To add to to bikeridermark and ArmyJoe's recommendations, if you guys are hungry you can stay on route 56 until you get to South Bloomingville and get some large, greasy, messy, delicious cheesburgers at JimBo's Bar and Diner. You can then take 664 to 374 and get back on Big Pine Rd. to continue the rest of the trip they have mapped out. I've only been there once and it wasn't busy at all, but I guess it can get packed (1hr+ wait) at times (i.e. weekends with really nice weather).

Jack Run rd., Buena Vista rd., Starr Route, Big Pine rd., all good smaller roads.
Big Pine!!! Love that road, from one end to the other...

Geat info guys! I really appreciate it. If anyone is interested, we'll be heading out of the London area and coming down 56 and probably stopping off @ the recommended burger joint. Then going through the other roads. I'll be on my strom, but the other 3 bikes will be cruisers. So it will be a relaxing pace, especially with one newbie and another that hasn't been on a motorcycle for about 20 yrs. But...if anyone is interested in meeting up, let me know. Once I get my route mapped out, I'll post it here.

Jimbo's is very biker friendly. It might even be a rare occurance for someone to go there in a car. When I went, there were 3 bikes leaving as we pulled in and a handful of bikes that showed up during our meal and as we were leaving. Most were cruisers and one was on a Goldwing.

I think Jimbo's is cash only, FYI.
