Define "near".



Cause, there's no trails near Columbus. Gonna have to head east or south a good bit to find any real offroad areas or abandoned roads that are fun for the Tdub. Perry SF is another option, or the Tar Hollow rides that Buildit does for noobs might be within your reach.

I'm heading out here in a bit but will be available hopefully after 12, I think this thing today is just a deposition, and not a hearing.

Show up at McDonalds in Plain City this Saturday at 10:45 and I'll show you. Miles of rail road bed, Hidden Springs in Springfield (free).

No one has confirmed they are coming yet. Mike? Sion? Anyone? Is this thing on?

Darn it. I've been wanting to check out that RR bed too. I have a graduation party in Huron to attend though. One of these times.

Depends on if you are talking about Alan or me. I ride on the ragged edge of my skill level, all over the place, usually with my poor KLR pinned and crashing, missing turns, etc. Alan rides at a nice, smooth, controlled pace, about 40% faster than me at any given time....

As much as that sounds like a blast, I've got family stuff to do tomorrow...plus I dont even know if Dora will start...

on the plus side, Maggie gets a new starter and Sabrina gets her windsheild today and I'll be able to do some miles in the Hocking Hills tomorrow before/after the family thing

yinz have fun without me...

From there it's onto the RR bed towards Urbana and then some back roads towards Springfield and Hidden Springs where we'll do a loop around the property and ride in the creek before we head back to my place to hang out and play on the mini track I've made out back.
Make sure you're on good 50-50 tires that will do road and trail. It's dry so there shouldn't be any real slick stuff.

Luke, check your PM's and expect a call later tonight. -Mike

In case anyone is wondering the ride goes on even if it's just me. I'll be on the KTM 950. If your arriving after 11am in Plain City, we'll be gone.

90% bike 10% rider. The WR just makes it look like I have half a clue what I am doing. What time are we meeting in Danville tmw.?
