I could be up for a gravel road tour this weekend. What day are you thinking?

Sunday weather looks a little better. Probably go for a 10 mile trail run Sat morning, so that would put me out near noon. Sunday does seem to be better.

Pretty open to meet up spots, I was looking around some Noble Co stuff last Saturday. I know a kind of cool route from Marietta to Woodsfield & back. I can just kind of go with the flow. I'll have the WRR so 75-80mph is about max.

Sunday is fine by me. I can meet you somewhere in the Marietta area if you want to do the Woodsfield route. I'm not a speed demon so the 75-80 max speed should be fine . I'm located just south of Crooksville for reference.

Well sometimes 90 feels good on a short section of 26. Whatcha riding so the route can be tailored accordingly? I put a GS in a place he didn't want to be earlier this year. Don't want to make that mistake again.

Anyone else want to tag along? I'm open to whatever pace.

It looks just about as dirty worthy as GS650 or Vstrom
Don't forget that Honda Transalp 600 and 650 both have 21" wheels. Africa Twin too.

Blasphemy!!

They're smooth non-oil burning V-twins that don't puke do hickies or require milk crates for luggage. Plus they have a redundant (?) ignition system. Each cylinder has 2 plugs, 2 coils and int's own CDI so if one fails, I can still ride home on one cylinder, which I have had to do. Luckily Honda fixed that issue.

Bummer is they do have a 17" rear. I try to recycle all my old tires from the 950 to either the 640 or the front of the Transalp but rears are always bought new on the TA. Last month I broke down and bought both tires new for the TA so I'd have good skin for the winter.

I'm sure that's banned here. I was watching the start of the Geminid meteor shower.
