Work in an office on a concrete slab. Felt the floor ripple, and turned and asked if anyone else felt the earthquake. Only a few others had noticed it. This was in North Canton. I assumed it was another earthquake centered under Lake Erie, that we get every few years. Amazing it traveled through the Appalachian mountains into Ohio.

by the way, when are you planning this trip? If you say when, I'd be willing to bet that someone here will be free and willing to ride with you at least part of the way. that loop I posted above I have only ridden half of, so if the I'm free, I'd be happy to do the loop with ya.
Thanks for the info and offer to act as a tour guide. I will let you know when things firm up schedule wise.

Aftershocks from some good acid back in the 60's?

I like 145 out of Lower Salem also. 564 is nice too. I guess it just depends on what direction you want to head.

I think I'm gonna start collecting toll on the "Triple Nickle" to fund my bike habit....

Sit in a chair on a tight corner and snap pictures of the squids, sell them on the internet like Killboy, profit!

For extra fun, sprinkle some cinders to make the pics more exciting! Well, hell, it's 555 someone will do that for you.

I had to go to Atlanta for work a couple weeks ago and rode up US129 on my way home. I passed one of Killboy's photographers at one point, turned around and went back to talk with him. Interesting conversation.

He was fulltime...it's what he does for a living....taking pics of everything that passes. In the fall when leaves are on the road they will run their cars back and forth to try to blow the leaves off the road for the motorcyclists. They actually sweep the corners if there's much dirt, sand, etc..

At one point while I was talking with him a group of stripped down to the skivvies, half-naked, gay, sportbike riders came by. They were laying stretched out on their bikes, standing on the pegs, squeeling and shrieking like a bunch of girls when they passed.

One of them had nothing on but a helmet, socks, a black thong and butterfly wings strapped to his back. When he rode by he was sitting side-saddle on the bike, one leg thrown high, leaning his torso back and pinching his nipple.
















That image is now and forever scorched into the back of brain till the day I die. ..........I was traumatized.

BTW, took Deb out to lunch today at Uncorked in Roscoe Village, rode some really nice gravel east of Coshocton down to I40 and headed home.....odd things today, 541 we had entirely to ourselves. Not a single car or truck on the way or passed us. It was awesome, and strange. Beautiful day for it, too, perfect riding weather.

We only saw three bikes the entire day, and two of them were Vstrom 1000's like mine, one was a guy and his wife touring Eastern Ohio from Indiana, nice folks we talked at a gas stop in Zaneyville. Second guy on a Strom passed us and gave us the "V" salute. The third bike was a KTM Super Duke, which we rode behind a while, that's a sweet sounding machine with an Akro pipe on it.

That almost makes up for those days when I'm out and see 100 cruisers for every one KLR or DS on the road.

Low traffic

First day back to school around here. All the parents rushed home for some daytime sex with the kids gone.
