    That tail light-plate setup is the first thing to be modded, as you have now found out.

    Can someone recommend a good 1 day canoe float. I'll be back up there Monday. The outfitters say upper Buffalo is too low right now. Someone recommended Kings River.

    Might try around Buffalo Point (south of Yellville) area on the Buffalo. It will have to be pretty far down stream based on reports I've heard. The Kings looked pretty low when I crossed it yesterday. Mulberry is a no-go too.

    We need some rain for floatin'

    Right now you need to look at areas below dams. Below DeGray there is a release every afternoon. Same thing below Catherine.
    From below the holding dam below DeGray to Hwy 67 is about as easy a float as there is.

    Ended up taking off the fender and bolting the plate straight onto what was left. I was very pleasantly surprised to find out a replacement plate is $1 to the dot (DMV time aside).

    Did a little riding this morning near Lake Sylvia
    They just graded the roads - lots of large, loose rocks but it was peaceful

    Was shocked about the accusations about Tom Murry, former owner of the Kaw/KTM dealer in LIT. It was on channel 7.
    Tom's been a big supporter of MX for decades. I hope these charges are false. He seemed like a good guy.

    So, what are the accusations for those that don't watch television?

    Regarding Tom, either way - not good.

    Ride safe - I'm hitting Tram Road area in the morning on the FE350 around 930am with a friend to ride some power lines and dirt!

    Took the RS out this morning for about a 100 mile loop before it got too hot. Will take the Tenere out tomorrow morning for a little longer loop. I'm ready for Autumn already............too soon?

    You dirt riders should come up to the Wilderness Rider Buffalo Ranch, and check it out. 2500 acres of pristine Ozark Mountain trails. Motorized friendly, and one of a kind remote camp sites. Owned by an avid dirt rider and outdoors enthusiast. The park overlooks Boxley Valley in the Buffalo River headwaters region. Come take a ride with me some weekend. If you live in central AR, it is almost in your back yard! Google the ranch, visit the website, check out more pics on my facebook page;

    Looking for dual sport riders to join - my long time riding buddy sold his TW and his DR and bought a MX bike so his riding is limited.

    I mainly ride the Ouachitas entering either at Lake Sylvia or Winona as I live in Little Rock. I ride a TW200 and Husky FE 350.

    I'm sure that's not water, after all, this is August in Arkansas.
