Edit, and then I get bruced by a fucking minute????????


What was your range before? Your tank must have been tiny and 150 doesn't sound like a whole lot for a bigger tank.



When I was at the Castle, I swore I heard a thumper riding around. I even looked to see who what and where but all I saw were the festival people cleaning up. I came down 183 but turned left out of the exit to my parents. I wonder if you actually beat me there because after I posted it I tried to get a better picture from the front lawn but the sun made the building too dark.

Well this is on the WR250. It was 1.9 gallons, 100-ish mile range depending on throttle use. It's now 3.084 gallons (marketed as 3.1). I know this because after I installed it, I pushed the bike to the gas station with a bone dry tank so as to get an exact amount it would hold.

I was there before you, I'm sure. I rode home to post. I think it was around 4:00 pm when I was there... I actually rode 183 about 10 miles north of Alliance looking for that castle and then turned around and found it in Alliance. Someone told me it was "1 mile north of town..."

Cool!

Barking Spider trivia
Parking can be found behind the Coffee House on Juniper (ignore the signs).
The Spider doesn't take credit cards but they do have an ATM.
The pretty blonde with the big smile is the owner, Jenna.
If the music is quiet and you are loud, don't be suprised if she shooshes you.
There is no cover for the music but they do pass the hat (barrel).
The Barking Spider has live music 365 days a year.
There is no booze served aside from that grocery store 40 proof stuff.
You are welcome to bring your dogs (or cat) as long as they play well with others.
If it is raining we can sit in the back room by the foosball table and make some noise.
Otherwise the courtyard picnic tables are the best place in CleveOh to hang out, shoot the shit and listen to music.

Sorry, had to beat you somehow, besides, I gave you a 4 hour headstart.

One mile n of 62, not the bypass which doesn't technically interchange with 183, it goes over.

I call shenanigans, people from Mt. Gilead can't spell lacrosse (as evidenced here), let alone field an entire team.

I played at the Barking Spider quite a few times in the late eighties. That was before they added the addition. It was really small then. And I played there once since the addition was added and it is still small.
That being said, it is one of the friendliest, nicest places to hang out in Cleveland for sure. Always a bunch of good folks there, great choice for the ADV meetup.

Went to Quail Hollow for the first time yesterday to mountain bike. Great place for beginners. I did a few laps and then headed over to my parents house in Salem. I'm going to try to ride at West Branch next Sunday.

When it says attractions and programs I fear our promise of motorized recreation at the park is on the line. We know the ANTI-MOTOR recreation folks will be there in mass. We have been told by members of Buckeye Trail and others they do not want us there. We need to be there if we are to have a state park dedicated to outdoor recreation that includes us!
anyone else thinking of riding down for this?

We are. Planning to leave around 2, but a little flexible if you want to car pool.
