That's a good plan, hope you can ride your plan, lot of fun stuff there! You are going to have a great ride! However, if there are no pictures it didn't happen
Ride report expected.

Got the itch

Hey guys, just found this thread and I'm dying to go on a trip. Are there any fly fishermen out there down to make a trip to Beavers Bend?

Maybe a bit unrelated, but it seems like a lot of airplane guys have motorcycles. I'm interested in getting my private pilots license. I've taken ground school (a couple years ago) in Missouri, but now that I have a decent/stable income, I'd like to look into flying.

Seems like google turns up some weird results and I can't tell what's legit, what's a good value, and what's just bogus nonsense.

Anyone have any tips on where to go, or who to talk to?

Look up Wiley Post Airport... You can probably find a good instructor there...

I took my flying lessons back in the 70's....

Brought home a new 2011 Husaberg FE 390 yesterday.

That means my 2008 WR250R Yamaha needs to go. I just didn't ride it the way I thought I would, it's a sweet bike and truly dual purpose but I seemed to trailer it too much so decided I didn't need the street capability much.

Anyone interested in a really good deal speak up before Tuesday.

It will show up in the flea market tomorrow when I wash it and get pictures.

Damn it Bill, I blew my bike buying budget for this year! I've been looking at the WR250Rs after getting worked over by the XR650R on the trails. I'm starting to think that less is more. I don't want to get rid of the 650R, but it would be nice to have a smaller bike as an option.

Good luck with the sale.

Ajax Kawasaki, OKC.
I was looking for tires and saw it sitting over there just looking like it wanted out.
Went back three days in a row before I took mercy on it and brought it home.
