    Ok so if anyone wants to show up for this it's gong to be this Sunday the 17th. Figure on meeting at the McDonald's on 306 & 422between 9:30 & 10(am). As soon as one gets off at the 306 exit take a left and it's right after the light. Cannot miss my KLR, if you do your eyes were shut.

    So it's just going to be a bunch of KLRs this weekend? No Dr650s or R1200GS.

    Pics, what are pics?:D :lol3 Oooooooooooooooo you mean those doohickys with colors and lines and such? (and to think of it I have not had any to drink yet).

    Well they'll be coming soon once I finish uploading them. Too bad no one from here could make it. Even though it was some areas That I've been running lately it was fun. Got wet n muddy, played on big hills and sand and only had to pick the bike up 4 times (I think).

    Well this past weekend it was just Jdcooper, Soapybuzz and I.

    Meeting up at the McDonald's.

    Headed to our first gravel/sand pit.

    Cooper playing in the sand

    Buzz heading along the path between the upper and lower areas to be able to go up the hills.

    Made it up to the top.

    This time I finally got enough nerve up to go up the big hills but couldn't figure a way to get a pic of myself.:deal

    Next we headed to the RR tracks and some of the gas line.

    Buzz making it across the small creek and up the other side. He was the only one to get up without dropping their bike (I think his Kendas helped).

    The final destination was the old gravel/sand pit with the large ponds.

    Headed in the back way.

    Where is Tom & Rob when you need them for support (or for another hand if we cannot get back up):D
    [​IMG]

    Where did Buzz go?
    [​IMG]

    This was a track that went up to a turn around area that I had run first. Little did he realize that at the top there is a fair amount of large gravel and sand. He was find but Cooper and I ran up to make sure since Buzz was thrown off to the side at first.


    Well that's all the pictures I took this time. I would have done more but that would have cut into the fun way too much.

    Glad to see you guys hit it hard and had fun. It can be more fun with large groups but as a small group you tend to cover a lot more area.:D Keep us posted on when you ride, some of us have short attention spans.:lol3 Just so I know how far from Columbus are you?:ear

    Well for now its gonna be a hit and miss since I don't have a land line for the net yet at my condo I just moved into so if anyone wants to get a hold of me the best way will be to have HCM give me a call or get the # from him. As to how far, it's about an hour and a half ride to two depending on what route you take and how close to Columbus you are.
