    Nice CX650 Turbo. I’d be gone all day on that and to heck with the rest of you.

    Day 4 - 47 miles

    Day 4, the house awakens and is full of old men groans. Our last day of riding errr trespassing in this lovely state. Once again the production crew roll the steeds out in front of the house, as we finish our morning cup o joe. Right before we leave Zip happens to be glancing upon every bike to review their shape and notices Rick "10 inches" JonEs is missing some hardware. Apparently his axle nut decided not to return with him the day before so we had some quick mechanical tending to.[​IMG]

    This look familiar, yes?

    Yup, 2 blocks shy of where I ran out a day ago, and 3 blocks away from the gas station… Why don't I just install the big tank that I have sitting at home in the garage???

    A few miles away we head to Guy's to swap bikes again. Bruce decides to take chance with his 450 as we have a short and tight technical riding day planned, Freddie takes his bonus steed back with joy as his original bike is pissing oil out of the top end faster than a Ol' Faithful in Yellowstone.

    We head to the Stillwater 500, a private trail-riders club on 500 acres with some terrific single track.[​IMG]

    Spend the morning riding some great trails

    Rick gets impaled by a stick off the trail

    Our most handsome pose for the March Moto Madness Cactus picture submission - Look for this in the June calendar slot on "Bare-back riders over 50" 2022. These boys better fucking win, they're winners in my heart (and spank bank :viking)

    The beta starts acting up and develops a hanging idle that makes it practically un-rideable, causes me to duck out early and join Rick catching his breath in the pavilion while the rest ride on

    Bruce in an effort to honor Guy "Airtime" Cooper sends it

    Rick "10 inches' JonEs ripping it!

    The rest of the team show up to see me working on my Italian stallion with a mouth full of Hungarian sausage. Turns out righting a mis-routed throttle cable seems to be the ticket.

    We head back to our staging area for a quick hydration/snack break

    Back out to Cooperland for a final few sessions. Hilarity ensues, some people take a tumble and some passes are attempted

    My clutch begins losing pressure and I decide to sit out the rest with Zip and Rick, pound a few cold ones while the rest finish up.

    Dinner is early and at Rick's house, we summon his son as our door-dash driver. A few large pizzas, a few cases of beer and some leftover stickers make for a great evening to end our Oklahoma exploration tour on.

    All in all, another one for the books boys!

    Thank you Guy Cooper for being such a hospitable host to a group of Yankee degenerates, the State of Oklahoma and it's residents for not issuing arrest warrants for our crew. Finally last but certainly not least Thank you Rick "10 inches" JonEs for hosting, planning, leading and taking on the chance of our team embarrassing you every moment of every day! Can't wait for the next one! :clap:lobby:muutt

    I saw the American Pickers episode at Guy's place. Pretty cool setup he's got there. He's a real tough negotiator too!

    So, I gotta ask who your cousin is who led you to the B&B store in Kendrick, OK? I actually grew up just a couple of miles from there. My parents moved out there when I was one year old (50 years ago) and still live there. They have 80 acres that is some great off roading. I went to the elementary school at Kendrick with a total of 8 kids in my class.

    I used to frequent the B&B store while growing up.

    Just surprised to see my old stomping grounds. Small world.

    Small world indeed, no cousins in the area just Rick "10 inches" JonEs and his compatriot Roger. Rick grew up in that area and is quite familiar with it, he escorted us around to check out all the good stuff. How did the trolley end up behind the store?|?!

    Hey glad to see that you f**kers are still alive and kickin'. Plus I see that again it is the venerable WR 250R that is NOT the one that breaks down. And you still have those freakin yellow pants. Jeez.

    I enjoyed the ride report. You guys are a hoot!
