Back Mountain Road though Cass to Durbin is a narrow paved roadway about 50km of the best 1st and 2nd gear Vstrom rides that I’ve had.

The Coal burning steam powered Cass Scenic Railroad engine gets hand oiled daily with about 5 gallons of bio-degradable oil.



Lunch in Durbin

After lunch we enjoyed hwy 250 to Monterey Virginia, then 220 north then Patterson Creek Rd. A great day of riding; a visual overload. There is so much to see, although we missed the peak colours by about a week, todays sunshine made it fantastic.
We stayed in the Diplomat Motel in Rawlings, south of Cumberland. It’s handy to our route on hwy 220, and cheap, but it’s a poorly maintained dump and no eateries close by. The bed was fine, we slept. Enough said, don’t come here.
Winter weather temperatures are closing in on us; hopefully we get home with no icy road surfaces.
