    Heck ya... were up here in Jellico. Not much to see. As many TAT ride reports as I've read you'd be surprised how many people up here act like the've never seen a dirt bike. Although the 950's are impressive!

    Frank & I had a warm send off this morning. We turned into mini celebs & aired on FOX 5 this afternoon.

    I'm gonna keep tabs on you guys and try to make it out to the trail in my neck of the woods when you guys come through, so if you run into a fat guy on a black and red XR650R in western OK, that'll be me.

    Hey Frank!

    Ralph here. sorry I have not kept up with you, finishing the house right now. You guys have a great trip. Had dinner with James Embro the other day and he is coming behind you. There are 4 guys doing the trip on Rallye 660's. So if you break down for long or get lazy, keep an eye in your rear-view mirror. :D those boys are pretty fast.

    I wish I could go but I have to invest this year for the future. Be safe, keep in touch. Just know I am super jealous.

    Hey guys, I am sorry I did not get to see y'all before you left. Things are about 190mph here right now, which is a good thing.

    Frank, you have my #. I expect a call if you guys need anything. :thumb

    You guys are doing a stand up thing for both causes you have chosen and I commend the both of you on that. Remember to take it easy and have fun while you're doing it, it should be one hell of a trip. You guys remember to stay hydrated out there, it gets a bit warm the farther west you go. Like Flux, I expect a call if either of you need anything. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the bikes, not so much you guys. :D
