All the time
Fast Eddies, I guess it's never too hot for hot coffee, so it's never too cold for a cold beer. So around 11:00?
heading out to Fast Eddies, maybe riverfront riding, rivers are way down, good access point? Illinois side, across from Missouri Riverview Drive, there seems to be a large "dune" area.
Sorry I missed you. I should have had a BIG ADV Flag. I did run in to Rustynut and had a few beverages. I hope to see you all on the trail SOON!
I am also IN for this years SLAP Rally. VSTROM down and then plenty of twistys and gravel
Catch you all next time . . . ended up doing a mountain bike ride. Only 17 miles, but a couple hours of huffin' and puffin'
Thanks for the replies. I'm down with a bad case of stomach flu at present but hopefully will it will pass soon and I can get out and about again. Rotten snow anyway : ( Looking forward to meeting you in hopefully better riding conditions
I was there!!! Had a few of the "coldest" ones. Watched the Bears, knew that I had some riding yet to do, looked around, didn't see any familiar faces, Yeah a ADV flag could have helped, even better would be if they let you park your bike at the bar. Maybe next time.
Still thinking this trip through, It is a looooong way down on a XR650. I do have a trailer, is that cheating? By then I will need to do a rear tire swap, 705 Shinko is getting bald, quickly. If anyone else is planning for this trip, put out a list of what you might be packing as far as tent, food, tools, clothes, ETC. I want to be equipped properly, as this would be the longest outing. This would be assuming I would bike down instead of trailering. Thanks!
Lots of peaple trailer or truck. Its is not frowned upon. Tent ,water, tools and tubes. everything else is available locally. Hope to see you there!
It's not cheating trailering down there....that used to be the general location for the Fall Color Tour that was held in Clarksville, AR every year. There are so many gravel and offroad riding areas down that way that it's nice to wear yourself while you are down there knowing you can take it easy driving home in your vehicle.
If you go to the Central GPS Forum there should be some old posts and tracks for the riding. Search for Fall Color Tour. A buddy I met down there TbirdSP will have them uploaded. It used to be split up into the Adventure Tracks for bigger bikes and Knobby Tracks with some tough offroad thrown in.
It is one of the most beautiful places to go that is within 8 hours of St. Louis....make sure you ride down by Mount Magazine if you do go.....some stunning views and great forest roads and trails too.
I am thinking about SLAP this year but it is the same weekend as a mtn bike event I attend in Arkansas so I'll have to flip a coin.
Here's a link to some tracks and info of the area
I took an adventure ride today... snow on the gound, ice in the air and water running down my neck
I HAD to try out my new Gerbing gloves. They are incredible. I thought heated grips were great, but heated gloves are where it's at.
Happy New Year, Missouri ADV Thread!
And a complete heated outfit is even better!
Yes, I use a heated jacket liner, too. My legs never seem to get that cold, but having them be actively warm sounds like a real treat.
Something orange followed me home yesterday.
Congrat Greg! Nice looking bike!
That is a picture of beauty
Thank you and Happy New Year and what's with this damn snow, we need to ride
