No single track, but I wouldn't be surprised they're ATV tracks.
Some of them are alot worse than single tracks because ATV's really screw up a mud hole, and turn it in a bog.

At 6'2" 250 I don't have a problem picking the pig up. At least for the first half of the day that is. Any more than that and I will have to camp next to the last place the KLR fell last. I may need to put a few beers in the tool tube in case of emergency.

That's why I ride in a gang.....I mean group. You (almost) can never have too many folks helping right a KLR

I'm looking for the same thing with some dirt also on my KLX 250, and this is my first big group event so let me know if you find a leader with the same interests.

ILwop,

Just ask around, you will find someone with the same abilities to pal up with. It's very informal. If you want to hook up with a ride leader I am sure Doc will be doing a ride or two. Just come and enjoy, it'll all work out for you.

You like your KLR in one piece?
How about a nice little 40 miler that takes 7 hours to ride it without taking pictures?

I'm not getting into anything serious (I hope) I'll have my son with me. Most likely on his DT125, unless I decide to ride XTique and put him on the 350
even then he is not upto the challenge of the stuff I will dive off into.

That sounds like too much fun! I get tarred if I have to pick up pigboat too many times in a day. I do have my 14/45 sprockets on so it'll go fairly slow in low gear :-)

WR to Eureka Springs Pt 1

You can use this along with the ES_Washburn track for a near 300 miler if you feel the need.

This is a pretty easy road ride on county and forestry roads..big bike friendly thru AR and MO

Gas and food along the way in Huntsville AR, Eureka Springs AR, Siligman MO, Washburn MO, Pineville MO and on the sate line on hwy 71.

The WR to ES is 80 miles one way..easy roads!

The ES_Washburn is abt 96 mile loop that ends in Siligman MO, just follow your track back to ES then to WR, or take the pavement back.

ES_Washburn gpx in Pt 2 below

BBQ Run

I will have a group that likes good BBQ and can ride 147 mile loop from White Rock. We'll head East through Winslow and over the Bobby Hopper Tunnel then wind back up NE toward Lincoln where we will take a break and get fuel. Then it's South toward Natural Dam then on to Cedarville for BBQ at the Ima Jerk BBQ for a late lunch.



After that we'll head on back toward White Rock with full bellies and get in early enough to relax and have some beers before the chow is served.

This route is be big bike friendly, we will not be riding Warloop or Pannell roads. Those that do are on their own baby.

We like to keep the groups to no more than about six riders otherwise it gets pretty cumbersome.

See ya there. Route is attached. I'll post the track file next
