Recommended book for all Ohio Troopers!

My kids bought me this book for Christmas:


Motorcycling Across Ohio: A Guide
by William Murphy

I quickly skimmed through the book, and it looks awesome. Most of the routes can easily be done in one day, sticking to lightly-travelled backroads, with interesting and historical sites to see along the way.

I am looking forward to completing all the routes in the book and hope to see some of you along the way.

Ya'll be careful, now... I used to live in Ohio, and they have the most "enthusiastic" Highway Patrol of any other state I've ridden in, and that's 49 of 'em altogether!

You aint jokin!!!!! However a good buddy of mine is a State Trooper, he said to "always" be courteous and admit you were wrong. Lots of State boyz ride motorcycles....as long as you were not being a complete idiot, they might let you go with a warning.

You won't see an out of shape State Patrol officer in this state, at least I never have.
