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)

My GS850:



Or my VX800:



Coming soon to a twisty road near you! :hurray:

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. :yikes:

Hmm.. better get off the internet and back at it... :furious:

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! :green_lol:





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 :hurray:

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.:

Hey Brian,

Indybob has told(warned:thumbup:) me about you hardcore GS guys. In fact I'm planning on the Brown County ride and hopefully the Kentucky ride in July. I look forward to meeting you and and hopefully you get a chance to get out and play Friday. I tried to get Bob out but he has to work.:thumbdown:

Ride safe,
Kevin

I am located in Columbus.
I'm also located in Columbus, North Washington St. We may have met the other day at the CEP parking lot.

I've had my Wee pretty well opened up through the winter (other than internal engine work) for installation of the various accessories. I also have the Service Manual.

PM me if you want to meet, talk and kick tires.

Ride safe.

It was a pleasure meeting you, I am sorry I didnt have time to chat very long when we met up that day.


I shall take you up on your offer here soon, I would love to be shown the proper way to tighten chain and other various things.

Picking up my Strom on Tuesday. Many nice twisty scenic 2 lane roads between here and Bloomington. I'm SE of Terre Haute and West Of Bloomington. Ride to Madison, cross over into KY or follow the scenic river route back to Indy via Lawrenceburg.

count me in. Almost. Just got the wee and have to put tires on it and change the oil. I'll subscibe to this thread. If anyone is energetic we could all of us send one person an email and they could email us all on one reply and we'd have a mailing list that way.

I used to do that with jetski buds...send out a note thursday that i'm riding sat at 2. Eventually we had each others ph numbers and would just text it out.


almost forgot...jonnail told me about this
