I'm still trying to figure out how a 250 can do 178 mph. I must be reading that thing wrong.

Garmin has a problem when they don't have continuity with satellite reception and when it does hook back up thinks you have gone farther than you have and thus the big MPH. Funny deal. All the other data is correct though.

Great to hear Seth is liking the idea of a ride report. Hope he enjoys it. I know we'll love hearing from him.

Nice report 10Cup,
I was expecting to see some familiar things on the route back.
IF the creek is the one I'm thinking of, its only 6"s deep or so and rock bottom.

One note on the Swinging Bridge you found.
There is one old couple that down the trail from that bridge and their kids built it years ago so they could get out when the creek is up. Technically it is private property. But still its neat.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the info

Yes we saw the homestead across from the bridge and figured it might be something to do with that. The river was a little deeper than 6" when we were there I think and very wide. Looked like another double dipper too. Anyway we did make it around and back to Oark. Fun day but long.

Thanks for the info.

The Homestead is by the swinging bridge.
I thought you found the creek crossing coming down to Springfield.
There is one section of road that the county barely maintains. The kids like it when I hit the creek fast and throw water everywhere.

Sure, why not?

Boognish and I, through a few text messages late Monday decide to take a much need ride on Tuesday. So I read in the ES Hillbilly thread about some Possum road just off of highway 16. So we decided to start there and ride south. Nice start with nice scenery and then a promising "turn off" just after a national forest boundary sign. No barricades or evil signs. Right- move forward.

Nice and easy slope up until we noticed a flagged trail crossing our path. We thought, this is great, this looks like part of the White Rock Enduro track. ..............Sweet, lets see where it goes.

I think I only laid the bike over 5 times, only bent one side of my hand gaurds, only bent one hand lever, and of course my shifter and rear brake lever in about a mile. Although, everything was just simply bent back into place and just maybe in a little better position.

Never go riding tight single track with the guy on a 350lb bike.

Here's a short video report---

HB cool ride.
The X is actually a stable steed. I know that Gunslinger1 loves his. He's not afraid to tackle much on it.

Put in a few work hours this morning and then hit the road for the Ozark NF. I realize this report doesn't involve motorcycles but give me time...

Album

She thinks I'm lost...


I can't be lost, I have a GPS thingy-ma-bobber.


I'm not sure what this lookout (A on map) but it was beautiful.


We circle back to Haw Creek Falls (E on the map) and run into a couple of Advrider members, who browse but don't post. They mention a 2nd waterfall, on the SE side of the Haw Creek Campground. This tidbit of info, was gold. It was a great hike up a creek to a beautiful 25'(aprox) waterfall. Truly blessed to live in AR and be able to spend the day with my family... nlp
