I have to start this review by admitting that I am a little biased about this particular ride. I grew up in the area and have traveled these roads since I was a child. With that said, around here, this is one of the best rides you can take on a motorcycle; I do it several times a year. You get some of the finest East-Central Indian has to offer, hills, curves, trees, and rivers. It is also a historic area; you will travel alongside the canal that once ran from Hagerstown to Cincinnati, so history buffs may enjoy the sites. I agree with the other reviewer who said the ride to Richmond was rather boring, not much to see. Even so, Richmond, situated on I-70, has all of the restaurants and hotels you might need when traveling through the area. In addition, this loop is near both I-70 and I-74 and since it is a short ride, anyone passing through will enjoy this scenic diversion. There are some eateries along the way in Connersville, Metamora and Brookville, no worries about fuel either. Take some time and adjust your route to Brookville Reservoir, the largest body of water in the area. Right now, State Road 121 from Connersville to U.S. 52 is under construction and closed. You may want to postpone your trip or consider picking up US 52 in Rushville and following it to Brookville.
