    However, for real adventure riding, take a chiva over the same roads for 4 hours...

    Should have grabbed a seat on the roof Jaime! Colombia is great but damn it's expensive to take a leak here

    After flailing for the last couple of years in the pursuit of Walleye I finally had some luck. Buddy of mine came up and we fished the White River Below Beaver Lake Thursday and Friday. 9798C2E6-ED84-44D7-B662-64BEB32D4986.jpeg

    Nice!!

    Those stripes or hybrids and crappie look good too
    I've only caught one walley in years of fishing on beaver
    I've been told they are great eating

    They're absolutely the best fresh water fish you can eat in my opinion.

    I agree, we fried up a bunch in beer batter Thursday just after we got off the water. The Crappie are almost as good.

    Well I thought I would post my thoughts on the new Katie M. It is no 990 on the road but it much easier to up right after getting it's first adv marks. Nice mid sized bike just winds out pretty quickly. I will have to get the ,990 repaired.

    Oops i forgot my Good Morning NWA.

    Good Morning Charlie, how is the vagabond life going?
    Good Morning to the NWA ADV coffee klatch. :rofl
    Doc good morning, get into town so you don't become a hermit.

    Good morning Kris, vagabonding is good. We are in Tucson until the end of March and then off to Texas for a family wedding. Then back to F'ville for doctors and visiting Brad. From there to Jazz Fest in New Orleans and then up the East coast. Oh, and its too late for Doc not to become a hermit.

    Hey Mike,

    I lack enough full names to have figured out if Billy Wing and Charlie ? Goldwinger and KLR commuter know you, while we were sharing soups on Saturday night.
    I figured the Siloam Springs / Cincinnati motorcycle community is small enough that you all have crossed paths. I believe Charlie was involved with Siloam Springs Cycle at one time.

    Well, doubt I'll be doing a Colombia ride report so here's a mini photo dump.

    Picking up the bikes. Will is contemplating the shitty rear tire on his.

    My sweet Honda XRE 300 DOMINATOR. I got the rally version. Want to know how to make a DR650 seem like a rocket? Ride one of these for a week. Actually not a bad little dual sport.

    Jim lost his dentures or something near his sweet DOMINATOR

    Our first hotel in Guatape was a ride-through-the-lobby kind of deal. Note the flat tire on Jimmy's bike. First of two on the trip.
    [​IMG]


    View from the hotel room was nice. I think this place cost about $30 for three of us.

    Waiting for some construction to clear on the way out of town

    This house was set among shade-grown coffee fields and flowers. Don't know what kind of trees have the whitish leaves but they were all over and looked pretty cool.

    Lunch break in Aguadas

    Will acting all heroic and shit.

    More crappy scenery. The endless green, curvy mountain roads really got tiresome.
    [​IMG]


    Jim chatting up a construction worker. I think she's trying to send him a message.

    Will had a problem with bottles breaking in his top box all through the trip. Here he learns that bottled beer and bumpy dirt roads don't mix.

    More crappy scenery

    And that's it. Waiting to turn in the bikes. The little goat path off to the left is the driveway to the bike rental place. Excellent ride in a beautiful country, I'll be going back. I will say that the food isn't as good as in Mexico, however.
