Chopper Bob’s Motorcycle Tire And Lube In Newark, Ohio.

Chopper Bob's Motorcycle Tire And Lube And Jugz Tavern In Newark, Ohio

It’s an unusual combanation, Newark, Ohio’s Chopper Bob’s Motorcycle Tire And Lube and Jugz Taverm is a place where you can get maintenance done to a motorcycle while you get a drink and eat at the same time. I have not visited yet, so I’m not sure if they only do Harley-Davidson work or if other brands are services as well. There is more information and a full schedule of entertainment events on their website.

Newark’s motorcycle community is huge and I’ve often wondered why we don’t have more motorcycle repair shops. Many riders go to Mount Vernon Mid-Ohio Suzuki/Honda, The Iron Pony on the east side of Columbus, or other out-of-town shops. It’s great to see a business in Newark and the unique setup is interesting too.

Link Updates For July, 2011.

Here are the latest Newark, Ohio website additions found for the link directory.

No checks have been made recently for deleted websites. In this economy, I’m afraid to look. Fortunately, sites added always far outnumber the sites that are no longer working. Let’s hope that trend does not change.

Anyone who has a business should take a look at Phil’s Carpentry And Construction. I know, it’s not the flashiest website ever, but it’s effective and it’s free, not to mention easy to do. I found him through Facebook. Here’s a business that is not “tech” centered at all and they are effectively marketing their business for free using Facebook and Blogger. The only part of this website that costs money is the domain name and possibly any help that was used for the setup. No ongoing fees, no contract, no strings. They can even transfer this to a better platform and it will retain it’s place in the search engines. This is a prime example of what any business can and should do. 1 job from these efforts is a huge return on their investment.

I found The Ancient Ohio Trail website during a visit to the Newark, Indian Mounds. There is so much new information being uncovered about the Indian heritage in Ohio that it’s much more interesting than I remember during field trips in school. Be sure to check the website out.

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer and from the huge number of visitors in search of information on the local fireworks, I’m glad that the event section of the website helped you find what you were looking for. I enjoy posting the events, so keep the submissions coming.

The Mopar Nationals will be held August 12-14 at National Trails Raceway. Along with this the nearby cities of Newark, Heath, and Hebron, Ohio sponsor many events including cruising on Route 79 in Heath.

The event includes cruising on Heath’s Route 79 with enough action that the road is lined with people as the cars make the rounds. Burnouts at every stoplight are normal, just make sure you’re driving a Mopar if you’d like to do a burnout too as the police will ticket any car that is doing burnouts that is not.

The entire weekend will be full of events at National Trails Drag Strip.
