Epic, Tony!

Shame you have already gone through Springdale. I would have told you to keep an eye out for me ma's car (she lives there). It is easy to spot, it is most likely the only one in NW Arkansas that has an NMTA sticker in the window!

Seriously though, I've ridden around that area for years on my K100RS. Absolutely beautiful scenery and killer roads.

Ida thought you'd get more than 200 miles on a KLR tank, like 300?

Take your time -- big winds and some wet out here on the Mother Road. Tumbleweed just went through the yard. Gonna pull the barbecue into the greenhouse.

Say, you better get some more bungie cords for your BBQ!

Tony, it makes me happy to see that you are taking your time and seeing the sights along the way. I love traveling by motorcycle, but I've had to do so under a tight schedule sometimes and forgotten to look around.

Stay safe, and enjoy yourself.

I have returned to my house. Went solo looking for storms. Found them. I have lots to say and report. I may provide some bits but the ending is epic. There is a saga to be told. A very hard core finish. One you will never ever predict.

Great bike you found.

Really enjoying your report. This is what adventures are made of!!

When you get the time, can you tell me what brand the top box is? Will it fit a full face helmet?

Thanks

Bernie
