I haven't been around for awhile. I've had many lives since I started thread back in 2008. I still get email alerts when someone posts to this thread. I think it's amazing that this thread is still alive! Keep posting bros!!

What's up my Ohio Brethren!
While I may be stuck down in the sunny land of straight, flat, & boring roads, I still dearly miss the riding of N.E. Ohio! Raised in Cleveland, educated in C-Bus, living down in Tampa area now, but still I suffer from withdrawal of those Eastern Ohio & Western PA rides. To anyone in the Cleveland area, check out Chagrin River Road; from D-Town Chagrin Falls up to Willoughby Hills. You can even head east from Willoughby Hills and ride some hidden jewels in Kirtland Hills & the outskirts of Chardon. It's two-wheel nirvana!
And to you Central Ohio riders, I will be forever jealous of your proximity to the roads out there by New Philadelphia, Cambridge, Coshocton, Zanesville, etc. Some of the best riding I have ever experienced!
Well if anyone's ever in the St. Pete/Clearwater area, swing by DCC and ask for "Slacker". I'll make sure you get the VIP tour!

Hello!  I guess the riding is pretty good in much of Ohio at the moment; it is February and in the 60s up there!  I live in north central, not too far from Mid-Ohio, but am wintering on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  It's hard to handle this sun and beautiful weather, but somebody has to take the hit for the rest of mankind...   ;)

yep, 65 degrees today. Tried to start the Suzuki though and it wasn't having it. I Think ohio bikes may go on strike from October to may.

We always enjoyed riding over by way of Mohican area. Ive been up in the Willoughby area in a car, but never on a bike.

And to you Central Ohio riders, I will be forever jealous of your proximity to the roads out there by New Philadelphia, Cambridge, Coshocton, Zanesville, etc. Some of the best riding I have ever experienced!

Great roads in that area for sure!  I drive out there for work 1 week every month, and have done lots of scouting to spot roads I want to check out on my bike... it has paid off.  Two roads over there I would place in a top 15 or 20 best in Ohio category, but the rest is good fun as well.  If anyone ever wants some good route pointers, by all means hit me up. I am happy to share some insider info on good roads, whats got new pavement, etc. Or even come out and ride with you. I have a problem of too many friends with motorcycles that can't ever manage to meet up for good riding out in the hills!

Also, apparently you never rode anything near (south both directions and northeast a bit) where this new member lives, or anything in southeastern Ohio or near Gallipolis, OH...




New member.  Woodsfield, Ohio.  CB350.

YOU...!!! Are VERY lucky indeed! At least for your geographic location and all of the amazing riding roads you have south of you both directions and to the northeast up 26... wow.  All I can say is...Get some really good sticky tires on that thing, Avon AM26 at minimum, Bridgestone Battlax BT45 or BT39/BT39SS, and upgrade your shocks and brakes and fork springs... and lean lean lean!  Not a straight stretch of road anywhere south of you hardly... Woodsfield is the only gas stop in that entire region, which is chocked full of world class riding roads. 

From Columbus, I love taking a route down to Nelsonville  and catching "The Rim of the World" (as locals call it) OH-78 Scenic ByWay from Glouster for 11+ mies of totally epic ridgetop nonstop curves and a few amazing 400' high ridgetop vistas nearing Route 555 when the trees start to subside enough for a view. new pavement on 78 at the end of 2015. Great road overall, best is Glouster to 555 or 377. I usually take 377 south and a convoluted back way on 266 to 792 to 676 to Watertown or Waterford Rd (I forget, they cross paths, one is not the right one) to Lowell Hill Rd to Lowell OH to 530 which is amazing and dumps you out into the desolate rider's playground that is roughly south of 78, mostly east of interstate 77, and down to the Ohio River.... best roads in the state, world class top notch riding. My PA buddies were raving about OH-26 that they picked for a direct route from Pitt to Red River Gorge. Thats a great road through the area, but I don't even go out of my way to hit it when all the way down there as there are just too many amazing roads to choose from there to hit them all...

Anyone who loves twisty scenic rides at a brisk pace on sporty vintage bikes, feel free to hit me up any time. I'm in central Columbus.
Also, very much into enduro riding recenty, if anyone needs a buddy to ride Wayne National Forest trails with, or any other area. My brother loaned me his CR125 and I was hooked. I let him ride it mid summer 2016 and got my own trail bike, and we rode every other weekend at Wayne... amazing trails.
