    There are only a few spots left on Friday classes with the BMW Performance Center. Call and reserve your place now! Classes are limited to 5 participants!

    By the way, I've taken classes with the BMW Performance center before. Worth every penny! These instructors will have you doing things you never knew you could do!

    Keep n touch. I was planning on heading out Thur. A.M. If you end up ahead of schedule we can probably make something work.

    Go to www.butlermaps.com and get a motorcycle map of the Ozarks as it has all the great roads to ride in this area and southern Missouri. You will be astounded how many roads there are.[​IMG]

    Has anyone seen the route file for the GS Giants Saturday "Hoot and Holler" ride posted anywhere on bmwra.org? It mentions that it was supposed to be posted before the rally, but haven't seen it yet.

    Be advised that the Pig Trail, HW 23, is still closed south of Cass due to the ground settling in the rains this spring.

    here are a couple of great routes I used at the FJR Rally two weeks ago.
    Both of these start/end at The Hub which is ten miles south of Harrison on HW 7.
    The North Loop goes over into southern Missouri for some great twisties on 86,76, 125 and heads back south over the Peel Ferry and goes withing 20 miles of Push Mountain, which could easily be added.
    The south loop is twisty heaven in the mountains south of Harrison.

    My friend brought me to this distillery last summer : http://www.copperrundistillery.com/
    A nice little spot in Walnut Shade, Mo., a bit north of Branson , south of Springfield. The usual epic Ozark twisties, yada yada. Have fun.

    Many of the gas stations here sell real premium non-ethanol gas. Some even have 93 octane. The two on Hw 7 eight miles south of Harrison at the intersection of hw 206 both have it.
