Okay, not everyone works Monday thru Friday. That leaves some prime riding time during the week open for exploitation! I'm looking for mostly Central Ohio people who'd like to get out during the week for some day rides or planned overnight camping rides like the dragon, the UP, and Pennsylvania or WV.
Give me some names and contact info and we'll see if we can't improve your days off a bit.:D

I'm always up for a mid-week ride...but due to my schedule, I wouldn't be able to commit until last minute.

I'm planning to take the GF for a ride on Sunday...leaving early morning...riding some of my "new found" roads I've been shown.

Anybody else interested???

I have a vacation day scheduled next Tues the 23rd. I can possibly do a day ride leaving around 9am, or after 4pm. Anyone going to the vintage show? I believe that is Sat.

I'm off wednesdays and thursdays, but this coming wed/thurs I'm pretty booked. Other than that I'm in. Oh, and I get off early on Tuesdays and don't go back until late Fridays, so that helps too.

Hey Big B!
I'm going to try, but after not being home for six weeks it might not happen.

I'm hoping he has it the first weekend in October, then I'm there.

Looking forward to Sunday, talk at you then.

I'm going to be a last minute commiter too next week. Gotta keep time olen to learn some mech stuff on the KLR. I rode the V-Strom today helping mark the COCR ride stuff. Big boy did well and other than one section where I went down in a puddle the "V" impressed me. Lucky I had the Givi's on so there were no scratches. :)

I have a flexible schedule just let me know with a weeks notice and I should be able to make a day ride. I'll be at the vintage bike show this weekend. We are camping Mohican State Forest.

Wednesdays are usually good for me. What do you have in mind? A local tour 100 mi or so with stops or a butt crusher, 200+ with stops for gas and pee? :)
I'd like to take the "V" down around Tar Hollow and see how it does in the park. Then play around McCarthur (sp?) and Lancaster area. Or for a gentle ride West Liberty and Urbana have shown some promise for paved and gravel sections.

It doesn't matter to me really. I ended up doing 635 total miles the last one we did. I'll do it again :D

How's this. Wednesday the 1st I'll see if Mark, he and Merideth were on the KLR's, can do a tour around Mnt Vernon and areas East of there towards Coshocton. Mohawk dam area has a lot of ups and downs with turns. If he can't go at least I can get a GPS map. I'll see if he can get a good place to meet also.

Mark replied:
Yep, sure would. I gotta tell you, though, I'm Johnny Speedlimit lately, so if you guys want to really rip I'm not your man. Plus the KLR is burning oil, more speed = more oil! 65-ish is good for me...

I'll plot a route. Maybe we can meet in Danville, or even at my house if you want.


Your thoughts?:)

Well, while I have been riding it hasn't been so much on the V but on the KLR. I am looking forward to some late winter/spring riding as weather allows. I guess now is the time of year to get all those maintance items caught up on. :)
