Stretching from Chesapeake Bay all the way to the Appalachian Mountains, Virginia is on the Atlantic Ocean and full of adventure for family. Named as the State for lovers, this would be a grand getaway for anyone owning a new SXS like the Honda Talon 1000X or Honda Talon 1000R. We all know life is better with Honda and the fact that Virginia promotes love, you might as well bring your significant other and take off into the wild world of off-road recreation. Also, home to the Shenandoah National Park as well as other attractions, the adventure begins with a simple plan and ends with countless memories here.

Virginia has a rich history, but not just in political history. The wild outdoors is teeming with rough, rugged, historic terrain to traverse in the fully bolstered seat of a Honda Talon SXS. The view from the driver’s seat gives off-road adventurers many scenes like rocky and rutted trails with steep climbs and even more alluring secret photo stops. OHV trail systems like Coal Canyon also open up many, many miles of enthusiastic riding opportunities.

If you are looking to come to Virginia to stay over the weekend or even plan a family SXS week-long riding vacation, you will have little trouble finding lodging as well as plenty of camping opportunities.

Sitting in the midst of a little town named Grundy Virginia, Coal Canyon brings to life the many OHV trails and opportunities here. It is estimated that there are over 112 miles of multiple use, well-marked and maintained trails here and if that gets a little tight then you have access to the Ridgeview trails as well! Coal canyon offers many types of terrain from rocky trails filled with gravel to large stone and the occasional mud bogs if the weather drops some moisture before you arrive. The Talon’s over fender protection should do a great job of keeping you clean, while the hard-plastic top keeps the vertical rainfall at least partially at bay. The safety nets on the doors also keep those big mud biscuits from getting inside the cab!

Sporting about 100 miles of trail, the Mountain View Trails system is a county-owned OHV heaven tucked into the St. Paul, Va. area. This system is well suited to providing SXS owners and their families with days of fun with panoramic views of the landscape surrounding them. In close proximity of a small town called Coeburn, these trails now connect off-road SXS families to local lodging and shopping. This Forest climate trail system has some hard pack trail including steep hills and a few water crossings. What this means to a SXS owner, especially those who have purchased the Honda Talon, is long runs of incredible fun. The Talon’s 999cc Uni-Cam design engine puts out great, usable power to the ground and the gear-on-gear transmission is incredibly durable. It all adds up to a great time for family and friends.

Most would think that they are reading a typo here, but in the great state of Virginia there is also a Pocahontas trail system. It is no relation to the West Virginia Pocahontas trails in the Hatfield-McCoy system, but still just as fun! Owned and operated on property in the county on which it sits, the Pocahontas system offers adventure to the tune of many miles of looping trails. Switch your Honda Talon’s transmission to automatic and enjoy a cruise down even the most rugged terrain and simply let the Honda Talon do the work for you.
