Talking OHIO V-Strom Check in

I have been seeing more and more people from Ohio joining the site. I'd like to know how many would be interested in an Ohio ride come spring. Maybe if there is enough interest, we could get an Ohio club together and do monthly rides. I am definitely in. :mrgreen:

So how buried are you guys? I've got at least 16-18 inches of the white stuff up here. My poor Strom hasn't seen the light of day since the day I brought it home from the dealership.

My first ride once it's warm enough will be right back to the dealership to get the updated ECM. Then I'll be good to go.

Anyone have any thoughts where we should go riding? I'm up for anything, I just want to get some miles on my new toy!

In Urbana, we probably finally ended up with about 8-9 inches total. Much like you, I brought mine home from the dealership, rode an insanely cold 4.6 mile ride, and then its been nasty ever since. It has given me the opportun ity to do a bit of farkling though. Since bringing it home, I've put on:
1. Set of Givi E21's
2. Adventure motostuff trunk rack (I'm using some old no-name topcase I already had)
3. Handguards
4. Centerstand
5. Heated Grips
6. Dan Vesel Skid plate, oil cooler guard, and radiator guard.
Planning to order a Kaoko throttle lock and probably some givi crash bars next...

As far as where to ride, I guess it depends on whether everyone wants to do a pavement day or a dual sport day. This is my first dual sport-ish bike, so I don't know a lot of places to go for that. If everyone is up for a pavement day, there is a lot of good stuff in SE Ohio. One that poolbitc--.....I mean poolBOY and I do frequently is 555, which basically runs from Zanesville to Parkersburg, WV. There a lot of other good stuff around there too...

I guess aybe we need to see where all the Ohio folks are on the map and try to figure out a somewhat centralized meeting point. I'll try to look at a map and locate where everyone is later today if I get the chance....

Sounds great. I need to get some more farkles going myself, but I've just had a hard time justifying the expense with the bad weather and all. I'm about 25 miles south of Cleveland, just north of Medina off 71. Handyhiker's not far from me either. I'm game for anything, I've also never owned a dual-sport-ish bike of any kind before so I'm a noob to that type of riding as well.
