My wife and I had a very enjoyable ride up to Inola. The people were friendly, the food was good, and AHR appears to be a well-run operation simply in need of funding. We were happy to contribute.
I would like to thank the group of riders that caught up to us as we were heading south on 4220 RD towards HWY 51, after we left. My wife is not experienced on anything less than pristine pavement and was a bit nervous as she led south, slowly. Not a one of the much,much faster riders who caught up to us blew by her, but stayed back, patiently waiting until they hit HWY 51. Thanks, guys!

I was plotting something. I ended up riding it up that hill for him, so I could brag about it for the rest of my life

I tried it once before with Newner's KLR, but it didn't work too good

If you were on BMW's that was Shawnee Bill, Robocop and myself. We were in no hurry as Shawnee Bill's rear tire was on cord. I still can't believe he rode like a mad man all the way back to Shawnee on a rear tire with a cord strip instead of a chciken strip..

I have it good authority that he was riding on the good side of the tire.
Also I heard a new tire is already on the bike and it's ready to roll!

A note of thanks from Tamie (AHR founder)...
"Hi there,
Just wanted to say "thank you" again and let you know just how great your group of riders is! Funds and donated items totaled approx. $2,500!! How awesome is that? This really gives us a boost - financially and mentally - by relieving some of the pressure/stress and helps us continue to take care of these horses. We were also able to get a couple of contact numbers for hay sources from your members, which we will be getting in touch with this week and see what we can get arranged. We really appreciate all your work in getting this event organized and put together.

On a side note, someone left a woman's watch sitting on the shelf of the smoker - please ask if anyone is missing it :)

So where are all the other pictures? Post them here!!

A cool fire truck and Throttlemeister's new bike with a bale of hay. By the utilitarian designs I deducted that it's probably a new KLR in red:

What happened? I have been wondering that my self. After mass quantities of 3.2% thought provoking self medication, this is my theroy....I came upon a rocky up hill, watched everyone else go up it, now my turn. My eyes evaluate, rocks, uphill, off camber, and a faint path. Brain says, OK, no problem. Just go here and stay on the gas and try to miss the bigger rocks. Everybody part ready???? GO!!!
Start the climb, all good. ooops WHAT??? Forward momentum lost- excess gravity pulls the bike to the left. PANIC! Extend left leg to reach ground....FAIL! Put foot back on peg, brain says GAS IT, that's when the right wrist was sleeping. Gravity is winning and my leg will soon be crushed between the bike and the rocks. Abandon ship...mayday, mayday!! So I kick away from the bike, that is already about 90* to the horizon. My dog like reflexes kick in and I land flat on my back in the rocks. 100db noise escapes me. OUCH, or something like that. x-rays Friday.

Sounds like he may have a flaming case of the Newners.
