If you post this question in the dedicated "west side of Athens" thread you may get some replies.

BTW were any of y'all on Washington CR 138 between SR 260 and SR 26 on Sunday? It leaves 260 just outside of New Matamoras and joins 26 in the thriving metropolis of Rinard Mills just north of the Wash-Monroe line. We were digging potatoes on the farm and 3 dual sports went by, a few minutes apart. I wished I was riding and then went back to picking up potatoes

That was a fun section,wasn`t it? That`s the type of stuff I like. Sorry you guys waited for me but I was taking it very easy on the new engine,breaking it in......(that`s my story and I`m sticking to it.) Good to see you again.

But giving credit where credit is due - I'm sure that Athens Club had a 'minimum standard' to maintain their reputation and if you finished, mission accomplished!

But I'm glad you took it on - I'm sure your learning curve took had a steep turn - which is how we learn.

I think the Athens Club Milk Run enduro is probably soon-to-come - intested?

Maybe we can hook up at the Nutcracker 200
(there may be something to that name too. . . )
Is anyone planning on just doing the Nutcracker adventure ride instead of the DS? I might have enough spare time this Saturday to ride it on the WeeStrom.

Only thing I saw about times was 07:00 for registration and ride starts at 08:30. I just assumed the adventure ride started the same time as the DS ride.

Edit: Looks like the riders meeting is at 08:30 and the ride starts immediately afterwards. Not sure it it is just for the DS ride or both.

If this is basically the same area as the Hanging rock, it will be both groups starting at the same time. From what I heard the ADV ride will do a lot of the same gravel roads we ride around TH. They may even include some of the trails that used to be hard since they have bull dozed so many of them this summer.

Trust me - your riding style is 'taking it very easy on the engine'. . .

I've always heard that a bruised rib is just as bad as a broken rib.

I never found that a comforting information.

Want to team up Saturday for the Ball Breaker 200?

How about you mmorgan? I'm working on Big Ohio currently.

Conditions could be 'prime'.

Don't know if any of you guys are into geneaolgy, but I found the LDS has put the 1940 census online, including scans of the records. Having paid subscriptions to ancestry.com, it's amazing to see this for free.

It's also pretty cool to see family groups of people you know. The direct link to the 1940 search engine is:

I'd be game for bringing the 650 down for the adventure ride. I was going to truck the KTM down and ride the 200, but I tweaked my back this weekend and I don't think having to pick a bike up 20 or 30 times is going to help.

At this time I am hoping to be there but time isn't on my side. I'd like to get the fork seals replaced on the 640 and ride that down but it looks like I may be on the foo foo bike.

I'll ride your foo foo bike and you can ride my KLR650 if you need more of a challenge.
