I'm sorry to hear scarce o fat is now closed to moto traffic. However, right in that area but across IN46 is some decent riding. TC Steele road turns to gravel after a while, and then connects with Gilmore Ridge Road. That later splits into Gilmore and Deckard Ridge Road (both gravel). From that point they both peter out eventually, but not for a good while. They basically both end up down by the lake when they cease to be passable. On your way back out of there you can take Dewar Ridge Road, a mix of gravel and paved. It also stops by the lake, and even offers a lakeside parking area right about where it turns into Crooked Creek Road. Crooked Creek takes you back out to 46, just West of the old Ski World property. My buddy Jim, who I think may be a new inmate, showed me this route a few weeks ago. Nice to have that much gravel right around the corner from Bloomington. Thanks Jim!

You can choose what ya want but helmsburg road blows. It really is nothing special and drivers tend to be left of center and going fast. But hey just my opinion.

Good to know. It was just a more direct road that wasn't 135 so added the dots. On coming traffic left of center seems common when riding around here.

HNF October 26-27 and Loose Nut Nov 2-3 is what I have. Both have threads in the central US section.

indiana ride thread

While you girls were working today, I ventured out on a nice ride. I had full intentions of taking the Supermoto, but decided the Ural needed to get dirty instead. So I packed up my 50lbs sandbag ballast and headed south out of Indy.

Took the scenic way to Martinsville then took Bear Creek

and connected to Tulip Tree rd. turns out that's a dead end.


Cut south on Yellowwood rd. found some puddles


Looped around TC Steele rd




And caught Bean Blossom covered bridge for obligated photo


A great Ural ride. She's a ton of fun at 50mph through Yellowood especially sliding around corners, back end and sometimes even front end.

I'm off HNF weekend. Perhaps the Ural will tag along.
