    Dragon43, I really hope you make a ride with me soon. I saw your 500 for sale 1/2 mile up the road. I almost bought it, but I've reached my personal limit for carbs and batteries. Another bike can't come in until one leaves.

    12 on and 2 off is my reality. Sometimes it's 19 on and 2 off.

    Ive got relatives in the Benton/Bauxite area, did some fishing, exploring, and wading in the saline river down there a long long time ago. I recall some area near Crows arkansas with a cave? maybe that was the upper saline river.

    and then the Fuche Lafave river, caught the biggest smalmouth of my life there on fly tackle..

    they were wonderful places as I remember them from childhood.

    seemed like a million miles of old dirt roads back then, Id certainly like to do some more exploring all over that area.

    You and all the rest know where I live, got a big tent if you don't like the couch, reasonable motel on the mountain, park camping & cabins, nice bathrooms & showers, swimmin in the summer for the kids, Travis knows, the park is where I first met him....

    I have a shop we can hang in and lie about riding..... Reminds me, I need to hook up the little fridge and see if it works so there will be a cool place for your beverages.... :freaky
    I need more room for my diet cola's anyway....

    I can't ride Saturday. Mama wants to go get hay AND insisted that I go climb Pinnacle Mt with the family. The next weekend is looking good, though.

    If you see a yellow riding suit in Hot Springs it's more than likely me. I ride to work most days.

    Yellow sprint RS, red hawk gt, red/white XR650L. It's easier to just look for the yellow suit.

    Arkansawyer, what are we supposed to do if we see the yellow riding suit? And do you own a monkey named Curious George?
