I am not worthy, just some old gravel roads. I hope it can live up to the hype, and not disappoint you all.

jeffrho they let anybody ride the Show Me and the SBR. I'd like to raise the bar for the PHBR and keep the rif raf out. You may not be accepted.

Sieg.
I had a hair raising ride last night. Its been 15 years since we swamped the 4x4 bronco on willy gully lane outside Chester. For some strange reason I tried it on the Tiger in the wet. The creek crossing went ok, the hill was interesting to say the least. Just when I thought I had conquered it, a large tree trunk blocked the road completely. I will unblock it within the next couple weeks.

It's a good Two track. Handful on the pig.

Bring the Versys so I don't look like a gurl.

Spot Tracker

This post isn't really relevant to the Missouri thread but thought it would be interesting to all.

I got to witness just how fast a downed rider can have a helicopter pick him or her up after pushing the emergency button on a spot tracker.

2 1/2 weeks ago we were on the old mojave road in California which is 170 miles of sand with nothing in between.
A gal riding with us (LDF--Francine) had her bike get squirrely in the sand------- high sided and really banged her head and was knocked out and was delirious when she came to.
Her Doctor boyfriend (Dr. Rock) immediately recognized she needed a head CT scan and pushed the button-------a chopper was overhead in 30 minutes-------30 minutes later she was in the trauma center in Las Vegas.

Cost for the chopper flight---with insurance-------$17

Pretty scary for all of us-------she's going to be OK.
My son bought me one about 3 years ago-------sure makes this old man feel better with it.

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

I originally bought mine for my wife. (Her peace of mind, being able to track me through the day and getting the "I'm ok messages.) however, I've heard lots of stories about how good they work when you need it. I've hit the emergency button once, help was on its way right away.
Thanks Mark, for posting. Good advice

Edit.. Your post also reminded me how much fun sand can be.. Not my favorite.

If you are on a trials bike. I've 4 wheeled it with my son a few times. Think rocks, big rocks, lots and lots of rocks. There is a small MC track, but it looks like you'd be done with that pretty quick. All the trails go up the mountain, it's a neat view from the top, but I wouldn't want to try and take any bike up there. I think trials bikes do go there. Perfect for them.

I went up there on my KDX220 a few yrs ago.. it was an awesome ride, would love to take my WR250R back up there.. some really technical rock climbing.. i just kept telling myself.. when in doubt throttle out.. only fouled one plug that day! You can see off in the distance to the right of that big rock the building where you unload.. it was amazing! Haven't been there in a few yrs though..

I see the building, but laughing to myself, maybe your fouled plug started the fire beyond the building... Actually, I'm thinking in the near future of heading down to Washita, two weeks...

I was there not too long ago. Guys have been taking huge 4 wheelers up there through the mud.. (Where it's not boulders)
Some of the mud holes are 3 and 4 foot deep. Hope you get some dry weather before you go. We've had lunch up there a few times, on the top. It is a nice view. There is also a trail map you get when you check in. My son likes the extreme stuff in the jeep. Possible the easier trails would be more fun on a bike..

Sam Correro 2-Day Dualsport May 18-19 2013

If any of you Missouri riders are interested in a 2 Day dualsport ride down in Mississippi put on my Sam Correro (creator of the Trans America Trail)-----I'll post a link below to the info.

Most of this is on the Tennesee portion of the TAT.
He did this last year and it was free-----Me and Bash3r did that.
This year I will be a ride leader again------gps tracks can be had for this. Go to the link


So here's the link----please don't clutter up the Missouri thread with questions---put them at the link if necessary and I'll try to help you out.
