I'm a new BMW owner with a K1600GT and I'm looking to stretch my legs out on a twisty road safari into the deepest darkest Appalachia in a few weeks. I'm posting here to get recommendations on "don't miss" roads, stops, eats, sights, and places to flop for a night. This will be a two day trip through the area of the Shenandoah Valley and off into a loop through West Virginia around Green Bank, Snowshoe, Seneca Rocks, etc. We probably won't push too much farther south than Charlottesville VA on this trip as we'll be returning back to the DC area before the weekend is over. Another trip is planned for June to get down to Deal's Gap and the Smokey Mountains area that will be a week long romp.
