    Posting rides these days?

    That is a long way for you to travel. We can also jump over into WV/PA at New Martinsville and do a loop and back into Ohio. I road east out of Proctor,WV on hwy. 89 Protctor Creek road last Sat. with the Wife and I can assure you that this would be fun at speed. Them 250 down to 7 west back to New Martinsville bridge is a thought.

    OMRL 2019 Season

    You all are having way to much FUN! King Kenny, started training with the mini's back in the day According to Superbikeplanet, the three-time world champion had owned the ranch for about 35 years. What began as a practice track for Kenny and his friends and family eventually grew to become the Kenny Roberts Training Ranch. It served as a hands-on classroom for eventual championship riders like Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey, Kenny Roberts Jr., Rich Oliver, and Jorge Lorenzo. Roberts was still active in training professional Gran Prix riders last year, and the track saw regular use by local riders. Roberts’ dirt track training methods would also take root in Europe, where he won the first of his three consecutive titles in 1978. The Spanish site of the KR Training Ranch was adjacent to the Circuit de Catalunya, just outside Barcelona. World class competitors like Sete Gibernau and Valentino Rossi would hone their skills as teenagers on the dirt track. Eventually the advent of electronic controls such as traction control in MotoGP racing would render Roberts’ training style obsolete, but he will always stand as a pioneer in the field. In a 1999 interview, 500cc World Champion Alex Criville credited The Ranch with improving his performance on the road racing circuits. “Riding the Rotax singles at the Roberts school helped me stay calm and comfortable when the bike was sliding and helped me get the Honda NSR500 turned earlier and the power down earlier,” he said. “I was racing Mick Doohan on the same bikes, and riding dirt track helped me get on his level in spite of coming from a 125cc and 250 background.”
  10. Had a great 160mile Sunday morning ride down here around Hocking. Got some shots of Vinny a new ADV-er on his KTM 1190 and I was on my V-Strom. 100_0256 by Vin Ride 2019_0009-0 by 100_0254 by Vin Ride 2019_0009-00-11-59-417 by Vin Ride 2019_0009-00-00-25-775 by
