    Loose Nut. I have the tracks for 2012 and 2013 rides on my PC just waiting to go into my Montana. I'm hoping to ride them this spring/summer. I'll probably even do this ride again.
    It was really cool meeting you and BigDog on the ride and seeing you guys several times along the way. Thanks.

    Sam Correro called me today and gave me an update about him getting sick.

    Me and Steve knew he went home early Sunday as he was very sick----throwing up----feelin bad----and that other thing :huh:huh:huh:huh:huh
    He left us at Burden Falls-----------pretty early in the days ride after breakfast in Ozark.

    When he got home he was feeling so bad he went to the ER and he was so de-hydrated they put him on an I--V.
    And his tri-glycerites---or something the other----was way out of wack.

    He said he's fine now---but sounded a little weak on the phone--------he also said he had a great time and wants to come back and ride this in warmer weather----and bring his girlfriend. She's a rider too.

    I'll bet he'll have heated grips on his bike when he comes back---whether he needs them or not. !!!!!

    My boy and me did part of the Sunday ride today, perfect weather for it, his new rid performed flawless, we were a little scared to stop and take many pics because there must have been 300-350 trucks on the sides of the road deer hunting.

    Tom Dick hill road is very cool and I had never been on it before, there was 4 trucks and two campers in the burden falls parking lot... :eek1

    they gave us the evil eye when we stopped and started walking down the trail to the falls. :lol3

    Nice looking vintage bike. I don't know much about that model but it looks cherry.

    Looks like you were in Bill Hill Hollow too. Did you drive through the creek or woos out and detour around like I did?

    After killing out on Friday, I too took a spin from our deer camp to Tom Dick Hill and by Burden Falls that afternoon. Heck, there was a small city of hunters camped just east of the falls in the woods. I didn't notice any evil eyes. The looks I got were "WTF is motorcycle doing down here?" Actually, got the same look from several other deer campers further on. Remember, that morning the temp had been about 20. I don't recall the temp Friday afternoon, but it was still cool.

    So it was your shinko tracks we followed on the road, and we both blasted through the water, it was very deep and like an goofball I didn't get a pic of it.
