It was a fine ride... Would like to do again in the fall to see the trees. The article mentions Black Swamp Choppers... They're permanently closed. Are at Dales Diner in Waterville, good food.

Greatest ride in the Wood-Henry-Defiance county areas. I like it best in fall for tree colors and the harvest dust in the air for those blazing orange skies at dusk. Possibly best non-lake ride in state... great pavement!
