Highway 9 - Cincinnati to Interstate 64 Grayson KY


Recommended Posts

  • Alie&Jim's Carrilite changed the title to Highway 9 - Cincinnati to Interstate 64 Grayson KY

Easy ride.  You should have no problems except for the usual Cincy traffic and the oftentimes congestion around Lexington.  There's a decent climb going south on I-75 on the KY side just as you cross the Ohio River coming out of the city.  If you've got power, don't get stuck in the far right climbing lane or you might get trapped by faster traffic.

I'm sure @rickeieiowill be able to offer another perspective.

Thanks,

The old M-11 we have is finicky... if we're on a long climb and have 55+mph momentum rolling, we can usually run up without issue....

BUT.....

If I have to slow and drop out of 10th gear and try to accelerate back to speed..... I'm screwed and in the slow lane with the rest to the top.  Kinda like if the hamster wheel is spun up, don't slow it.....

Rt. 9 is my back yard.  Four lane, easy grades.  What way are you coming into Cincinnati?  You'll likely not even be travelling that grade on I-75 spindrift mentioned.  I haven't gone up it in 25 years.

EDIT:  Rt. 9 is 4 lanes to just east of Maysville, KY, then narrows to 2 lanes which is still very good road.  Running Rt. 9 won't save you a lot of time or miles, but is a more scenic drive.  I would go that way.

When are you passing through?  If we're around, you're welcome to overnight at our shop.  Water and electric, dump too if you have a macerator.

We'll come into Cincinnati on I-74 from the north.  Looks like we'll run around the south side on 275, and pick up 9 at Wilder.

Where are you located on Rt 9?  I'm leaving Northern Indiana Saturday morning by 8, and will run interstate all the way to Cincinnati.  We need to be south of Greensboro NC Sunday by 2-3ish, want to be parked by dark.

PM me if you want, or 252-327-zero five three one

I'm actually in Indiana, but frequently explore the twisty roads of Ky. on my motorbike. My shop is 1/2 mile from exit 21 , Kilby Rd., on I-275.  I live 2 mles off Indiana 1 just north of Lawrenceburg.  By taking Rt. 1 at the St. Leon exit, you shave about 14 miles off to get to the only Indiana exit on I-275.  Signs say tight and twisty, trucks beware, blah, blah.....  Some locals didn't like the truck traffic so got the state to put up signs.  We run it all the time, and I used to take 18' wide farm equipment through there.

I'll call you.
