    A friend of mine routinely gets 140-160 from his 4 gal tank. Got to be something wrong if it only took two gals to fill. Or you got hoodwinked about the tank. A four gal tank should be more than obvious though.

    I will take the tank off and drain it so I can check the filter. Will fill it from empty to see exactly how much fuel it will hold. My back feels a little better today. Still no pond bank jumping for awhile. You guys that get to ride today have fun and be safe. Thanks for the info, Njoythecouch

    Good luck with the back, sure can cramp your style. And never really goes away. Welcome to the sr world.

    Need some help please. I am about to buy a new enduro/HS bike and am interested in a Beta. I need to know if any of you have info on the dealers in FT Smith and Heber Springs. I do not mean to start a controversial thread, just asking for some local knowledge. Or should I look elsewhere, thanks.

    Used to be Smackover Motorsports was the dealer to go to for Beta's and Gas Gas's but they closed the doors a couple years ago. Don't know anything about those two dealers.

    Couple of us okies are riding the TAT right now and tomorrow we are planning to set up camp near the buffalo river area or a bit further east. Any recommendation on a proper place to tent camp? Warm shower would super nice!
    Thanks

    Anyone close to Rogers that might have some spare garage space to hold a bike for a couple of days? My BMW is following me up on a trailer, but I don't have anywhere to put it when I get up to the area. I still need to secure housing, so will have to motel it for a few days, and don't really want to leave it and my gear in the parking lot. Alternatively, I suppose I can rent a storage unit for a month, but I know some of them are funny about vehicles in them.
