Were you sober when you went thru Indy ?

I only ask because I-75 is maybe 200 mile from Indy??

Now if you might of been on I-65 I would agree it a bit rough. And does go thru Indy.

Blurry vision is a factor at times ?

Had these installed at the Goshen Rally.

Made a big difference.........but nothing will make bumpy roads smooth.

I've always wondered what a road made up of ground up orange barrels would be like........

I meant to say I-70. I live near the intersection of the two and am on them all the time and for some reason had 75 on the brain.

I-80 Road Bumpy - what to do??

I figured you intended I-65. But I-70 right there to. Lol. Fingers don't always type what our head tells them to.

On concrete I find that adjusting my vehicle's speed usually resolves the issue. Unfortunately, on my truck and the concrete around here, the magic number is79 mph and faster.

Good think I have LT tires. Speed police, please keep your comments to yourself.

It seems every road will have a different magic number for every different vehicle. Western I-80 is 57 and 71 for the vehicle I had at the time. Still searching for the number(s) on I-95 N in FL

I-75 North to Goshen

I discovered a route when traveling I-75 to Cincinnati and on to Goshen Via I-74. At exit 113 on I-74, take state road 9 north to I-69 North.

This will keep you out of Indianapolis and will cut off distance. The highway
9 is a pretty good smooth two lane road. This will cut off approximately 25
miles.

Birmingham WOW

Roger 2650 is right about Birmingham, Will knock your fillings out. I was born, raised there. Left the backwards part of the state in 1958. Was there last October just traveling through. Could not believe the decay of the city and roads.
