Thank you for this. This will solve a few problems for me when working on project bikes.....

Mikey, are you saying my DR200 is slow? Because that new bike is fairly quick.

For those of you who like bridges...

This is supposedly the oldest Iron Bridge in Ohio. It was originally spanning a stream or river some place near Alliance Ohio and was later moved to it's present location when it was replaced. The bridge was narrowed down to fit in the area it was located. A few years ago I made the original photo of it from the 1800's, the cover photo for our county highway map. The bridge also happens to be in the park just down the street from my house and was ffully restored and re-opened recently.

I also used it as an over/under as part of my training course for Cyclocross.

Overview: Howe pony truss bridge on a footpath at Oak Knoll Park in Massillon

Location: Massillon, Stark County, Ohio

Status: Open to pedestrians

History: Built 1859 by Joseph Davenport near Alliance; relocated to Massillon in 1899; rehabilitated 2010

Builders: - C.M. Russell & Co. (Fabricator) - Joseph Davenport (Design)

Design: Wrought- and cast-iron Howe pony truss

Approximate latitude, longitude
+40.78664, -81.52577 (decimal degrees)
40°47'12" N, 81°31'33" W (degrees°minutes'seconds")

Inventory number
BH 47482 (Bridgehunter.com ID)

Maybe if you put knobbies on the new bike it could keep up.

I once saw a video of a guy with a CBR900RR with knobbies

Northern Ohio Ducati Triumph received their first Tiger 800XC yesterday.
They had it on the floor today although it was not prepped and did not have the wind screen on it. It was a nice orange one.

Yeah, check out that riding gear she's got on. She looks good now but will she be as cute after that 500ft skid across the pavement?

Hard to leave a 500 foot skid when you're in gridlock.

Went to C-bus for the OHSAA Championships, my sons school won the D2 Championship. Stopped by the Pony to check on a new helmet and stuff. I didn't know they carried Klim. I tried on some pants, but just bought a new cheap jersey. Was a nice drive,but would have been a chilly ride.

I have to agree, she'd be a lot hotter in ATGATT!

Stopped by a while back and one of the sales people asked me what I rode. When they heard dual sport, they immediately mentioned they now carry Klim and ushered me to the section. When they saw my face light up, their eyes turned to dollar signs

Tried on a few things and liked some of the gear. I have a feeling my credit card will be crying for mercy next time I walk out of that place

How big is the parking lot at bike night? That's pretty much the maximum skid possible...assuming an awesome launch.
