    Per Sieg’s order to suck it up... I got back out in the woods and headed to the Swinging Bridges in Brumley. The DR ran great again as a DR should.

    Here’s the day in pictures. I tribute this day to BigDog who says- “My life is better than your vacation”. BigDog should come here next week for some riding Tuesday and Wednesday during the 60 degree heat wave...

    Great riding in central Missouri, at least for a little bit. 53 degrees and sunny.

    Trash talk from my wife to "Scott In Missouri"
    She says if you want something with a lot more performance she'll trade you her Scooter for that clapped out DR650 of yours. :lol3:jack She just needs some more ground clearance for jumping logs !!!

    On a more serious note-----------Scott (or anybody else)-----------I'm going camping in the Shawnee Forest in Illinois for at least 3 days ---------will camp Sunday thru Wednesday nite at Horseshoe Lake West side campground----------Electric hookups, the shower house is still open the lady said-------no reservations taken-------just show up. $20 for you young folks with jobs and such---$15 for old codgers like me. Easy dualsport riding.
    50 amp for Siegs big rig :lol3
    50---59° all 4 days.

    --- Thanks for the idea - I picked a used one up a couple of months ago - and was wondering the same thing - only getting about 30mpg and it likes to stall at low speeds downhill with clutch pulled in all the way. Figured time for a carb clean and inspection.

    Today was even better than yesterday. We went from the river to 1000 foot ridge lines. I never thought I’d see so much. It was awesome riding with three Super Veteran riders.

    Make sure to check your oil. When that happened to me fuel made its way into the crankcase vent hose and into the oil. Took me a minute to realize why I had over a gallon of oil drain out.

    I got schooled when we raced....even after I cheated I still got smoked!
    Stay tuned for video of the race folks...I know BigDog had the camera running when he flew by me on the 790.

    I got in a nice lake Ozark loop today.
