    Chip, River to 87 to County Line is one of my short loops when I have just an hour or so to kill. Start on Old Mill down to River and find a way to head east and then back around to Old Mill. Short run but a great ride. Watch out for the Hunting Valley Police along River.

    Yeah, I love the lumps and bumps on County Line, not quite the triple nickel but fun none the less. Oh yeah, I forgot to say, when in Chag town, stop at Dink's for a burger and Rick's for a beer.:beer

    I found this today by pure luck. I road my MZ to Garrettsville to look at a three wheeler
    and went right past this. I didn't have a camera to actually prove it. But I do know
    where it is now. I won't disclose the actual location as requested in your post. Was
    a good ride none the less. :D

    Woohoo...

    I do have a camera and a phone with a camera, just didn't have either with me that
    day. I'll try and add a tag soon. I'm a single dad of two and my riding is very limited.
    I was suprised as all get out when I spotted the train! :D

    OK fellow NEO flatlanders. Here is I route I just took to Salamanca NY. Weekend trip 230 miles each day. Not worthy of a full ride report - not enough pics - but good enough for you. It is a good route and there is both a state park and a casino at the end of your journey. Take your pick. I took the best of both - rode the park and slept at the Casino - Yep even won some dough at the craps table.

    Head East and once you get past Greenville PA the terrain changes. Get past Oil City and follow the Allegheny River and I do declare there are some big hills and twisties.

    Check out the golf hole mid river. Its about a 212 yard par 3.

    View from lunch in Tionesta PA - Great restaurant serves buffet right on the rivers edge - forgot the name of the place but plenty of bikes parked outside

    Great two day trip and I would encourage you to follow the Allegheny !

    Chip,
    Gotta hand it to you :clap :clap :clap this thread has really taken off. Refreshing to see road names and places I'm familiar with having grown up in Portage County and explored much on bicycle and later on my Honda MT 125. I occasionally ride East and check out the house I grew up in and to see how much the area has changed or stayed the same.

    Hey EZ, I only started this because of Bum's prodding but it would be cool to get some gatherings together like the guys down in the Clumps area do. We need to stick together here in motorcycle hell. I haven't been posting much because of a busy schedule and a broken camera but intend to post up a couple of mini ride reports when I get a chance. I have been riding the wheels off my bike this year and am totally geeked out on Adventure Riding. I am sure there are others in the area and on the forum that feel the same, we just need to get them to gather here and check in once in a while. So if you notice someone out and about or elsewhere on this site give them the heads up. I am going to head over to the Beer Engine in Lakewood 2night to catch the end of the Petit Le Mans, this would be a good get together spot or some likely coffee house or pizza parlor.

    Now how about it, anyone up for a ride tomorrow? :clap

    Well, since ImEazy can't find his camera and hasn't posted a new pic, how about another hint on this one Blimpman?:ear
    Okay, back to work now. Man it's hot out there. Are you sure this is Oktober?

    I'm all for a get together and maybe an end of the season fall group ride. Tomorrow will be tough though cuz my daughter has a double header soccer match tomorrow. Although I could meet up somewhere in the long shadow hours.

    So, among the seemingly endless procession of obscenely loud Hardley Davidsons riding by my house today I notice a familiar looking Silver R12GSA.
    Could it be the Bum? I wave, I shout, I give the salute as he motors away to the east. Damn all you FFs for riding while I am doing yardwork.:cry

    Hell with it, I am going riding!:ricky

    Chip, It wasn't me - Must be another FF out there having a good time. I had driving duty all afternoon and am just sitting down now to watch the tribe.

    But I did manage to get out for a short 2 hour blast this morning before the kids got up - 7 am headed south through the park with the intention of picking up the tag at the gas station. Wouldn't you know it. Just past the stables the park roads were closed. Some ff's running a marathon! So no tags this morning.

    I figured all the rangers were going to be busy so I took advantage of the situation and jumped on a little trail :evil I know you shouldn't do it in the park - but sometimes you have to bend the rules. It was NICE.
