I should have called this the 'Hey Bigdog! We're going to Arkansas and You're Going To Show Us Around Ride'. I had an outstanding time. Sure I crashed a lot but the GS is a pretty tough bike and only a few things broke. It's pretty wild when you are riding along following someone and the next thing you know your on the other side of the state with no idea of how you got there. I've been studying my DeLorme and kinda can see where we went.
So Friday AM I'm up at 4:00 the bike is packed and growing impatient.
Thinking I've got plenty of time to ride before I meet everyone in Bixby by 8, I take a few not so paved roads.
