Ohio ride

Got to ride some of the good roads in Ohio. The weather was very good, very little traffic. The gas pipe line project, added a few road work stops, and a detour.
Ohio's Dragon's Tail (Rt 78), The Ohio Cousin of the "Tail of the Dragon" (Rt 536), The Triple Nickel - Route 555,
Ohio's Route 800 (south of I-70), Old US 21. I found them to be more like roller coasters, than just twisty, never knowing what was over the next rise, right or left, made for a bit of a more cautious attack. If I knew what was coming, I may have gotten rid of the chicken stripe.

Glad you got to enjoy some of those great roads in SE Ohio. In the Fall we're going to base out of Athens and ride the "cloverleaf" on all sides, and part of it has the twisties you described. A lot less crowded, and much closer for me in Cincinnati than heading over to WV. Being a 5 year newbie, I like to follow the leader so I can get a hint of what is coming over those blind rises.
