Guy needing a ramp, do you still need one or are you renting one? I have a nice one and I work PT on the northeast side, right by the airport on E 14th, if you want I can bring it tomorrow.

Ice gravel get off

Well, I had my first ice induced get off of the year at about 35 mph. Little damage to the bike and a scuffed jacket a couple of jammed up joints and a torn up tank bag.

For all day weekend drinking on the cheap. The 24 oz. Labatt Blue for $1.09 each is tough to beat.
I prefer the Labatt's Ice, it's $.99 a speedway.

That beer is too cheap to even worry about reward points, unless you are drinking about a dozen a night.

Glad you weren't hurt too bad. I did that a few years back but at a lower speed. I jumped up and scrammed before anyone called the police!

North Canton isn't anyhwere near anything dirt unless you find an alley to ride down. There is very little left at all up here. You can leave my house and the nearest gravel road is about 15 miles south of me. From there it takes another dozen miles to find the next one. Head towards Holmes County.

If the weather is decent enough to justify vacation time, I may be willing to join you. As I am running low on it, it better be nice out!!

Glad to hear you are ok. The bike looks good with the new character additions.

I usually get the hop-heavy ones out of the way quickly, although the Dogfish Head 120 with it's super-high ABV supposedly ages well. It even says so on the bottle. But I've never aged one, I usually want to drink it ASAP

Gorman said it best about the roads up there, but there are some down south here towards Marietta / Athens. The stuff in WV near Mike and Kay's is way better even.

You camping or going for hotel?

Funny thing is I never really cared about hacks until I was working for HD. So no, there were no hacks in my childhood.
