    Riding tomorrow, leaving West Harrison , IN (20 min outside Cincy) 9:30, route unknown. Maybe find a covered bridge or two, a mix of gravel roads and pavement, maybe a creek crossing or three. A thumper is the preferred ride. Get drunk tonite, kiss a girl at midnight, asleep by 12:05 (or 12:30, depending on how good to go said girl is :evil ) and you'll be ready to go in the mornin. PM me if yer interested.

    Weather shows rain in the late afternoon:

    I was debating some muddy off-road riding in Southern IN on Sun., but what a mess that will be.

    This sounds better to me !! Do you have a meeting waypoint with a possible staging area for trucks / trailers? (sorry... coming from INDY)

    Are you still snowed in? We really don't have a place for a truck/trailer at our meeting point, but I will be out near Sunman and you can meet me somewhere and ride down to the shop that morning.

    Our saturday rides usually start at noon and go 100 or so miles as most guys have families to attend to. I will be riding til about 2 on this one. This ride will most likely be longer and very loosely organized, as we will be exploring some different areas.

    Do you have the whole weekend to play? Some offroad riding down here sounds like a blast.

    Truly one of the best times on a bike I've had. As a guy whose been stuck in the street/sport riding rut- what an eye opener. No more waiting for perfect weather. Let's do it again! Good Mexican Food doesn't hurt either.

    Actually, that was one of the (2) guys on the DR 650's. I think motorjon noticed the Blue / White Suzuki parade all ridden by riders clad in Red / Black... :rofl
