Wait a minute. :wary: May 27 is on a Monday. What's the deal? :wary:
because the departure date is from a official TWT event on a saturday and the bonus destination is over 800 miles from there and I doubt anyone here can cover that distance going through the Talimena scenic drive :rider: in one day. the bonus destination is on a monday.

I get it now. It's not an extra pie run. It's an extended pie run. :rider: I'll have to try and get some time off for this. Is the Talinena scenic route a street or dual sport ride?

On the long distance run will everyone be camping? Is there a close by area or park? Or Focus Frenzy is this one you normally do the motel/hotel thing? Have you been there before FF? Drew

Bonus Run can have camping. Leon likes hotels but if there are enough of us I will camping some. Last years it was easer to share rooms.

I was thinking about this place http://www.thesimplelifecampground.com/ nice and close to all the action and Robbinsville.

I have never done the dragon, sort of a bucket list thing like Pie Town NM was last year, and riding to the top of Pikes Peak.

Talimena scenic drive was more of a joke as it runs between northwest Arkansas and Oklahoma and while reported to be a good ride it would definatly be going out of the way on a route from Cushing to Robbinsville.

probably pack along my camping gear.

Hey dude,
the last time I was on the scenic drive it was pavement. A really super ride into Mena Ar. But I think I'll take 30 to to 40 to 24 to 75 and then which ever way you want to go. Once in the mountains, it's a free for all..:rofl:

the normal time is 11:00am, Crockett traditionaly is noon and the bonus one is generaly what we agree on depends on how close we get the day before. this will be just the second time a bonus run was done and this one is a extention of a regular one.

I am wondering if we will ever have anyone else make all 12 besides me?? Hizzo was close.

I like the place FF picked. How long are you guys staying there? I may still an extra day or two before heading to Virgina to see my little girl.

If you are looking for someone to ride with, I'll be leaving from the SA area for this months pie run. You are welcome to tag along.

Man, the west guys get nothing again! I know not many folks showed up to the Amarillo one a few years back but that was an enjoyable ride report. Almost good enough to make me ride to a pie run there. :D

Yeah thanks Leon, looks good, well except for the weird distribution of northern stops in colder months and southern ones in warmer months. Somehow that just seems to be a bit backward :lol2:.

TWT, thanks for the offer, but I would just hold you up. I ride a TU250X, modern old school is what I call it. Most people I've ridden with seem to always want to do 80+mph and she just won't do that. People call me crazy for making road trips on her at all, but for some reason I just really love it. I am in the market for bike #2 which will easily be my long haul bike, just don't know if I will have it by the first run. I will see you there!

Ohh I likey! However, I do believe I will miss st hallows pie for rolling bones. For 2014, we need to find pie near Hamilton. A few more bikes in that area should really put grins on locals faces. :D

Now to get my drz in supermotard mode for some of these


JRW, how dare you claim such a thing... shipman rides a tu250 and I think he runs it faster than a urinal

Please don't take that as personal criticism because I can't imagine the work it is to plan all this out. I was simply pointing out that there seems to be nothing out that way, and whatever needs to happen should happen to get some stuff out that way. If it's the west folks suggesting their favorite local places, then so be it.

Oh yea, lol, look who's pictures it was I was remembering. :rofl:

I can ride the Sat before Easter too but moving it to the week before might be an option for those that have family or other obligations on that weekend.

Okay, well I stand corrected as evidently I will not be the only one attending on a 250! Hope the first run to Hico is somewhat warm as it will be about a 6hr round trip for me!
