2010 Motorcycle Goals: West Virginia Mail Pouch Barn Ride
In July of 2009 I posted a listing of 3 New York State rides that I would like to take on my motorcycle. I am slightly modifying one of those rides to make a goal for this year.
Last week while in Pennsylvania, our travels took us past a handful of Mail Pouch Tobacco barns. There were a few I was unable to get shots of as we zipped along the Turnpike. That left me feeling like I’d missed something. I want to go back and photograph them.
With the help of ohiobarns.org, I was able to pinpoint the barns that eluded me. I was also able to map a ton of West Virginia barns using the information on their site. West Virginia, motorcycle, barns, farm land… score! For me that is the making of a great ride.
I would like to string together some barn sites and make a long weekend ride through the great motorcycling state of West Virginia. At this point I don’t have anything more than just a dimly lit light bulb of an idea. But, with so many markers in great areas how can I go wrong?

Be sure to throw a shout out if you are looking to add some company; hopefully the timing will be right and I can sneak away and get the Kawi out on a trip. 🙂
You got it, toots 🙂
There are so many spots and little mountain roads to explore. I’m actually excited about picking through the maps in detail.
Hey Fuzz… if the timing works out and if you’ll have me…
COUNT ME IN!!
You got it, Soth.
Looks like I’d better work extra hard this year to get myself a few extra vacay days! So much to do, so little vacation time 😀
