    at this point it's posted everywhere anyhow soo..any unsavory characters reading this who want to steal my shit, we shoot first....

    6318 State Route 656
    Marengo, OH 43334

    Some GPS's screw it up, I know Buildit's had him about 6 miles away, so I suggest double checking. We are 1/2 mile west of SR 314 on 656, log cabin A frame on top of a hill with a stone mailbox

    The weather forecast sounds like it is getting better, rain should be gone by depart time, if anyone else is running late, and wants to catch up with us, my # is 419-295-7226

    Bike is prepped and ready to go. Won't mind too much if it's raining when I leave since I know it will be clearing up tomorrow for the ride.

    Turkey was awesome.

    This is just the first 5 minutes of the ride. Once I get BuildIT convinced he should edit my videos for free I'll post the rest. :evil

    Ok, I have 5-6 tires that need to find homes. FREE
    Not good enough for enduro racing anymore, but really good dual-sport tires.
    They are mostly Michelin s-12 and some others. 18" and 21".
    I am in Columbus, if you want some, PM me.
    I have more than I can burn up in a reasonable time.

    So how was the ride today, fellers?

    I briefly thought about showing up for an hour or so before work, but when I got up at 7 it was pretty grim looking and I just didn't have the motivation to ride 2 hours there only to basically turn around and come right back.

    It Stone Quarry passable now?

    Given the weather I decided to play it safe and enjoy my version of black friday, OSU style.

    Sion and I riding together is just BAD news. Thats the 3rd time we have rode together and every time he has had bike problems. Or maybe its just the Danville curse. We didn't ride Stone Quarry. Didn't want to gimp up my leg any worse. It started snowing about 2 miles from home. It was a short ride but a fun ride and good to be back riding with you guys. Thanks again Matt.

    For what it's worth -

    My cousin had his pick up truck broken into at the Dorr Run trail head last weekend. Knocked out the rear window. Took his(empty) jeans and left $1000. of tools behind the seat. Guess his fence is stocked up on tools - not worth the effort. What would they do with tools anyway?

    Tough keeping the meth habit going with X-mas gifts coming due for 3 sets of in-laws. A real criminal would take the challenge of a Wal-Mart parking lot.

    I don't like to hear this is happening but it seems to be S.O.P. nowadays down at the Wayne parking areas.

    Just a heads-up if you're thinking of parking down there when there's not many riders around the lot.

    I just got home, it was a cold ass trip from Danville to my house, snowing pretty good when I pulled into my driveway.

    We had some annoying KLR 250 issues, resulting finally in tearing the carb off and down at the end of big hill road. Half the crew split off at Danville, Alan, Penner, and I proceeded to hammer the usual roads.

    We hit the bottom of Quarry. Didn't go any further than the split at the bottom of the hill.
