Goal:

Get to my house to East Liver pool. That needs fine tuned

East Liverpool to Kentucky Have points 3/4 of the way to US70. I had a good set from near the S bridge North but somehow managed to lose them. It went from there to Uhrichsville.

So far I have points from near me in Massillon south to Coshocton and or Newcommerstown.

Baltic is as far NE as you can get before chip-seal becomes the norm.

Dundee to Wilmot will be back if and when they replace the bridge. Wilmot to Brewster is 80% gravel.

There is also the 1st state route that runs from Millersburg to Port Washington which isn't too bad. I had some tracks from Loudenville to Coshocton Also.


Here's the bad part. My bikes all have 7+ gallon tanks and I keep forgetting to make sure to get near fuel.

There's way more gravel around there than shown.

Garmin (at least on my GPS) regularly shows dotted lines when the road si actually paved, and more often shows a solid line when the road is actually gravel, goat track, or non existent.

Yeah, found the same on Garmin's mapping. When in doubt, I'd check the county (most have some mapping online) and then look on Google Earth and view way down to check the road. The way to tell gravel from concrete from the aerial view (and it can be difficult) is to look for anything crossing the road, especially what are surely gravel or dirt access ways. They'll match the road surface and color...whereas paved they'll be different. Also abandon roads will often look rutted, but not consistently (which might happen with tire wear on pavement). The ruts will come and go on dirt or gravel.

I've been wrong here and there, but mostly you can figure out gravel and abandoned roads from the aerial view. If it's entirely covered by trees, that's usually a good sign it's abandoned too...or at the very least a pretty road.

Oh contraire, I know my ladies. I was raised in a fatherless household full of hormonal women, and had to complete decade-long Jedi-like training on the ways of the ladies.

I'm super in touch with my feminine side. I've seen The English Patient 12 times, and I know that no one puts Baby in a corner.

Pee sitting down, too, because it's just respectful.

I can't wait to see the first person Go-Pro perspective of Whitey stepping on Indypup's head.....

Hopefully he's got the 'multiple camera angle' setup going by then!

More than likely he could film it in 3D, it would get 10 trillion views making himself $10 million, he'd buy every bike you guys lust over and then ride the piss out of them and do video reviews to the point you all wouldn't even want to ride them anymore. Then you'd be stuck riding old KLRs because it's the only bike he doesn't do any filming on. So be careful what you wish for.

The fatal flaw in the scenario is that we would have to watch the videos to begin with, which I do not, so therefore I would have no fawking clue what bike it was on, nor would I really care.

Speaking of lusting after bikes....I get to buy another one....I got Krista this for Christmas:



So now I have a free pass to buy another bike....Debating between something Stromish or another small 250ish something or other like a WRR or some such thing...

you should be our guinea pig and buy one of the new Honda adventure bikes (either the NC700X or the CB500X) so we can find out first hand how good (or bad) they really are.
