Aw c'mon man! Whars your sense of "adventure" and bravery?

As for the road you are seeking, that would be hwy 23 or the Pig Trail..its ok and usually a fave with all the "pirate posers"...we have a few more roads that are probably just as scenic and curvy..am sure we can make you happy..just south of Branson and going west from hwy 65 is hwy 86..put that one on your list to ride..

Do you have a set plan on where you are going or you just want some ideas to explore? What are the boundries? east and west to north and south? Oklahoma state line going back east? North of I-40 in AR but south of I-44 in MO? Am sure we can help ya..let us know what you are looking for..fave's or quiet routes?

Looks like he finally found a ride that won't gather dust sitting. He must like this one, More his style or the ladies like it better then his Hog or Beemer.

I live just a few miles from The Lake of the Ozarks. Something that the locals know and the tourists don't is that there are several drownings on the lake every year. I just got to wondering with the high number of cruisers on your curvy roads every weekend are there a high number of accidents every weekend when it's nice? Deaths?

Well I am back in NWA, but don't want to head home to unhook the trailer home until the temp drops enough that I can go in thehouse and crank the AC with thoughts about what it is costing. Albie if you need the trailer to haul bike just let me know.

Just reread my post I can see where you might have thought I was.
Plus Lukasm showed in a thread that the KAwasaki twin 650 would not fit, much less a GSXR.
Ahh gotcha, that Yammy motor on the other hand ought to be bullet proof.

Well, the insurance companies seem to think so. My motorcycle insurance doubled when I moved from TX to AR and the reason i was told was because of all the crashing.

Lots, and many more accidents. Magoo had several try to run over him in the twisty's west Eureka leaving my house the other day.

If he would move that scoot a little faster he should be passing them instead of them running him over in those corners. Hows the meds and recliner going Magoo? Gets tiring doesn't it?

Those rates only apply to Texans moving here 'cause they freak on hills OR curves, and nearly stop when both occur at the same time.

No meds for me. The pain tells me when I do something wrong. Started rehab exercises today, nice to move more!
I was in the truck (no scooting) and the pirate posers were coming AT me (in my lane) with those deer-in-the-headlight looks. Helps repair our gene pool some.
