yep, that is the section I was thinking about........that is crf250 territory.

BTW: I dont know what corner you keep taking people down, but next time I ride with you, I am staying away from THAT corner.......you must have put some bad voodoo motor mojo on that corner LOL.

Yeah misterk, I don't want any part of that either. I plan to ride and not push my 600 pound beast which usually rides on 90/10 tires. We used to have a cabin close to 3 Sticks back when I didn't own a motorcycle. The wife and I used to drive on the part I'm thinking about riding on in August, in a 2wd long bed Ford p/u with a 300 six-cylinder with a 5 spd on the floor and us just putting around in 1st and 2nd gear. Rumor has it that no one spilled their beer in the process. But I cannot confirm or deny this.

Just not wanting to get into single track or atv trail that I'm not comfortable with on the big bike! I'm not a negative guy, just want to come home like I get there, for everyone!!!! Looking forward to it. Rob
You are just the kind of guy I'm looking for.

I guess all I'm saying is that I'm willing to lead some like minded folks around that have some base experience like, but not even as great as yours. I'm sorry if I made it sound like I was going to try and climb Widowmaker but I suppose I'm little gun shy after seeing some of our newer friends go down on gravel roads.

Re: Arkansas Dual Sport Aug 24-26

2Wheelnut, I am very grateful that you were behind me the day I went down after that turn. I have no illusions of my lack of experience and weight of my bike now. Some people (myself included) need a hard reality check to get themselves straight (so to speak).

I want to try something like this, but I don't know that I would actually be up for it as it is kind of hard for me to stand and the bike and use the throttle/brake/clutch with my bars as low as they are. Again, knowing when not to do something is a good thing, but a hard lesson to teach to yourself.
