Do we want to meet somewhere on the east side and go as a group?

That will depend if anyone else is thinking about camping. I'm on the fence unless others are interested. Looks like it'll be a chilly night.

If we're all just going to head that way Sunday morning, then I'm down with meeting a group on the east side.

Wow, I admire your strength. I could never sleep on a fence, that would kill my back!

I did this a couple of years ago and I think just about everyone was on a small D/S and trailered in. There were a few KLRs though. I come rolling in from Troy at about 9:20 am on my KLR all bundled up and got a lot of strange looks...lol The ride started at 10am so just about everyone was ready to ride.

Kory signed me up with a couple of other KLR riders that had no clue what they were doing either. We made a wrong turn after lunch and got lost because we were just following the leader and not the route sheet. We finally made it back and all the food was gone and we were officially in last place....lol

I think I'll try to follow the route sheet this year. ;)

I should be able to make this. How about picking a spot to meet where we can get some breakfast?

gun show at the franklin county fairgrounds Saturday

Anybody going? A while back I told you I had a friend from Australia coming to town that wanted to see a gun show. He flies in tonight so it looks like this one is the only opportunity to take him. Ive never been to a show. Its from 9-5. Thought I would either go from 9-11 or 2-5 I have some work to do in between.

Don't know what you consider SE, but I like to think I'm as far as you can get at the same time in OH. I'll be riding up Sunday morning on my WR250R.
Probably ride SR60 (the most boring road in SE OH) up to Beverly, then SR83, SR284, SR146, Wolfe Run Rd., Clay Pike, Spry Rd, then 40 to the Church. Will likely leave around 7:15, should be there about 9AM.
If anyone is along the way, I'll be happy to meet up.

Expect it to be assholes and elbows,elevated prices if buying and deflated prices if selling. If you buy or carry anything, expect to get stopped once every 10-20' and the rifle or pistol to get nitpicked over even the most minor crap then they offer you a quarter of what its actually worth or they say they just wanted to see it and walk off. But,at least there's beefjerky vendors.
