Dodging the Roadkill: Madison Indiana

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyMadison, IN – I recently took a weekend trip to ride a few of Kentucky’s motorcycle routes.  The routes I chose, began in Madison, Indiana, so that’s where I set up camp.

Madison Indiana is the county seat of Jefferson County Indiana.  This beautiful city sits along the Ohio River.  It’s population is just over 12,000 people.  Madison is one of the core cities of the Louisville-Elizabethtown-Madison Metroplex, which estimates a population of 1.5 million, according to Wikipedia.  In 2006, the majority of Madison’s downtown was designated the largest contiguous National Historic Landmark in the United States.

It’s historic downtown district is amazing.
