Yay, cold weather

So I avoided the whole BB&B deal- don't have anything against it, just not a fan of large crowds. I did finally get my heated grips put on the bike though which have made my mornings much more tolerable. I still can't figure out how I see these guys in the mornings not even wearing gloves- I'm just not that tough.

I do keep seeing a guy on a blue sport tourer on my way in on Hwy 102- BMW I think? Think I saw an ADV sticker on his side case- didn't know if that was one of you gents or not.

Had a good time getting away from BBBQ over at Erbie.











Talked to a few ADVriders Saturday afternoon as they came into Erbie from Compton, along the Erbie-Compton Road, CR-19.

It looks better on the map than it is in person! I guess that weren't expecting that long, muddy downhill section!

We were on our horses and heading to the Cecil Creek trailhead, so I didn't take time to ask names. Anyone here?

Someone on a Versys cruised the horse camp on Sunday Morning.

Did about seven miles of riding on Saturday afternoon. Seventeen miles on Sunday.

The roads were clear of pirates by the time we departed Erbie at 7pm last night...

What a long great week/weekend. We rode around everyday and had a hoot. Had a blast with RJHarris and Red Bud.

I gotta give props to Doc and ADV Twitter. We were in Rogers Friday afternoon and I got a voicemail, it was Red Bud and as he was riding here from Memphis his bike quit on him near Fallsville/Oark. He had no cell service and had been riding in rain most of the way. Luckily 3 guys came past and helped him, and let him use their phone to call me. My phone battery was just about dead so I had time to type in a tweet and the phone number and for Doc to see what he could do, it worked great! Thanks for calling him Doc.

Anyway, turns out he had lost his fuel cap vent hose, so when he was riding in the rain it filled his gas with water! He drained all of it out and the people gave him a few cups of gas and he was on his way.

He left yesterday at about noon and headed back for Memphis, poor guy got hammered by rain the whole way it looked like! Sounds like he had a very long day in the saddle.

There used to be. All the off-road trails I know close to Shores Lake are now posted with NO MOTORIZED ACCESS and "ROAD CLOSED" signs. Used to love riding Hurricane Creek North from Shores Lake.

Define "around Shores Lake". How close do you require?

I'm specifically thinking about the upcoming campout at Shores Lake. I was thinking about bringing my boy along and riding some trails with him.

Thx...nlp

We talked about you....and after trashing you, talking bad about your KawaZuki, and wondering how that lovely woman keeps you around, we remembered your post that you didn't have that long to ride:

We are so sorry!! We shoulda figured that your response to O'Jay was really code for "Why the heck would I want to ride with you, O'Jay?".
Next time we'll know.

No problem. I turned down O'Jay's offer cause it would have been 135 miles one-way by slab to get to Rockbridge Mill, MO on the other side of Branson Mo.

At least now I know it wasn't my deodorant (or lack thereof) .

Fellow ADVers, an invite and heads-up! A group of perhaps 9 or so riders will be on a 3 day adventure in NW AR this Fri - Sun (Oct 5,6,7). This is a "dualsport" although the routes will include sections of ATV trail and other gnarly bits.

You can read the evil plan and see the routes here.
http://www.rideforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1560

If any of you want to join us for the adventure in your backyard or maybe just a day, let me know!

-Troy
Three days notice?

OK..well "close" is relative. The easy answer is to head up to the Mill Creek ATV system. Google thinks it will take over an hour from Shores Lake, but that's not true. I (and others here) can build you a route that will get you there a bit more directly by hitting some old roads (fun!) on the way to the system.

I don't think you'd need to worry about being tagged to ride up there from Shores Lake...but technically, I suppose you could get in trouble. While its rare to see law enforcement in the area, you'll see them more around Shores Lake and up to White Rock than further North.
