Glimpse of Appalachia

Eager to get to my first maintenance, I logged 300 miles today along the Virginia/West Virginia border. I figured this part of the World may be "exotic" to some, so posting a few stills from the GoPro.

Looks like you ride with your headlight on.

Can't tell if this is a joke. It's the law in the USA to ride with your headlight on for motorcycles.

However, I can't for the life of me figure out, must be one of those fisheye lens things, but it almost looks like your roads aren't straight. I mean, do they make roads that aren't straight and why would they do that?

Sigh...curvey roads.

Sorry for any confusion, meant to say it looked like he was riding on "high beam" because the blue headlight warning light seemed to be on. Yes for sure we all ride with the headlight on.
Just one or two on the forum deliberately ride on high beam during the day.
