  1. Random Thoughts thread

    I got one with a recent Aerostitch order.It's still sitting on my table unopened.I've been busy the last couple weeks.I might get to it after the end of the month.
  2. tires change

    Learn to do them yourself. https://www.nomartirechanger.com/Tire_Changers_s/37.htm Probably the best thing I've bought that is motorcycle related.The only thing that has paid for itself many times over. They will be at the AIME show September 23 and 24.They might have some deals for the show.I got mine at an IMS show and saved quite a bit.
  3. Random Thoughts thread

    I heard this last night at an eclipse meeting... When the Earth moves between the Sun and Moon you have a Lunar eclipse. When the Moon moves between the Earth and Sun you have a Solar eclipse. When the Sun moves between the Earth and Moon you have the Apocalypse.

    Rarely do I find anything of value on OR,but that link is definitely worthwhile reading.Thank you.
  5. Advice on SEO route

    If anyone has an interest in local history there is a very interesting cemetery at the perry/hocking county line on 595.Paynes Crossing was a community of freed slaves.Several of the men served in the Colored Troops in the Civil War.I often stop there on rides to take a water break and try to imagine the lives those men led.Truely adventurous souls!My 04 FJR also turned over 100,000 miles there. http://www.ohiohistorycentral.org/w/Paynes_Crossing,_Ohio
  6. Advice on SEO route

    Gilchrist's Convenience Store...not your typical convenience store.Nice selection of locally blown glass bowls and bongs.

    100k will get here sooner than you think.

    Yep,I really like my R-3 lite,but they are a little cumbersome if you're doing a ride with a lot of stops...long distance they are great!I I told you when you got that FJR that they have long legs...it looks like you're putting them to use.Congratulations on your IBA run.
  9. New Bike Research

    I would keep the street bike and get a small dual sport.BTW, I love your XSR...I think we share engines,I have the FJ 09.But anyway,I had a KLR and found out real quick that light weight is the way to go off road.I would never own a dual sport as heavy as a KLR again. I've done a lot of camping on a bike but it was all on an FJR out west so I really can't speak to camping on a light weight bike.

    Hey,that's my suit.
  11. Barber Museum

    But it would be fun to take one for a test ride.

    Since you're going to be in Birmingham you might want to go over to the Motus factory and take a test ride on a MSTR... http://www.motusmotorcycles.com/mobile/motus-index.html
  13. Starting my Blog soon. How honest to be?

    From your original post I take it that this is not just a motorcycle trip but an attempt to deal with a medical problem you have dealt with most of your life.If that is the reason for this trip you should be as honest and forthcoming as you can.Ride reports are a dime a dozen,but what you are doing could be important to others who are suffering from Cluster Headaches.You never know who's reading the ride reports on a forum as wide reaching as adventure riders....you could very well be helping/saving someone else's life while hopefully bettering your own. At the very least you will be leading a life uncommon.Best wishes finding what you are looking for.
  14. Best Road Closure Ever!

    147 from Centerville to Bellaire is a gem.Definitely in my top 10 in the state.145 in that are is pretty good too,but not as good as the Stafford-Lewisville section.9 is good from Armstrong Mills to St Clairsville.The area just north of the 147 split is probably the twistiest section. If you're hungry the Beallsville diner has good food.Have cash,I don't think they take cards.
  15. I'm out riding a long loop Sunday and I wanted to finish the ride by heading east on 147 from 9 over to Bellaire to slab back home.When I get to Centerville where 9 and 147 intersect there are road closed signs on 147.It said 14 miles until the closure point so I thought,what the hell I can ride most of it and either turn around or take some of the recently paved county roads around Key.The closure is on the flat area just out side of Bellaire!This means you will have all those great esses on the hill going out of Bellaire to yourself as long as the road remains closed.Since all the fracking traffic has picked up in that area I always feel lucky when I get a clean run up/down that section of 147,now it's almost a sure thing. Just a heads up to all the people that are heading down to 536 from the north.9 and 145 are also recently paved which will take you to 147 from 556 at Beallsville.The new pavement on 145 starts at the county line,about 2 miles out of town.
