I am a devoted aficionado of the southern Indiana twisties, and I can be found riding in your area quite regularly.

Look for my V-Strom (above)

We shall meet up this summer and blast down some hoosier national roads, I went out for a ride today, I took the GPS just incase I found myself in some serious banjo playing areas and couldnt find a way home I have done that a few times in a car, you go from paved road to gravel road to dirt gravel then to complete 4x4 off roading that only big mudding trucks can get through.

I didnt need it, I found my way home 100 miles/3 hours later.

Yeah, I'm trying to get ahead a bit at work so I can also take a "ditch day" on Friday.

Bump for more southern indiana riders!

I took me a ride out past Story, IN and found me some gravel roads that turned in to dirt, So much fun! My baby is filthy now!





Nebo Ridge Trail, I stopped to stretch my legs after going down some gravel roads


Dead End, Had to turn back and start the fun all over again

A nice little lunch run for me is hitting 135 thru Story then over to Kurtz to the 58 Cafe. In fact I'll probably head that way on Friday. I always think about stopping by the Story Inn for lunch but then I always seem to get distracted by all those sweet curves. About the only curves we have in Carmel are the rounabouts.

I want to meet a indiana stromer that knows his or hers way around a strom mechnically, I want to do most my work.

I still got to buy a service manual but even service manuals can be confusing.

I live in Indy, but I've always done all my own work. I'm used to vintage bikes, so the V-Strom seems easy as pie to work on. Hell, you can actually buy parts for the thing. It's amazing...


Speaking of vintage bikes, here are the maps I put together for the annual Suzuki GS Brown County rally last year. Lots of interesting roads here, and these maps don't even contain some of the really fun back roads, gravel roads, water crossings, etc.:
