Conneaut Knoebels Ride

Thursday - Home to Dubois, PA

I took a few days before a family trip to Knoebels to ride across PA and hit my other favorite little amusement park, Conneaut Lake. Got an early start on Thursday and was on the road about 8:15am. The theme of the morning get-to-the-good-stuff part of the ride would turn out to be trucks, truck, and even more trucks. If it wasn't slow pickup trucks it was belching tractor trailers, but none were as much fun as the dump truck on 41 showering me with mulch. Stopped at the Gap WaWa to gas up and clean up.

897 was fun as always, except when one side of my new smoked visor popped off on one side. Got off route a little bit after that until Gold Mine Ro...

This year marked the 100th anniversary of Il Gyro d'Italia so, I thought it would be neat to catch the Stelvio stage of Il Gyro. Headed north out of Parma on my faithful Guzzi to our first night's stay on the shores of Lake Garda

I had arrived while the Mille Miglia was being run. I knew sumthin was up as, I kept seeing whole slews of classic cars. These blokes were heading back to the UK in their Ferraris

This year I bought a Super Ténéré to ride on dirt roads as well as paved roads.  I haven’t had a chance to ride many dirt roads yet but on the few occasions that I did, nothing went wrong. However, Thursday (June 29) I got in over my head on one that had mud and deep ruts. In case you didn’t know, mud and deep ruts are evil, especially if you are riding a heavy bike.  

The day started quite nicely for Paul, Dave and I. They were riding their Wee Stroms. We did some paved roads, had lunch in Sussex NB and then decided to revisit a dirt road that Paul and I had started to do earlier this spring but turned away because it was still too early in the year. This time it looked a lot better and we were progressing very well in 2nd and 3rd gear ...

Ride Reports
Jamie and I had a fantastic 10 day trip. We got to see a part of the country that we do not get to visit very often. I have completed the ride report. It is 8 pages and has many pictures attached. I am posting the link to the Report as it is too lengthy to re post here on the forum. I will also post a few images that might get you excited about the ride report.

I arrived in Ol' Blighty not sure if I would head north or south until I got the weather outlook. South didn't look very good and north looked even worse. I began the trip from Shropshire by cutting over into Wales to catch the A483, an old favorite that cuts a twisty path into South Wales. A Tunnel of green



and on into the Exmoor National Park where there are some comfortable roads that match the Truxton's engine output

I posted in the "what happened to the forum thread" that I would post up some of our old ride reports, so here it goes.

My ride reports are generally rides that my wife and I do. Many times, my daughter Kristin joined us, a few are my solo rides, and occasionally other riders have come along. Most are in Oklahoma, several in Arkansas, and a few in other states. These were all written for a private, members-only type forum because my wife was uncomfortable with making them public. Now, she says it's okay to post them.

My reports are primarily picture reports and light on the text. They are mostly dual-sport, country road type rides but we do a few longer rides on our street bikes too. I try to include a little of the history or backgro...

Ok, going to post the full content because someone (*Blue* *cough* *Best*) was complaining about a lack of motorcycle content. And since i have 1)  a motorcycle, 2) good weather and 3) time, here is a fresh ride report.

Feast your eyes, suckers!!  Cool

It was my birthday and there was only one thing I wanted: to ride my motorcycle with Dan into the mountains and have lunch under a sunny sky. To my delight, the day was sunny and the roads were clear. My only problem was my thumb: five days earlier I had a little accident on my bicycle and badly sprained the thumb on my right hand. I could use the hand (Hey! Look at me typing this up!) but it would not very comfortable on the throttle. Oh well - it was my birthday and I didn't care!...
