    YES! That is the trip we are talking about taking next summer - 6th in our "See America Tours". Although we were talking about maybe doing the Wisconsin/Minnesota/Upper Michigan next. But Route 66 has been in the plans for a while.

    they did me real well on my smaller bikes, the xt225, and dr350.

    Hopefully they do as well on a slightly larger bike.

    If I could fit a rear on my GS I would honestly probably try one.

    I was made aware by Gus on our last ride that my brake light was not working so I fixed it this morning along with finishing my sub frame repair.

    An oil change and new filters this afternoon and I'm ready to ride. Anyone want to venture out this weekend (weather allowing)?

    I might be able to get away some this weekend, if I can make some headway the rest of this week.

    I'd like to tag along. When and where - give me time to come from Siloam without having to travel in the dark either way.

    I've got a route out and back to the Burger Barn. Meet at Combs Store at 9:15 AM Sunday, kickstands up at 9:30 am. Route is mostly gravel and county roads from Combs.

    Puts me leaving around 7:30... Just saw weather report - chilly! Top off gas at Combs? 60 miles over there and I figure about 100 mi range on the DRZ (stock tank). Have to round up cold weather dirt riding gear.

    Coming out on Hwy 16 so that would be out of the way. Should be able to remember how to get to Combs, unless they have moved it. :evil.

    Could meet up in Elkins though.
