I'm going to be at the court house for the tea party (I'm on security detail), so I won't be available until 2 or so. How about meeting up at Woodsons?

This is my first year riding the area so I'm still looking for good roads. Woodson's is downtown, right on 24. Great dealership - BMW, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, KTM (but no street bikes)...

I was heading out of town on Lake Avenue towards New Haven - there are some good roads out there - when I saw a blue R1 in the ditch all broken to shit, traffic backed up 1/4 mile, a car on the opposite side of the road with a massive dent in the front driver's fender and an ambulance just sitting there with cops directing traffic... looked REALLY bad. Didn't see any blood, or the biker anywhere, but I'd be surprised if he's not really fucked up or dead. No idea what happened, but there's a couple of big curves right there, so I'm guessing one of them crossed the center line and judging by the bike, I'm guessing he was moving pretty fast. It's right on a stretch of road where you can really get on it if you want. In fact, I had to hit the brakes pretty hard because I was winding it out and came around the first curve to find traffic backed up.

After that, I just rode home and parked the bike for the afternoon... Didn't want my wife to see news about a biker getting hit and killed in the same area I was riding in and worry for even one second it might be me. Plus it kind of killed the mood.

Hopefully the downed rider will be ok. I have been at the scene of a couple motorcycle wrecks, including my own, and I hope I never have to go through it again. Your deffinately right about it killing the mood.

There were thousands of bikes out saturday. My wife and I rode to Lake City Cycle in Warsaw and went by the church in Arcola where the blessing of the bikes was being held. I heard on the news there were over 2000 bikes. I bet you could count on 1 hand how many sport bikes were there. It was a perfect day to ride. I had my leathers on and actually started to sweat. It was great!! On route 5, south out of Larwill, the highway had a couple nice posted 35 mph curves which was fun.

Can't wait now till next weekend. Hopefully its nice again.
