Man...I would love to go to that! I will be up in Lake Erie fishing that day. You guys need to seriously fill me in, maybe we could even use some of those routes on the 5th.:mrgreen: There truly is some nice riding in this state, shame that many don't venture out much past where they live.

Thumbs up

I thought the presentation was well worth the time. Came away with a long list of ideas for future rides. It was good to see a couple of other stromtroopers in attendance (handyhiker and lonerider). We were disappointed that MZBuckeye didn't make it...looking forward to hearing those Holeshot pipes!

I marked the presenter's top 5 "technical" rides in Ohio on Google Maps:
