What size is the Gixxer Albie?
No matter the size though, them things are fun.
Any of y'all ever have Thanksgiving dinner at the Mount Magazine Lodge? Looking for traditional type dinner in a nice setting. Thanks.
They serve gumbo and boudin at Mt. Magazine?
This Eureka Springs thing might work out well. Looking good so far.....
Mag Mtn is nice to stay at, but the meals in the lodge are "average" at best..you wont be too impressed, UNLESS they have plans to have a full service dinner crew working then, but I wouldnt count on it...I think you might find a better deal in Eureka Springs
So.... Is there a lot of good dirt riding up in NWA? How bad are the winters...do you have to winterize the bikes and wait till spring, or can you get out often enough to not bother?
You won't like it. Miles and miles of dirt roads. Twisty, undulating paved roads. Mom & Pop eateries everywhere you look.
It ain't safe. There's Docs and Albies and Tedleys and Dizzer Charliez and banjos and...
You paint a picture that is right on.
Thank you Sir, I appreciate that. I am impressed ,,,,,,but kinda confused. You don't seem to be anything like your "friends" describe you. Hmmm!
You did notice that he's trying to get you to Eureka Springs didn't you? Probably for "Diversity Weekend" no less.
You might peek at Arkansas ride reports to get an idea of our dirt...Here.
I winterize my bike:
1. Plug in heated vest
2. Turn on heated grips.
Seriously, we have a day here or there all winter long that you can sneak in a ride.
Temp doesn't scare me off much, but black ice and roads covered in sand and other crud aren't my favorite. As much as I love dirt, I put more miles on the GS.
Weighing a job in the area against some other possibilities, and I've never been anywhere in AR other than passing through Little Rock (which I didn't care for much). NWA seems like it would be decent for outdoor activities. I just didn't know if it included any public use dirt road/trails. Something more made for a thumper.
them fawking liars!
oH my good man..you would be in for a treat..but keep it under your hat and check out the arkansas ride report thread in this section!
hey albie and Toddy bear..I found me a sprocket for the harley, $50
OJ I lived in CA when the CHP got their first BMW's like yours to replace the Kawasakis they rode for eternity. I remember the first time I saw one, I was oh man that guy has an awesome job. I commuted on my bike back then, before I lost my nuts. I don't remember the numbers but I remember the initial deal was sweet for the CHP. They got them cheap and BMW would buy them back after some amount of miles/time. Great field testing and advertising for BMW.
