OH hell yeah, Bob's is on. Also somewhat partial to Dick's Den... and if you haven't been to Studio 35 lately, you're in for a major WTF. :)

I don't know if it's still there, but every time I was in Clintonville, I'd stop by this antique furniture store called Euro Classics. I'm a big fan of Arts and Crafts (aka Craftsman) style and they had real Stickley furniture in there.

Yeah, he did a good job. I had a front-row seat for its final moments as a maroon bike!

Yup, Euro is still there and their stuff is still really nice. Gorgeous stuff.

That's it. Pedro runs it. Great guy. Two years ago for our 25th Ann. I had Pedro and his brother redo a piece for my wife as a gift. I had to sell a mint RD400 to do it and Pedro got every penny of that but it was worth it. It's beautiful

I miss the RD, but scored points to last the rest of my life on that one!

That offer pretty much stands for any of you guys, btw.
Great. Sounds good. I'm in Beavercreek and we keep talking about making a weekend in downtown C-bus. Last weekend I discovered some awesome new brews from a new brewpub at 4th and 4th called 7th Son. I'd love to have some show where all the good beer is

Am planning on doing a big bike gravel road ride in the Zanesville area this Saturday morning to help Krumgrinder (a coworker and friend by the way) get baptized into adventure riding with his brand spanking new bike. Got a route of about 150 miles with a lot of gravel planned out. Anyone interested in riding with should post up and we can figure on a meeting spot for breakfast/departure in Zanesville. Shooting to start the adventure by about 09:30 Zanesville time.

Hey Jim, thanks- I've been on Pacemont for 25 years, so I'm sure we've run across each other, know it or not.

I'm most likely in for the little bike ride Saturday.

I'd like to do a big bike gravel/dirt ride too sometime soon, but looks like I'll miss this weekend's one.

Started my city temp. Job today. Good stuff.

I suppose I should put a list together so we don't forget anyone Saturday.
It's Saturday (06/29), 10:00AM at McDonald's in Caldwell. I suppose with normal shenanigans, we'll roll out before 10:30, maybe 10:15.
I've put a bunch of roads together, it will be a mix of high speed (well, as fast as WRRs go ) gravel, some nastier unmaintained roads (so far they all have other ways around), likely a lower creek crossing (or two), and I've thrown in a couple of roads I've never been on for good measure. Expect lots of elevation change and many blind corners. Loop is not totally planned yet, but getting close. I can always add more miles if needed.

So far its me, Meefzah, and Mgbgt89. Mikef5000?


IIRC, someone was looking for a DR350 a few days ago? There's an electric start one on Parkersburg/Marietta Craigslist right now.
