2021 Spring Fling Registration

A group of us are going to Clinton Arkansas for a Meet and Eat.
(Eat) There's a heck of a good Lunch Truck across the street from the Motel.
Err; I think we'll be there {meeting and eating} for 3 days. (April 30 thru May 2)
Anybody want to meet us there?

Ride safe, Ted

PS: {As Clinton is in the middle of some of our favorite Arkansas roads, we may even ride a bit while we're there.. <evil grin>

err; Knowing COGgers and how frugal they are; We're working on the lower end of the Motel Scale.
Last time, we stayed at a Super 8 by Wyndham. (nice/clean/inexpensive)
We're currently working on a discount for the group.
Not as nice as a Best Western, but it's next door to a Walmart so we can walk/stagger to our favorite store.

Ride safe, Ted

Hotel booked, registered for the event and I look forward to seeing everybody.
So I guess this means you're OK?
After you snuck off from the Wildflower like a fart in the night wind, I was concerned.
I'm glad all is well with you. 👍 :)

fyi; Cliff offered to (mebbe/possibly) do a meet and eat (at his house) on Saturday night.
Jim and I are in contact with him and his boss/wife now. (she'll make the final decision)

NOTE: If we do this, we'll have cars/trucks available to haul everyone there/back.
,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,{so you can drink a few cool ones and everyone will be safe}

If interested, let us know.

Ride safe, Ted

Wish you could be there too.

Update; Just got off the phone with Cliff.
He and I worked out the details for a Burger/Hot Dog Burn on Saturday night.
We're planning to haul everyone to Cliff's:
(So, If anyone decides to consume a beer or 3, we can transport everyone back to the Motel safely).

By the way;
Jim's buying the burgers. (Don't tell him I sed that, as I haven't quite talked him into it [yet]). "shhhhhhh"
Y'all will have to bring your own beer, and mebbe 1 for Jim.

Ride safe, Ted

So I will be heading down from Mountain Home to Clinton. Haven’t seen you guys in awhile. A couple of years ago I traded the Connie in on an H2 SX so will be riding that. Look forward to seeing you guys.

Hey there Craig. Love the video! Thanks for sharing it. Ride looks like it was a hoot.
If you don't mind me asking, does bike (the one with the camera attached to it) have a re-flashed ECU or is it stock?

Thx, AB

Texasdevops902, {I hate to say that Craig did anything good} but his video is a pretty good representation of the roads in Arkansas.
NOTE: The camera tends to make the turns look like big/wide/sweepers.
Look closely and you'll see that many of them have suggested speeds of 30 mph.
So, their tighter than the video looks. {ie; Fun..}

The rider spacing and engine RPM's you hear, are a good indication of how our group will be riding.
ie; "Smoothing" thru a turn, not blasting thru..

Ride safe, Ted

Ok, I admit it. I'm old and slow. (and most of us haven't didn't do a lot of riding last year)

NOTE: If it's too rainy, we can set around and talk about Speedy, {err, I mean satxrider} and/or; Jim/Cliff/Craig/etc/etc/etc...
(ie; EVERYONE, except Ted)

Ride safe, Ted

If you let Ted ride the H2 SX, get a $25K deposit............. :ROFLMAO:

Just kidding......I have my eyes on a H2 SX SE but Pamela would complain of the seat.

Not, a problem. I'll write a check.. :p

(Craig) Not a problem.
Buy Pamela her own seat, and leave it in the truck..
{Don't tell her I sed that }

Ride safe, Ted {Glad I could help}

Yea two up would be rough. For what I do around Mountain Home 200-300 mile day max, it’s perfect. I’ve got the BMW K 1600 for two up, long distance rides.
