Beemers Sighted in Ohio Amish Country

Today we saw an LT and an RT parked in downtown Berlin - in the heart of Ohio's Amish country. The LT was from Sill's Motor Sales (Cleveland); the RT was from All Seasons (Wooster). A bit later, I saw you riding out of town - two-up on the LT, and a lady rider on the RT.

And then, just a few minutes later we passed another LT coming into Berlin. This one was distinguished by the Ducati Designs headlight mod. Cool.

Re: Beemers Sighted in Ohio Amish Country

My wife and I were down there Saturday 9-18-12 with the Cleveland BMW Club. We had about 38 bikes and camped at Shreve. There were groups that broke out on least 3 different routes tours. Are group did 3 winerys and 100 miles+ Amish country. There was 8 bikes in our group from a 1975 r75-5 to a 2011 rt1200r. My wife had a 1997 r850r and another lady had a 2003 r1150 plus,650 twin beamer. The campout was the weekend with Octtoberfest food at the camp. Great ride!

Cool. (you meant 8/18/12, right?)

I assume this was the BMWMOC club (BMW Motorcycle Owners of Cleveland)? They are very active, as our own Paul Mitchell can attest.

Howard,
I didn't make the Oktoberfest gathering since we were still in France. It was part of a four country adventure!

Sounds like another super adventure, Paul.

You need to include a third map in your signature - the rest of the world.
