You may have a way to convert non-riders
Couldn't believe I didn't see a dual sport the whole week.
Shhh! It's a secret!

Most were probably somewhere "dirtier". Plenty of nice roads around the southern part of OH.

Can't say specifically what bikes I saw other than it was mostly cruisers. Did have a harley staying where we were. That steep dirt driveway into the place must have been a hoot 2-up.
Sion, I believe Magna is on the long list of bikes my brother has owned.

Hey guys, this is my first post so be nice. I felt the time was right due to the V65 popping up. Had one myself, fun bike. Took a vaca day next Wednesday and I am going to be heading down and exploring the Wayne National Forest area on my Wee. Tons of covered bridges. Should be great. Have a good one everyone!

Summer in Hocking Hills is usually not too much fun for serious road riders- the area gets congested with RV's, vacationers and pirate parades, even during the week. It's especially bad on the holiday weekends from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The county/township gravel roads, on the other hand, are not too bad- but then, you have to get to them via the main roads, so some patience is still in order, and the ATV/quad presence is growing yearly as well.

Washington/Monroe counties? Lots of great roads depending on the surface type you want. Pretty much all of the state routes are curvy with elevation change and the gravel is good as well. State route 26 between Marietta and Woodsfield is pretty well known for covered bridges. There is quite a bit of truck traffic in Noble and Monroe due to gas wells, so keep an eye out. On 26, the trucks seem to be the worst between Bloomfield (SR260) and Graysville (SR537).

SR26 is the one that is highlighted on my map. Thank you for the info!

Maybe, let me check the fair schedule to see what is going on. I'm supposed to make 4h milkshakes or hamburgers or some shit a couple of days.
