Friday afternoon, around 4:45pm, black KLR, new style, 2-up, going from Old Agency to Trace to old craft center/rice road. Had a nice set of small panniers. I was behind you for the route above but kept going on Trace.

But it was mighty fun getting it there.

Big difference b/t falling apart on it's own and being destroyed by the rider. But nice try.

Oark, AR: Oark General Store, yesterday (Saturday) May 7...

Group of about 5 dual sporters. I stopped to chat with you. You had left from Clarksville, AR that morning and were riding north.

Their "Fearless Leader" was on a 650L and had a AVR sticker on the headlight number area.

Question Curious

Yes, it was me on TX 19 coming out of Trinity this evening. Yes, that was my wife on the back overheating. Yes, her helmet was strapped to the back of the bike.

I continued on 19 and you turned off at 30 into Huntsville. Couldn't help but notice you checked us out from all sides. I'm not always anti-social, but I knew we'd be gett'n home 'round sunset and I was worried about the bailing wire and electrical tape hot wiring job I did on the way to grab the TX Tag. That's the second time my ignition has gone haywire while play'n Tag.

Anyway, if you're round these parts ... introduce yourself.

Spotted - BMW 450 or 650 in Manhattan Kansas and I think the tag was from Arizona.

I passed what I think is the same guy on the Trace. he was heading east between I-55 and Old Canton and I was going West... No wave, no eye contact... Looked like a right new and shiny bike. Maybe a new rider.

Yeah, that screenshot was right before they exited onto the trace. I'm liking the helmet cam. Haven't caught much on it yet, but out of about 20 hours of video I could probably put together a good compilation of cars trying to merge into me.
