    The pic with my bike in the creek is located at N39 19.505 W85 05.526, or south east of Oldenburg where pine road crosses pike creek , the others were taken at the location I listed in response to RoadDad (near Guilford)

    If you are interested, pm your email and I can send you a sample gps route I put together that you might want to try if you are in the area...offer is good to anyone else that has an interest as well.

    I rode a dual sport ride a few years ago and we rode through Story west and ended up on a rutted dirt road through heavy forest ending in someone's backyard for lunch. I've since heard that road/trail has been closed. Is that Nebo Road, if not is it still open? Thanks, Racer

    Did you leave 135 at story? Was there a T at the end with a dead end bridge one direction and the trail on the other? If so that has been close for years unfortunately and is known as combs.

    Great scooter. We have 2 Stellas. Selling this one only to make room in garage for a different 2 wheel toy.
    Clean title in hand. Only issue I've had is rear light is intermittent. I've never ridden at night so it's never been an issue.

    Yup that was it. As I recall, lots of mud and deep holes. Is it open again? Who closed it and why?

    I believe he has it sorted... Finally. Took several messages and his manhood being questioned.. But he finally prevailed.

    I can recall another member struggling with his machine as well a while back. He took a different approach. Something about having a long talk with his bike... And finally leaning his shotgun on it over night...

    Seems things went pretty smoothly after that. Lol...
