    Call for help! Non-Emergency here. Cash reward.

    I would like to have two small items (Thule roof rack adapters) picked up at eTrailer.com in Wentzville and brought as far south as you can stand. St Clair? Sullivan? Rolla? to meet me. I'm leaving on a trip today and we're running out of room in the minivan. It's not a need thing. it's definitely a want. But if you're free and want a mission and some cash to cover gas plus a little beer when you get home, post up and send me a text.

    That's another "good" thing to put on the list about getting old..:lol3. There are a few items in the "not so good" column too..
    We'll expect more RRs now!

    As Jeff said, there are a couple good things about getting older, less work is definitely one of them. See you on the trail.

    I rode across Kansas about three weeks ago. From Denver. On a Burgman Scooter. And enjoyed it. How, you might ask? I came across on highway 160 on the edge of Kansas and Oklahoma. Quite different. Lots of little towns. Varied landscape. And a few sights to see, such as...

    At this point I was headed down to hwy 160 and was not going west. The fence row of "things" were on the north side so I simple u-turned to take a picture.

    I've tried 36 a few times. 50 a few times and one smaller one that ran east west just a bit north of 50. Along with many trips on I-70. I think I like 50 the best.
    I have a good friend that lives in Cottonwood Falls. Amazingly pretty part of KS. Ha. Just kidding you Jayhawkers!!

    I've been through there a time or too, interesting art on that stretch off road!
    I think that is near the town of Greensburg Ks, that town got wiped out by a F5 tornado in 07

    10-4 on the wiped out. My wife and I came through there about two weeks after the tornado came through. Nothing was left standing. The town was, essentially, gone.

    I could never make out what those figurines were. Does someone from Kansas know?:confused:scratch

    I camped at the little city lake in Greensburg in June. Was free as was the sound of kids cussing twenty feet away from me at midnight. Oh well. The town has some nice new buildings. My route west had me south of there along the OK boreder. I thought it was very good riding. Lean on the throttle and enjoy the ride.

    Checking in here,
    I've lived in or around Rolla for 4 years, moved away and then came back and now living in Cabool.
    I'm looking to branch out and find some more people to ride with. My Offroad bike is not street legal so not too much duel sporting at the moment.

    Sounds like a good weekend to ride. Just replaced a cam chain adjuster gasket on the wifes 650. Hopefully I'll wrap up the Big Bore install on our DRZ400. Time to ride. Need to wear out the tire on my 650 so I can get a new knobby.:clap
