Every fall, various members of my family get together for a week of riding. No wives or girlfriends, just the men riding in cool areas of the country and eating food that's probably bad for us.
This years Men's Fall Trip took place in south central Kentucky, based out of Berea Ky. This years group included myself (FJR1300 Yamaha), my son (MT-10 Yamaha) son's FIL (Honda ST 1300) a nephew from Nevada (Honda CB 500X) and my younger brother (Triumph Bonneville T-120). 5 days and a little over 1000 miles for the trip. Hot & sunny each day. Crazy weather for late September, but we had a grand time and road a ton of great roads.
here's a couple of pics
Group before leaving
Big Hill, Ky on Rt 421 in Kentucky our main north-south corridor from the hotel
typical curvy road
We particularly wanted to ride this road Ky 192 "The Rattlesnake" between London & Somerset that Kentucky has been advertising in the magazines. It was pretty good, but there are better
the group standing in front of Papa Leno's restaurant in Berea, Ky. Probably the best pizza any of us have ever eaten. We ate dinner there twice it was so good.
Great little ice cream shop around the corner from Papa Leno's
none of us planned on weighing ourselves when we got home lol
Lots of great roads down there ... particularly
192 "the Rattlesnake" from London Ky to Somerset Ky
66 from Oneida to Pineville (this was our favorite..what a road)
89 from McKee to Winchester (second favorite..another great road)
39 from Somerset Ky to Lancaster Ky
25 from Berea Ky to London Ky (probably 3rd favorite..very scenic)
627 from Winchester Ky to Paris Ky (through Ky thoroughbred horse country..beautiful scenery and gorgeous horse farms on both sides of the road)
No issues with any of the bikes, no one fell over or crashed. We did eat too much at a few of the restaurants lol. Stayed at the Quality Inn Berea. Staff was great, hotel was clean & reasonable and the indoor pool felt great after a hot day of riding.
Some of the restaurants we'd recommend
Hitz BBQ Berea
The Dinner Bell Berea
The Bus Stop Boonesville
Papa Leno's Berea
Old Town Amish Store Berea
