    Lightbulb Traveling Picnic JULY 2017 - New Information

    Started as a group of Goldwing riders - now opening to other brands of motorcycle enthusiasts.
    You would be welcome if you want to join the gang.


    Each year a group of us goes to a different place just to eat some picnic lunch together, and get a little riding together in interesting places.

    Next year (2017) we'll be in the Hocking Hills area July 15 2017, so if you're in the area and want to have a nice little lunch,
    we pass around a hat afterwards with a $10 suggestion for the eats and drinks.
