|AMA Motorcycle Hillclimb
Sunday - June 22, 2003
I rode my 1981 Yamaha 1100 Midnight Special on the
scenic trip to Brown County on this sunny hot day.
Joining me on his BMW 1100, was Jerome and his boy,
Jake. Our friend Darren drove his van, bringing along a
Grill-2-Go, food, coolers and some more friends.
After we paid the $15 admission, we setup the grill and I
was soon enjoying a porterhouse steak. We broke out
the lawnchairs and beer, sat back and watched the
bikes zip up the ski slope. It usually took them about
7.5 - 8 seconds.
You mountain people can have a
laugh at this hill. Its like the only spot
in central Indiana to snow ski.
AND, it went out of business.
But you can see they left the ski lifts.
Some of the kids were cooling off in the
nearby pond/stream. There wasn't much
in the way of shade for watching the hill climb.
Afteward, I followed Jerome through the back
roads of southern Indiana as we enjoyed the
curving roads that wound through the woods
and over rolling countryside. Great trip!
