I got a late start today around 130pm but I met Jeff and two of his buddies down in Bixby, MO. My trip down there wasn't the most scenic. 44 west to Cuba but once on 19, the trip turned fantastic. Nice rolling hills and curves with the re-occurring smells of horse and cow manure. Taking a left turn at some one horse town I never heard of, Cherryville (no cherries that I saw to be popped!) Then onto 49, wow what a ride. Finally got to Bixby, just in time to watch the HD guys loading the Buells in the truck. So after hanging out a bit with Jeff and his buddies it was time to saddle up and hit the road. Well to save time and I can't recall any road that we traveled, I'll just call them Holy crap I'm about to vomit roads. Not that I have enough experience to ride the curves like those three, I did what I could safely. It was fun except when I thought I was about to crash and burn but low and behold the good Ol' Duc pulled me through the curve as my stomach pitted with some pucker factor. I would say it was very good experience even though I was pushing myself a lil harder than normal. Though the best part was when the group got pulled over for no reason except for the Deputy wanted to yell at some bikers. (I still don't see how passing a van and clearing the on-coming Deputy by at least a quarter-mile means pulling out in front of him.) So anyway I showed him my shiny lil piece of metal that i carry and his attitude changed dramatically. (Still need to cash in the free beer). Then a nice smooth ride all the way home with nothing making me puke. Once I got home I checked the trip, put 260.3 miles on today. Plus yesterday's ride I have a two day total of 530 miles. Wow What A Ride!!!!
