Fall SEO 2020 Ride Report

Post by Deagle10 » Tue Nov 10, 2020 3:33 pm

My first time riding in SE Ohio.

1047 miles.
1: Hour lost wandering amazed in Iron Pony.
1: Twisty 555 in the dark.
8: "Oh f*ck" top of hill moments
Many: Houses/Trailers I was afraid would make me a basement pet if I crashed and needed help at night.
3: Eight ball ass kickings by Ray (Ohio State intramural pool champ 2 years running) and his brother Dave.
2: Times Ray made up new pool rules.
5: Hours riding route 26 and connecting roads before lunch....sometimes even with Ray/Dave/Wayne in sight.
0: Attractive ladies in the laundry mat on Saturday night when I was getting quarters for the pool table. (come on college town)
1: Close loss to Fred in Eight Ball after adopting Ray's "rules".
2.5: Fifths of whiskey/bourbon.
0: Days I woke up without a headache. I blame the bed.
3: Days of perfect weather.
2: Great hugs from FJRFarrier.
2: Incredibly lucky "get out of jail free" speeding stories by Wayne and Ray.
0: Times late for KSU.
Much: Laughs and great scenery with some old friends and some new friends. Can't wait for the 2021 Ramble.

Awesome report. Many parallel observations that coincide with my first visit in 2004. And I wholeheartedly endorse your signature line. That is a mantra in SE Ohio.


Oh.

Sounds like a fantastic time! I wish I could have made it, but family commitments took priority.
