Short ride today? You okay?

BTW, I was on that road to Oark last year. Never realized it was part of the TAT.

blast furnace type conditions out there today. strange collection of road surfaces on this route...short sections of paved to short sections of fairly technical...everything in between. these roads will for sure bite you in the ass if you're not paying attention.

not too bad miles on the day, all considered. way behind on the report, but remember, i'm 150 years old and need to rest up a little after days like this.

encountered a young rider sidelined with heat exhaustion at the Oark cafe. he was with a larger group and they went for a truck to pick him/bike up. good group of guys on a variety of bikes.

i got some ice on him to start cooling him down and he was looking a lot better when i left.

Stay cool then. Glad the young rider was looking better when you left.

I always do my report after the trip, so no worries there.

JD you say its not an AMG Benz nor an econobox, and it undefined. I say call it "Makers Mark" after all "It is what it isnt"

Wild day on the gravel...bears, deer, coyote, road closures, blocked roads, detours, drunk drivers and cops, street drags...and the V649HP's monster leap off that ledge on the Warloop.

Got lost...briefly.

Pushing on west.

I will never forget my introduction to Warloop in '99. Going east to west on it. I thought I was lost for awhile and was really hoping I would not hit a dead end and have to come back up that road and the ledges I had to drop off of at that time. ;-)
Thanks for taking us along.

don't know what it looked like in '99, but i can understand why a rider might run into problems there. i saw no tracks, top or bottom, makes me wonder whether riders are going around.

you could go down in there and sort out the lines...nah, didn't do that. had a freakin' fright on the descent instead.

Couldn't have been too bad a spill, you weren't in one spot for too long yesterday according to your locater beacon......I think it will buff right out.

spectacular wreck, one of the more dangerous conditions i've found on an in-use public road. did the trick ok, missed the landing, wrecked, got up, limped around a little, waved to the crowd, picked up the bike...and went to work with the buffer.

cross into Colorado today, then the CDR. with all the energy sector work ongoing, some of these Oklahoma TAT roads are getting a little nuts.

stay tuned...
