The state of West Virginia is renowned for its fantastic twisty, undulating quiet roads. We took a Triumph Daytona 675R and a Victory Vision out to experience them for ourselves. We rode over the New River Gorge Bridge near Fayetteville where we stopped to tackle the New River Gorge Bridge Walk, 851 feet above the river.
It's the third-longest arch bridge in the world and the fifth-highest vehicular bridge in the world. When it opened, the New River Gorge Bridge was longest and highest in the world. This exciting ride takes about 2 hours and the view is well worth a visit, as demonstrated by how popular it has become over the years - there's even a purpose-built visitor's center at the northern end.

Heading back north we connected with route 250 up to Northern West Virginia onto Oglebay park resort. With three championship golf courses, a zoo, eleven tennis courts, a greenhouse, a museum, a planetarium, fishing, pedal boating, and much more, the Oglebay resort alone is worth the trip to visit.
This video was shot with an on-board camera on the Victory Vision and it's neither enhanced nor sped up. The Victory vision really is that nimble and can take corners very quickly without feeling uncomfortable.
