Indy Riders

It seems like a lot of you guys are from the Indy Area? I'm just curious as to how many of us fairingless riders are out there.

------ add to that all the riders that make their yearly pilgrimage to the Indy GP. It's only 6 hours from Grand Rapids, MI. Brown County is worth the drive.

Shauggy, you still coming down this way soon? Tipsaw is a good camping spot, if you're still planning that.

I was on 66 yesterday, it still has a bunch of dried river silt on it. Nothing real bad, just not knee draggin traction yet.

Fenn, where were you from?

Yeah man, I'm going to be riding south on Sunday 05/29/11 and camping... I was thinking of trying to find someplace overlooking the Ohio River.

There are some places in Harrison County such as this. You can not drive ride up to overlook but would be a short hike.

link: O'Bannon Woods State Park Information

One of my favorite rides is going west and following highway62-highway 66 to Rocky Point Indiana. This old highway has some great hills and curves to thrash around on. Be wary right after passing Rome as there is a corner called Gypsies curve and has taken a few cyclists lives.

Regards,
Fennsta

Buell Rider here. I just got another Bike last month, so I'm really looking to put some miles on it. Most weekends are free, and most days during the week in the evenings. I've riden with a couple of guys from Indy to Bike nights, but no serious business yet. I'm really wanting to hit Brown Co. again.

Any chance I met you at euro bike night in Carmel a few weeks ago?

Yes, that was me. I've been back up there a couple of times, but haven't seen any of the you guys there. I still have not done any real rides, and I'm wanting to make that happen. Drop me a line when you guys ride again.

Possibly! Or maybe not... Hard to say really but you can always cut out a bit early if need be.

As far as I know, it's still on. I plan to be there, and I'm going to try to bring a rider or two with me.

Just wanted to remind everyone that this Saturday is our ride. We will be leaving the McDonalds at the Greenwood exit (Exit 99) at 10 AM sharp!!!
Our route will be the following:

South 65 to exit 90
East on SR44 to SR135
SR135 south to SR 58
SR 58 east to Cafe 58 in Kurtz, IN (Lunch stop)
Continue on SR 58 to SR 446
SR446 North to Bloomington (ice cream at corner of 446 and 46)
Some will go home via 45N to SR135
I think I will continue west on 46 to Spencer then head north on some good backroads I know.

It is a Indy RAT pack sport ride (Triumph owners) but we are inviting friends. Still only about 15 people confirmed which means maybe 10 will show.
