Title: Queen Wilhelmina RTE November 19th
Post by: Jim Snyder on October 19, 2016, 07:33:54 pm
Ok we are having a ride to Queen Wilhelmina/Talihina Skyway in Arkansas & Oklahoma on Saturday November 19th.
The route will start in New Boston Tx at the Bostonian motel on Hwy 8 in New Boston Texas. There will be a stops in DeQueen Ark and Mena for anyone who wants to join in along the way. The lunch stop will be at the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge. I have contacted the Bostonian Inn in New Boston at I-30 & Hwy 8 and they have singles for $45 and doubles for $50 for anyone wanting to come up on Friday night. Their number is (903)628-5561.  The return route will have drop off points on the return side for those that need to head back towards the Dallas area. The plan is for kickstands up at 9 am Saturday morning. The ride is about 295 miles total. This is a very relaxing ride route with country roads and twisties. And lunch and the view at the Lodge is awesome. Let me know if ya'll are interested. PM me or email diamondj304@msn.com. My cell is (903) 918-4014.

For those traveling some distance after the ride,
    Consider getting a room at the Bostonian Inn in New Boston for Sat night.
   (We may not be back to New Boston area until late in the day..)
   (and mebbe we could squeeze in a short ride Sun morning before everyone departs for home.

So, who's interested in going??

Ride safe, Ted

Post by: connie_rider on October 19, 2016, 09:25:11 pm
Thinking about my previous note, I had a thought to squeeze a few more miles.
I'm thinking, we'll probably need to stay somewhere on Sat night.
Sooooooooo,,,,,,,,,,,, (since we're gonna be there Sunday morning anyway)

What about,,, Kickstands up at 9 am Saturday morning. (New Boston)
                    Ride further North on Sat than originally planned, but, "do" (before dark) start south.
                    Ride south, but not all the way down to new Boston
                    Stay in a Motel on Sat night in Mena or somewhere North of Mena.
                    Travel home Sunday (259), starting from that Motel?

Thoughts?

Ride safe, Ted

Well...shucks...I don't think that much of a ride would be good for my C-10...since coming from Colorado (6600' elevation) to Arkansas (400' elevation)...the idle seems to have increased 400 rpm...makes me think it might be running leaner...and, I don't have time to do anything about it before the ride...

Maybe next time...

Sounds like a great time.  I'd love to make it, but I have a small mechanical malfunction.   :-\

I'll work at making the Wildflower though.

A few hours ago at the Tractos Supply getting bolts for a TV mount.  She's about 96% now.

CRocker, wish you could be there. But I do understand..

NOTE: Coming down in elevation, it "is" running leaner. (but it's probably closer to the correct mixture)

Question; Do you have stock jetting, or did you install smaller jetts?

If you have stock jetting; you "ARE" running rich in Colorado.

If you installed smaller jetting, (I agree) you might be a bit lean in Ark.
If so, you can decrease air by simply restricting air flow at the airbox intake port.

If you have the 2 minute Mod,,,, you already know how to do that.

Ride safe, Ted

Ok Ted and I will be headed to the Bostonian Inn Friday afternoon to spend the night. If anyone needs to holler
at us my cell # is (903) 918-4014. Looks like we will have about 10 to 12 riders as of right now. So whoever is
coming we will see ya'll Saturday morning. Be safe.
Saturday morning we will be making a stop in DeQueen at the Exxon on the corner of Ark 41/59 for a break and gas
stop if any of the Arkansas bunch would like to jump on board. We will also make a quick stop in Mena if anyone needs
fuel before we go over the mountain. Lets do this !!!

We'll miss you, Jim. Very sorry you can't make it. We'll do some "freeze riding" for you! Ha! It's going to be a chilly weekend. I am so ready for a change from the Texas blast furnace. We hit 86ºF on Wednesday. Yuck! Well, the humidity was down, so it was really an OK day. I'm just really ready for fall and winter temps for a change.

Wow, that sounds like a great group, Jim. I had no idea that many folks are going. I'm aiming to get to my hotel in Texarkana by about 4:00 PM. I'll see you guys for dinner later on. Give me a holler when you get to New Boston.

Ok 7 brave riders embarked this morning from New Boston Tx in sub freezing temperatures (well it was 39 degrees) and now we are stuffing our faces at the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge buffet. We picked up an 8th rider (Cliff met us at the lodge) so the adventure continues. Details at 11.
