Shee-yet. That ain't nothing. I did that at least three times after killing that fawn. mr2mch counted the gouges in the road. Oh. You mean do that on purpose and walk away. Nevermind. My bad.

I would'nt waste time on Dualstar-there's a whole thread on TWT about it. I ordered from them 5 years ago with no problem but shortly after I encountered same problem. No matter what your searching for-it can be found in other places.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

If you all meet in Paris, I can put you in good riding immediately. SOG knows these roads too. He and I have carved them up.

I'm fine with meeting in Ennis, I just didn't want to meet there if the plan involved heading straight north on the superslab on the same road I took to get to Ennis.

I could also meet in Paris, TX. Google maps claims that 2 hrs, 50 mins from my house on the slab. I should know by then if the Corbin is the saddle for me or if I'm going to have an uncomfortable weekend.

Let me know. I'm thinking I can leave my house pretty close to 9:30 unless the kids are running slow that day.

>>> I should know by then if the Corbin is the saddle for me or if I'm going to have an uncomfortable weekend.<<<

>>>You won't really kno the worth of the seat until you've been sittin on it for 8 hrs. Lots o folks chunk their Corbins after an hour long test ride thinkin that the seat feels like it's made outta bricks. The real test is to make sure the foam doesn't compress after a full day in the saddle. Now..having said that...lighter folks would prob prefer a Sargent to a Corbin,but at 275lbs I compressed the "Atomic Foam" of the Sargent,whereas my Corbin retains it's shape all day long.<<<
The custom seat builders like Mayer & Russell tailor the foam used to rider weight & size while Corbin & Sargent are "off the shelf" more or less.

I'm lookin at FM195 from Paris over to Albion on TX37 then into OK & US259 up to Bethel OK144/The Indian Hwy up to Talihina.From there OK82 to OK31 thru McCurtain to Bokoshe & north to US59 & US64 over to Vian to pick up OK82 again.Take that up to OK100 near Barber then Welling Rd up to US62 & OK10 & US59 again to OK20 into the NW corner of AR. Hop on up into the mountains of SW MO to pick up MO90 over to MO37 then MO112 up to MO76 near Cassville. From 76 we can pick up US160 near Reeds Spring.

Of course somewhere in all this we'll be stoppin for the night with a "regfreshing" BS session I'm sure.

EDIT...I found MO125 ...the part north of 160.....looks badass
