I'm way ahead of you thump
I sure wish they'd fix that bridge so we can ride that road that crosses Hutchin's creek.

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

Tw200

I sure hope I can find me a good TW200 before this ride.
I'm so sick of riding my bike as hard as I can go----and then look in my mirror and find that "Smalls" guy is right on my ass".
You can't hear it run---and it ain't got no brakes
He's too nice of a guy to pass me and humiliate me in front of everybody.

I thank him for that

BigDog

Thumb ...add me to the growing list...

My 2014 Calendar is marked.
Reservations will be made at the campsite. Sold my '89 NX250;
I'll be on my new (to me) 2009 Yamaha TW200.
The TW's seat is lower to the ground by 3";
I won't have as far to fall to the ground if
I should take a terra firma sample like I did at the PHRB event.
George (Smalls), I'd enjoy riding along with you.
curioussteve and +1, you might want to follow along...if...

Actual original miles...



They're out there; I had more than 6 to choose from within 500 miles. My grandkids live in Grove, OK, so it was an easy decision for me.

Congrats Charles!

Glad to see you got another bike! It definitely speeds up the recovery process to have it there in the garage taunting you

In for sure for 2014...cant wait!

I was just trying to be funny..........you could always take the long way down to Shawnee..........I guess it should be farthest distance traveled - not - farthest from home
