man, ya miss a few days and all kinds of bad things happen. Hope Doc and Mike get to feeling better. I sure hate how those slick crossings can knock your feet right out from under you !
On a side note a bought a 2001 Honda XR650R today. What was I thinking ?,He didn't have a key for it, doesn't really matter since I still haven't found the ignition, the starter button or the heated grips switch. May never get it going at this rate. Sure is a lot of fun to ride. Now, how to tell the wife? I may end up with a few busted ribs like Doc. Those motorcycles sure can get a guy in trouble. Njoytheride and ask for forgiveness.....later

Forgiveness is easier than permission. Hope you don't get too many cracked ribs.

Everyone start posting your favorite jokes to give doc something to take his mind off the pain. I bet the laughing will help the ribs.

Good morning, fellas, Happy Fathers Day

I've been lurking here for a few weeks, and have the rough draft laid out for my Big Ride through the Ozarks. Many thanks for the suggestions a while back, they were an important factor in the trip planning.


...... then I checked the weather forecast. WTF???? How the hell can it be hotter in Little Rock than it will be in Panama City???


So now the big question I have is, How much cooler would it be in the mountains? The mountains in East Tennessee can be 10-15 deg. cooler but they are also at 4-5,000 feet elevation.

A secondary question is, what about Night Riding? Do you have issues dodging big critters? Deer are a problem here, and I suspect they would be there also.

Again, I'll be in the shadows listening. Next week, If you see a loaded down silver V-Strom parked on the side of the road with a little fat guy passed out beside it, please throw a bucket of cold water on me.

Thanks!

Not to be critical we need to evaluate the oportunities to miss the green....
