This is the second annual ride, and trust me that you won't want to miss this one!  When Russell and Greg argue over which one has the best roads to ride on, you can't lose.  Greg just released the route sheet for the 2018 version, so take a look to see what they came up with when they work together.     :great:

Silver 2011 C-14. Previous rides: KZ-400, KZ-750, KZ-1000.  Keep the rubber side down.  Ride Fast......Live Slow......

Russell Fleming turned the route sheet into a .gpx file.   :motonoises:  Please download to your GPS, since it's not always a given that the ride can be shared before the start.  Another great ride you will not want to miss!

The ride report.....

The weather was perfectly sunny, and for a change not windy for the second annual Greg and Russell’s Favorite Roads ride April 22nd, 2018. After 17 of us ate a hearty breakfast at the busy Dutch Country Restaurant near Hanover, PA, we set out  to take on an entirely new set of roads.  Greg and Russell each led a group of riders, and as usual the pace was brisk and the ride well planned as we bounced north and south several times on the Mason-Dixon line. We know tires are expensive and wear down fast. However this was a free ride considering the tires since we only rode on the sides which we usually throw away unused.  Don’t miss out on next year, since these guys are not even close to running out of roads.  (Is that telephone pole going to fall over?)

Omitted sentence from the report….. >:D
I bet that young squid on the sport bike was wondering “what the hell” as five old guys on sport touring and an ADV bike roared past him and just kept going!

History of the ride.
2017 Russell picked the route
2018 Greg picked the route
2019 Russell will pick the route and be ready to travel to new start location. I am already working on the new route.
