A nice route. I prefer the 125 segment of the route. I took 125 from about Georgetown. Unfortunately, there is a lot of asphalt patch on much of 125 to West Union - but once there it was decent. I expected more river views on 52 - and the road had some really bad areas (experimental pavement, some construction, a segment of pretty big bumps at regular intervals). I *loved* the feeling that I had the roads almost entirely to myself.

This is a great route, and very popular with motorcyclists in the area - 52 is definitely a popular ride!
You could easily spend a full day or two just exploring the different roads in Shawnee Park.
Great listing by the author.
