That isn't the balogna sandwich place is it? I don't know where or what the name of the place is, but they've been on national TV for these balogna sandwiches.

I hope you hit 315 from 270 north for some fun. Not much else I've found yet... although there appears to be some back roads here near the Scioto River just west of me. I don't know how much, but apparently there are some that kind of wind around.

You want some fun, go over to Martinsburg and run 541 over to Coshocton and back.

Twitchy? Maybe for some, but not this "I".
Smoothness is no problem, keeping attention on the road versus the scenery of course since that is what this "I" enjoys most about riding - the interactive nature of it.

Just sayin' it depends on who "I" is.
This I agrees.
