Ohio Stoc Meet 2017 took place at Lake Hope State Park in Ohio this year, and I just had to go. Stoc meets are mainly for Honda ST1100 and 1300 owners. I used to ride an ST1300, and know a lot of these guys from back in the days. Even though I currently ride a BMW R1200 GSA, I am still welcome to attent these great meets.
The ride was about 460 miles each way. Loaded the bike up on Wednesday June 7, took off the morning of June 8, and arrived around 1:30 PM. Unloaded the bike, and took a look at the cabin I was staying in with 3 others. Nice! AC, kitchen, , living room, 2 bedrooms and screened-in porch.
Filing in on Thursday afternoon
Chili simmering and almost ready to eat
You know, there's always room for more
Headed out to Old Man's Cave in Hocking Hills State Park, and started early in the morning to beat the heat.
Interesting, peaceful place..
Rode back home Sunday. Started at daybreak, again to beat the heat. By the time I came down the mountains down to North Carolina, it was already 85 degrees.
Never been riding in Ohio before. Very nice roads. Lots of rolling hills and farmland. Deer were out in force during the morning hours. Staying on your toes always pays off.
