Is this ride still happening? I don’t want to leave at 6AM tomorrow and find nobody at the DQ. I rode the bike to work today and everything seems to be good. 

Yes.

Home. 320 miles. New tires are grippy. 

Quote of the day...

"I view laws as suggestions, but you don't believe in laws at all." 

Nice riding with you guys. Nivin, you blew it. We were in Hundred by 10:30, zoomed across WV-7 and heading up OH-556 by noon... and we rested in Hundred for thirty minutes. 

I missed a collision by minutes on 151, just south of 212. I don't know what happened but a cruiser was under a SUV and the bike operator was on the ground wrapped in blankets. First responders were already on the scene and directing traffic around the carnage. I hope he is ok, but it did not look good.

Home 470 miles. Thanks for reminding me Pauly that Ohio 250 is still a fun road to ride. I had a blast following you.  I saw no wreckage but I did get damp near home. Glad you made it home safe. Nivin and Rick it was great to see you and ride with you again.

Dayum should have sticked with you guys. Are you sure Only 320 for you guys?? I was thinking you guys prolly would have gone till afternoon seeing that we dipped into WV. I would definitely have completed the loop if I knew 3ish return time.  Heck I did 260 exploring around long  way back.  

But all in all, I am happy I got to get out today. And thx again Pauly for posting this up. Esp at earlier time which forced me to start early after a loooong time, missed catching the sun rises while on motorcycle. Today was perfect day. Nice to see durk again. Skinny we gonna ride at least once again before winter I am sure.

I am always apprehensive about posting rides, but the last two have gone really well. I hope to see that trend continue and this forum start building momentum. To answer your mileage question... we just got down to the business of hauling ass. I passed more vehicles today than I probably have in one day around these parts...most of which happened leaned over in a corner. The Hyper is agile and fast, which lends itself to making space where space normally doesn't exist. I started to get greedy towards the end of my ride and, after a pass that I should have waited for, I decided to dial it back a click before I got into trouble. I knew I blew it as I started to roll on the throttle, but it was too late to change my mind and I gave it everything to slip back into my lane. It was a dumb mistake that I was fortunate enough to forgive myself for and carry on. 

I had zero expectations for today. I just wanted to get out and enjoy the opportunity to ride. I had not intended on moving as fast as we were, but everything felt right and you guys didn't seem to mind the pace. I got to know this bike pretty well on my WV trip with @Tpoppa and @Blitz. I am just running on the same mojo I found that weekend. I know all three of you can ride faster than I can. I appreciate you allowing me to take point and just route on the fly. I wish you had stayed with us, Nivin..but I understand why you were anxious. 

It was the first ride for me with @durk and I sure hope it wasn't the last. I had a great time with you guys and we should do it again before it gets too cold. Nice to know we can hit WV and back in a matter of hours. 

@Skinny guy, always a pleasure to hang out with you. I will catch you all another time.

Haha the passes were crazy lol total hooliganism. I was literally expecting cops at the end of 250 waiting for us with hand cuffs 🤣

To be honest there is no other way to do 250 I think without those passes. The group size and experience was perfect for this ride and pace. Hopefully one more of these before winter hits us. 

reminded me of old Mach retard rides. Paul and Jinu used to do this, pass and jinu like a shadow right behind. Same thing you and durk were doing today. At first I could see from behind skinny gear in head working like “should I ... should I not “ after few secs, ..... wild side switched on 😆

If you aren't willing to pass in corners on 250, then you just aren't going to get anywhere. The entire road is a corner. 

That said, all of my passes were well within the reasonable limits of illegal passing...if that even comes close to sounding sane. The last one was bad, but it wasn't terrible. I was more ashamed of scaring the drivers than I was afraid for my safety. I got excited and made a bad call. I corrected my behavior and went back to appropriately passing like an adult should. 

The only real OSM was on WV-7. We were getting down and I rounded a right hand bend that straightened just as a tractor/trailer was being escorted across the road to a parking area on the other side. I laid into the front brakes and the bike stopped right now. Traction control and ABS are legit as fuck. I am a believer as of that incident. The "Safety Pack" saved my Bologna.

I made a boneheaded move on 88 myself. Let’s just say I made a 3rd lane to complete my pass. I settled down a bit after that.

that new pocket monster duc has merged with pauly. We all a got bite with that venom that weekend.  Even while riding solo back on 250 i was making the same crazy passes because it was starting to feel normal lol   

@TimTheAzn i know u miss this, deep in your heart you know this. Its just your brain telling you " you dont need this" but your heart and soul craves this. ....  You can get brand new kawi 400 abs out the door for around 4k if you search well and haggle up a bit. Thats more than enough bike for these roads. Come on out ...lets gooooo 

@Tonik  we all need to hit one more ride before winter ends. Thinking 10/5 is the next possible date for me, hope weather holds. Will post up details

Nahhhh, I need more power than that! Probably won't do anything with less power than what I got now. I do miss doing these rides, I don't miss the ride just getting to and from the ride. I almost hit Paul up to see whats up with his fz6 this weekend but I needed to be home this weekend. Have done a lot of traveling this summer already.

I wanna see Paul at the track on that Hyper now. I want to see all you guys at the track next year. I'm probably taking a break from Mid-O if they don't repave this winter and I can't ride there for free. If we do Pitt, I can start off in novice with everybody else! 😁

i might actually attempt Pitt race next season for couple of runs. I tried track long time ago. Even before ryan and @Jester_ I think iirc I was the one trying to push them to go try it. But it never clicked for me, and these boys took to it like fish to water, or more specifically behaving like fish without water when ever they are not at the track 😆

Next year will try one more time, for me I am having enough fun for free and unlimited in the streets albeit less safe, but still enjoying. Can’t imagine what I would gain from track. Now if it’s cars there is a valid reason for tracking it, can never extract the Perfomance of cars on street, but bikes I think Perfomance limited by skills and not circumstances like traffic etc
