That's not just any road....that's Push Mountain....might be my favorite road in the state.

Although....the gravel in the right hand turns going out is a bit irritating. You have to rein it back quite a bit to make sure you stay in the track. Someday someone will go sweep that road and it will be awesome again.

Yall have fun..... work pulled me out of town on Wednesday getting me back yesterday morning. I almost went up last night but the weather didn't look ideal and someone scheduled a Friday meeting for me so I just decided it was too much effort to try and make it this time.

I'm going to have to just take the time off and block it out if I'm ever going to make it.

Looks like I won't make it Saturday.

Hope you guys get some riding in Saturday morning before the afternoon rain.

What a great German dinner with some of the nicest guys in Arkansas! I have enjoyed myself immensely. I hope to see everyone soon. Cal, oh yeah, the song I remembered now by Mr. Stevens was Moonshadow.



Ride safe!

Re: TWT 2018 Fall Rally - Eureka Springs - NOW WITH DIRT!!

You're absolutely right about the gravel in the turns. The big trucks going though there have spread the rocks across the road, and they act like marbles. Fortunately there are many curves that are clear, but you can't always tell ahead of time, so caution is a must. The pavement on the northern portion of the road is also needing some attention. It's getting choppy and rough, probably overdue for a resurface.

MO125/AR125 is as spectacular as always. Still my favorite road, just wish it was a longer.

We road on some roads today west of Branson that are probably spectacular, but couldn't enjoy them to the fullest due to the rain.

Sorry to hear you've been under the weather, Mike. Probably best to sit this one out. The weather probably would have made you worse.

There's also State Line BBQ, but it's a 20 minute drive from here. Reviews look good.

Re: TWT 2018 Fall Rally - Eureka Springs - NOW WITH DIRT!!

Glad to see you guys had a good ride Friday despite the rain. We had a wet drive home.

Looking at the radar this morning, Saturday is looking pretty nasty

We had a fantastic dual sport ride on Thursday, even with the flat, which is all part of the adventure. Even with the sunshine Daniel was cold most of the day. It is hard finding good gear small enough to fit him, especially rain gear. In warmer weather he might be okay, but rain and 50 F would have been a bad situation for him. As disappointing as it was for all of us, heading home was the right choice. As badly as he wanted to ride again, even Daniel reluctantly agreed.

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
