Anyway....

Side note, the bike is a bit muddier in this picture than the other tag shot in New Mat... I rode a ton of Monroe County dirt roads on the way home, and managed to get stuck in the mud on a downhill abandoned road that was apparently still in use by the Amish, meaning it was muddier than shit and all torn up from hooves and wagon wheels. Ended up having to strip the bags off, lie the bike on it's side, and drag it out of the rut; then walk it under power about 1/4 mile back up the road I had just come down. Took about an hour....
Tuesday's are no good for me, but if you're down this way again, let me know. I'll be happy to follow you around & take pics (or video) of the Tenere stuck in the mud.
I may even be able to keep you from the predicament... BTW, what road was that? I'm a little weak on road knowledge north of Woodsfield.

I just put them on my F650, I have only put about 50 miles on them, but I'm happy thus far.

Groves Rd, TR 38 / TR 111, east of Malaga off of SR 145.

GPS shows it as a through road, but looking for it now on Google Maps it is obviously not.

Yeah, it's what I have been running on my Strom for probably the last 3 years or so. I like them quite a bit but I'm not expecting them to last long under a heavy bike. Guys with the 1000 Strom report not stellar mileage, but WTH, they are fairly inexpensive still.

Tag



James W Clark fire station, Freeport Ohio
Although it was a stop on the Underground Railroad in it's day, more recent notoriety came when the local Czar led the townspeople to cross the nearly frozen Lake Chlyamedia, and then launched a daring midnight raid on the mods of ADVrider, and thus, successfully freed Whitey.

I was going to strategically wait to post the new tag until it would have been too late for Meef to get it tonight, and he would be working tomorrow.

Close, 1.2 miles away.

Former Dennison High School, once home of the Railroaders. Now the Claymont School District Intermediate School, home of the Junior Mustangs.

I seriously never noticed all those steps until today. I'm gonna have to ride up them this summer.

Riding up steps at a school and trespassing in the current tag.....Your beginning to act like our current chief of police here in Chillicothe. (Google it).http://myfox28columbus.com/shared/ne...ding-640.shtml

Pffftt, how ridiculous. He was speeding, who cares; and he yelled at someone in a bar?

Last time I checked that's not a "bar fight"; a "bar fight" is getting a broken pool cue shoved up your pooper by a dude named Juicy because you tried to finger bang his ol' lady in the phone booth.

We as a society have degenerated into a soggy bunch of pussies when even the respected institution of bar room brawl is softened by the media to include a man exchanging hurtful insults with another man.

Gah.
