Ohio GS Riders Check in

Lets get a thread going that Identifies all the GS riders in Ohio. I have been looking for some folks that I can ride with in and around Ohio.

To start post what GS you have,
your favorite trip you have taken on it,
and where you are from in Ohio.

I live in Marion, Ohio kinda the flat lands of the state, but I make due.
I ride a '96 R1100GS, and my favorite trip on it would be riding to Wisconsin and through the U.P. of Michigan, and then back home again.

As the rides get cooler I'll let you know.

2012 gsa

2012 1200 GSA 17k miles, no riding this summer since I had to have knee replacement. Plus we moved to Catawba Island. I usually ride a fair amount with the Cleveland BMW Club. But now and then I go on a multiple day ride by myself.

Those R100's are cool bikes looks like 2 GS riders in the Akron area so far. I just hope you aren't Akron Zips fans.

Fan of the school, yes. Because of my education from there I can afford a BMW. However I could care less about most ball sports as following them eats into valuable motorcycle riding time. I know Hateithere and something tells me you won't offend him either if you make fun of our home town university's football talent or lack there of.

Stop over and check out Big Red anytime. Probably taking an early morning spin if you are around.
