I am so tired of the on again off again spring. It's time to get away. All of you Arkies and Okies and anyone else, lets put our minds in gear and plan a day ride somewhere in between. What say you?

I'm in. Something in Eastern Oklahoma or Western Arkansas. Ft. Smith, Sallisaw or somewhere in that area.

I'm in,
my rally meet with the Rhinos ended before it even got started.
the clutch disappeared on my 1800 meaning impossible for me to load it up on the Tilt bed trailer safely, or be able to enjoy riding it.

So, found a servicing dealer in Tulsa and made an appointment for Tuesday at 0900 to have all the fluids flushed and renewed.

Clutch, brakes, and Anti-Freeze.
get it all done, and I will be able to ride this summer with y'all and then deliver the 1800 to my son in Georgia 'ready to ride', not something he will have to set down and service before he can ride it.

Charlie and Connie will have a new CanAm Spyder within a week or 10 days, so they should be able to join up with us.

no hijack , it is just something that needs to be done, and my knees don't get down, and back up again like they used to.

besides, it is too wet here today. I didn't even ask about shop rate, suspect between $85 to $100 / hour

Sounds good. Any suggestions as to a good eats place? I'm not real familiar with that area.

Here is a another version of RTE, or is it FlyToEat?

I sure do miss my Piper TriPacer w/ the Gull Wing Tips, and 160hp Lyc engine....
I could put that thing down in the roughest cow pastures with nary a worry.....
at the time, I lived on a ranch west of Stinnett, TX and landing fields like this one were normal.
In fact, my personal landing strip was a gravel road.
