    Wind builds character.....or something.

    Cropear's missing some eyebrow due to riding home from my house in a heavy crosswind and thick, bad fitting sunglasses under his helmet.

    i don't have a problem with adding miles to the oat, if it has a purpose. If there is beauty in the area you want it to go through, you guys are the local experts. build a route and we will run with it, only rule. the crazy sandy bottom, possibly dry, maybe rushing watter crossing stays. fyi when i started this project i lived in clinton.

    Good good. I'll get out in the next few days, hopefully, and check out Dadayama's route. Looks like it'll be good and hot, and I know it'll be windy.
    I'll also take Cropear's advice and report on any convenience store cuties I run into. Don't hold your breath, though.

    Hope the ride goes well. I'm jealous. Since i couldn't go on the ride i decided to make one of my vlog videos about the OAT to promote it. Once i get to ride it i'm going to do another video or two with highlights.

    That's a start, but the video comes to an abrupt end.

    I have a question, do you always talk to us when you ride? :wink:

    Nice Bill!
    I can't wait for your critique of the new Superman movie? Maybe they will let you in for free if you mention you are a movie criticizer.

    Ok, video plays now instead of bombing out after a minute and a half. For whatever reason it wasn't playing earlier today. :1drink
    Nice to hear the thoughts behind the building of the OAT.
    And you are near one section that may need a little work, lot of pavement between Cleveland and where we crossed Hwy 169 north of Nowata. Nice back road pavement really but there were some thoughts that maybe a bit much?

    good bad or ugly, i'm glad to hear some insight into the OAT. Osage county is next door so i will definitely put that on my hit list of things to work on.

    Only if i'm purposely recording a vlog. My channel on youtube is dedicated to motorcycle stuff, and when i don't have anything interesting i've recorded or i have something on my mind i do a vlog.

    I've watched most of your stuff and that was just an observation I had. I talk to people when I ride sometimes, except I'm really glad none of it gets recorded :shog

    Either I missed it or I have forgotten, do you detail anywhere your voice recording setup?

    Is anyone in south eastern oklahoma that can help with a reroute? The group that went out over the weekend ran into a closed gate. Needing to know some options. Anyone know if the k trail is open? I've heard that one half is easily passable, but the other half is pretty tough. i've never rode it though.

    here is the location of the gate that was closed. N34 36.198 W94 47.844
