    -The GS poser bike gets most daily commuting duties, weekend around OH-KY-IN rides and all trips.
    -DR gets the enduros/dual-sport rides that it's way too big for and some around town screwing around along with a few trips to Natural Bridge and Harlan County with my Jeep/off-road friends.

    most of my riding is done around here, i like to spend time out on the east side of the state when i get time, but i usually end up hitting 10/22 in Kentucky or heading to Indiana. Trying to plan out a spring break trip right now.

    daily rider is an 86 V65 Magna that I've put many a mile (nearing 50k) exploring the purple part of the state. I've been north as far as Toledo/Sandusky and south as far as Tenn/NC.

    Just recently picked up an 02 XR250R that I cant wait to get dirty on...gonna go tomorrow and transfer the title and register it so I can ride in Wayne, etc.

    haven't met up with any inmates yet, but I reckon its on the agenda for this summer...whens that Hatfield/McCoy thing?

    Got a 72 cb350 torn apart in my garage currently, and in the next couple weeks ill be the owner of probably a ninja 250 unless a drz400 or wr250r/x turns up. Id like to get out and ride w/ some of the locals as I don't know much of the area - I downgraded from living in the upper peninsula to moving here two months ago. Damn job, who needs it, right?

    So if you ever make it to the not so great plains area, possibly look me up. Ill look out of place in my flannel.

    Officially it's June 16-18th but we're going to do a recon ride before then, so watch the ADV in Ohio thread for that.

    Some of us ride Perry a lot during the season too, and Wayne, I usually post up when I'm headed that way....be glad to meet ya!

    That is a great bike, keep the oil clean and it will last forever. If you are tall, send me a pm and I'll give you some tips on getting it set up for you. I raced on for 3 seasons, loved it

    I'm 6'2" - I mounted a new upper triple clamp to move the bars forward and used CR Hi bend bars along with a 1" taller seat, worked so much better for me

    You nailed that concussion diagnosis on our pin eyed friend, but we both blundered Sean's broken bone in TN with our "It's not broke, or it would be poking out" conclusion. :wink:

    We are fortunate that our fangs drip tiger blood! :D

    I am located in Eastern Cuyahoga County, I ride a`92 Yamaha TDM 850 beast and I like to ride the lumpy bumpy mixed gravel asphault roads that keep the speeds down and make you sit up and pay attention. Since I abhor the slab I typically ride 14 and 183 down to Carrollton or 93 down to Beach City to satisfy my curvy road exploring needs. Dirt is fun but no mud for me as the TDM is mostly a street bike with no availabilty of knobbies for the front wheel and not much in the way of ground clearance. Though I love getting together with other like minded riders to shoot the shit I prefer to ride with one or two others to keep the cornfusion to a minimum. :deal

    Howdy All -

    First post..

    Live in Downtown Columbus
    Stable: '99 Tiger 885i, '05 CRF250X plated

    Primary riding is sport/adv touring and lightweight dual sport riding. Ride most of the nearby National Dual Sport rides and ADV rides with my wife and my dad on his Strom 1k.

    I'm sure you'll see me on local ADV rides this year, hard to miss that black Tiger, you don't see too many of them.
