    Hello Neighbor!

    Sorry, misunderstanding here. The KLR ridergoing to the HBR is Mike. He lives on the southwest side of OKC. I don't know if he follows ADVrider much but I'll find out. And, I must be colorblind. I thought he rode a green KLR but it is in fact blue. When are you leaving for the Hillbilly? Think we are leaving wednesday after I get off work. Mike is retired so he'll be waiting on me!

    hey vinduroman, how you doing? This is your old riding buddy from Miss, Bob. Marcus, Courtnie, and I have adventure bikes now and are talking about coming to this ride. Maybe some or all of us can make it.
    If not this one lets plan to get together and ride somewhere soon.

    I'm retired also so I can go anytime. Not sure if I'm trailering or riding there. I usually ride but some friends may take their 250's and want to trailer. I'll know more in a week or so. If you want to take a day ride sometime let me know. Several of us went to Eichens Friday and made a day out of it.:clap

    Rocket Rigby!

    What an excellent surprise to see you at the adv forum! Sharon and I have been rocking back n' forth about whether to make the effort to attend The Hillbilly... but if you guys are going to be there: It's ON!

    How's all the clan? Are you going to New England for this year's ISDTRR? At this point, Sharon and I will NOT be going to New England. Instead we're going back to Colorado for some more dual sporting the first week of Sept, and have the fourth week of Oct marked off for some local dual sporting/touring.

    Great hearing from you.

    Good deal, I think there are a few others from OKC and surrounding area heading that way Thursday also. Maybe we can meet up along the way for brunch/lunch with some of them.

    Who is going and when.....:huh Inquiring minds want to know.:D

    Congrats Randy on your retirement, you will love it. More time to work on the Olds. I would like to see it on the road and at some shows.:clap

    Uncle Dave, you can download routes, (gpx) to the Laying Down Tracks section in Advrider then link them to the Hillbilly Dual Sport section. I have some from 2009-2011 if your interested.

    Just talked to the motel, everything is a go from their end. 21 rooms booked so far. 8 were booked in the last couple of days. The last week usually we get 10-15 more if the weather is going to be good Try to join us, the roads/trails will bring a smile to your face. It will be a friendly group so you will fit right in if you come solo or with just one another rider. Motel said the will cook brats for us one night:clap. A fire pit and wood, and 5 bikini clad girls to rub backs & necks for free will be available (not), but at least they will have wood.

    As long as it ain't you in a bikini Uncle Dave, :eek1 I'm there...:lol3 Hope there is room for trailers, we may have a few. Glad they will have a fire, always a hit with the crowd. Long range forecast and brats are looking good..:clap. Now, if you can just make 5 girls in bikinis show up you will become my all time favorite ride coordinator..:evil

    THe KLR hasn't been on a group ride for several years; a good way to break in a new T63.
