This looks like a good ride! June 19-22

I registered and looking forward to it. It will be a ride along the Ohio River and hills of southeast Ohio from Steubenville to Cincinnati with evening stops at Athens and Portsmouth in between. If you are a HOG member, check the web site and the details.

I'm trying to decide whether to do the HOG ride or a Route 66 Mother Road Rally that will be run at about the same time. Living in Ohio, I've got the opportunity to ride the river all of the time. But, it'd be a lot of fun with a group.

I've ridden the Ohio from Portsmouth to Cincinnati on US 52. Great Ride. Lots of great riding in southeast Ohio as well. This sounds like it would be a blast.

I've also visited the Harley Dealer in Athens on several occasions. Sat on the curb drinking coffee with the owner for about 45 minutes one day, did not even know he was the owner until he got up to leave, and said "anything you need here, just let me know, I own the place".

Great riding down that way. We get down there a couple times a year.
Yeah, I've ridden to Portsmouth. They have some really cool murals on the flood walls. Southern Ohio roads are a lot like southern Indiana. We have some great roads here too.

This should be a blast, especially if they have 1,000 attendees like they did last time they did a "riding rally".

not to thread jack but it looks like we're neighbors. I ride through your area all the time when we're out killing the day.

I'm not a HOG member, but I only live about an hour from Athens up 33. Maybe I'll make it down just to check out bikes. Wonder if itd be an issue for me to just hop into the group for the day?

Just join at the national level. You do not have to join a chapter. Costs about $40.00 and you get free road service. Not much service, but it is free and most of the time, better than nothing.

You are correct. This year, at the Missouri State Rally, the 2nd largest chapter in attendance came from Nebraska. Omaha, I think.

I would advise anybody going to this to pre-register. These kinds of mobile rally's are huge undertakings, and they run off of the pre-registration fees. One of the guys in my St. Charles chapter is chairman of this year's Missouri State Rally, and we are getting an education in how it works. And our's is not even moving.

OBTW, not to hijack, but Missouri's is May 30 thru June 1 in Springfield MO.

Oh, if anybody does scoff at you, let me know, I'll call TracyB and have her sic Myrtle on them. :eek:

My wife and I are planning to go.
My wife will be riding her bike too. We have a few friends coming along as well. If it isn't too crazy, maybe we will run in to each other at the rally.
