Too weird. I was in Ohio last Sunday picking up a turtledeck for my '26 roadster. When the guy found out I was into bikes he said "Hey, I've got a buddy with a car lot you need to check out. He's got a bunch of bikes you'd like". Yeah, ok... usually when non-bike guys tell you about a place with bikes it turns out to be pretty much nothing. But I politely nodded and said I'd see how things went. "No, really, it's not even five minutes out of your way. When the road jogs left and then right again, go straight instead".

So I'm into Kenton, the road jogs left, then I'm at a red light and see the sign for the place. It's a Sunday so they aren't open but I figure what the heck, I'll stop and look. Walking through the lot I'm still expecting a bunch of run of the mill stuff. Then the first bike I recognize through the window is a VR1000. WTF? Alrighty then, maybe not so run of the mill after all. And from what I heard that's not the guy's only building with bikes either.

Ohio DOES seem to have a lot of cool stuff. I bought my Ducati singles there. I bought my '26/31 Model T&A there. I found a turtledeck there. Now this. What is it about Ohio???

I always figured everyone was so depressed about the fact that they lived in Ohio, that they bought motorcycles to make themselves happier.

You could be right.  OR it could be the strange assortment of people we have here.  Ohio people seem to be the broadest range and mixture of everybody from the posh posh (at least they think they are posh posh) to flatlander hill-jacks who proudly fly their rebel flags... and when you talk with them you discover that they were born and raised in Ohio (or father north) and have never even been in the South or out of the state!  Interesting place.  Lots of good motorcycling weather three seasons of the year but only a few really decent motorcycling roads.

Only about 1.5 hrs from me. I've got family in Lima too so I'll have to check it out next time I visit. Thanks for the heads up!
