    I will ride on Saturday. If I have Monday off I will ride on Sunday. Coming over to the Hub from Mountain Home early on Saturday. I enjoyed riding last year and the CRF got new tires since then which will be a big plus. Ken

    Was just down that way this week, rode the wr to ouachita nf and plan to do this ride, but not looking forward to the ride down again. Will have to split up the ride into a couple of days from stl. Followed some great tracks and excited to do another section of AR. Wish I could get another STL inmate to ride down or trailer up and drive. Long days in dirt bike saddle make for sore butts.

    Really thinking about joining and I have a question: Would I be alright with the E07's I'm currently running on my F800GS or would it be worth having something with a little more bite in the gravel/dirt? I could just as easily truck my DRZ there but would much rather build up my DS experience on the big bike.

    You will probably be okay long as its dry. If wet and muddy it can be quite slippery here and some of the grades you need all the traction you can get.

    Plus, a lot of this riding is on gravel roads whuch will remind you a whole bunch of riding on marbles or ball bearings if on more street oriented tires.

    Linda and I are in. :clap Debbie said she'd have a spot for this ^ :dunno
    Nice lady, very accommodating, if we were too big, we were going to camp at Shady Oaks down the road, but it's nice to be with the group.

    Big thank you to the HUB and all those involved with making this ride happen. :beer

    We'll roll in on hhhmmmmm.....IDK, Wednesday?, Thursday?, and stay late if the riding's good. So..........we'll be up for some riding before the weekend, and after.
    Any suggestions?

    No trailer here - wish I had something I could haul my toys with and live in at the same time. I already made my reservations for a room at the HUB for the weekend but I am kinda tempted to change my plans and camp it. I have family in the area that might be willing to meet me at the park to catch up and visit. But then I'd be missing out on meeting new faces and all.

    "...... and tent camping sites are on the grounds too."
    If it's just me I may camp there. If Cathy's going to make an appearance (or it looks rainy:becca) I'll go for a room.

    Yes, there is riding on Friday. I will be at the Hub on my WR250R about 8:30 that morning and lead a ride leaving about 9am.
