I hope you guys have a rowdy time...wish I was there.
Good times for sure. I ended up with 1,025 miles
Big Flats Arkansas
With Snakes being sponsored by Shinko, you would think he would show up with 2 good tires, not just the rear. The weight of the rolling couch and Rick's pace took it's toll. Calling around for a tire at the north end of Push Mt, that knot didn't look pretty. Rick rode home and we limped back to Mt View near the speed limit.
Snakes and Greg headed out early Saturday to fetch a new front tire. Our agenda was set, so Michael, Andy and myself headed West for a long day of riding.
Lunch stop in Hagarville
Jasper. There were bikes coming and going
You would think it were the dog days of summer
Someone wanted to get home and leave early this morning
We chose to ride Push out and back, 87 and 9 to Melbourne out and back. An awesome morning
Rubn exposing himself to a poor defenseless bunny. (He' s sick like that)
Some of us did some true Adventure riding including several miles of gravel roads. Its the proper way to scuff a new tire. The lightweights stuck to the pavement stuff. Rookies
I think I was in that the neck of the woods one time....
Looks like a good time!
Nice! I recognize that white Strom too, but I hear it has Sta-bil in the tank right now
We rode right by that spot heading South on 21. Michael said he wanted a pic with a view, as all our stops were at country stores. So I pulled into Pedestal Rock scenic area on 16 on our way back. His tune changed because it was a 2.2 mile loop hike lol.
By this time Snakes and Greg were already back and I got a pic of a sink full of beer on ice.
I have No idea what you're talking about...
Did some gravel around Crawleys Ridge Sunday. Found a couple of sunflowers.
Made a stop buy the ole mighty Mississippi.
The area around Crawleys Ridge has lots of good gravel form Madison (just outside of Forest City) to Helena. This is on CR744, pretty much a one lane dirt road (very rough) with LOTS of curves.
for a cold drink and a snack on the way back home.
Quick stop a the car wash down the street from the house. You know what they say, a clean bike is a...............well you know a clean bike.
You actually washed the KiLR? You're so vain.
I would have joined you clowns, but I road tripped to Brimstone to ride some dirt with a buddy. He had an XR400 waiting on me, then he let me ride his EXC 500 for a while. I'm ruined. What a great bike.
So many good roads with barely any traffic
man you sure don't see good looking old Gulf Oil Signs like that much anymore!
I guess the heat is kicking everyone's ass.
Anyone in the Memphis area need a 190/55ZR17 rear tire?
Michelin Pilot Road 4. $150. Still has the sticker on it. I'll even mount it and static balance it if you bring me the rear wheel. Looks like they're currently going for $225+shipping @ revzilla (https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/michelin-pilot-road-4-rear-tires)
I think I got these from revzilla ~ 2 years ago, for my K1600GT. I normally buy 1 front and 2 rears at a time. Anyway, one really bad flat on a road trip 2 years ago necessiated buying a rear while on the road. About 3 months ago, I went on a 3,500 mile trip and thought I had enough rear rubber to make the trip. Turns out the cords on the existing rear started showing in Knoxville, so yet again I had to replace the rear while on the road.
So two years later and I still have the two rears sitting on my shelf. The way I'm riding my other bikes, I'll only need one of the rears over the next year or so.
Great! Now Bill is looking for a bike to roll that tire under!
