Making this a new thread. So what do you think time frame?

Chris posted some lovely cabins: http://www.lazylanecabins.com/Default.asp

Long weekend? Weekday 3-4 day trip? Weekday would be cheaper and less traffic. Who is interested?

I'm very interested, but I have a very complicated summer. Eager to hear the details...

I have two big trips planned for the summer, its hard for me to just take a few days off but I will keep an I on the thread.

Ok, here's the deal, those cabins I'm sure are nice, the problem....It's to close to Hocking Hills state park, which is fine if you guys are into long romantic walks and sightseeing, me, I'm there to ride and as most of you know I go down numerous times a year. The good riding is vast but more S/E and East of that location. Now I'll admit it's nice to plan things months in advance as I'm sure most of you have busy Summers, but let's say you lock yourself into a cabin rental 2 or 3 months prior, the week comes up and guess what...3 days of rain, I like playing cards and getting drunk as much as the next guy but I can do that here.
There are plenty of small towns ( Zanesville, Cambridge,Newark,Heath,Athens) with cheap hotels That you can book 3 to 6 days out. I've stayed in a Best western in Heath the last couple of years, they're very cool, let me park my truck and trailer out front, the owner rides so he gets it, but there's lots of places like that.
Having said all that, I'd like to see you guys go down whatever way you decide and barring a 100% chance of rain I'll go down as well and be happy to show you some roads you'll be talking about the rest of your lives. Just thowin that out there.

Does he supply his own lube or do you just spit on it?

Mudpuppy

100 grit sandpaper - blood is free lube and better viscosity than spit

Dang, June 21 is my birthday, and I'm headed up north (via chicago and milwaukee) for a few days on an annual trip with some buds on the 27th.

I wish I could swing it, but I seriously doubt it.

On the bright side, Sturgis is looking more promising because it appears now that my son will be away at camp that week.

this day and age choppers aren't as big a fad as they were back in the day. only the hard core chopper dudes still have them. now the yuppies with more money than brains are buying the HD's of various types.

lookin for a new SG or goin the used route? if new why not just do a trade in? let the dealer worry about it.

as I said if your not a hard core chopper rider/owner. There was a bunch of yuppies that had more money than brains and were buying choppers just because of how big and popular they got from the OCC tv importance. It was faddish for those that weren't in it for the experience and fun of riding them.

Let's start a list of who all is going...for sure, as we should defintely secure some rooms.
I'm a firm believer in the KISS rule. I ride to eat to ride to drink.
Rooms will probably be in the $60 to $80 range, double occ. (one small single for Mud n Chris)

No, that's Newark, a little smaller town that's northeast of there. That's an option but it's just a little further to get to the good roads.

Thruxtonbill
04-28-2013, 08:32 AM
The Hampton Inn in Zanesville I like because of the well lit lot tucked off the main drag, free breakfast, close to where the great riding begins, clean rooms with great beds, a bit pricey but worth it IMO.

BTW, we should book ASAP. We need a head count. Perhaps we can add this to Muds OP.

Mudpuppy
04-29-2013, 10:16 AM
Hampton is always good wherever I go so I agree that is good.

I am in for sure. I will get a head count from Redline so we can book. Do we just want everyone to book their own rooms?

Also what days - June 21 through June 24?

Thruxtonbill
04-29-2013, 04:06 PM
Yeah I think booking your own rooms is best, SIMPLE right? Honestly mud, I'll prolly go back Sunday as I just have to much to do on Monday. I will be ready to go early Friday though. Kind of waiting to see if an old member Bkinger (Mike) will go.

Oh hell man I'll hang with ya, I mean I'll get spirited from time to time but will always wait up. Ya know this will be like my 7th time down there and I've found new roads everytime but there's some really technical twisties, in fact we'll have to ride SR555 and I can tell you, I slow it down there for sure. It's a roller coaster with moucho blind hills and and corners. Really have to disagree with hawg that there is better riding elsewhere, and yes hawg, I've ridden all the places you've mentioned and Cali both Norcal and Socal as well as Colorado, utah, Nevada, Arizona and more. Why? because the roads, save a few are pristine, the traffic...nada. is there a Dragon? Nope. A Snake? nope. But you won't miss em.

Yeah cant argue bout the roads in the south east corner they are nice. The dragon doesnt do much for me. It was fun Ive been twice. I would rather ride the unknown back roads or the BRP. I havent been west yet its still on the list.
7 times in hocking is a few more than I

Yeah I think booking your own rooms is best, SIMPLE right? Honestly mud, I'll prolly go back Sunday as I just have to much to do on Monday. I will be ready to go early Friday though. Kind of waiting to see if an old member Bkinger (Mike) will go.

If I can I will trailer with you. I save the rubber for the good roads. Fuck all that slab riding shit. We'll leave that for the less experienced riders. Let's book this shit up. I am good with Friday to Sunday. I was hoping for Thursday-Monday but not everyone is as fucking bad ass as me. Cut the bullshit. Who is in?

Bill, Gasman and me are the only serious ones. Who else?

I will check on the Redline side. Chuck and Steve said they want in. Might be 1 or 2 others. Jerry might come up from SC if he is free.

What say ye on the cut off to book the rooms? May 15?

Dr. Dave is in as well. The renegade rider that flies the Ducati flag. I might trailer down with him but waiting to see details. Either way Bill I will get your d rings back to you. But if he is coming from Manchester it might make more sense for me to ride down with him. I am totally out of your way. I can just ride the d rings over on my bike to you (and a good excuse to ride some miles).

I figure if we leave at 6am then we can get breakfast along the way. Ride for a couple of hours. Eat lunch. Ride for a couple of hours. Check into the hotel at 3pm. Ride until dark. Then go eat dinner. Then saturday is all day riding sun up to sun down. Dave said that his friend lives right there and we can hang out at his house as well.

Thruxtonbill
05-20-2013, 09:19 AM
That's more then cool as it looks like an old forum member BKinger might be joining us as well and I'll trailer him down as he's had some physical challenges of late. I'll talk to him today or tomorrow and find out, you do the same and try to get a confirmation. If so, will you share a room with him? Either way we'll have to book another room. Can't wait boys.

Mudpuppy
05-20-2013, 04:00 PM
Yes we still share a room. IDK on the trailer situation. First he says he is going for sure then he says he has to work. He is sketchy at best. But either way I can get my bike down there so just trailer BKinger and I will work out trailer situation on my end. Worst case I need to go to Ypsi to get a trailer. But room wise it is you and me Mr. Bill. That is a done deal. If Dave comes he will stay at his friend's house.

Bahahahahahahaha! That's funny shit!

My Dad's old buddy Bud, told us a story a few years back, With is wife at his side, she wasn't happy about the story still.

In 74 they were home on a sunday, doing chores and getting diner ready, she needed some milk, and being the biker he is, he seen this as a great excuse to shoot to the store via skooter. So he hoped on his 72 shovel, and headed to the store only to run into one of his biker buddies that had been in an accident the year before, he'd just got a whopping 27k settlement from his accident... his buddy said, "fuk this, lets go to California and party"! Needless to say, Bud came home roughly 6 MONTHS LATER!

Now, there still married... and she is the sweetest lady...

that is fucking epic. sounds like a good time to me. my grandpa used to go drinking for 3-4 days at a time back in the day. my grandma was pissed but he still did it and they remained married until the day they died.

Definitely would not work with my OL either. That shit would not fly. If she says something I don't like and I say fuck you or something she comes flying at me like a keg of dynamite. Of course I just laugh about it which pisses her off more but she definitely has a temper and wouldn't handle a 6 month absence from me too well - not to mention she can't handle the simple fucking project like painting a room without my assistance.

yeah my OL would not handle that too well at all. She is Mexican and very hot headed, with me being a Ginger, its like a seriously volatile mixture that we don't like to upset too often. When we do the fights are usually quite loud and just shy of physically violent. That being said, I love her very much and as far as I know she reciprocates. We have been together for 16+ years and wouldn't change it. Gas has been witness to those fights and heard me bitch about her but he knows we are good for each other. But a 6 month poof disappearance would be grounds for divorce. Now, back in 74 with no cell phones or internets, it would have been easier than today that damn cell of mine would have blown up for sure had I left like that.
Anyhow you guys have a great time out there in HH and post up some good pics.

I'm going to blow you away with roads that will either leave you begging for more, or crying like a baby, there's designated lunch stops and covered bridges as well as your not so normal site seeing spots.

Seriously though, whatever you wanna do but I'll tell you that the days go by quick and I for one want to ride as much as I can.

BTW, looks like Bkinger AKA lasermax (Mike), will be joining us, he made reservations at the 8. He has a pinched sciatic nerve which I understand is like living in Hell, but he's tough and wants to go. Don't know if he'll be riding his street triple or his speedmaster so we'll see.

Really looking forward to this boys, should be lot's of fun. Everyone plan on arriving early on Fri?

That is right about the edge of my window for how far I will ride without trailering it - trust me slab runs are no fun on ol yeller - she is not built for touring.

Ok then I will give you the keys to the R1 and $2,000 cash. You ride it to California and back within 6 days and if you can still walk and you still want to talk about trailering boats you don't owe me the $2,000 back and a new R1. It's a safe bet based on your logic. Make sure I get the red anniversary edition 2012 R1 when you lose the bet:

http://www.yamahamotorsports.com/assets/contentblock/12_splash_r1_01_withVideo_9TTHCYF.jpg

It will look nice in the garage next to my 06 yellow anniversary edition R1.

Now if you are talking about trailering a Harley to bike week in daytona then I hear you loud and clear. Touring bikes aren't meant to be trailered. Race bike, well they should be trailered and save that soft expensive rubber for the good roads - that's what I am just sayin.

I am shocked that so few people have jumped in on this trip. Best riding within 4 hours!

Perhaps you and Mud have scared them away. LOL

What's involved in a stator swap on a wing like that?

the stator on all wings from '75 - '87 sits at the rear of the motor so the motor has to be removed to change out a stator

Just chatted with a friend from the Triumph forum who lives nearer to Columbus then the Hocking area but not to far to ride. He has a 5 acre spread and invited us to a cookout if you guys are interested. He also said we are welcome to camp, as he has lots of shade trees and such. I told him we are set for accommodations this time but may take him up on that next time around. Lance is a great guy that last I knew of, and get this Chris, has a museum of bikes. Anyway, a very generous offer from a great guy and I thought I'd just run it by you guys.
Tomorrow is 14 days and counting boys..........yeehaw.

One week boys, can't wait. I'll contact Lance today at some point and see if Saturday night is cool for us to drop in, I'd like to put together the best route to his place to maximize our riding time. I' going to tell him there's 6 or 7 of us showing up (not sure if medics squeeze is going, seemed like news to him, lol). Hopefully everyone will get down there around noon as I have a ride route planned for Friday, if there's a change, we'll just roll with it.

Sorry guys I am not the best at PMs on here - I always forget to look and then all of a sudden see 3 notifications. Not ignoring anyone just not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Email or text is fastest response time from me although my mudpuppy email is no longer connected to my god damn phone because I lost my last phone at the airport. Sick of this piece of shit old ass company phone - might just turn it in one day (just to see the look on their face) and say thanks but no thanks and just go get my own phone that I won't use for work (fuck em). Then I will be more interconnected. In short nothing personal and not trying to ignore anyone.

But Hocking Hills - fuck yes. Washing and prepping the bike tonight. Would have liked to fix the god damn license plate bracket light but no time. Then I am packing all my gear, etc. and setting aside so I just can walk out the door Friday, load the bike and we can go. Already put your d-rings in my leather riding pants pocket Bill so I can't forget - definitely can't ride with them in there and will not be going without my gear. Are we going to grill at all? I am leaning towards no because I feel lazy and don't want to fuck with coolers, burgers, grills, etc. for 2 days especially when we are going to Bill's friend's house and we could just get whatever we need at local grocery store for cheap if we need to. I think I might just bring a cooler and at some point I can load up with waters or powerades and beers, etc. Unless of course I get motivated and get some drinkage before Friday. Doubt it. I just plan on eating at restaurants other than the cookout at the local dude's place.

Gents...

I have been through a bunch the last few days...

This morning as my mind is still a stir of crazyness on 2 hours of sleep... I'm all game.. we all agree that I would benefit from getting away from the house that just is hell right now without the dog. Miles on the bike would help clear my mind... then this afternoon while at work it hit me... I'm trying to leave the house because it sucks right now and get away from all these reminders. But I realized, that as much as it sucks going through this with the wife, I can't imagine doing it alone and I was about to do that. I spoke to some guys at work to see if I was off base and then her sister. We all agree that she would and we would just tell me to just go. I waited to see her tonight to make any decision... it didn't help. She was like me and her emotions were good & bad. While talking to Sprink on the phone about it, she had to leave the room... I found her in the spare bedroom balling... that's it.. I pulled the trigger. I can't leave her home alone during this, it's selfish of me and just not right. I wouldn't normally back out of a ride like this, but I'm sure you all can understand the circumstances. I have spoke to Sprink & Medic and they are going to room up and it even saves Sprink a couple dollars.

I appreciate your consideration and understanding, and it seems when I point out the selfishness I would be doing, people get it.

I will try to squeeze a ride in Saturday and try to do a TWC on sunday to get some miles in. In the mean time her dad is also coming down from up north (coming down a day early) to see my wife (then this weekend a grad party) because of this.

Guys please have fun, get some pics and vids. I'm sorry and thank you. I wish I wasn't in this situation...

A ride down there in about a month and another one in the fall. In it to win it like fucking yzerman. Great fucking weekend. Amazing roads so close who would have thunk it? Incredible people to hang out with and tolerate my insanity. Really great to spend some time with all y'all both on the road and hanging out. I'd ride with any of you motherfuckers any day of the week anywhere on the planet. Thanks Bill for driving down there and back. Made it easy as hell. Super cheap weekend for 500 miles of great roads. Videos are uploaded to the laptop now just need to go through them. Let's do it again soon and definitely anyone who can make it should definitely experience ohio's finest roads. A stop @ gilchrist is mandatory.
