BigDog/HighFive--Fall Colors In Missouri
I've been making my annual pilgrimage to Potosi, Missouri to the Falling Leaf BMW rally for I don't know
how many years-------20 or more ???? I rode BMW's for probably 15 years but that was way before BigDogAdventures.
This time would be very different---as I met up with a friend Scott Williams from Oklahoma----he's better known as
"HighFive On AdvRider". And we would leave the rally and poke around Southern Missouri for the weekend looking at the scenery, finding some springs and run across so much interesting stuff.
Here is me and Scott---Scott's on his one year old BMW 800GS which he bought at the rally last year.
It's so funny---he took it for a 3 hour test ride and when he came back the dealer said "well I guess you know you bought that bike" !!! He replied with "I guess you know you just traded for a KLR" ????? Pretty funny sale I thought.
I was on my 2005 KTM 950 Adventure which I bought new in 2005.
Stay tuned as me and Scott tell of our travels for the weekend as we stopped a lot to
"Smell The Roses"

Why in the heck did you buy a 250 ?? "Because they were all out of 175's"
