Saturday 10/14 ride. Solid ride, in case it’s the last this year

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Planning a ride for Saturday 10/14. Weather looks to be almost perfect: 80 and partly cloudy. With it being late in the season, I’m planning to really get a good ride in....in case it’s the last. Hopefully the warmth holds out for another month...but it may not.

Route will be flexible. But I’m hoping to get to the roads up and down the river near Marietta. As we figure out who’s coming along, I’ll make a meet time and place. But I’m thinking we’ll meet as a group around 10-10:30.

Anyway....post up and let’s get one last good one in.

Hell yeah. Need to be back in Baltimore  (near buckeye lake) around 2:30.  I can get in a little ride and 90% pace.  That start time is good for me.

I was expecting to see a ride pop up, wish I was free to join up and see some of you guys before season closes. Ride safe team. Hope every one jumps in on this and enjoy the blessing of warm October.

Well damn...  it should’ve been there by now. The tags are good for 45 days though. Everyone calls them 30 day tags, but they extended their validity....   for what it’s worth.

I'm planning to ride Saturday. I might be able to meet up with you guys. Once the route is determined and we get closer to  Saturday I'll be able to confirm.

I will be out riding in SEO Saturday. Still trying to juggle 3 different groups of people wanting to ride.

100cc? Sounds more like a pony....  maybe a dog.

Alright guys, I'll start nailing down some plans. I'll keep them tentative on participants, but at least we have a starting point to discuss.

Let's meet at the gas station in New Concord at 10:15. Kickstands at 10:30. Looks to be unseasonably warm (63) for mid-October, so the morning ride shouldn't be miserable.

Fuel Mart

201 W Main St, New Concord, OH 43762

The ride pace will be brisk, though not stupid. Participants should have some backroad twistys experience. As always, we will wait for stragglers at all route changing intersections. Please be ATGATT. Route to be determined, but challenging.

All that looks good to me.  I'll be there,  don't know how long I can be out, but it'll be a great ride.  I'll try to get the Triumph back to street legality for this, otherwise I'll happily sweep with Izzy.  Hope to meet some of you newer guys.

Really wanted to attend but I'm programming a prison right now and the guy who was supposed to commission and checkout decided his wife wanted to have a baby this morning which leaves me scrambling to finish it up this weekend so unfortunately I am out.   

First weekend working in a long time so I really can't complain too much, I've been lucky.

Yeah, looking for one already set up for OMRL/pavement but willing to look at dirt setup if the price is low enough that I don't go over my budget buying the street conversion parts.

From one large man to another, I am really looking forward to seeing you on a xr100 in full lizard suit on the track. Can you say "Backmarker" :lol:

It's all about maintaining that corner speed!  No cheating here with a 200hp traction and wheelie control having beast.
