    The DR does have a been there, done that advantage over the R.E., but the Himalayan is built like a tank. It needs time to be proven/disproven.

    I call the TOP bunk this time!!! My old back won't handle that bottom bunk again... :gerg :hide

    I'll be riding the NEW Tenere over so I won't be taking up any room in the toy hauler for the trip over/back.

    Do you mean to tell me that most of the riding will be done sticking around Oark area? I was looking forward to traversing forest roads working West to East crossing the usual paved arteries for gas as needed over toward Push 103,21,123,16,74,27,14. Exactly how east (town?) should one expect to venture to for these rallies. Maybe that’s too time consuming for dirt, as I’m use to that distance via paved sportbike.

    @Black Eye . A 160-180 mile loop on dirt/forest roads is a pretty full day and I've had 50mile days on a small bike in some of the more remote and difficult areas whip my ass for 6 hours. Plenty of great riding in all directions but most rides out and back are well under 200 miles.

    Yeah but he just tiptoed around quietly then moved on to a less scary sounding campsite... True story....:deal

    The story I heard was that the bear left the campsiite because he could not stand the smell.

    Only a few weeks out, folks. In list updated and shirts for sale. Post up on this thread if you need anything hauled to the site and maybe someone can help you out. I've ordered some nice weather, but you never know. At least there won't be a 4 am "surprise."

    Also pleased to announce that there will be some nice raffle prizes on hand, and a low-key cookout Saturday night, burgers, dogs, a few adult beverages, etc. So for the low, low price of free (registration) you could win a prize, eat a burger, ride your ass off and hang out in beautiful Northwest Arkansas. Where's the bad in that?

    Speaking of dogs, are there any aggressive, roaming, oversized, ill-tempered dogs at Mulberry Mountain camp? Need to decide if Grace is coming with me :hmmmmm

    seems like most of those are around every blind corner in AR and apparently think I'm an easy take down

    My neighbor’s dogs at the Y in my road can do about 30mph and they fall for the juke every time.

    I know some people who fit that description, unsure about the dog situation.
