Them other fuckers ain't got maps, or what?

I would need to know by Thur am, I will probably go to WV and camp Thur night and just arrive at the rally straight from there Fri pm.

I figure as long as there are no holes,it's good.

Why did you put the chain on backwards?

Wow, that's total noob mistake

I remember when you did that once Whitey and the darn bike almost flipped over on top of you.

Which was so weird because you hadn't started the bike yet.

Man, you almost had me there. If buildit hadn't piled on, I'd have been searching the Internet to double-check myself.

I'll be home from the station around 0900. Hopefully I'll have a better idea then.

Hey guys, I'm looking to find a route back from the KTM rally in a couple weeks; planning on heading south to Taos first (from Steamboat), then back to Columbus from there over two days. Was thinking it would be cool to slide through the Ozarks on the way back, maybe take US412 back through Enid and Tulsa and on that way... any suggestions?

I was in Cuba, Missouri a few years back for a Spyder rally. I rode Missouri State Route 19 down to Mammoth Springs, Arkansas to eat at Fred's Fish House, which was featured on Anthony Bourdain's show, No Reservations. The route runs through state parks and national forests. There's also several natural springs in the area, where you can be amazed at the volume of water gushing out of the ground.

64 from chama all the way through taos to cimmaron is a great road. One of the most fun roads i took out west. East of Cimmaron it straightens out and I doubt you'll find curves till eastern oklahoma.

I don't really want to do the rally ride but could be interested in tagging along for your exploring. I'm not an expert on the Moonville area but been through it a few times so let me know if it works out for you to split off on your own and I maybe able show.
