do be aware that secondary highways usually have cross traffic and, as we all know, they will say, "I never saw that motorcycle".

If I was in Cleveland and I was looking for interesting parts of Ohio that are good bike roads, I think I'd stick to the southeasterly part of the state. There are lots of good winding roads down there with a lot less population to deal with.

Ohio is an incredible state in terms of the diversity of topography and different types of economic activities. You can never be bored in Ohio. Just stay east of Columbus and south of Akron, and you should be alright.

However, if you want just an incredible short day trip, head for the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in Cleveland. When you're standing ten feet from the original Beatles jackets and guitars; or Jim Morrison's cub scout uniform, that is a "trip in itself".

I just got back from a 4 day 1300 mile run through Maryland. West Virginia twice, Kentucky and Ohio. Southern Ohio had some great twisties and the roads are fairly new covering on them. But I noticed allot of road TRASH! sand and gravel on the roads that I took. Just watch for the stuff. If you get a chance try RT 50 from east to west in West Virginia, the eastern protion is a blast, good roads through the montains and clean! The routes I did through Ohio when I came up from Kentucky was 23 North to Circleville then 56 East to Athens the 690 North to 550 East then down 7 to hook up with 50.

Hi mjohnson,

I just came west out of Columbus on Route 36. Great country road through some neat little farming communities. Lots of twisties and good pavement. This bridge was on a side road and I went back to get a snapshot of the Wing and the bridge.

I have a SilverWing that I got last fall, and just picked up a 1993 GoldWing Aspencade this spring. I am starting to venture around the eastern side of Ohio. Starting point from Youngstown. If you want to read some of my misadventures you can find them on my web page.

I also have a bicycle page, and a few other things to check out.
