Coming out on Hwy 16 so that would be out of the way. Should be able to remember how to get to Combs, unless they have moved it. .

Could meet up in Elkins though.

Rent a surf board when you get there, it will look even cooler shooting under the pier with your go pro on.

Can't wait to stand on the Santa Monica pier and look out on the ocean.

I have the 17 inch Michelin T-63 on my rear tire. Got mine at Motorcycle Superstore. As for a 17' inch front, I don't know about that, mine is a 21.

I did not see any tracks available at that link. We might cross paths on Sunday. I'll be leading 8 riders up from Clarksville to Fayetteville this Sun. We'll go right by the Burger Barn, but it will be morning. We'll turn E off Hwy 21 at the Burger Barn for a bit then head N on Switchback road up to Bud Pearson's cabin then head back NW to Hwy 21 on Co 5550. We'll be stopping for gas and possibly food in Oark.

Here is the info on our 3 day ride. You guys are welcome!

Here is Sunday's route plan (we'll add in more good stuff if time allows):

No fuel in Ozone. Oark is on the way and has fuel. If you are coming down 16 fill in Elkins and you should make it to Oark.
