Meet just before 7:00 am on Saturday the 18th at Chestnut and North High Street in downtown Columbus. Motorcyclists park and create a "Thunder Tunnel" and then can rev their engines, honk, cheer and applaud when the participants for this years race go by. The race starts at 8:00 am and should be done by 10:30. Columbus Police will start closing downtown streets beginning at 7...
As a first time participant in 2012 it is an awesome and moving experience and everyone there really enjoys the show of support (and noise!) from us motorcyclists!
There is also a group that will ride from AD Farrows at 6:15 am and be escorted to Chestnut and High to park and set up - so if you want to start from there you can.

UPDATE: I cannot attend due to travel out of Ohio, so I'll need a few CMR attendees to contact me so we can have a section along N High Street set aside for us!
