Ewa's last day at work is April 24th. We have the apt til May. Hmmn - ride from Cliffs to NYC and put Betty, Ewa and everything else in a Uhaul after riding the NE a bit?

I think I'm thinking clearly here. Now to convince her this is all her idea  :truce:  ;D

I'm happy to hear you're keeping the HMR alive Cliff!

I want to ride the C14 up since a lot of the riding is new to me once I get out of FL, but I would love to try some dual-sport.

Any places near you do daily dual-sport rentals Cliff?  On the other hand...would starting out with a bunch of 'weathered dual-sport COGgers' not be the best dual-sport introduction for me?? :))

Iff'n it's any consolation, there are a boatload of really good paved roads around. Try to grab an extra coupla days for playing.

The Butler map for the Ozarks is almost a joke in itself. More roads labeled as G2(good roads with little traffic and twisty) than you can count. The riding over in Arkansas borders on ridiculous for a fun time. Tons of great roads, little Police in observance, and did I say tons of great roads?


At this point dual sporting is in the infancy of planning. But, seeing that I have more miles dual sporting a C10 than most GSs sitting in front of Starbucks, it will probably be interesting. Even toying with the idea of rolling over to New Mexico and running a couple days of the NMBDR before Cliff's. But that's all written in the sand for now.

More to follow on this.

Shawn, there's no bike rentals near here. At least not that I know of. Like Steve & Randy said, we have many good roads around here. Some have virtually zero traffic & as far as the law goes, just ride, you'll seldom see one. I'll mention one, hwy. 341 aka Push Mountain road. No traffic, no LEO's, basically a road track, ride as fast as you dare. Plenty of youtube videos out there.

Since this will all be new to you I wouldn't worry about the dual sport. Plenty to keep you occupied on the 14.

I would like to make it back - missed the the last couple of years. I'd probably dual sport as well.  Got it on the calendar Cliff.  - Jeff

I am thinking hard about making this rally for the first time.  It is being held the same weekend as my 50th high school reunion.

Not like I was the life of the party in high school anyway.  We had 650 in our graduating class, I knew about 10 of them   ;D

I will know soon.

Not trying to persuade you from missing your class reunion Jerry. I'll just point out a few highlights for attending this event. You'll know more than 10 people, you'll be riding & hanging out by the fire.

You're the life of most COG events you attend   :allhail:!

Pretty excited about all the interest in this event so far, seeing as how so early still.

I would have made it last year but it conflicted with a pre-Mother's Day surprise for the wifey at Lake of the Ozarks put on by daughters and daughter in law and the resurrection of the Johnston brothers annual fishing, drinking, and now off road vehicle extravaganza.  :motonoises: :beerchug:

He's talking about the the Titan II Broken Arrow event in Damascus:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980_Damascus_Titan_missile_explosion

"It's laying here right on the ground, Sir!"

Good thing the PALs stopped the 9 MT warhead from detonating, or there would be a big crater taking up part of US 65.
