Good Ride Share amongst Friends---!!!

OK-I wouldn't do this except that my ridin days are getting fewer...lol...
I just wanted to share a good ride or two that's very little known, and I would like to see it stay that way...lol...
I call this one the Pistolero... It's about 150 mi. of some very good twisty roads with a relax every once and again... Maybe even lunch in Jonesville Va. ... If you leave US25E on the North side of the tunnel South of Middlesboro Ky., take the lil short side trek twisty run off SR-988 up to the Pinnacle Rock, it's a very nice view plus a lil short twisty up & back... Also note the state is working on the Hwy 70 bridge at Kyles Ford in Tn. but they say a very short delay may be required...

I love this lil ride... If you are in that area and like the twisties, take it it's great lil ride, and not crowded yet... Chuck has rode part of it, I'll bet he'll agree that it's a very good ride...
So, whose next to show a good ride...???

Yes I will agree. Had a ball riding up that way. The 750 was a blast on those roads. The 1500 will be fun but at a slower pace I suppose.

Yep, old 25E, but it throws me because it don't wind across the mountain by Cudjo's cave...lol...
Here is how it looks now, that OWR (Old Wilderness Road) that shows is not even a gravel road, I call it Old Wagon Road, but it's more like a sled road, completely ignore it...lol...

If you go to google maps and satellite view you can get a better picture of what I'm trying to say...lol...
