    Welcome to the group. I'm sure someone with more routes will chime in. Also look over on Facebook. There are a few ohio adv groups that are a good resource. My vstrom has quickly turned into a pavement queen for the most part since I added a DRZ to the stable.

    Not much of a facebook or social media person, never cared for it, but I'll give that a shot. Working in IT I've grown to despise it. I have all intentions of forcing mine to be a dirt bike until I can get my hands on a 790r. I've been eyeing the 1290r at the local ktm shop in englewood but it's just to heavy for what I want it to do. Thanks for the reply.

    Yeah social media has its ups and downs. I've made too many contacts and such through social media to just drop it. I use it more as a tool to find people to ride with and events and such more than anything.

    Doing some variation of the Pike/Shawnee run tomorrow, leaving Spring valley around 9. Should be passing through Greenfield an hour or so later if anyone wants to join. Lunch/fuel stop at the Blue Creek general store or bring something with you.

    Another great day on the bike, managed to stay dry except for about fifteen minutes on the ride home. IMG_20190707_110610.jpg

    Doing some kind of adventure ride tomorrow, probably just a run to Shawnee or maybe Tar Hollow /Zaleski. Won't be getting too early a start, heading to the Celtic Festival to have a few pints in a little while!

    I'm out in hocking with a couple friends camping for the weekend. I think when we get moving we are going to hit moonville and then head home.

    A friend of mine on his Grom and me on the DRZ decided to do a spur of the moment moto camping adventure out to Hocking Hills and go to a ride on Saturday held by the central Ohio Grom Squad and explore on Sunday. We had an amazing weekend, road some of the best roads I've ever ran on the DRZ, saw more stars than I've ever been able to see, and found some cool sites.

    Found a new creek crossing today, really wish I could get some of you Dayton area riders to join me sometime. Prayers for the victims and those affected by the shooting. IMG_20190804_140819.jpg

    Damn.....missing another one. Every time these come up I’m either out of town or working. I usually get an email regarding these but don’t recall seeing one recently. Are they communicating these differently now?

    I didn't get an email from them either, saw it mentioned somewhere. On the AIO thread I think.

    Depending on what's happening I may be up for basic rides.

    Road tyres on the Tenere and I need to play on it to get used to the weight/handling.
    Ural is too wide for ATV areas.

    Now that I'm finally back on two wheels maybe we can set something up.

    That looks awesome. I think I need to throw my dirt setup back on and come out riding with you again.
