I go with the guys at Venturi Moto down in grandview. If you need some work or parts for an older bike, they're the guys. I'd be into meeting some of you, I've also been meaning to get in on some rides too.

Side note: I remember a long while ago some of you were having a discussion on seat covers. Anyone know what size staples I need?

There was a tree down so we couldn't ride all of it, but the section we rode had 3 water crossings, only one of which was "improved" with a sort of low water bridge.

I also believe we saw JustGo's Strom parked on Virginia Street in Marietta.
If I'm thinking of the right place, that was Jackson Run to Irish Run. :) one of my favorites. The water crossings actually had some grooved concrete in the bottoms? It would have been off of CR14, Archer's Fork? If you hang the left and continue out Irish Run, it goes through multiple slop holes and ends up at a nasty rocky uphill. Past the mud holes is not an ideal place for big bikes. :)

Did you continue out Jackson Run? It intersects County Nine and you hang a left to get over to 260. There is a white house that usually has some horses around at that intersection. Nine and 260 intersect at a location usually called "Yellow House" on maps. If so, that's my big bike route.

Yellow House http://www.mariettatimes.com/page/co...362/From-Yel..

If you would have sent me a message I could have met up with y'all, we could have ran gravel all the way to Woodsfield. Next time let me know. I swear most of the best riding in the state is in this area, but its likely because I know the routes.

Yes, that's it. Those were the roads. The tree was down apparently before the nasty uphill because all we encountered was mud holes up to the tree. The water crossings were mostly natural creek bottom, only the one had the grooved concrete.

We hit the tag and that whole area kind of on a whim. We were eating breakfast at Peggy Sue's and were like: "What to do...oh, tag!"

Sorry for any cross posting issues, but if anyone near Delaware/Columbus could lend a hand I'd sure appreciate it.

Talking VMD - Mid Ohio

Yea, screw the politics and whining its about old bikes and the people!

Been going to VMD since at least 96 or so. Doesn't seem like it has been that long

Been involved with a Brit bike group that sets up in the campground for like the last 10 years. Back in 2009, doing the Brit bike event suddenly became my problem . So, the event still goes on, Thursday to Sunday, just has.a bit of a different flavor.

If any of you are at VMD and need a place to escape the sun (or rain), your are welcome to stop by and say hello. We normally set up at the end of the first road in family camping we try for the corner at the end of the road. Look for the white canopies, Brit bikes of many flavors, and a banner that says: BritBike.com. Just ask for Rich or Ron, we are the hosts. You never know, we might even have adult beverages available. And if you bring your own we will have coolers with ice to keep your beverages cold!

I'm leaving the SM kit on it until after VMD. Every year I go to VMD. We leave on Thursday and come home Sunday. I'll post new about VMD. Maybe we can all meet in Lexington for some beers. I am ASSUMING you guys support VMD?
Been a bunch of times but usually just run up for a day then come home in the evening. I camped out one time and it was fun but I kind of felt trapped there. I mean I know you can leave and come back in but when you spend the money to be there I guess you wanna get the most out of it.
I hope to join some friends up there as usual and maybe do some fun areas around Mohican dam. Who knows, the options are always open.

Every year is about the same. We head out and meet at the coffee shop in Cedarville. Then we ride to Re-Psycle and look at whatever cool BMW stuff they have. After that we hit The Andersons in Columbus for good beers for that night. The ANderson is like the best gourmet food and beer place combined with a Home Depot. Then it's off to MotoOhio, which is only about 150 yards away so we go there and drool on the new bikes. After that we head up to Wooster to see Brian at All Season's and look at (drool on) the new Moto Guzzi's. Lots of droolin.... Brian's great. Once we're done there we head to Fast Eddie's in Bellville for Stromboli and strawberry laced garden salad.... and then Friday morning shake it off and head for the track!

Vbd

VBD at Mid-Ohio is good but it is on the same weekend as Wauseon National. If you like old bikes (35 years & older) you will like it. They race the old board track bikes and show some really rear bikes there. Come spend a day and stop by spot #465 and say HELLO. You`ll see things there that you will never see at VBD`s . Best swap meet for old motorcycle stuff.

Fulton County Fairgrounds
Route 108
Wauseon,Ohio 43567

July 19-noon on the 21st

No way that will be enough. I'll see if my dad has a stapler that small first.

One of my first posts here was after I took my V-Strom up Cullen Road/T 34 off of 26, almost my first time on gravel. I went up, but knew if I couldn't get out the top, I don't think I could have got it back down without dropping it. Seems tame enough now but it was very scary at the time.

Hupps Ridge/T 272 is pretty stupid if you get on the lower section off 145.
