I’ve decided to trailer all the way instead of part way. Thanks.
I was going to make some kind of joke about the drive up there being so much like West Texas that I don't blame you for trailering :giveup: but then I realized that I have a designated driver with a car for a roommate. Forget about worrying about what time the shuttle bus quits running. Happy birthday to me! :lol2:

Seriously, Its getting close and I'm ready to by there yesterday.

Anybody else arriving Wednesday night?

Ms Pacman will be driving her Expedition and towing the officially-unofficial-we're-not-calling-it-a-recovery-trailer-trailer-knock-on-wood.

I'll be riding. :rider:

"We know Steve". Yes I'll be the designated driver, but, you must wear that new helmet when I drive because I can be a wild man behind the wheel and cops are few in Eureka Springs. I might even put on some disco music for you...:eek2::lol2:

It may be a bit soon to check in with the weatherman, but I couldn't resist.

The good news is they're currently saying sunshine for both of our riding days. :sun: The not-so-good news is that it'll top out at 85*F. Looks like a time for the ventilated 2-piece instead of the Stitch.

A heads up: I'm taking all of my cooking stuff in the trailer. Not sure what I'll do Tuesday or Wednesday nights but Thursday will be smoked pork tenderloin with a couple of sides. Friday will be boiled shrimp, sausage, corn, and taters. If anyone wants in for any night, I need to know as soon as you can. I'll have everything but drinks.

$14 a person and you won't leave hungry.

We are staying at the Swiss Holiday at 62 & 23 right around the corner from this group.

texxter said:
Wayne, I will be riding from Plano and would be interested in keeping you company. We could meet in or around Greenville if we can decide a on meeting time and place. For example, Brookshire's on 6410 Wesley St, Greenville, TX 75402. I can be waiting for you there.

Regarding groups, I am also for smaller groups - definitely no more than 10, and smaller would be preferable. I am not a Group 1 rider, but I don't like to stop too often, so I guess I probably belong in Group 2.

Thanks again for organizing everything!
Pacman, I'd like to join the group at The Brookshire's in Greenville at 8AM if you and Texxter don't object. I'd call myself a Group 2 rider.

Texxter, I'm at Frankford and the Tollway, so maybe you'll see me along the way to Greenville. I'll be on a black Super Tenere with a white helmet and a jacket with high-viz orange.

Guys, slight change of plans for me. I'm going to trailer up to Talihina, have lunch at the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge, then ride the rest of the way into ES from there. I've decided to skip the slog through the Metromess and flatlands of North Texas. Since Ms Pacman is driving with the trailer, may as well take advantage of it for that part of the trip.

I'm still planning to eat lunch at Queen Hilhelmina Lodge. I plan to unload in Talihina, ride the Skyway, grab lunch, then roll out for ES. Should be rolling into the Lodge between 12:30 and 1:00 if anyone wants to meet for lunch.

Hi Wayne - sounds like a good plan to me. I may see you on the road. If I find myself a the Lodge between 12:30 and 1:00 pm I will stop by to have lunch or at least say hello. Have a safe trip!

Well sorry y'all, we're having to bail, dad's not doing well. I've canceled the room at the hotel, don't think there's anything else left outstanding. Hope y'all have a great time. We're packing up and going to leave Yellville :(

Yes it was a cold morning. Became overcast around Talihena where I had breakfast at the Hateful Hussy. The sun came out as soon as I crossed over I-40 which is also where the roads become awesome. 103 to 215 over to the Pig Trail and 23 all the way to E. S. Really fun!

Silverbullet and I just got back from Arkansas and Missuori this afternoon. We both had a little over 2000 miles. I wish I could have stayed up there and ride with some of y'all. I had a flat and a bent rim pretty much right off the bat . Had to go to a Walmart and slime the tire plus we had to keep putting air in it anout every hour and a half. Still had a great time though.

I plan to shoot a ton, and will definitely post as many as possible. Hopefully we can do this again soon and we'll all ride together!

JMZ, sorry to hear about your wheel, but it looks like you got your money's worth out of that tire!

Rexter, I'm not planning to chow with you guys (the missus made dinner plans for us), but I will stop by and visit. I haven't seen any of the ZRX crowd in a long time, and somehow have missed Bud at least 2 times and we never ended up meeting. Hope to see you all there.

When I got this bike a few months ago, I told my my family and friends that if they ever see it on a trailer call the cops, cuz it's been stolen.



Never say never.......:rofl:

Wayne, what's really ironic is that I stopped in Little Rock on Monday evening to deliver the remains of your ZRX to the guy that bought it from me. I bought it from Tim and parted it.

Yup. I got it a year and a half ago. Sold a few bits and then the rest to a guy from GA. Ya know, I also bought a Yammy XT from you a long time ago.
