    Coma,
    FYI, I went with ERdoc to "Adrenaline Rush" in Panama City, an Independent small sport bike type place to get a valve stem replaced on his RT front tire. He removed the wheel and carried it in, replaced in 15 minutes and out, $20.00, no issues since. For what its worth, they are on Motorcycle SuperStore's "preferred installer" list.

    The turn by turn will come later, but here's the big picture.

    Hey guys,Here's the itinerary and lodging info for our upcoming trip:
    9/23: Lynn Haven > Jasper, GA (Woodbridge Inn)* (365 mi')
    9/24: Jasper > Asheville (225 mi')
    9/25: day ride (200+ mi')
    9/26: day ride (200+ mi')
    9/27: Asheville > Oxford, AL (Holiday Inn Express)** (320 mi')
    9/28: Oxford > Lynn Haven (290 mi')

    You should already have your Asheville hotel reservations but will need to reserve for the trip up and back.

    As far as I know it's me, Chuck, Wyn, Mike, Ron & Dave...I'll email the exact routes when I have them completed - and we'll figure out a rendezvous point for the Tallahassee guys.

    IF this trip happens for me I will cage up to Elljay and hook up with you guys in Jasper GA and hang with you a few days around Ashville (never been on bikes) and then come back with another coupla days in NC. It could be me or up to four.
    We don't want to intrude but we would like to be shown all the twisties in Asheville....

    Still got some time to get set...

    A few of us attended the BMWNEF Winter Rally during January. It was a wet weekend, but otherwise a good trip/ride.

    FYI, we're headed to the Ozark's April 11-18ish. We're on the fence about riding or towing, we ride two day up and two days back, three day rides there, or two one day up and one day back, five day rides in the Ozark's.

    Hey guys,

    I finally have the itinerary for our upcoming trip. I booked a room for me and Chuck but the rest of you need to go ahead and make your reservations while rooms are still available.

    The plan is to trailer the bikes to Caddo Valley, AR and store the trucks/trailers at a storage facility near our hotel. I already talked to a guy at Caddo Valley Landing, http://www.caddovalleylanding.com/. He said he can accommodate us for about $25. That will give us 6 days of good riding from there.

    Itinerary:

    Apr 11: Lynn Haven, FL > Caddo Valley, AR, (640 mi')
    Apr 12: Caddo Valley > Russellville, AR, (217 mi')
    Apr 13: Russellville > Russellville, AR (252 mi')
    Apr 14: Russellville > Eureka Springs, AR (220 mi')
    Apr 15: Eureka Springs > Eureka Springs, AR (249 mi')
    Apr 16: Eureka Springs > Mountain Home, AR (230 mi')
    Apr 17: Mountain Home > Caddo Valley, AR (256 mi')
    Apr 18: Caddo Valley > Lynn Haven (640 mi')

    more photo's here...http://bmwsporttouring.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=986128#Post986128

    Our next planned out of state ride.... http://bmwsporttouring.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=986409#Post986409

    Great post. :lurk
    We need to hear more from our PCAR neighbors.

    We should plan a local lunch/breakfast gathering.

    Can I use your pic for Turkey Trot fun?

    Vico,
    Do whatever you want with it! There was another RT, not with the BMWST, who hit a turkey mid-bike over the same weekend. The turkey shattered the headlight and other plastic pieces doing over $4300 in damages. He stayed upright though, and was riding two up.

    Hello all.. New guy here. Just moved to Tyndall Area. Is there a good local place to mount a tire? I ordered a new rear and just need it mounted/balanced.
    Thanks.
