Motojoes Arkansas ride pics

not



I got tired of waiting for joe to get out of the shower and post his pics from Arkansas, so I ordered some parts, and when they arrived, i fixed my broken bike, went for a ride and took my own pics, and here they are for the world to see.
creeks are full as you can see


If you're comming to the Spring Ride and have never been to the farm, look for these, they are directly across the road from farm lane



approaching command central


We got Wood, thanks to Vstromrunner and skeeter


look what I found in the wood pile



new sticker from drymike



Trails are clear and ready to ride thanks to Motojoe and Vstromrunner in their tireless efforts



Because Mutineer set a standard that must be followed


this is the place


a little splash in the creek



breaktime



remember turn North at the grain bins yff:grin



slow steady acceleration


Hungry go see the friendly wait staff at the bernadotte Cafe


a backdoor shot of bvkamps favorite watering hole
I watced the first 1/2 of the Illini game the pretty little barmaid




there's more pretty girls than one


Bernadottes Southside





Motobridge over the Spoon River



There goes another Scorpion



anyone heard from the Shadow?



Fulton County Sunset


My favorite



the old theatre in Havanna has recently reopened single screen, ticket girl in the front booth, 3.00 movies



Damn sharp gravel, time to call SWmototire





cheers
chain

That looks like one of the bottles that was stashed in the grill. I recognize the seal. It's good to have this kind snake bite medicine available at the farm in case of emergencys. I hear it can also help fix a busticated bike. By the time you get to the bottom of the bottle, either the bike is fixed or you don't care!

Nice pics!!

great pics Chain... brings back the fall ride instantly, I recognize almost everything. I was looking at the spring ride pics 4/2004 and it looks like this year might be warmer if this weather keeps up...(?)

what parts did you put on? I have the happytrails brace but haven't put the boots on yet. have you had any overheating problems with them on?

my dakar is SO freakin' clean... it's disturbing really. :--)
