Dinner Bell

We rode over to Burlington, Indiana for lunch this Wednesday.  Nine of us rode over and eight of us rode on down toward Indianapolis.  The "famous" Dinner Bell Restaurant at Burlington:

We rode south on Indiana 29 until it turned into US 421 and then on south to 71st Street in Indianapolis.

By this time, traffic was getting heavy, so our intrepid leader, Merle, turned west to get us out of the traffic.  I breathed a sigh of relief as the traffic in Indianapolis is hard to deal with when you try to get eight motorcycles together through all the stop lights.  We were separated a few times and had to wait until all the bikes were back together.

We turned north off of 71st St. onto Lafayette Road up to 116th St. and then east to U.S. 421 and then back north to 176th street, back east to U.S. 31, and north to home.

 
Very nice ride with perfect weather.  I rode 193 miles and didn't get tired at all.  In fact, I mowed our yard when I got home.  I hope we have many more days like today!

Next time,I'll have to remember to go farther West than 421 to get around the West side of Indy!

Where do you see any "old men"? :)

You're right. I should have said "wise old men".
