Roadways in the mountains can be curvy and treacherous.
If you are faced with a winding road, make sure you slow down at unfamilair curves.
Larger trucks are common on back roads across the state.
West Virginia is part of coal country, and that leads to hundreds of coal trucks on the roads.
One lane roads can be treacherous for motorcycles, let alone large trucks.
West Virginia roadways are not all paved and the ones that are usually are in some stage of deterioration.
