    Ben were going to miss you, lol I could have used one of those nice rides with you that was fun a lot of even though it was a very short ride, thank Care!

    October 11, 2014

  • Ben

    Not looking like I'll be able to make it. Believe me, I wish I could. You guys ride safe, and have fun

    October 5, 2014

    • Ben

      Thanks for asking Chris. Slept maybe 5hrs total over the last 3days, so brain is kinda fuzzy.. but other then that I'm ok'ish. My bike is seriously under the weather though, with no idea what to fix. I can diagnose/fix most mechanical things, and the major electrical things.. but I get stuck on the small electrical issues. I know the Regular/Rectifier started seriously overcharging, to the point it partially melted the battery, killed the fuel pump relay (easy to find when they make obnoxious clicking noises) blew out both headlight bulbs, and I dunno what else. I'm guessing... A few relays, maybe sensors, and/or melted some of the wires. For the first time in my 50k mile relationship with it, I'm stuck.

      October 5, 2014

    • Chris J.

      Sorry to hear about both... your bike, and lack of sleep. Next year will be better!

      October 10, 2014

  • Steve T.

    Sorry all, I'm not going to make it tomorrow. :(
    Between working till 2, the wet conditions and my inexperience in riding in the wet, I've decided to skip this one. Please keep me up to date on future rides or if anyone just wants to cruise a little. I really want to get more miles.
    Thanks, ride safe everyone.

    Bah! Something came up and it conflicts with the ride. Hope I can make the next one! Ride safe!

    October 8, 2014

  • Enid M.

    I am ready to get back on the saddle, but please no dead ends or detours that require me to make left u-turns...yijes!

    October 8, 2014

  • Becky H.

    Yes we all better take advantage of this nice forecast!The trees are beautiful in the hocking hills right now. Brian if you should need someone else to lead Chuck said he will lead or sweep. See everyone Sat!

    October 8, 2014

  • Brian B

    Forecast says sunny and 61 for Saturday! Great day for a ride!

    2 · October 7, 2014

    • Chris J.

      This will probably be the last "lengthy" ride of the year. My wife and I are looking forward to Saturday.

      October 8, 2014

  • Dick

    Already committed to another event. Hopefully will be able to ride along next Spring.
    Safe riding all......

    October 6, 2014

  • Jim D.

    Might be interested. Last time I went on this one (two years ago) people were taking hairpin turns at 90 mph. One guy went off the road a almost wrecked in my group. Sorry, but not my bag. If it's slow and leisurely I might go. But if I'm trying to slalom through the turns I can't look at the view. Not into the Tail of the Dragon, just want to have little fun.

    October 5, 2014

    • Brian B

      Jim, I promise that I don't ride that way. I lead a group with safety and fun in mind. Not danger and injury...lol.

      October 5, 2014

    • Jim D.

      I figured as much, Brian, if you were going to lead.

      October 6, 2014

    Looking forward to it. Is there an estimated return time? Perhaps I overlooked it on the site.

    October 5, 2014

    • Brian B

      Kevin, I would expect to be done by 5'ish.

      October 5, 2014

    Looking forward to a nice relaxing ride :)

    Work weekend. But, I do have my cruiser running! I hope to join you for a ride, if not this season, then next. Will be great to see and ride with everyone again!

    October 5, 2014

  • Brian B

    With 34 on this ride we will probably ride in two groups. Any experienced lead & sweep that would like to help with group 2?

    September 27, 2014

  • Becky H.

    I live in Hocking county and the trees here are turning nicely. Jumbo's always a good place to eat! Should be a beautiful ride!

    September 24, 2014

  • Brian B

    Rode StRt 56 today and ate lunch at Jimbo's. The route is in good shape and looking forward to the ride.

    September 20, 2014

    • Ben

      Yesterday, I rode 56 from Athens-Circleville. Except for that little road construction, as always was a very scenic ride

      1 · September 21, 2014

    • Ben

      oh, and Jimbo's is a great place to eat. Service usually moves at an acceptable pace. Good food, reasonable prices, but a kinda crappy gravel parking lot that has been known to make some riders a little nervous.

      1 · September 21, 2014

  • Ben

    Are we there yet?

      August 23, 2014

  • Garry M.

    will we be stopping to have a photo op of the colors or just riding thru

    August 20, 2014

    • Brian B

      Garry, yes there should be a couple of photo ops as long as the colors are good!

      August 23, 2014
