Roan Mtn!

This looks paved.  Has anyone ever been on this road?  I'm going to make it part of my Saturday ride.

I believe it is paved!   Bigok

SR 738 (Caroline, Hanover, and Spotsylvania Counties)

State Route 738 is a 38.38-mile (61.77 km)[69][70][71] secondary state highway in the U.S. state of Virginia between Richmond and Fredericksburg. It begins at State Route 646 northwest of Hanover, heading north and west to cross U.S. Route 1 at Gum Tree. From there it heads gradually west and north, mostly along an old alignment of State Route 1 (now US 1), through Coatesville, Chilesburg, and Partlow. SR 738 ends at an intersection with State Route 208 and State Route 606 at Snell; SR 208 continues northeasterly via Spotsylvania to US 1 south of Fredericksburg.

Rt. 16 from Marion to Tazewell.  I believe this section has now been officially named, The Spine of the Dragon, or some crap like that.   Rolleyes

VA-80.  Penalty for screwing up is pretty big.



 Crazy  Back in 1998 I rode a Kaw Vulcan Classic 1500.  I got on the BRP in Asheville, heading for a rally in Boone.  I was tired of throwing that big cruiser around the twisties and said to hell with this and decided to get off on Hwy 80    Boy was I in for a treat,  Lol  Went from the frying pan into the fire.  I would love to ride it again with the C14  Bigok

Well, while there is no room for error on NC 80, the penalties on VA 80 for an error are much more grave.

Speaking of roads...

I will be coming down Thursday from just north of Fredericksburg, VA, and wondered about advice on a good route to take to Sparta.
I assume the BRP is the obvious choice, but wasn't sure if it's the best.  I have driven a good part of it several years ago, but never ridden it.  Anyone know of a better twisty back road option from there?

Those are some awesome looking roads.
Looks like this will be the first ESTN I will be able to make.  I'm looking forward to this.  


It's been a while.  It'll be good to see you.   Thumbsup
