Well it seems like most of you are from Southern IN. You have fancy hills. Up here in Northern IN, where the land is so so flat and the roads are straight, I have sold the KLR and resorted to this...



I'm going to do away with the studs. This should be a little more comfortable for 2 up riding on these long, straight, flat roads we have up here. I may have to get a dirt bike or DS to get my fix though.
My point is, you have awesome hills. I wish more people in N. IN. were on ADV so we could have a Northern IN thread. On second thought, that might get boring

Anyway, cool pics guys. I have been down there a couple times riding. I always seem to pass thru Story and stop to eat at the Inn.

2 hrs is just the start of a good ride, plus if you meet halfway its only an hour.

When the weather heats up a bit and the snow melts hit me up if you are looking for someone to take a trek with, I am on the west side of Indy.

Nice ride mickdee!
Would be nice if we Indy guys could ride down south together.It seems like everybody goes alone,and run into the same problem as you on Saturday with that muddy section.
I'm on South side.
