If I wait a few weeks to try to put something together can you ride down?
doubtful I will be allowed to ride in three weeks, seems my doc is pretty conservative about it. but I am sure I will see ya at the winter ride right? I am up and walking(hobbling) so it cant be much longer.
Hoosier ... born & raised ... still here !
mutineer is right ..... southern Indiana is pretty cool....
keep me posted about the ride mutineer
A Hoosier sunset from last Thursday...
I think I'm probably the only one in Vincennes posting to this site. Just did Alaska with a rental from Keith Hull in Palmer. Fly to Anchorage and he'll pick you up and put you on a bike. Its a must do. Have a 98KLR and just traded a Vstrom for a new 05 KLR. I ride mostly in the Hoosier National Forest, but just did a W/E in Kentucky. Great roads, well maintained, no traffic. I'm on the KLR every day to work and back, unless there's snow on the street. I'd be interested in hooking up for some weekend rides in Southern Indiana.
I'm a relocated Hoosier. I grew up in Shoals, Indiana. As far away from civilization as one can be in Indiana. I remember what it was like to experience great riding by opening up your back door and hopping on the bike and riding...no traffic, twisties everywhere.....those were the days. I'm in Boston now and have black R1100GS. I'll be coming back soon....not soon enough.
Shoales is where the fun starts, actually, 550 from Loogootee, then back up 150 to Shoales to the top of hill and take 450 to Bedford. 58 over to 135 or south there's lots of good stuff down to French Lick and beyond.
for those playing along at home, "Loogootee" is prah-nunced
fixed it for you
US 45 to Bloomington
A little fun with a cheap Photo Editing Program
Thinking about setting up a Hoosier Hookey Ride.
Between now and Thanksgiving day. Any weekday but a Monday or a Thursday.
Anyone want to call in sick to work and head for Story.
I am thinking about setting up a meet on the south side of Indianapolis.
I know this is short notice so if it does not work I get it.
PM's to follow.
I am up for it. Pick the day. I may be in SC M-W of next week early, but other than that I am open. Do we want to include a run by the Tulip Trestle for those who haven't visited? It is the second longest train trestle in the world.
Hi ya'll, seeing how this thread is kinda like Adventure in Ohio, I'd like to ask you Indianayians for some friendly advice.
I want to take a ride this Sat. into S/E Indiana and would like to find some good roads, and some good eats, and maybe even some interesting sites. I'm thinking that I won't get West past I-65 due to failing evening light, so what would you recommend? thx in advance...
PS - Are there any ferries in the area to cross the river? I know of one, just west out of Cincy, but am interested in others...
DJ, I never realized you were in Dayton. Are you talking about the Anderson Ferry? That is the only one I know of on the west side of cincy. There is another one on the east side, near Augusta KY. Just off exit 156 on 74, rte 101, is a place called the old brick inn, they have some mighty good fried chicken. There is also an orchard that serves frozen apple juice, although it may be a bit chilly for that. I suggest just getting lost over there and finding your way back. There are a lot of good roads. Are you wanting to hit gravel or twisties or what? I know of a few good water crossings, too.
Edit: According to delorme, there is a ferry at Vevay, IN into Ghent, KY. They tell me rte 62 into madison is a good road, but I've never done it. Madison is a cool little town, too. Very arts and craftsy. If it were colder I'd say visit clifty falls, just outside of Madison. A lot of high, albeit small falls, and they freeze in the winter. Pretty cool stuff.
Edit Edit: Delorme also shows a ferry from Aurora, IN, and one from 156 to Warsaw KY.
Hit me up if ya wanna meet.
thx 12, I'll have to check out your suggestions. While I'm still open to IN suggestions, it's leaning more towards SE OH this weekend, but I still want to explore IN some more...
PS - I'll get in touch if'n I ride down that way, you do the same if you're heading north...
This sounds like a Pally greeting What kinda cheese do you like oser
Maybe next Friday? I have no idea right now if I can do this but just throwing it out
I've been mostly takin weekend dirtbike trips of late, but I usually ride on the east side of cincy and northern KY.
Are ya takin the KLR or Beemer?
