Aug 1st Ohio ride near Mnt Vernon

Mark is posting up a thread in ADV rider for a Aug 1st ride

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=250588

Luke and his cronies on his new favorite website, stromtroopers.org or whatever it is, are wanting a mid-week road ride. This one's gonna be in my hood.

Monday, August 1, 2007.

Meeting point #1, at 9:30 am; my house.

158 E. North St.
Mt. Gilead, OH
(1 block north of Ohio 95)

From there we'll motor to Danville, to meeting point #2 at 10:45

BP station
(SW corner of Ohio 205 and US 62, at the four way stop)

Then it'll be a nice mix of riding, spanning US 62, Ohio routes 715, 60, 83, 541, 514, 520, et. al. Lots of good curves, nice pavement, and mid-week the area should be pretty much traffic free. There might be a bit of gravel, but nothing you can't run a 'Wing down.

Lunch at Peggy Sue's in New Castle.

Total mileage should be about 175 miles.

Interested parties, post up. Luke is cross-posting this onto stromtroopers also.


So there it is. Who's in???

Strom is gone but well remembered. May the Tenere do as well as it did.

I'll mark it on my calander, but won't be able to fully commit until a couple days before due to my "lack of work schedule".

All the cool people will be there! LOL Hope to see a bunch of mid week riders show. That last ride really showed an interest from this site in these types of tours.

I'm there boys and girls. And Mt. Gilead is only a mere 85 miles from my crib, so this will be easy.

I'm in...as long as I'm not working.
A couple days before the ride I should be able to tell.

Well, how did the ride go? I was real close to making the 190 mi ride over there until the weather man said HOT!

It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow.
