I would like to now that there has been some rain done there, but I will be at the Hillbilly Dualsport tour in Arkansas with my WRR this weekend.

Speaking of tires, it sure was fortuitous for all concerned that I was at the campout when solorider brought ghost a nice TKC front and a so-so Shinko rear tire along with three (3) new tubes. I explained to solorider that ghost was a public servant and as such could not accept gratuities. Won't even let you buy him a Coca Cola. I then told him I was under no such rulz and also owned a KLR. Presto! And voila! New shoes for KilLeR. Man. That was lucky for all of us.

I'll take photos. You really need to get there more often. I try to ride street or dirt there at least 3 or 4 times a year, even it is just a quick over nighter.

I know, Rich. I have had many fantastic street rides in Arkansas but not in a good while. But I have never been able to consistently route myself on dirt up there.

Many years ago (like 40) I saw a pic in a motorcycle magazine of a Honda 750-4 pulling a sailboat.

I once pulled a trailer with 3 full size kegs with all setups. This was with a RD 350. I do not suggest pulling 400 pounds of crushed marble if you want to stop very fast.

I should be wandering around on KilLeR today. Getting a late start because I had to push the esposa out the door with a bucket of puppies. 3 females. All excretory functions guaranteed working perfectly. Anatolian Pyrenees Cross. Beautiful. Free to a good home. $1.89/pound to a bad home.


Pics tonight if they are still here. You won't find better dogs. Edit: Well. That was quick. All gone.




And yes, Michaela. I am kidding. Nothing lives better than an animal at my place.

Sunday ride plan taking shape. In fact, almost complete. Cavemanjed and I are meeting somewhere at some time to go somewhere else for lunch. Others might or might not join us.
