Most named motorcycle/sportscar rides boast of how many turns or the distance of the route, not The Talon. What makes this ride wonderful is riding on the edge of the magnificent New River Gorge and the beautiful vista's you enjoy as you traverse it. Sure it has wonderful curves and even a switchback, but its the natural wonders you behold as you travel over Gauley Mountain/Hawks Nest that make it great. The Talon... the gateway to the New River and the wonderful WV mountainous backroad country. US Rt 60 from Gauley Bridge WV to Hico WV.
Come spend a few days riding the hills of WV. You wont regret it.
