You can leave the truck at my house and ride down to the start with me and Linda on Friday, I've got a good route laid out to get there.

Hope to make this

Back in the 90's I had a 94 BMW K1100LT and went to a few rallies. Long time ago. Now I always seem to ride by myself on my only bike, the DR200. I would like to meet you guys and do the ride. I live 15 miles from the state park and the wife said she would bring my truck with fire wood.

OzarkDave in Ozark!

OzarkDave, I had a DR 200 for several years... great bike! Bulletproof like its big brothers the DR350 and 650. Got it because I'm getting on in years and wanted to be able to pick up my bike by myself without wrecking my back.: It could run full throttle all day at 65 mph and play in the mountains with few limitations. Its stock 3-gallon tank is awesome for a bike that gets 90 mpg. I can certify it will be great for the LooseNut, having followed BigDog around while he laid out this year's course.

While waiting for the weather to warm up you may be interested in this video which I shot last month near Tucson. I met some of the nicest guys in dual-sporting while there: Dingweeds, Rhodester, Emerson Biguns and others. Temps were in the 70s everyday and the sun was always shining.... well maybe I shouldn't tell you this! Hope to meet you at LooseNut 2014!
