Cincinnati Area

Hello,
I will be moving to the area in about six to eight weeks and was looking for anyone in the area that can point me to some local ride areas along with some local hangouts. As you can tell from the number of posts I'm new to the forum. I was riding an ST1300 for the last 60,000 miles and found I love this type of bike much more so I have a lot to learn about it and the capabilities of it.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Joe

P.S. I also ride an Aprilia Tuono if that gives any insight.

I am about 100 miles southwest of you in KY. There is a pretty good local group of ADV riders in S. OH....check out ADVrider forum.

I ride some in N. KY just southeast of you around Maysville. There is a neat circuit of about a dozen Covered bridges in the area.

Rabbit Hash (I think that's it) has a large group of weekend riders show up in a small town on the Ohio river southwest of you, but they are mostly evil cruiser types...

You'll have to try a 3-way at the Skyline when you hit town.....

Scott, thanks for the insight and I will hop over to ADV and peruse around.

Jokermtb, I'm a little afraid to ask what Skyline is when you mention a 3-way and your tag states what it does.

Yes - the Skyline is a local restaurant chain - famous for their unique take on chili. Basically spaghetti w/ chili and you add stuff in, to make a 3-way, 4-way, or a 5-way (loaded). It's not the most awesome thing ever, but it's definitely a Cinci thing.

Thanks everyone for your input on the area and the local food flare. I will look up Ferret and rideohio.org once I get settled in, in the coming months.

It's the most disgusting thing ever.

"How rare that we can point ourselves inevitably west and go, go, go. Run out the highway and the hills. Slide our fingertips over the creases and the valleys of the impossibility that is America. You canít grasp its vastness from a plane. Itís diversity from a map. You have to put your feet on the ground. Your hands in the dirt." - Zach Bowman

Highly subjective. I think you have to actually be FROM cinci to appreciate Skyline. If not, it must be kept within the OH lines. We had one open up a couple years ago and it shut down in about six months. BTW, Richmond, IN, is right on the state line on I-70.

Ha. My first post and it's off topic. Not a very good start, I'm afraid.
