I'm up for a rosy sniffing pace. Anyone else? Saturday and/or Sunday.

DREAMS? you wanna post up the usual routine here? I have a rehearsal Saturday morning, and then potentially sunday, but I don't know what time yet. Worst case, I could meet up with a group somewhere.

My suggestion, instead of going to Eureka, we head out to Huntsville or Jasper. I know a nice quaint place to eat in Hunstville, but I've never been to Jasper. I'm sure there is something similar. That way, we avoid all the Hwy 62 traffic. Just a thought.

Ok,

I have rehearsal on Saturday, and I usually get out on or before 1pm. But Sunday I'm open.

Airbox, isn't Branson a little far? how many miles?

I meant a different time for the Branson trip. Maybe summer or sometime where we have some free time to plan it. It's about an hour and a half ride, ill need to get a new seat for the CBR. :fiddy

Check out www.actionhonda.net

I have never been on one but my friends who have gone in the past say its basically just a big group ride. Its by no means a only honda thing.
I honestly may or may not be going. I may end up working in the ER saturday morning.

EDIT: This ride is for Sunday, 4/9... not 3/whateveriputupthere.

Alright, here is my suggestion:

8am muster at Kennedy's Coffee (or some other place), leave at 8:30, 8:45 sharp.

Hwy 12 to 127 cutoff to Clifty.
Go South on 23/127 and go thru Huntsville
Go East on 74 (Lost Highway) and take the 21 cuttoff
Go North on 43 and connect back to 74
head East to Jasper for lunch!

Return option 1:
same way we came

Return option 2:
From Jasper, Hwy 7 South
grab 16 West until we get to Fayetteville.

or

hook up 23 North going back thru Huntsville
take the 12/127 loop home.

not sure how long it will take, but if we get started early, we'll definitely be ready to call it a day.

bring water and snacks, you'll need it. this is a fairly aggressive loop length wise, and might take us all day. but it will be well worth it in the end.

so get yer lazy asses up and lets ride!

I've been on a couple poker runs and they are alot of fun. They usually are not limited to just a specific manufacturer. I ran one from Wheeler Kawasaki here in Fort Smith and out of 150 bikes I was 1 of 3 sportbikes. I like to do things a little different so I ran the route backwards. 80% of the riders went one way and the rest of us went the other, it was fun.
I'll be up in Fayettville on Sat and probably Sun. but I'm riding 2 up. Taking 71 north to Fayettville for lunch with her around 4pm or so. You guys will probably be done by then but there will be lots of other occassions I can meet up with you guys.
Ride safe.

man, i hope you guys were getting laid, cuz thats about the only thing better than my ride today.

240 miles almost on the money, and some of the most beautiful roads I've ever seen. for those of you who haven't hit hwy 16 east of 23, you must my child... you MUST! make nothing else a priority until you do that. then you can say you have lived.

Hooked up with Dreams late late late in the day, making the home stretch quite fun. Dreams you're a good dood. i like your attitude brother. that guy who tagged along was a little quick for the street. it was good to see you kept your head about you. i'll ride with you anytime.

as for the rest of you... well, i don't have to say it.

Likewise man, and it was good to finally meet you. Keep me informed with the next weekend ride, that way I can plan to stay in (or at least get home early) saturday night so I can get up for Sunday. LOL
