I just wanted to start a new thread to get going on another ride in the near future. I have talked to Sbeau and JBLee about doing a more relaxed ride than we did on May 17th. I really enjoyed picking up the pace but I want to include our cruiser riding buddies as well.
I am sure we can/will get a more spirited get together going soon too.
This is just the start of the thread. Please toss out some ideas and lets get another ride going. Memorial day weekend is the only busy weekend I have for a while so anything after that is good.
We're both up for more group rides. A more relaxed one would be fun as well, certainly a blast to hustle it through the twisties, but taking your time and enjoying the scenery has its merits.
I did a nice 3 hour ride today checking out the '04 FJR, headed down 37 south from Indy, took Old SR37 just south of Martinsville down past the state forest to the edge of Bloomington. Took 46 through Bloomington and caught 45 East, outstanding road that goes over to Bean Blossom on 135. Took 135 north to Morgantown and then 252 west back to Martinsville. Totaled 140 miles, highly recommend the route for anyone from Indy wanting a short ride full of great roads.
We enjoy Northeast Indiana with the lake roads and such. Two vintage events for anyone interested. Sat June 6th - Hayden Honda in Kendallville is having a vintage show from 10 until 2. First year for the show. Nice dealership. 2.5 hours N. of Indy.
Also June 14th (Sunday) 100 miles North of Kendallville - between Battle Creek and Kalamazoo MI is The Gilmore Museum vintage show. Great venue. We leave from Hayden's on Sunday morning at 8 sharp. Nice group ride up. good show...
The vintage show of the year is at mid-Ohio (Lexington OH) July 24th. Vintage races - demo rides - it is all there.... that would be a good group ride with an overnight possible. If you like old bikes of ANY manufacture they will be there... New bikes like Ducati and Triumph as well as Harley and Kaws. are usually there to demo. Honda is typically at homecoming that weekend but I don't know what the status of that is with the Marysville OH plant switching from wings to cars.
