Adventure in Ohio?

Howdy,
I've been lurking around here a bit lately, this whole adv. thing looks like a real ball. Any other Ohioans around? Where do you get dirty at? I know you can ride dirt/atv's in Wayne Forest, anywhere else?
About me... 29, married, 2 kids. I have a Yamaha FZ1 that I ride alot, almost 17k this year. It rocks.
It also eats tires so I'm kinda looking for a cheap thumper for commuting/adventuer. If you have a pile of xr/klr or similar parts that need removed from your garage let me know... I tend to ride around Coshocton (715, 520, 83, 541) and the like on pointless afternoon rides. I did some STing this summer- BRP, smokeys, dragon ect... Also a couple weekends in WVa. I prefer to camp. I hope ride with some of y'all next summer.

Ride on! Tim

Shhhhhh..........Quit talking about all of the good riding in OH. We have most people convinced that it sucks here so they'll stay away.

Welcome Tim!

Your right, Ohio sucks... nobody should try going down 800, to 26, across 676 to 555...


I can't say I know Andy, does he ride?

Yeah your right, those roads are bad. No way should you take 800 to Sistersville and have lunch at the old hotel there and ride the ferry across to Rt 16 in WV, nope shouldn't do it.

I don't know if Andy rides, I went to college with Andy at Mount Union

Don't forget how bad Wva and Ky suck too. No point of anybody riding in this area at all.

Yes, there's quite a few Ohioans in here, alot seem to be lurkers. But, no. We don't get our bikes dirty, nor do we ride when it's cold or rainy. But we do have a monthly bike washing get together at the Kings palace once a month.

I'm in Marion and you live where I come to ride. It is the nearest place with hills and curves to the Grand Prairie over here. I haven't done much offroading over there though. I agree about OH, KY, W.VA sucking though!

Tim,
You are now officially one of my many minions here in Riderland.



Of course, this means you owe total loyalty to me in the form of adult beverages, bribes and other things that please me.
Glad to have you aboard.

You should consider the BYOBGS II in NC or NY and the Ouray, CO rally.
