Had a rally in Dayton Oh to attend for another forum I am a member of.
Decided to take a two day scenic route up, and another two day scenic route back.
GA - TN - KY - OH
Two days spent in Dayton for the rally, and then home.
OH - WV - VA - NC - GA
Here's a few pics of the trip.
I didn't take any in TN on the way up since it rained the whole time I was passing through. Met up with the rest of the southern contingent in TN and we headed up together.
Old bridge in northern KY
Passing into Cincinnati (we did a brief 40 mile interstate stint here, finding an alternate to go around Cincy has proved to be a traffic nightmare in previous trips)
Once in Dayton, members from the northern midwest (MN_Smurf from this board) and as far east as northern NY state met up for a 40+ bike group ride saturday around the Greater Dayton countryside.
And we are off!
I was an intersection control rider, so I was either at the front of the pack, or the back of the line.
My friend Mike, who hosts the event, led the ride. His SO Angie rides backwards on his VTX to capture some good ride pics of the parade of bikes.
One brave woman!
Sweep rider Melissa talking to Mike via the radio. Once the intersection control riders would block an intersection, we would then re-enter at the end of the pack. She would give us hand signals when it was safe for us to move to the front again so we could set up the next block.

After the group ride, we finish at Mikes house, where we then have a bike swap (a highlight of the event) and a big cookout.
