    I would be happy to give you the tracks of today's ride, but like a dipshit I shut the track log off before I took off. Doh!

    It wasn't a planned route, but a couple people were running GPS units maybe someone can cough 'em up.

    We didn't have a set route and I don't think anybody recorded our tracks on gps. It's pretty easy to find good stuff east of Danville though.

    z@ch,

    I live in Gahanna too, 'bout 24 years now. I've known Solace for many years even if he won't admit it! Maybe by next riding season I will be ready to ride with you folks.

    Ride around randomly and explore, that's the only way to find that stuff. I never run my tracking "on" (too easy for the man to subpoena your GPS unit and then your alibi comes crashing down).

    hey, small world


    Don't worry about being "ready" to ride with us, we try to accommodate riders of all skill levels when we go.

    When you're ready to drop your Tenere, then you're ready to go ride "gravel roads" with these folks.

    What do you mean? Ej did fine on his blue one and Lisa has been fine on the black one. Is there a third color we need to know about? :lol3

    You're ready when you're prepared to deal with this level of repair after riding with these guys.

    So, I go out to get Ice Cream. The place where I walk up to the window and my order is handed to me. (Note, I never actually place the order. Yeah, I go too much.)

    So, I figure I should take a picture so I can carry on about some certain color motorcycle model. This came about:

    Then, not ten minutes later, seriously, same parking spot and everything. This happened:

    Who said the economy is bad? :huh

    What I intended to do, was to show off my freshly mounted Touratech GPS Holder thingy and GPS. (pic is in the prototype phase. No paint yet).

    It is awesome just because (I won't get lost now). Really, because I fab'ed up everything to mount the bracket there. So nice.

    I did ride a little. I had to "test" the GPS to insure it would register speed over 100mph. So, an Airport Run was done. What a rush. The "Super Tenere" isn't so "Super" when it comes to speedometer accuracy. 3 to 5 off. Or the GPS is high. Yeah.
