    Ha!

    I've marked-off for this coming Monday. Going to hit the OK/AR mountains again. Honey Buns surprised me by wanting to go, too. :huh

    The general store at Bates is open again... so we'll be dining on some good burgers or whatever!

    Eat your hearts out, all ye that have to work Monday. :lol3

    BTW:

    Honey Buns n' me and the dirt bikes are going back to Colorado the first week of September. This time we're going to base out of Silverton. The Alpine Loop is on the "definite maybe" list, along with some other stuff we're familar with.

    We've also marked off for the last full week of October. Planning on dual sporting (and maybe an overnighter on the HD) the Ozark and Ouachita mountains all week long.

    Can't wait!!!

    I sold the WR250X today, to a young guy down in Benton. Him and his buddy got tied up in the I40 wreck traffic and after getting turned around they showed up to pick up bike, 3 hours late. I rode the bike to work and had to have my lovely wife come pick me up. I'll miss that bike, for sure but I just can't stand to see it sitting in my shop, day in and day out.

    I'll probably be selling my boy's XR70, pretty soon and hopefully find a super cheap hard to start Honda XR. :D

    Vinduroman the Alpine Loop rocks! Fairly easy, I don't think the wife will have any problems. I may be out there again around the same time, we will have to hang out a day or two!

    Hi TC!

    Yup... we've done the Alpine Loop several times in rented Jeeps and our own 4WD... but it's been a few years and I NEVER thought we'd be riding bikes over it... so sort of trying to remember if there would be any "OH NO!" sections for her.

    Why heck yeah... if you two are out there the same time as we are... we'll HAVE to meet up. At the very least, we can go eat at Handlebars or the Brown Bear!

    Cornbread, ALBIE.

    working on the square today, kept smelling good things from Brick house Cafe.

    finally stopped in about 11 to ask what the special was.

    pinto beans, with local bacon, and cabbage, and cornbread

    it was delicious.

    this cornbread was crunchy, like stone ground, yellow and blue cornmeals, but it was light and fluffy like cake , but NOT sweet, may have been a hint of chili powder in it.

    it was good, I should have taken a picture but I was too busy eating.

    I like sweet cornbread. Don't enjoy dry cornbread, neither.

    Good cornbread is really good eating with beans n' taters and also crumbled up in milk!

    yeah I jump around, some times I ll put some sugar in it, sometimes not.

    same with biscuits.

    this cornbread was easily the best texture ive ever eaten, It was moist, much like cake, just not sweet at all, with a good hearty corn meal texture mixed in.

    "Don't fan the covers! Don't fan the covers!"

    :rofl

    Right you are on the slice of white onion!! For a different twist on the beans: We also like to ladel them on to a slice of buttered white bread.

    Ummm... needs to talk Honey Buns into a pot of beans!!

    Riding home from work tonight, first left turn, is a downtown intersection, I was going 20-25 mph.

    heard a grinding scraping noise as I turned.

    looked down, it was dark could not see squat, so i pull over to the side.

    the dang center stand wasnt all the way up, i have never done that before!
    rarely do I even use the center stand, but I had noticed one running light was flickering on the ride to work, so I was running the bike on the centerstand to wiggle the wires ( they only come on when its running)

    maybe I need to add a spring to it or something.
