It's been working well for me too. I used to kill phones every 3-6 months before I bought the Casio rugged phones. She does everything I need. Like Mike said, not a Cadillac, but it keeps working.

Total nerd point here but the original line (which is not exactly the same, but close) is from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, it has been spoofed a zillion times from Blazing Saddles to UHF...

a paved road only tour of the Hocking Hills and Tar Hollow areas...175 miles of some of the best (but lesser known) roads in the Lancaster-Logan-Chillicothe corridor...


when is it?

Sunday, September 30, 2012 @ 11 am

where is it?

Starts at the Tarlton Market in Tarlton, OH
Ends at the Millstone BBQ restaurant in Logan, OH

featuring:

175 miles of scenic, twisty roads
gas stop at about the 90 mile mark

who's invited?

any and all with a two wheeled machine capable of sustained speeds of 50+


so, who's interested...?

105 miles to get there...
175 mile ride...

128 miles to get home...

408 mile day...

Piece of cake of my ST1300

Now not getting any speeding tickets? Very difficult... :(

Thanks to all for the offers of trailer assistance. Due to tight scheduling requirements I wound up renting a trailer at U-haul. Lawn has been aerated and I'm now nursing the blisters with a cold, beer filled glass at the local Winking Lizard. Wings already ordered.

Thx again.

Oakland gas station is here: http://goo.gl/maps/lhQTu

the gas station at the halfway point carries 87, 89 and 93, so no worries there.
turns out the gas station in Oakland is closed on Sundays. Closest other options are Circleville, Laurelville, Lancaster and this place on 56:

For any youts that's gonna come and play in the dirt with me tomorrow, unless it's pissing rain at departure time, I'm gonna do breakfast at Little Phil's in Somerset (on the square) at 9am (they are open on Sundays, turns out).

Then, head down to the Perry parking lot sometime before 10. Meet either place if ya like, ride some dirt, watch Craig fall over alot, etc.

Have fun all you guys doing Sion's road ride...stay safe.
