And the Dual Sport riders will rule those roads with an iron fist! Serious, I agree the recent dumping of money into back roads was a waste, almost as wasteful as cash for clunkers was.

I remember that, wasn't there a mini bike or something that Matt rode? (I worked for Jeff for a couple of years, unlike Rasthomas I was able to break away from the free and untethered life of a carnival worker).

No, no KLR... I found a 2003 KTM 640 adventure.

It just spins, so from what I've gathered here, it needs the sprague clutch rebuilt. It still starts and runs good with the kicker. If all goes well, I'll be swapping titles next Saturday. The guy just got a 690 and doesn't want to put any more time into the 640, but would like another dirt bike.

My turn...

Here's my Vstrom, which is paid for.

Here's another picture of it, when I first got it, paid for.

There, I feel better.

She is paid for... you can see it in her eyes....

Just an FYI....
I am hosting a NATIONAL ENDURO just 8 miles from New Concord next Sunday (8-28) in Chandlersville. You guys may want to ride down, there will be some things to see...
All of the factory guys will be there.

The "Reservation" is the name of the private camp where this is held, so don't let it keep you from stopping by to say hello or even camping on short notice, just send me a PM to let me know you are coming.

We currently have about 20 on the IN list, most of which will be camping and riding with us all weekend. There is still room for many more, and plenty of room for parking if you want to haul the bike over. Looks like there will be a casual planned group ride on Saturday that looks like fun. Much food and good beers will be consumed after riding.

Stop in for a quick visit, or set up your tent for a weekend of camping, food, and a lot of fun around the campfire with a bunch of great people. The site is situated near some of the best roads Ohio has to offer.

Didn't blink twice at the odometer mishap...so much more pleasant than Nebraska.

Anyways, unless I get swamped in the first week of class (which is quite possible) I will still try and make Reservations Required II. Probably won't know until the middle of next week, but at any rate, I look forward to riding with some of you.

Also, I took a small trip up to Eaton and Camdon yesterday, and it seems like the county roads in Butler and Pebble county are all paved! Does anyone know where some good gravel is that is within, say, 30 miles of Oxford?
Since I spent four fine years in Oxford, I'll give up a secret spot that I know. It is probably 25 miles from you and ,while not great, it is a genuine secluded twisty gravel road that parallels a rideable creek. Look on a map and find Farmersville ohio which is to the northeast of Oxford. Now look about a mile to the southwest and find Lower Gratis and Anthony roads. Now ride and enjoy! -Mike

FatherX and I rode to the Mods VS Rockers Meet and Greet at the Lion on Lorain. It was a good time. Royal Enfield w/ sidecar and a Cleveland 250 cafe all parts made in the city. It sounded really nice.

That has just enough ugly to be hawt!
I would add some number plates to the sides to cover the open space and give it more of a vintage flat tracker look.

After seeing all of the half dressed hotties at the fairs all summer long, I would think a nice fully clothed Amish woman would be a nice change of pace.
