He is a germaphobe but manages to work in a job dealing with the public. Kind of odd choice if you ask me. Yes he just wears the cheap paper dust mask.

I thought he was nicely trying to tell me I had bad breathe, but I noticed he did that for everyone. Lately I have been trying to work up a fart to crop dust him and see if he drops down into a commando crawl to get out of the store.

I'll stick with setting up loops in Southern Ohio. I do plan to do a "beginner" tour de Flatsville ride or two out here that will include a lap around Hidden Springs. Just need to find something fun to do between the rr bed and there. Hate to go outlaw in Urbana and Springfield.

I had forgotted that Bud's (hidden springs) was right next to the RR tracks until I saw it in one of the videos. A couple miles or so west of Hidden springs, there is an abondoned rail line that parallels the current tracks. Last time I rode it 18 months ago, it was very overgrown but there were some small hidden outlaw areas off of the tracks. The abandoned parallel track runs between Enon and Fairborn if you look for it on google earth. -mike

Tt-r250

I'm going to look at a TT-R250 tomorrow.

Anyone have any (USEFUL / Constructive ) Input?

There is and I was, but there was a rise in off-road riding and that's more fun so I stopped riding in that area. From Lisbon south there are hundreds of miles of gravel and un-maintained roads that I'm sure can take you to the Wayne National Forest area.

I've also been tagging good roads between Massillon and Coshocton and Massillon and Central Ohio between Coshocton and Loudonville

That being said, I plan to start going back down as the days get longer and I can take half days during the week or on days I'm not going full off-road. I welcome company but be warned, I sometimes get into places most people won't take a dual sport.
