Congratulations Bob/Leslie!!

I really wanted to be there too.
But the storm pushed me back on getting the car ready for an upcoming Model T Ford Tour.
I'm curently polishing brass and doing repairs on a 105 year old car...

Ya'll have fun. Be safe guys!!!

Ride safe, Ted

Ted, since you couldn't make it I rode Push Mountain road for you when I got here. I attached the Go pro camera to the left fork leg right at the axle and got some cool video.

Ok just got home about an hour ago. Had an awesome weekend in north central Arkansas. This was one of the best riding weekends I have had in a while. Great to see some of my COG family as well. Rode Push Mountain Road 6 times in 3 days. Also got some great video with my GoPro on 341 and 9. Thanks to Butch and Marty for putting this ride on and for their cooking skills. Can't wait to go back. I think I will leave the bike on the trailer and go up to Queen Wilhelmina on Tuesday for a day ride. I think I have a twistie addiction !!!

I also got back about an hour or so ago, immediately missed the twisties and the campfire. Marty and Butch were on top of the cooking and the campfire the whole time. Thanks all for great time, especially George, who's always top notch.

Pamela and I arrived home about 1600 safe and sound.

Thanks to all of the riders who attended and scrubbed rubber off on some of Arkansas' premiere twisties.

Special thanks to Butch and Marty for the two great dinners and especially Butch, the Event Host.

NO RAIN AT A SOUTH CENTRAL EVENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A little late, but a shout out to Marty and Butch for a job well done. Arrived home ~1330 yesterday, and did find some rain about 20 miles from the house. Great to see everyone.

I don't know why you'd want to come and ride in Arkansas...all the roads are straight, flat, and full of potholes and gravel... ;)

I agree, Lets NOT tell everyone about our favorite riding area... {sed in a conspiratal voice}

Yupp, your right Mr CRocker.
       All the Arkansas roads "are" straight, flat, and full of potholes and gravel..   :-X

But, I'd be willing to ride those dull / boring roads if someone has a ride planned?

My problem is too many irons in the fire. I have 3 trips planned in the coming weeks...

Mebbe Nov 10-12?
How does everyone's schedule look?

Being from Houston, I'm a bit concerned it may be too cold??
We did the same ride last year, and it was ok, but the cold got our attention..

That would be the same weekend as the Swamp Scooter Rally in Lafayette, LA. Just sayin'. I'm out for either on that weekend.

I just got a hall pass for next weekend. (Oct 20 - 22/23)   :great:

Talked to Jim.
  We think we'd like to go up Friday morning, and stay near Russelville or Greenbrier, Ride Saturday in Cliff's area,
   then head home Sunday, or Monday..

Who's interested????
Post here or PM us and we can adjust as needed.
