The motorcycle ride to get this photos was pleasant. First up to Coshocton, Ohio on the backroads to get to State Route 514. Then we picked up 93 north through the Amish country. In Waynesburg, we picked up State Route 44 to Chardon, Ohio.

After a visit in Chardon, we went to Burton. The historic downtown was worth a visit. Then onto Blazin’ Bills Barbecue, a popular motorcycle stop. Then a ride back home.

I enjoyed the ride on 93 more than the rest of the trip. It was interesting to find so much agricultural activity so close to the Cleveland Metro area. Maple products, cheese, and of course – corn. The Amish community is larger than I expected too.

Geauga County really doesn’t have any large metro areas, just smaller cities. The county seat, ┬áChardon, is beautiful to walk around, but most places were closed on a Saturday afternoon. Like most old Ohio small towns, the rent is cheap and much of the downtown area is just antique and specialty shops.
