Summer Fun and Sun in the Dirty South Ride (evening of 6/17 to 6/21)

Recommended Posts

New road they are promoting in Kentucky. Route 160 on the KY/VA border. Calling it Dragon Slayer 160.

Sorry my GPS was acting strange kicks in eventually. My first run on this road so not super spirited.

Thinking about riding this on Thursday on our way home.  What route did you take to connect to 160

FYI,   I have taken 421 to 606 to 68 to 160 with ease and back road asphalt enjoyment. YMMV

Which way are you coming from? It is a great road, Pauly turned us on to it last year.

Most motorcycle videos suck and are boring. For some reason yours don't.

The people at the visitor office are super friendly.  I hope this works for them because Lynch KY could use an influx of life.  It used to be a busy coal town.

I didn't have time to ride a loop around the area, only 160 which is just OK IMO.  On 1 section most of the right hand (the up hill side) turns are blind-unmarked-decreasing radius.  The road could really use some signage, those ones should be marked 10 or 15 mph.

I like the area though.  I saw 2 bears.

Absolutely  they were awesome. Got a personal invite and free t-shirt from the director ot the back roads of Appalachia to come back down and have him show me around the other roads. I told him maybe sometime in October. He was wanted to use my video footage for marketing and wanted to thank me for it.

      Looks like we'll be heading down through Daniel Boone National Forest to camp 2 Thursdays from now after work, explore a bit Fri AM in the Red River Gorge area, then head toward Asheville NC and end up at Maggie Valley Sunday-ish (wife has to be there for work Tuesday).
       
      The area is chocked full of the kind of incredible scenery and twisty roads that I love, almost too many to choose! I was hoping some of you could help me narrow down the really critical ones that would be the most to my likings based on your experiencences. 
       
      Incredible mountain/cliff/waterfall scenery is tops for me, as well as lots of tight curves with some excellent elevation changes thrown in there. Nicely banked curves and great pavement are a plus, but also the less engineered twisty backroads have a different but equal allure for me. A small amount of straight-ish sweeper roads or 35mph roads can be thrown in as well if they lead to incredible views or link to other amazing twisty bits (the BRP near Maggie is the best section according to the tourism vid)
       
      Fire away... Thanks everybody. Early 38th bday treat for me since the wife will be working at the Wheels Through Time Museum Tues-Mon the weekend of my bday following my visit.
       
      Decent commercialized tourist-drawing video:
