Been working ALOT recently but come next month I am working less and playing more. Would be great to ride with you and a lot of the others on the thread also.

Yup, it was. I was on my way back home after having to leave my darn husky dead at my friend's house due to an electrical issue.

I do, I do. But that's because you told me.
I think the PHBR would be a great ride to take it on.

Agreed, bring that on the PHBR

Things it obviously is:
A Rokon
A Motorsikkle

Things it obviously isn't:
One of their 2wd motos
A tiny little tractor (click here for the reference)


But I wasn't able to find an exact match because the engine looks different. Similar to the ISDT or the RT340 but again, the engine is different.

Bring it to the AHRMA Cross Country this weekend at White City!

Off Road route from St. Louis to Southern Illinois

Fellow Adventurers,

I am riding my 990 Adv up from NW Arkansas to St. Louis for business. After my meeting I plan to take a day and a half to get back.

Are there any good off road routes from St. Louis down to Cairo? I'm envisioning an arc shaped route, but I could also enjoy mirroring the Mississippi.

Any ideas are welcome. Links to any good routes would be awesome.
Thank you.

Doug - you should definitely take that V Twin Rokon on the PHBR. Probably won't be many others.
