    2000 YZF426 "street legal"
    single track any where I can find it
    2007 Ural Patrol 2WD
    anywhere it will fit :rofl
    I typically ride within 30-40 mile radius of the house.
    Wills Creek Lake area, a lot of unmaintained county roads to explore.
    AEP/Ohio Power recreation lands 15 min away tons of dirt roads
    I think about an hour commute on the bike to hook up would be the max for a day ride. My 2.1 gal tank (426) with no reserve limits distance between gas stops.
    Several years ago did some riding around Armstrongs Mills, ever heard of this place cannonrider? Not sure how much is still open to riding now.

    Ross County, near Tar Hollow and Scioto Trails. Ride back roads, twisties, will be doing gravel roads on the V-strom, thinking about picking up a DR-Z 400 so I can ride trails with some of these yaahoos. Going to BYOB in WVA. Anyone want to tag along?

    See my sig line for current bikes. (Super Tenere coming in May :clap)
    My day-to-day riding is on the flat-straight-boring roads around my area.
    Last year I managed to ride about 6000 miles. Hoping for more in 2011.
    I keep a bike (Honda Magna) in Fort Myers, Florida, and ride about 600-800 miles a year when I'm down there.
    About once a month, I trailer down to WNF to ride the trails.
    Hoping to link-up with some other ADVers for some rides this year.
    I usually ride as many of the organized adventure rides as possible (Hanging Rock, Nutcracker, etc).

    DL1000 Vstrom and a TTR250.
    I ride about everything, from single track to groomed pavement, I don't have any "nah, don't do that" riding.
    As for how far I ride to meet up with folks? Depends, are they cute and have a nice personality?
    :lol3

    I ride all over the state, as a rule, so it all depends on the ride and the time I have free...sometimes I ride from sun up till sun down, sometimes less.

    Adams County, about 90 miles east of Cincinnati. I ride my DL650 all over the great paved and not-so-paved roads in the SE part of our state. I also ride my Husky TE250 at Pike State Forest, which is only about 10 miles away, and at WNF as often as I can. I'm gonna really make an effort to try Hatfield and McCoy this year and also some of the organized adventure rides.

    I like rideing back roads, gravel roads, twisties and off road. Usually ride Richland Furnace & Wayne National Forest(South of Oak Hill Oh) APV trails, spend allot of time in Hocking Hills area and on Wayne National Forest roads. I enjoy riding the organized ADV rides, and the Road Enduro's when time permits. I help out with ACES Enduro's series and I'm a member of Appalchian Dirt Riders.

    640/950 Adventures - I'll ride as far as the ride is worth it. The more fun the ride sounds, the farther I'll ride. The longest I did last year was 480 miles round trip that included a dual sport as part of that mileage.

    250XCF - 15 miles by road, 100 by truck unless as mentioned above, better be a really good ride.

    I'll ride anything but prefer dirt and as soon as the motor is repaired in Frankenthumper, I'll be back in the trials business.

    Carroll County (Lake Cabin)
    2009 G450X - 10-20 miles to get to friends acreage, further by trailer for events or meetups.

    I'll ride anywhere, but I have strong dislike of interstate unless the bike is on a trailer.

    I live in scenic Doylestown (Wayne Co).

    I spend a lot of time combing the dirt roads of Holmes/Coshocton/Guernsey/Tusc/Harrison/etc on a KLR650.

    Most of my road riding is on a GSA. If I don't feel like riding too fast or stopping too quickly, my R90S seems to do the trick.

    Is Frankenthumper gonna be street legal?
    Got a build thread?

    Hello everyone, my name is Dave (Hi Dave!!) & am have a problem with vintage thumpers.
    All bikes really... Hondas,BSAs,BMWs,Harleys doesn't matter.

    I live in Stark County/Plain township,am a Gemini &
    willing to ride anywhere for a good time :evil (problem is,work often gets in the way)

    Currently my only bike with a motor is a 1972 Honda XL250,
    down about another month for repair.:cry
    But, when she's rolling again I like to ride all year around on
    Back roads(45-50 mph max) & trails.
    Going to start building a vintage road burner for the interstate/longer runs.
