I'm not real sure how this ride made it onto…
Written DirectionsStart in East Liverpool, Ohio. Cross the Ohio River into West Virginia on the Route 30 bridge and then get on Route 2 heading west through the town of Chester and Newell (both towns are notorious for speed traps!), WV. Route 2 will follow the Ohio River and begin to turn south. Now look for a sign on the left saying Route '208' which is also known as Waterford Race Track Road. This road will run approximately 7 miles through the woods and end at Route 8. If you go northbound on 8, it will intersect with Route 30 and you can take that into Liverpool Ohio and make a complete loop from where you started.
SceneryThe route starts in eastern Ohio on the Ohio river and immediately crosses into WV. The first half of the route hugs the Ohio River right across the river from the official US Government named "Ohio River Scenic Byway" so you know it has to have nice scenery. The second half of the route heads into heavily wooded areas as you twist your way through the turns!
Entering a few of the turns ... "some of these curves are marked as 25 mph....and a couple of them Ifeel is about 5 mph TOO FAST for me to handle": Sandman
Road Quality: 4
There are a couple of rough patches at the start (on Route 2 in Chester). This road will be an extremely challenging road for Sportsters if run fast. Hairpin curves are cage rated from 15-30 mph. One spot could be dangerous though traffic is generally light and the overall road conditions are what I'd call above average. This second half of the route is Route 208 or also known as the 'Waterford racetrack road'.
