Hello from Union County

Recommended Posts

I’m a newer rider on a 2007 Honda 919. I’m looking for more people to ride with. I am open to travel all over Ohio and surrounding states for bigger rides.

I rode up to the peak of Spruce Knob, WV yesterday and back home. 649 miles total. The WV 47 road and route up Spruce Knob had amazing 15 - 30 MPH marked curves with almost zero road debris or issues with the pavement in the turns.

Welcome to the site, and the area. That's a long haul in one day, glad the roads were clean and fun.

If it ain't too much trouble, I would love to know the whole route you took.

I used the Scenic app on Apple phones To generate the route avoiding highways on the way down with a quick detour on OH 555 in Zanesville on the way out. The route back allowed highways, but included the best roads I encountered in WV getting back to larger 4C471357-8C48-47EA-962B-0BBB323C3756.thumb.png.72628b1c36df565de35e6585bcefbbe7.pngroads.

I agree. I just picked up a 2010 Honda VFR 1200F as a second bike. I’ll have to try the SE Ohio and WV roads with that bike. Much more sporty position and about 65 more hp than my 2007 Honda 919.

I don’t recommend driving through Chicago at any time. 98 degree weather is especially bad. The information is from the scenic app. Anything over the speed limit must be a glitch. Notice the extremely slow speeds for my entire trip through Chicago. I probably stopped completely 50 times.

Always take the long way around Chicago. It is worth it, unless you know the super-secret back way through downtown.

yeah going anywhere near chicago is always a 100% shitshow. bumper to bumper at 90mph then slam on the brakes and come to a full stop for 30 seconds and repeat. hate that drive every time
