Max 6-7 hrs with stops and lunch. It will be about a 200 mile day. we can shorten it up by taking the hwy there and back.

9.12 ride

I think at least 250 miles down and back. No gas between Grubville and Potosi on the way down. Plan ahead. See everyone Sat. @ 9 a.m. in Eureka.

:( That's the saddest thing I think I've ever heard. If we promise not to do this, then I'm in for this one.

Only thing I'll say is we will probably need to exercise restraint on P and DD based on recent events there. The cops are growing intolerant as they have had to airlift several riders over the last couple months, including 3 guys from the ZX10R group that went off one after the other when I was down there 2 weeks ago. Thankfully, I opted out of riding with that group. It was clear they were not 1)familiar with the roads and 2)not wearing what I would consider proper gear.

A quick phone call with a friend in Jeff. City, MO state troopers doubling to tripling enforcement on weekends in DD-P area (whole Mark Twain national forest/rural Eastern MO). Target bikes and sports cars.:mad:

Shouldn't be a problem but we should be aware.

Sorry abut typing, iPhone

9.12 ride

greetings all,

If Rob still feels bad in the a.m., I can do the lead thing. Rob gave me the route sheets that you can tape to your tank. No looking at the sheet while you are moving or you will crash. Maybe, I won't give them out. . .
See everyone at QT on 109 & I-44 at 9 a.m. Lunch at the Bixby general store.

Just got back to the house. It was great meeting everyone! Awesome ride, perfect weather, and I still need a nap after that lunch! Even the pace was appreciated by my worried wife;)

Ciao!
