keibler told me about http://motorcycleroads.com/best/?s=75 . I've done push mt, but at least 4 others of these are in northwest arkansas

bikes blues & bbq is coming so i've been plotting. I'm thinking i'll leave work around the same time as if i was going home on friday hit some of these on the way out & some on the way home sunday.

Collarbone isn't healing so good so they tell me they're giving me a "bone stimulator" (fill in your own joke here) turns out its not a lap dance. I get the call to pick it up 3pm thrusday. Ya know if i leave tonight

I get home & pack the bike & i'm off

Ran by work for a minute, heading up poplar and the radio dies. Stop for batteries & boy am i glad i did



i better fix that & off again

some one else enjoying the night air



a couple of gas stops later i'm just past little rock, asked a gal at the store which hotel was the cheapest, she wasn't sure. I said which ones got a bar. She said razorback pizza had a bar, but across the interstate was a bar, bar.

Called around, i'm gonna head up the road to cheaper hotel. but on the way what's a "bar bar" That would be a strip club. i didn't know

I was beat maybe next time. Rolled into conway, went down town found Old Chicago. They have a happy hour after 10pm. = 3$ pizza & alot of draft choices.

big plans to sleep in sense i got such a early start, but woke up around 6:30 glad to be on the way,

when i pulled into town everything was wet where i'd just missed the rain, this morning not so much



breakfast, strange to eat breakfast on wkday with out the steering wheel in hand



but i could get used to it

did some work stuff on the phone for about an hour as i packed, steading raining

watched alittle tv, after all these years i can still ride in the rain i just have a hard time leaving in the rain

On my last trip to arkansas, i lost some screws that hold the facesheild on, couldn't find any anywhere

ordered some from hjc & of course they weren't here before i left.

There was a break in the rain and away i went, as soon as i got on the super slab the rain started back.

Now how bad has work gotten when your being hit in the face with rain at 80ty mile an hr & your grinning from ear to ear just glad to be here

Rolling up on russellville about 45 minutes later the rain quit, the fog parted and i saw a mt




exit stage right

As i come up on a steep grade sign, i hit reserve

oh well i kick it out of gear & throw it in neural.

coasted by the cliff house, heard they had good food and heck of a veiw

coasting.................................... .........


construction, gotta stop

the flagman was haveing a contest with the flagman at the other side. They pick a project and see who makes the best on at the end of the day.

To day was an arrow



He turned us loose & i did the flintstone to get started and away we went.







I was worried about holding up other people till i noticed they were getting farther and farther behind me.

Jasper time for gas and alittle break
