Smile Rich Mountain Rendezvous 2018 - Sept. 13-16

Where yall be? Little pond is close by (15ish miles) but off the beaten path. FWIW I got a rock puncture where around this spot in my rear tire. Totally worth a lunch trip though.

Had a sweet weekend! Can we move this two weeks deeper into fall and hope for cooler temps? Awesome support from Kat and Cynthia, and a very pretty spot!

Beautiful campsite, Riding AMGAP with my buddy Rick on his new Himalayan! Pizza in Heavener, beer at home on Rich Mountain and I think we did some good for CASA......

Another great RMR! Great job Kat and Cynthia.

Had a fun ride Saturday with Gary, Silva, Dan, Brenda, G, and Paul. Truly an international group!

Rode home with the same group except for G.

Only pic I took all weekend lol, perfect weekend

Re: Rich Mountain Rendezvous 2018 - Sept. 13-16 - IT'S TIME!!! w00t!

I had a great time. The weather was the best yet. My thanks go to the man with the Cushman who rode up and down the park road going thump...thump...thump. What a trip into my deep past before Hondas were imported and a one speed, automatic clutch was current tech. The ring-a-ding of 50cc two strokes tiddlers brought back many memories too. Cynthia, Kat, and so many others work incredibly hard getting this rally together. Ron, for probably the thirteenth year, was one of the regular breakfast cooks, Thomas fried about six dozen pieces of bacon, someone made a great pot of beans, and I think Donny made the great queso. The band was hilarious during the auction. Hint: don't ever raise your hand when the auctioneer asks if anyone is from Louisiana.

To really do this rally right, arrive Thursday by midday. I didn't and I lost out on several great rides. It's an incredible site for the dispersed tent camping. No mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers and great viewing of the sunrise, sunset, night stars, and the Harley groups rumbling by on the scenic loop. Just be sure and bring steel spike tent stakes. Aluminum bends easily. If your not well versed in the twisties, don't over cook a corner. Keep a good margin of safety. I survived with a panicked HARD pull on the Brembos. Fortunately, no one was in the opposite lane. Also, don't ride with a squared off front tire. It makes handling a bit weird. I think that's why my RT took another nap in Mena. Couldn't be that I'm such a poor rider that I can't keep it upright at low speed sharp turns. I may look into rib protection. The outstanding tiddler run organizer wears it for a good reason.

Already looking forward to next year.

I think next year I'll be trailering the TW200 and do 100 percent dirt. Maybe more of the Oklqhoma adv trail.

Re: Rich Mountain Rendezvous 2018 - Sept. 13-16

Took a quick look at my photos when I got home on Sunday. Only took a thousand, so that's good. I'll condense that down to about 150 and post the link here and Kat will get some on the RMR site.

Bad news is that I need to cull down and process those shots...hopefully tonight.

I remember shooting film and thinking about the cost of every photo: the actual cost of the film and processing. With digital, the cost is the time spent sorting, editing, organizing, sharing and storing the “free digital” photos you take.

I remember seeing some of your photos from this event and I’m looking forward to the next batch.

Re: Rich Mountain Rendezvous 2018 - Sept. 13-16

Thanks to all the volunteers coming together after weeks and months of prep and hard work to make this happen. It was a great experience and I don't see why I won't be back.

Everyone i met made me feel like I belonged at my first rally. Roads and campsite were beautiful as well.
