    We had a great time this past weekend riding the amazing roads in southern Ohio and northern West Virginia. The weather wasn’t optimal, but the roads were. We had a total of 24 bikes and 25 riders (see final roster in Post #1). The camaraderie, mutual support, and shared enthusiasm for motorcycling were something to behold.

    A special thanks to Mike Sikora, Jerry Riha and Kurt Shreffler for leading groups of riders which made it possible for riders of different interests to ride together. Another special thank you to Dennis Owens for helping Keith find a towing service and getting his bike back to the hotel.

    I’m already thinking of next year – all suggestions are welcome. The three day/two night format seemed to work well. I’m thinking about other possible destinations – maybe northwestern PA or northern WV. October seems to be a good time – it was perfect the last weekend of October last year, albeit a little less than perfect this year.

    If you have photos of the weekend please send them to me and I’ll upload them as a group to the club website. I’ll also forward them to Don Poremski who is “thinking about” doing a write up for the next newsletter.
