My daughter and I are thinking about going. Look for a beat up WR250F and a new TTR125L. Or a black Ford stepside with a bashed in tailgate. Girls...

We can go the 29th or 30th it doesn't matter to me. Lets decide soon though.

I'm happy to be the trail guide of the slow group since I'll be working off a hangover that day (I'm having a pre-July 4th party the evening before I wuss out on the BIG hill climbs even on my best day anyway! Been riding down there about 5 years so I know the trails decently well (not perfectly, but enough to get out no problem)
Fred, since you may be making a long haul, you are welcome to stay at my house in North Columbus if you don't have a place to crash before the ride. I'm about 1 hr 20 mins from the trailhead in Wayne, and about 25 minutes from I-70 and I-270 coming into town.
Looking forward the Ohio TT ride

Park at bottom of Dorr Run (just up from MJs) and run up to New Straitsville? We could divide into groups and go different routes in the Dorr Run and middle loop to keep the size down. My buddy and I could park at New Straitsville and out of Carbon Hill and ride down so we would have gas and tools at each section.
Either of us can navigate or ride cleanup. Just let us know what is needed.

Also I see that you work close to me. I work at Safelite Glass Corp. which is at Sawmill Road and 270.
Mike, I got my stitches out yesterday and hopefully now it will start healing.

I'm happy to be a trail guide/organizer. If we park at Carbon Hill-that will be centrally located enough to ride in one direction, come back grab lunch then go in the other direction. But really I'm game for anything.
Let's finalize a date, then I'll post it on the other forums. I don't discriminate against bikes-if you ride, you'll cool with me
I lived in Dublin for a few years, I just moved to Powell last summer. Do you know about the little riding area on Sawmill Road near Summit view (W side of Sawmill, just S of Summit View)?
It's not much, but a good place to test jetting and do a little afterwork riding since it's so close. . I am going over there tonight to test an FHP needle and a few different pilot combo's if you want to stop by to say hello.
Sean I hope your knee heals up fast! I bet all your buds are giving you a bunch of S&^t for that one! If you still need to borrow a front wheel, let me know. I need it as a spare for the SE PA ride mid-month, but other than that...
Looking forward to the Wayne trip!

My rim seems to be alright, but I have to get a new rotor and handlebars. Already ordered them. I also need to change my fork seals and oil.
Lets make it the 30th.

Let me know if you are heading out maybe we can meet somewhere on I70 and follow each other out. I'm going to try an grab a couple of my riding buddys to go. Is the 6/30 date set?
How is the riding? I love trying new places.
