Kind of surprised that the Buckeye contingent...

...hasn't planned one of those "meet (somewhere near Columbus) and shoot the twisty bits in the S.E." rides somewhere near the coming holiday weekend. Must have family plans, or maybe it's a conspiracy? :bom_alien::bom_alien:

Yup...family plans. Rode just shy of 2100 miles during my mototrip 2 weeks ago, so I am good for a while. Think I'll ride my DR650 for a while instead.

No conspiracy! Parents are coming in from Fla and my oldest is having his 18th b-d so my weekend is already spoken for. We should explore the idea of maybe heading UP to Amish country, "Haven't been there and they tell me it's nice"

Ride safe!

Over 2000 miles; yeah that'll do ya. Wasn't aware you'd been on a trip. No ride report? Anyway, I figured there had to be a reason or two. You guys seem to keep up on the group ride plans pretty well as the opportunities arise. Other thing is that BYOB's just a couple of weekends after and it's in the same area of the state. Regardless, I'll be in the Colos. area most of the next couple weeks (for work) and I anticipate having at least a day or two off during that time. Maybe if I know a few days ahead of time I'll post an invite in Events on the off chance someone wants to, and can, join in. Otherwise I'll go and behave wrecklessly on my own.

Can we really trust the Amish with their quaint hats and all those loaves of bread?

B keeps sayin that there are some decent roads around Holmes county so it may be worth a trip (besides, fresh bread is the BEST!)

Well, Monday looks like the weather is going to be awsome. My wife has to work. I think I am going to take off on the bike. If anybody is interested, post up and maybe we could hook up for a ride.

Some of us are riding to Dayton Saturday for a memorial service for an ADV'er killed in a crash in Florida.

"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 can’t grasp its vastness from a plane. It’s diversity from a map. You have to put your feet on the ground. Your hands in the dirt." - Zach Bowman

I'm out of town for a wedding this weekend.

Never met a dog I didn't like, a machine I couldn't break, or a woman I couldn't tick off.
