Route 10 through WV

Hey guys. Does anyone live near Route 10 in West Virginia? I'm planning a December 18 trip down there (weather permitting) and just want to get a local's opinion of the roads. It's supposed to be 50 degrees. But if they salt the roads regularly (like they do in Ohio), we'll pick another location or head further south... That's a Monday but if anyone wants to join us, I'll be on my 675r and my brother has an R1.

If there has been any snow, they salted the roads, I have never been on the northern end but grew up in Mercer County, I live in north central WV and we had a couple inches of snow, they treated the roads a couple of times, if it's dry it isn't too bad but if you live where they use salt and you hit wet spots you better wash your bike after riding. Most anywhere you go in Appalachia they will have used some salt or mix of fine gravel/sand, riding now is a crap shoot, I usually just take a short ride when I know it's been dry and clear for a day or two but there is still a film on the road most of the winter, even when it's dry, so traction is not optimal.
