Southern Indiana get away...

I have 160 acres in Southern Indiana (Brownstown) and in the heart of GREAT riding country. Would like to set up a weekend ride/camping deal if anyone is interested.

Wingspan My rear sprocket finally got sorted out, so I got to ride today!!!! Felt great, this winter was way too long. Commuting duty begins again tomorrow.

I am going to talk with my buddy Glen, "you remember big ole Goldwing Glen"? Going to see if he wants to host a rally at his place, has 6 acres and a fully decked out HUGE barn. He lives right in the heart of some of OHIO's best riding.

Now, next year, Continental Divide Ride...

Oh, and I have to aquire a DR-Z400S or an older KLR650 and start prepping it for the CDR.

Don't rule out a DR650...........

Absolutely! I'd thought about asking to ride with you guys before, but it sounds like you do a lot of dirt stuff. Not that I'm opposed to that, but I have zero experience off road and wouldn't want to hold you up.

I'm still waiting to get my bike out. All my work is done, but I'm stuck waiting for a rear sprocket. The Pitbull sprocket I was sent didn't fit and they're sending another.

One of my goals for this year is to do some motorcycle based camping. I used to camp a lot when I was younger (Boy Scouts), but it's been a rare event since then. I'd also like to explore some non-paved roads. Got to take that in easy steps though, I have zero non-pavement experience.

My bike is currently torn apart for the 15k service and stiffer springs.

indybob As always, hope to do a good deal of riding in southern Indiana. I am also planning on a trip to West Virginia probably in July. Otherwise, playing it by ear.

Good to hear what everyone has been doing. Maybe we can again meet up for dinner a few times this coming riding season.

wendortb The wife and I are planning on doing a bunch of day & weekend trips this summer in all directions.
Probably visit my friends and family up in the northwest corner of Ohio. Ride over to the Iron Pony. Explore more of the roads south of Bloomington(the fun curvy ones). Mostly just explore the roads in Indiana and see what our favorites are.

We are planning to take an extended weekend for our vacation and just ride the entire time. Not sure where we are going yet, but I can't wait to just get out there an ride and not have to worry about anything else.

Jessica sold her 2004 Sportster that she had and we are getting her a 2009 Road King. Should be a lot more comfortable for her and make for longer rides for us. She is excited about the new bike and the possibility of less vibrations.

I put 8K miles on my bike last year and my wife put 7K on her sportster. Hopefully we can put a lot more than that on this year.
