It mostly runs east-west, SBR runs mostly north-south. Some of it is in the same area but I tried not to use any SBR tracks ‘cause that’s stuff we’ve all rode before. It does go over the SBR track around Goodwater and again near Palmer, just no way to avoid some of it. BTW I’d love to help someone look for some new/different SBR tracks.
Looks like this will be a great weekend to do this ride, me, Camel Bill and Farrell so far.

Was all set to meet up with you Guys but this evening's storms have brought the St Francis river up so we are going to stay at our cabin and hit the white water. It's been a long dry spell.

I didn't get up early to meet the guys, so I went for a ride. I was just north of Fredericktown on CR219 a gravel road, when I see two motorcycles coming at me. Next thing I know it's Seig and Camel Bil. We stopped and talked alittle and I decided that I would ride with them for lunch at Lesterville. We took some nice gravel roads. Camel Bill talked about Big Boy Hill and trail well all I can say is that the Sertao will never be the same. Thanks for letting me tag along.

Sunday

We were heading out for a Sunday float trip and 5 year old Stuboy chatted up some guys on a n R12RT, Tiger Girrlie, and new gen KLR. Looked like they were up to some good riding, had perfect weather anyway.

Sieg's Route

All I can say is Sieg has put together a great route, and it will eventually become an epic annual ride. It has alot more off-road sections than the SBR, so it is much more challenging. I think will will make a great annual fall ride. We worked out some of the bugs, and added a few more tricks. As RorDog said, it has some very fun sections . .

Thang Sieg, great ride, looking forward to doing it again.

Tweaking a few things. Linda and I will do a little more exploring this weekend, when we're at the club. I found the lost track with a rock creek crossing, it will be there next year. Going to add a few more "Big Boy" sections. But there will be bypasses. Glad you had a good time on the first,… Pucky Huddle Breakfast Run?.

We will gather at 10:00 AM ( Rusty Jug parking lot) and leave by 10:30, will stop at Stockton, for lunch at a neat little hole in the wall joint for some food, should be about a 100 mile track. Hope to see you there!

Sounds like a good time. Did you ride big bikes, 800, 950 ?

I'm always looking for more places to ride the 950.

Wrong side of the state. If you're ever over here ways......I would happy to share the knowledge I have on BaseCamp. I can do about anything I want but my wants are not too large.
