Pretty good motorcycle weekend so far; rode out to Peoli yesterday morning and got Bruced, but had a good ride before it got too hot, then went out in the late afternoon on the gravel with my neighbor/bicycle buddy. His name is Grasshopper. He recently purchased an 1982 Honda XR500R for $200. It doesn't have a title, it has a headlight that works but no tail light, no blinkers, no mirrors, no license plate, no insurance, no gear, no motorcycle endorsement. When you do something with the Grasshopper, it's always an adventure.

Had a nice ride this morning with bryguy and guernsey, started in OW, did all of SR 26 starting with County Road 26 in Morristown, then SR 676 over to SR 339, Dropped bryguy of in Beverly, and stayed on 376 to Macksburg, lost guernsey to I-77, and I came back in via SR 821 to Caldwell and SR 285 and was home at 1:15 PM. It was 170 twisty miles. We were dry all the way.

It was nice and cool today, we only saw 4 motorcycles on all of 26. We met 2 guys and we passed a couple riding together. The questionable weather or the early hour must have kept most of the HD crowd home.

I'm riding tomorrow with my best buddy Pauley on his Burgman and his banker buddy who has a HD that he rides when the sun shines.
Grasshopper's real first name isn't Pete is it? I've only known one guy named Grasshopper and one of the last times I saw him, he almost killed me, towing me behind his car on rollerblades in downtown cleveland. He stopped for a red light and I couldn't... sounds kind of like the same type of guy.

We had a great first running of the Trans Tar Hollow route. It was the perfect amount of riders and skill levels. To bad the guy leading the ride was so slow.

Thanks for the ride Luke, it was a great time and you probably only heard "too slow" once during the enitre day and that just happened to be a nicely rutted, rocky uphill that some more throttle would have done me nicely. Other than that it was "perfect" and the rain pretty much held off until I pulled into the driveway. Then of course was the yellow jacket that got into my helmet and stung me in the carodid artery right after we split up. I'm not allergic, but it still hurts and swelled up pretty nicely.

Thanks Steve, but I now have someone my size to ride with and he's faster than I am.
Yellow Jackets suck and I've been stung by plenty. I'll have to tell you about TDP 09' some time.

If that bike were a person the Dr's would be unhooking the life support and checking the donor card. You need to get a real DS bike that doesn't need a AAA card to ride. Your missing a lot of good rides!

Nice video Luke! It's interesting to watch the differences in the way people drop down that downhill corner.

I was the first rider to go down during the day when the front tire hit a rock and bounced sideways. That little hill has some good ruts in it that make line choice interesting. But noone got hurt and all the bikes made it home unbroken. So in short a good ride.

I got my "Licking County Loop" in today. I left Lancaster, hit Granville, backroaded through Alexandria up to Hartford where I met up with a buddy of mine and took his Trail 90 for a short spin. From there I headed through Homer and Brandon, went around Utica, through Martinsville, back through Granville grabbing a sammich at Knuckle Heads, and then back to Lancaster. 150ish miles, 2.5 gallons of fuel. Better than I expected with the 16 tooth counter shaft sprocket. I've decided that the E-start is a priority. It's easy to kick, but if it doesn't fire after a few kicks, that button just taunts me. I've also still got a gremlin in my low beam. Looks like I may need to go through the harness and look for a problem. All in all, I'm really liking this 640. I only saw 8-10 bikes that weren't on trailers today. Thought that was kinda odd. Oh well, their loss... You guys'll have to lemme know when you do your Tar Hollow deal again...

I got in a nice ride with my buddy Paul, mostly dry pavement. We started in New Concord on 83, then went 93 to all the way to 557 then to 39.

We went to MIllersburg and picked up the Port Washington Road, very nice, the Port Washington Road turned to dirt, but it was a perfect first time of pavement experience for my buddy on his maxi-scooter; hard pan Amish roads with very little gravel. We rode it back to Baltic. It was a 150 mile ride, I don't think we saw 10 motorcycles on the road. We stopped in Roscoe, there was a de-badged radioactive green adventure style bike there, I think a BMW, it had Touratech hardcases with lots of stickers, including an ADV.

So it was really too hot to ride Saturday, but today I had on my Olympia AST wth all the zips shut. Its really nice when its not so rotten hot.

it was under 100 degree F...so I'm calling bullshit. 110+ is too hot. A soaking wet t-shirt under your jacket will keep you comfortable up to triple digits.

I passed you on the 4 lane of USR 36 around 4:30.

elsinores up for auction

I remember some chatter here recently about someone looking for a honda elsinore to relive their youth. There is an auction thursday morning in Bellbrook (near Dayton) and they have two hondas - a 1976 and 1977 cr 125m elsinore. Unfortunately I can't make it, but if anyone is interested, go to www.sheridanteam.com. You may be able to put in a max bid ahead on time. They also have a 1980 KZ 750 E that looks nice. -Mike

They look perfect - check out the photos!

The next ride will probably be much shorter notice so that I can judge the weather better. Things worked out well this ride but my luck is not normally that good.
