Anyone interested in high speed gravel and some trail work, MikeF and I will be rolling out of Sunbury tomorrow on our trusty WRR's and working our way to Danville. Time is TBD, but at least after 10:30 before I can get rolling.

edit: 11am at the UDF in Sunbury, on Rt 3 near 36

Hell Matt, I need to relearn the tracks over there - have a full schedule of kids sports tomorrow, so I was out today. I'm mid-Delaware county too, maybe next time.

Coming back from South Ohio today, appeared to be a Blue KTM 990 (orange crash bars) two up heading South on 37 - just north of I-70. Anybody here?

Anytime. I have a decent route from Sunbury to Peggy Sues that I keep trying to fine tune, and I usually just wing it from there through the "Danville" roads.

Thx!

concur on the suggestion of Boondocks BBQ

then take 60 south almost to Beverly where you can pick up 83 north which give you several option: to 284 then 146...or 83 to 146...or 83 to 313 to 146

or bypass 146 entirely and go north of I-70 for your route back to C'bus

have fun...wish I could join ya, but I got work at 2pm

Good day of dual sport style riding once again....Mike, Alan, and I stumbled on a nice run of single-ish track, did the normal stuff, and had the strangest experience involving some "Deliverance" style amish kids and a old timer with a canoe......

If there are no pictures then it didn't happen!

My annual Jim-Bo's Ride is tomorrow. I'll leave Columbus at 10:30 from the BP station on US23 just south of I-270 on the south end of town.

Will get to Jim-Bo's in South Bloomingville at noon. Eat a big-ass hamburger, kick some tires then continue riding.

Later,
M

We're headed to Marlington area of WVA tomorrow afternoon. Leaving East main st. MickeyD's ( Chillicothe )about 1:30p.m.. If anyone wants to ride along, just show up. Coming home Monday.
We are actually going to look at a cabin a friend's uncle's estate has for sale. Plan is to sleep there if the key's out. If not, we'll stay in Marlington.
Bring a sleeping bag.
Prolly quick way down, scenic way back.

Id say. Ran right into them without any problems turning before and not at high speeds.

There's a metric shit-ton of Harleys out today. Well, technically an SAE shit-ton.

I've about had my season's fill of bandannas, Oakley M frames, perpetual scowls, stupid goatees and shaved heads, loud exhausts, and pointless engine revving at red lights. The last idiot I was behind at a red light was working the throttle as enthusiastically as a monkey picking at it's own anus, and his goddamn bike was running so rich that I swear, I could wring my shirt out right now and gas would sqeeze from it.

Fuckmooks.

I fixed one of those throttle jockeys a few weeks ago. He was behind me revving and blipping like he was intimidating me. About the 3rd or 4th light, I turned the kill switch off for a few moments, clutch out and rolling. Just as he rolled up revving, I turned the bike back on resulting in a rather loud backfire that brought peace and quiet. Wish I could have seen his face, those pipes are eyeball high to a cruiser rider.


At mile 575, hour 13.5, crossed the Indiana border 14 times in 100 miles, 2.5 hours to go
