Never mind... stupid idea... I retract.

Glad so many had a good day riding. It was perfect weather for it. I also got out and rode some tight woods trails with some seasoned woods riders. Poor KLR might forgive me someday.

First some video of the hosts.

Today Meef and I did a good long ride looking for gravel roads and other adventure. We rode on paved roads, gravel roads, dirt roads, abandoned roads, used-to-be roads and found plenty of dead-end roads. Awesome day!

The day started out cloudy and cooler



The map showed this as a road



It got to here and the water was deep and no sign of a path on the other side



We followed a mowed trail along the water



Meef found a little homemade bridge and got us out of the woods



Here's another "the map shows the road goes through"



Maybe with a boat, but not two wheels



Meef makes a new friend as the sky clears



We found a wide spot beside one of the gravel roads with a few trails to explore





On the move



We met our goal to ride gravel roads most all the day



A detour up Rt78 for some bbq lunch



Plenty of beautiful scenery today



Another abandoned/dead-end road



And another; lucky for me Meef doesn't mind "seeing where it goes"



Another scenery stop



Once the sun was out the colors were abundant



My favorite shot of the day. The camera has a panoramic mode - hope the pic can fit in here



Another panoramic



Thanks for the ride, Mark! An excellent adventure.

Later,
M

hello again

Hello again Ohio...

Im looking for somewhere to exercise my new too me DRZ400... im still getting it (and myself) ready for a planned TAT ride that now may have to wait til next year ... or not.

having spent nearly every summer of my younger years at my grandparents farm outside zanesville.. and having ridden a bit around amish country and lurking here occasionally I know that Ohio has lots of places to ride... so once again I am looking for some kind soul to share.

About this time last year I rode some tracks that "Buildit" was kind enough to share .. that was on the Weestrom. This time around im looking for something a bit more off-road.. while staying legal.. I will have about 3 or 4 so days next week so any 2 track or single track or things that involve dirt, danger and mystery would be most sought after..

Tracks would be great.. or any other method ???

thanks
-Brian

You could always hit Perry State Forest, which is legal and free if you're plated...if your goal is to hone offroad skills it's a hell of a fine playground for doing just that as you usually have it to yourself, and it ranges from silty sand to mud pits to rocky inclines.

There are some outlaw trails and unincorporated roads around, with varying degrees of legality, if that's your thing I'm sure you could find a willing guide to show ya around to those.

It's long, it's hard and it's not a part of the male anatomy. Video of the private trails I was riding on the KLR. All the enduro riders drool!

Barber Vintage Festival

Here are some pics of our trip to the Barber Vintage Festival over the weekend. The turn out was huge, probably due to the nice weather across the country. I made friends with an engineer from Ohlins USA who took about 45 minutes and explained everything I didn't know about the shocks on my GS. He had a clear (plexi) shock that showed the inner workings and how all the adjustment screws and nobs affect the fluid/nitrogen. I must have asked the right questions, because he gave me his card and told me to call him when I get back and he would help me set them up over the phone. Also, the Aria trailer was there and I got hooked up with some new head vents for the XD since one side is stuck open and I got brain freeze last weekend riding through the snow. I did find the 73 CB450 I was looking for. It was only marked $1K! I couldn't get my wallet out fast enough, before the guy told me he sold it 15 minutes prior!! Oh well, I saw a cooler Cafe Racer project bike to look for while over the winter. Check out the Orange tank Honda below...

Wound our way through KY




Stopped for dinner here (my usual when in Louisville)


Continued through AL


Connie got her dog fix when we reached Birmingham


We went out Friday night and had way too many pitchers of beer and margaritas




Proven by mikes shoes


Saturday morning Barber




Air Show


Wall of Death






Connies favorite bike of the weekend


A more practical option for her dog walking/sitting business


An overpriced 73 CB450 with a half assed cafe setup


Debbie found what she needed (freeking motorcycle pervs)


Zero electric motorcycles let me play with the dual sport




$50K, 135HP, 285Lbs Ducati shown with street tail and without headlight asbly.


4 bolts and a single plug makes it track ready (2 bolts 1 plug for the front light/instrument cluster conversions)


8Lb all aluminum frame


Very cool 3 speed board tracker styled bike (out of Indianapolis) $2900


My redefined search is on for this bike to start my own cafe racer project.


Had dinner Saturday night at this very authentic Italian Restaurant.


On our way out


Stopped by Terrys Turf Club on the way back through Cincinnati

Man, I hope the rim just slid off the splined axle shaft. That sucks. Hopefully it's not some old guy who'll have to fix it by himself.
