  5. Leg 3 is in the book, good ride, 3 cross county’s, 2 vision’s,1 hammer. No problems, I near miss when a lady pullled out in front of us the XCT brakes worked well and the 2 second gap between bikes served us well. Good lunch a Mr Lee’s in Cambridge. It was my honor to serve as Leg Captain. - Gene

  15. Welcome to Leg 2 of the 2022 V2V. My name is Gene Hunt and I'm honored to be your leg captain for this leg. We will depart the Hotel at 8AM and backtrack to the Old National Road/Victory Highway which is the road we will follow to Uniontown. Please ensure you have a full tank of gas. This ride is very scenic going through mountains of Western MD as well as Southern PA. It is also full of things to see. We will stop for gas in LaVale MD, a Sheetz, ~100 miles from hotel in Frederick. We will stop for an early lunch at Sand Springs Saloon & Steakhouse | FROSTBURG, MD | Sand Springs Saloon & Steakhouse | HOME there is outside place for us so that our four legged friend can join us. I have planned a side trip, up to Flight 93 Memorial, it will be a brief visit of ~45 mins at the site We will also stop a 2 Tollhouses that are still standing the first one in LaVale, MD https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Vale_Tollgate_House and the second one in Addison, Pa. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petersburg_Tollhouse We will also ride by one in Hancock MD, but there isn’t a safe place to stop. The mile markers are still on the route so look for them on the right hand side of the road. They will change along this section of the road, they will start out looking like headstones until Cumberland, MD, marking the distance back to Baltimore. After Cumberland they look more like the National Monument in DC, they are made of steel but painted white so they look like concrete. On one side they mark the distance to Cumberland, MD and the other side they mark the distance to Wheeling, WV. We will also stop at the Casselman Bridge https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casselman_Bridge which is historically significant and on the National Historic Register. We will end our ride for the day at the Holiday Inn Express in Uniontown, there is an Applee’s walking distance(.3 mile) from hotel for dinner. - Gene

  18. Welcome to Leg 3 of 2022 Annual V2V. My name is Gene Hunt and I'm honored to be your leg captain for this leg. We will depart the Hotel at 8AM and follow the Old National Road/Victory Highway to Pickerington, Ohio. Our first point of interest will be the Searights Toll House https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Searights_Tollhouse%2C_National_Road Our next point of interest along the route will be a stop at Wheeling Park to visit one of the Madonna of the Trail monuments, one of a series of 12 monuments dedicated to the spirit of pioneer women in the United States. The monuments were commissioned by the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution. They were installed in each of the 12 states along the National Old Trails Road, which extended from Cumberland, Maryland, to Upland, California. We will actually pass one as we go by Nemacolin Golf Course but there is not a good place to pullover. After a brief visit we’ll continue on the National Road/Victory Highway, jogging onto I-70 for a brief 21 miles, then back onto the Old National Road/Victory Highway to our next stop at the Salt Fork “S” bridge, hen a gas stop before continuing to lunch at Mr. Lees Mr. Lee's Restaurant (mrleesrestaurant.com) in Cambridge. After lunch we will stop at another S bridge near New Concord, Ohio at Fox Run. We’ll continue on National Road/Victory Highway and cross over one leg of the “Y” bridge, then go up the hill to Putnam Hill Park which provides a nice overlook/photo op of the bridge and rivers below. http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/zanesville-ybridge After a brief visit at the park we will continue on the National Road/Victory Highway and follow it to our final stop for this leg, the Holiday Inn Express. Reynoldsburg There is a TGI Fridays walking distance from the hotel as well as other options. I hope to get us there in time to make a visit to the AMA Hall of Fame Museum americanmotorcyclist.com if anyone is interested.

  19. Was thinking since the leg 6 STL stop is kind of the halfway point and with it being Sunday the 26th when the group would be getting here, if its permissible to reach out to a local shop owner to be on standby if anyone would happen to have any issues once here that would need addressing? His shop is a mere 15 minutes away from the hotel but I figured if he had a heads up he would be in the mindset of possibly having to do a roadside/parking lot fix if needed. Don't know if this has happened before or was needed but I would think trying to find a shop or mechanic last minute especially on a weekend could be a hassle. Ive been to his shop only once but he has been highly recommended and if you want to look him up beforehand his shop is 007 Cycles inc., 1430 state st, granite city, IL.

  22. I went over our route again and if leaving at 9am it showed it would be almost 6 pm when we got to the hotel. So I took out a picture stop (a boat ramp on the river) and moved the start time to 0830 and that puts our arrival time closer to 5 pm. Altogether it is 312 miles and 8.5 hours start to finish and I'm assuming it's with the layover times I have in the route, an hour for lunch, 30 minutes at the war memorial and 15-20 minutes at gas stops. I have printouts of the route directions, don't think we will leave anyone behind as we will mostly be on a 2 lane highway once we are on 94. Other than that, can't think of anything else at the moment until Sunday night at dinner.

  23. Hello to all the leg 1 riders. I am your co-captain. I will meet you in Mt. Laurel, NJ, and lead you the remainder of the leg to Frederick, MD. We will have 1 variation to out route, due to construction, but it won't be too far off the path. I look forward to meeting all of you. Lobo MA RR

  24. So looking into the pool situation at the KC hotel led me to see and notice they don't offer a free continental breakfast there, but with and at the hotel restaurant they offer a breakfast buffet for 10 dollars. Thought that would be a good thing to know as most hotels do offer a free breakfast of some sort. And also confirmed the Hampton in Collinsville does include a hot complimentary breakfast.

  29. Please check your email and reply to the Saturday night dinner info if you haven’t yet. I need to let the restaurant know soon so they’ll have time to get food prices on food. Ely is pretty rural so I want to give them as much time as possible. Who’s getting excited?? This girl!!!! ☺️
