    It's only about 10 feet past the open gate, right on top of the little whoop you ride over. Just enough off the road that I didn't see it before I turned down the trail.

    Too hot for me.... highest temp on the ride was 91F. There is a reason I like to stay in the mountains in the summer

    Dirt bike pits:

    That place is huge, and I did regret it in no time not loading up my TL as a "pit bike" :bluduh

    Swap meet area - not all of it fit on the pic :eekers.
    Most of the stuff is classic Japanese stuff, not much real vintage or European bikes though

    PJ looks so happy with her purchase! :happay

    I must've been focusing on the beer in the left one: :beer IMG_3126-3130.jpg

    general camping/barrel racing and burn-out pit area. It's a cow pasture when not used for camping... glad you can't smell it ;)

    and there was that... we didn't have access to the track since the gate was already closed. That's a bridge over the track

    I just hope they didn't sweep up the ashes in the morning

    Patriotic chopper dude and I were about the same speed during my test & tune "laps for history" on Friday. He was out there again on Saturday, and Speedy said he passed him early on. I hit 65 mph and Speedy, 67, and we both could've done a bit better but ran up on too much traffic. Not too shabby for a 51yo stock CB160.

    Fantastic pics! Can't wait to see some from your upcoming trip out west. Safe travels.

    Great report Silke! Made it up to "Mud-Ohio" for the first time this year with my CL450. Didn't get too many photos but your pics definitely captured the spirit of this crazy event, Thanks! Where was the burnout pit area, over by the MX/Hare Scramble course?

    Mud-Ohio :lol3

    yep it certainly was. The barrel races were in the middle of the general campground with the unwashed masses ... the burn out pit was in the back corner. It was really, really muddy down there by Friday (and really stank like cow manure)

    Good to see you Silke, I hope you enjoyed your stay at Mud-Ohio. I'm glad you got a shot of that Eat Ass plate.
