I'm in Findlay, Oh. which is about 25 miles South of Bowling Green, and maybe 100 North of Columbus. Been riding about 1 1/2 years, Ninja 500 is my first bike, and I usually do not get on heavily traveled roads, as I've learned that the cars/trucks have a difficult time seeing cyclists. Having said that, I have a county road map guide of Ohio and can get most anywhere in this state on back roads, so when you two want to ride?
The second link you provided is very helpful, Dragknee. Most of those roads are more toward your neck of the woods, but I have been on parts of 235 toward and South of McComb. What do you know about the backroads over toward Bellefontaine, as that is not too far from Findlay, and it looks interesting on a map? I have also been over toward Massilon( Mohican State Park ) and Hocking Hills via car, so I know those roads would be great on a cycle.
Hey guys, I was going to add a "me too". I'm in Columbus, too. I second Ninjamon, I'm do the heavily traffic roads around here, but I hate it-- I'm a big-fat sissy. I've been riding for quite a while and I have yet to be on the interstate, and I don't really plan on it either.
I can't imagine taking 33 down to Hocking Hills, but I know a ton of people who have done it and absolutely love it.
I'm in the Grandview/Upper Arlington area.
Yeah, I know, what you say is true... I've just got a mental block on that kinda riding right now. I figured I was going to give 315 a try during an off-hours period of the day now that I've got something that can tame it a tad easier. That'll help with the fears.
Yes and no. I don't park on 18th out in front of the SEL, I park on 19th behind Celeste Labs. From what I heard, there's another red Ninja identical to mine floating around; you can always spot whatever I'm driving because of the WV license plate.
