Loretta Lynn's Fall trail ride 2013 is 18-20 of this month. I'll be out there on the 450 EXC riding a casual trail pace. If you make it we'll have to see if you can smoke my old a$$. (pun intended of course)

About $4K more than the cost of a stock 450X. At least that's what Service Honda would get you for.

I just got in from a weekend sport touring trip over to Oklahoma at Clayton Lake State Park to attend an event. There were about 50 guys on dual sports to attend another event. What a great area to ride. Hell, I might even consider trailering the XR650R over there next year to attend the event with my friends and ride dirty with the dual sporters.

Description from the RideOK.com website list the following:
Adventure Rider Magazine 11th annual dual sport ride through the mountains of SE Oklahoma. Camp at Clayton Lake State Park and ride off-road through the beautiful Kiamichi mountains of SE Oklahoma. Rides available for all bike sizes and skill levels - big bikes, skinny bikes, and everything in between. Over 600,000 acres available for riding, including paved roads, dirt and gravel roads, jeep trails and single track trails.

Oklahoma's south east mountain region has great roads, high speed limits, excellent scenery, minimal LEO presence and more dirt than you would imagine. This is the second year I've made the trip over there. What a great place to ride!

Oh, and it is Bigfoot central. I did not see him, again, but there was a Bigfoot Festival going on too.

That sounds pretty sweet. Thanks for the heads up.
