Very fast and challenging sections of the ~100 mile ride today.
If it would have rained much more before 10 am it could have been a disaster. I am glad we got an early start!
Started steady light rain on our way to Crosses for lunch... We had decided to take the back roads to Fayetteville while we were eating. When we finished lunch it was pouring rain
We put on the rain gear and slabbed it back to Fayetteville on HWY 16.
Hey Doc.... wish you could have gotten wet with us today
Great Riding with you Bob
Sorry but only got a couple of pictures to share.

Earl kept telling me about some ill-fated GS ride out there, and frankly I would not want to be on a big bigger than a 610 on that track, but we made it, problemo.
Crappy cell-phone shot of Earl making quick work of the same hill where a bunch of GS's got hung up this summer, or so he told me. I got to get my good camera out there, the area is beautiful.
We hit the falls, nice area.
It was actually a nice day. The light rain kept the dust down and the riff-raff at home, so we had the woods almost to ourselves. We even took a shot at some of the OHV trails over on Mills Creek. That was a mistake.
That red clay had already turned to snot, and it was only going to get worse. So we high tailed it out of there, had some lunch and cruised Highway 16 home in a cold rain. All in all, a very good day.
