    some guys i ran into out in northern NM (that were from TX) said theres a big dual sport / offroad ride in Arkansas (or was it MS?) every year coming up shortly... i'm trying to find info on it as I'm interested in taking either the GS or the 450EXC.

    Nanotech,

    once every year, Tcourdin, takes his bike out of his garage, and washes it, and then rides around the block.

    is that the ride you are wondering about?

    Damn thats funny! I'm out of it today...and yes I meant to say bike. And even more funny when I was thinking of washing the bike I glanced over and saw my new beer fridge in the garage, so I drank instead of washing the bike.:lol3

    Here's the info from my other posts:

    Fall Color Tour

    Hampton Inn
    2630 West Clark Road
    Clarksville, AR 72830
    (479) 754-4444

    It's the weekend of October 24th / 25th

    A GPS is your friend down there.

    There are files in the GPS Central forum. There is an Adventure Loop (easier) and a Knobbie Loop (Harder) in the GPS file. It is an amazing place regardless of which route you take. You could easily get lost with a wrong turn. It's hard to believe riding like that is so close to us. If you like steep rocky mountain climbs and decents, creek crossings, rock trails, and mud - take the Knobbie route.

    Big bike Forest Road Riding with amazing views - the Adventure Loop though there are still a few challenging sections.

    Here's a post where you can download tracks RL Lemke made for the Fall Color Tour. Go to Post 7 by Tbirdsp....the tracks are there to download at the bottom.
