Spencerville Ride

We rode to Spencerville, Ohio, today for lunch.

From Wikipedia:

"Spencerville was built on the new Miami and Erie Canal ca. 1840. The canal made the area quite prosperous through the 1850s, when railroads began supplanting the slower canal system."

We rode along the canal for a while and then rode over to Mendon, Ohio to "Jim's Harley Davidson" to see the museum Jim has at his dealership.  We rode through Wapakoneta, Ohio  (hard to get the complete name on the water tower) to get to Jim's place:

Wapakoneta, Ohio is the boyhood home of Neal Armstrong.  There's a museum there honoring Neal but we did not go there as I didn't know about it until I got home.  Here's a link to the museum:

Jim's Harley Davidson museum is really nice and he has an extensive collection of Harley Davidson memorabilia.  We visited Jim's place once before and the pictures are here:

After Mendon, we rode down to The Pullman Restaurant at Celina, Ohio, for pie and ice cream, and then rode on home.

220 miles and near ninety degrees.
