    Good day of riding the Don't Fall Rally at Lamar, AR. Had a great ride with my brother Marion along with two Louisiana men, Mark & Buddy. Riding in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. Fun group of rider.
    Special thanks to David for allowing the event at your place. IMG_3720.JPG IMG_3725.JPG IMG_3723.JPG IMG_3717.JPG IMG_3720.JPG IMG_3725.JPG IMG_3723.JPG IMG_3717.JPG

    Lone Biker, great ride and a wonderful lunch. It was a pleasure meeting riding with you two. I'm so glad your brother was riding with no face shield and wearing goggles. You two were leaving me and Buddy way behind. Heck, the dust settled by the time we covered your tracks! Finally the cold got to your brother and the pace was relaxed.
    Note to self, never ride with old enduro riders:wave

    Kudos to David and Edwin hosting the Rally. Many thanks!
    I only have a few pics to share.

    Edwins Tigers cost a DR650 spark plug socket. We had to flatten the end so a crescent wrench would grab it. Next we added two vice grips on it to loosen the axle nut.

    Weave mentioned the Low Gap. I'll add an obligatory pic. The place was quite a pleasant surprise. My Ahi tuna.

    And the Catalpa was right up to my expectations. No food orgy pic.

    Notice that leaning tree on top of the arch. DQ is busting his balls holding it up.

    Of course the sunrise pic is required. Adios until next year.

    I think a good time was had by all, all the attending Arkies did anyway.
    Don't know if anyone else went by this spot

    I was exposed to some pretty good riders there. But this is the guy I took my hat off to (on the left). He made me look overweight.

    Had a blast as always and the best part was around the fire listening to stories and jokes. Except my own.

    Thanks for hosting it DQ!

    You are quite the story teller. You may have a new career if the sommelier thing doesn't work out.
