    Date yet to be determined but a friend and I are working on getting some road riders together for a route we put together from West Jefferson to 78 and 555 and back. We had a chance to ride some of it before our friend on her HD sportster got to tired. There is some great road and we are excited to do the whole route! He's a local boy to the area and knows the back roads too. If we could find him a dual sport he'd be a great addition to the forum for Wayne National info!:1drink
    I've got a short video from 595 where we took off to play a bit before we stoped to watch a deer take off from the side of the road. Not high quality video but it might wet some whistles:evil

    So post up if you'd be interested.:ear I know there are some folks who have been looking for a chance to meet some other people in here so this would be a great way to make new riding buddies.:freaky We'll be moving at a good pace so no slow pokes!:deal :lol3

    No slow pokes, hmmm, I'm slow, but I think I can outrun you on the street :rofl

    All kidding aside, I'm might be in for a little road ride, maybe I even bring my wife on her clean F650GS along.

    It all depends on timing.

    Scott and I were thinking of starting in Circleville early with a later meeting point in Nelsonville. That way people from the East arn't riding west, then east, then west and East back home!:lol3 The top thought is a mid week ride so there will be less traffic because of the Fourth of July. I like the idea of a Wednesday ride even if I'm not laid off by then simply because it breaks up the week.:evil

    Lorazepam, sound like fun and appreciate the invite but I imagine I'll be knee deep in a Tar Hollow mud hole.:D Gotta enjoy the trails while there open and in great condition.

    Knobies, your teddy bear? I don't care if you bring studs, your pet gerbil. :lol3 As long as you can go over 70mph and enjoy a lot of twists all are welcome. From what we rode I was actually thinking how much fun the KLR would be in some of those areas. I think any dual sport over 500cc will be just fine.:D
