I figured you were medicated and in too much pain Charlie sorry.

Kind of a spur of the moment type deal, we went so slow you would have been bored out of your gord anyway.
You know its bad when I cant keep up with Magoo in the gravel..

Howdy Doc, I was lost, just following Magoo, but I am pretty sure that we did go down it.

it was FUN, we bypassed about 80 yards right past the ledge in the pic, there were two rockcrawler rigs coming up, thankfully magoo saw them and diverted to trail, or we would have been down in that trench trying to turn bikes around.

I was really not at all impressed with the cafe food... I was all excited initially, thinking that we were going to end up at that buffet where 10cup always shows the pics... its in chester or winslow or somewhere else..

Ill probably eat some crackers , and a tuna pouch the next time I end up in natural dam


a few more pics

Yeah Doc, we went down Pannell Rd, ate at Natural Dam, then went up Freedom/Bunyard road up over the Hopper Tunnel. Charlie, the last place you need to be is to be stoned on Pannell Road! I didn't ask, I didn't want to tempt you. Plus, I am afraid of Martha.



I posted my report in ride reports....Matt is a damn good rider with that big hog....I was holding him up on the rough stuff big time.

Merry Christmas and may everyone be stone free by New Years.

Happy Chenukah to Matt. Cheap as he is I think he is Jewish.

Most of that stuff, is either used by the person that owns it, or broken beyond use.

tire irons are under $20 a set for cheapies ( what I own)
pump is $10 at walmart ( for a SLOW one), $25 at harbor freight for a better ( bigger heavier) one.

a patch kit is like $2.99 at walmart, for the little cheapy slime kit, or $10 for one with gummy work plugs and the tools too.


garage sales would likely be a good source for some of these things, but it might take a long time to collect enough of a set to be useful as a stand alone package.

instead of paying $$35 for a local shop to mount your tires, spend that $35 and equip yourself.

Its worked for me, although, my elbows and knees wish Id spend the $35 sometimes.

Before I sign off for good let me throw out there you can get good brand patches at the local bike (bicycle) shops. I get the German Revo's at High Roller, and Lewis and Clarke carry some others. Carry a lighter too, if you don't won't to wait 30 minutes to get a good bond, particularly in cool weather. My new Topeak Joe Blow Mountain floor pump makes quick work of inflating a motorcycle tire. Can't carry on bike, but great in garage. Got mine online for $32. I carry a frame mount bicycle hand pump on the bike but would like to get a cheap cigarette lighter plug in type one. I have the lighter plug on the bike already for the GPS.


Catch you fellas later.

I did hear a lot of sliding gravel behind me as we approached a couple of those ledgy-places.

haha yeah, it scares the crap out of me to have both brakes locked and still be sliding... trying to balance, knowing I have to turn or stop SOON.

its why I ride slow.



I had fun today man, thanks for letting me tag along.

I got my hockey puck remounted a bit ago even!

mdawg wanted the GPS file, so I just posted a link to it on Arkansas Ride Reports. In my answer, I also include a video that apostle2 posted of going down in during SLAP 2010. They dropped off the ledge no problem (2:00 on the video), but that clay V-shaped trench (3:00) we went around sure looks deeper now (or in real life).

I saw a reference a year or so ago to part of that road being graded.

that video looks to be pre graded condition?

In the video, the initial part of the road looks worse, but the ledge and further down looks better than they did today.

that Jeep XJ ( with the snorkel), and other crawler were barely visible from 20 feet away on the side, since they were down in that trench, it must have been 6+ feet deep?

or maybe its all camera perspective, nothing ever really looks scary on video.
