    Took the kids and wife out riding yesterday. muddy. Took a lot of washing when we got home. Every time i get on the gas the bike went all over the place. But it was fun. Really need a bigger bike for my boys. there out growing there 110s and need something bigger.

    Might have a 110 for sale soon if any of you guys are looking for something a little bigger for your little ones. Just foot shift. No clutch. There fun to ride around

    Hey guys - I hate to be gone all this time and then need to come back for help but stuff happens.

    My nephew and his wife went to Horseshoe Bend this weekend and the dog kennel lost their family dog! If you know anyone in the area or will be in the area at all, can you keep an eye out?? Here are a couple pics of Chewie (the little dog in the pics). These folks are originally from Conway, but my nephew took a job promotion in MS. They were back visiting and this happened. I know I'd be devastated and ready to wring someone's neck over this...but my bigger deal would still be getting my beloved pet (family member) back. This dog has a whole family who loves and fawns over him.

    He slipped out of his collar so he doesn't have a contact number on him. He was at a place called Dog Me off HWY 289 in Horse Shoe bend.

    They are up there now looking, but even if they have to go back, I'd go get him myself if he is found. Thank you so much for any help you can give.

    PS I haven't been ignoring you, I am close to graduating and have been busier than a whore during shore leave.

    What is the situation with sales tax when you buy a new bike in OK, but live in AR?
    Do you pay sales tax in both states, neither, get a pass in OK and pay in AR when you tag? :ear

    Thanks Doc. This dog has been pretty well cared for and loved. These two have been together for as long as Scott and I have and Scott did their wedding ceremony. They have two beautiful kids and have always worked so hard and done well for themselves as a young couple. I would absolutely hate to see them have to go through this because the boarding facility was incompetent. Melissa has been a mess this morning. I'm doing what I can do from here, including getting the word out in as many places as possible. She feels terribly guilty for putting him in a boarding facility now. It is not her fault, they couldn't have known the folks there couldn't care for a dog.

    Just pay taxes in AR, you should get an MSO from the dealer which you surrender to the Revenue Office where you pay the sales tax, you pick up your tags, and then they will send you the title.

    Been looking at different size fuel tanks. I think my stock one is 2.8 gallons. I have seen a 3.8 up to 5.8 gallons. What do you guys think is a good size?

    Personally, I'd pick the one that says Acerbis. IMS tanks suck, Clarke are just a little bit better.

    I found a Acerbis tank that is 5.8 gallons. Think that is over kill? i am all about over kill but its with different things, not dirt bikes. I am used to the extra weight when riding as my boy loves to ride in front of me when we are out in the dirt. 5.8 gallons just seems like a big gas tank

    5.8 gallons is damn near 50lbs. of weight sloshing around. :huh

    Albie thanks for the info. It will be a while before I can buy new, but the small towns in OK have better prices than the local dealers on the bikes I like.:evil

    What kind of trips do you want to be prepared for? Way out west, I can see needing plenty of range. My WR gives me a range of a paltry 120 miles on 2 gallons. I can carry full sweet cheeks (2L) and a RotoPax (1 gal), which brings me to 200. In Arkansas I have yet to go on a route where I wasn't able to gas up somewhere (although route planning can alter that). In Colorado, that was a different story. I needed that 200 mile range.

    I opted to keep the smaller tank because it suits me +90% of the time. Personal choice time.

    You can put 3.8 gallons in a 5.8 tank, but you can't put 5.8 gallons in a 3.8 tank. I had a KLR 650 which had a large tank and I very seldom filled it full. Just a thought.

    Very good point. Most of the riding i think the stock tank would be fine. But i would like to be able to go on longer ones and not worrie about where the next gas station is. Someday it would be fun to go on a couple day trip.
