    No single track, but I wouldn't be surprised they're ATV tracks. :deal
    Some of them are alot worse than single tracks because ATV's really screw up a mud hole, and turn it in a bog. :evil

    At 6'2" 250 I don't have a problem picking the pig up. At least for the first half of the day that is. Any more than that and I will have to camp next to the last place the KLR fell last. I may need to put a few beers in the tool tube in case of emergency.

    I'm looking for the same thing with some dirt also on my KLX 250, and this is my first big group event so let me know if you find a leader with the same interests.

    ILwop,

    Just ask around, you will find someone with the same abilities to pal up with. It's very informal. If you want to hook up with a ride leader I am sure Doc will be doing a ride or two. Just come and enjoy, it'll all work out for you.

    You like your KLR in one piece? :evil
    How about a nice little 40 miler that takes 7 hours to ride it without taking pictures? :deal

    I'm not getting into anything serious (I hope) I'll have my son with me. Most likely on his DT125, unless I decide to ride XTique and put him on the 350
    even then he is not upto the challenge of the stuff I will dive off into. :freaky

    That sounds like too much fun! I get tarred if I have to pick up pigboat too many times in a day. I do have my 14/45 sprockets on so it'll go fairly slow in low gear :-)

    You can use this along with the ES_Washburn track for a near 300 miler if you feel the need.

    This is a pretty easy road ride on county and forestry roads..big bike friendly thru AR and MO

    Gas and food along the way in Huntsville AR, Eureka Springs AR, Siligman MO, Washburn MO, Pineville MO and on the sate line on hwy 71.

    The WR to ES is 80 miles one way..easy roads!

    The ES_Washburn is abt 96 mile loop that ends in Siligman MO, just follow your track back to ES then to WR, or take the pavement back.

    ES_Washburn gpx in Pt 2 below

    I will have a group that likes good BBQ and can ride 147 mile loop from White Rock. We'll head East through Winslow and over the Bobby Hopper Tunnel then wind back up NE toward Lincoln where we will take a break and get fuel. Then it's South toward Natural Dam then on to Cedarville for BBQ at the Ima Jerk BBQ for a late lunch.

    After that we'll head on back toward White Rock with full bellies and get in early enough to relax and have some beers before the chow is served.

    This route is be big bike friendly, we will not be riding Warloop or Pannell roads. Those that do are on their own baby.

    We like to keep the groups to no more than about six riders otherwise it gets pretty cumbersome.

    See ya there. Route is attached. I'll post the track file next

    I think i may follow this route if anyone wants to follow me. This route came from 10Cup. 181 miles and it includes Pannell Road. I'm on a KLR 650, and will be going down there with a friend who also rides a KLR 650. I've never done this route before, but I was told the majority is gravel, etc. I'm fairly new to gps and following a route, so it may become a little bit of an adventure at times if we get off track. :cromagI'm just out for a ride to have a good time with and a bit of a challenge too!

    Maybe 10Cup will chime in and dscribe this route a bit.

    Hi Jason,
    You will need to change up that route a bit. Lee creek road will be under deep water so if you want to ride Pannell road you'll have to improvise some to get to it. I have to say though that the rest of the ride will be fun and doable. Personally I wouldn't ride Pannell but that's your call.

    Have a way of getting around Lee Creek rd?

    If Pannell Rd gets too ugly, I suppose we could turn around. But, I like to get myself into something questionable at least once per ride anyways. One of those things you finally make it through and you look back and think "Holy Crap I made it!" Good confiedence booster :D
