    Hey, since most of the MO threads are ST. Louis or north, I figured we'd have a little BS thread for those of us that live near the Ozarks and have the great roads!

    INtroduce yourself. Pull up a chair and I'll send the kids after some beers. Its going to be a long summer.

Lots of damaged trees but the roads are still great!! Good to see this thread started, I am sure there will be mucho info added about your area. Thanks JED

    Depends, do you want it to count?

    I figure we could use this thread to talk about places like Mark Twain national, and points south....

    Stupid rain. Powersports of Joplin has a 100 mile group ride scheduled for Sunday. This is a reschedule of their April Fool's ride that was cancelled due to rain. I have a feeling these guys don't want to get their bikes wet and have to spend hours repolishing the chrome on their Shadow 750's. So, it will probably be cancelled again.

    No, the herd made it worse! Actually had a decent time, just wish the pace would have been double.

    Just rode to Pittsburg, KS and back. Had a not so nice suprise when I switched to high beams -- there were two dear standing on the side of the road. They were completely invisible with low beams.

    Fortunately they decided to move away from the road.


    Well that was my pucker moment for the day. :D

    Well to keep this thread alive and on the first page, so I don't need to go searching multiple pages for it.:evil

    I just picked up a brand new to me 1985 Suzuki DR 500. Its in pristine shape except for the seat, some missing covers, no lights, etc.:rofl

    I tried to post some picts and they appeared when I was creating the message, however when the message was actually posted only links were displayed. Any ideas as too what I did wrong?

    Thanks
