    Not trying to piss on anybody’s Cheerios but just a reminder that Arkansas requires masks to enter any public business. Most have became very relaxed on this but having a just in case is a good idea.

          Thanks for the heads up. That's similar to our restrictions here in Iowa. Can't wait to see everyone!

              I thought it would be longer. It's 8 hours from the Iowa City area. My buddy stores his enclosed trailer at my place so I'm using it. But it only fits one bike. I had another one I was going to get ready to haul two but FastJohnny isn't making the trip this year.

              That is weird. I googled Mason City to Eureka Springs and Iowa City to ES and it's a half hour difference. I must have better roads, it's interstate all the way for me.

            Not going to able to make it to Eureka Springs... Fairing still not painted but mostly the rear wheel collar didn't come in yesterday or today like it was supposed to....so bike still on jackstands. I did get new go pro mount on with cable tether and led driving lights in HD buckets mounted on Cobra light bar. Got the rear Michelin 130 CIII Touring reversed and mounted up front with Ride On balancer/sealer and the Dunlop winter car tire mounted on read cast wheel with Dyna beads (run flat tire). I will get fairing this weekend per painter and wore up speakers and amp and mount up. Looking for a trip mid October now lol

              " I did get new go pro mount on with cable tether " what is this cable tether? I have mine mounted on the bars that I swap back and forth from my bicycles.

              Why can't you take a spacer off one of the other bikes?

            Hey, I have been to ES a couple times with all of you. Face masks are not going to hurt the bulk of us . Unfortunately, (for me) my ugly mug will not make it again this year. I seem to have a knack for either firing or losing one mechanic just prior to the M&G. I am down 2 this year and we have been having to work 6 day weeks with both 1st and 2nd shift running extended hours. Somebody please send me pictures throughout so'st I can live vicariously though you guys! You guys owe me that much, the weather looks about perfect, and we all know if I were coming it would be cold and rainy!

              MBK I understand completely. Just canned a couple yesterday and the replacements both had issues come up and had to leave early. I’m just in awe over the work ethic I see these days.

                Cable to ensure if mount breaks free of crash bar camera case/camera remains attached. I have short braided steel coated cable I looped around so that if mount breaks the camera case/camera will drop a few inches and get caught on highway peg area and won't hit the road.

                  LDOFDC...

                  Part number different between years... Using 2005 cast wheels on 2000 bike.... Other collar from 2000 spoke bike is different part number. Not sure how much it would matter but don't want to tear into red bike and then get right part and tear into purple bike again and red bike.... I have vacation scheduled off October 17-21 anyways... I'll ride somewhere then!

                        It was yet another great time with friends, old and new. And NO RAIN for once! I logged 1400 miles over the 4 days. She’s comfortably approaching 94K now.


                        Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

                          Good to finally meet you JD. Glad you made it home with no weather issues.

                        Made it back to Iowa. Wonderful time with some great folks. A huge Thank You to AR. Hillbilly for leading us around the countryside.

                        With the great weather Friday I felt bad for taking the truck and trailer. But with the crazy winds today I was kind of glad I did.

                        Already looking forward to the 2021 event.

                          tlr200, glad I could help. It was far better to bring it and have you put it to use then sit on a shelf waiting to be recycled here.

                        We already reserved our spot for next year. We couldn't believe how packed the campground was this year.
                        ​​​​ Sorry, I wasn't in charge of pictures this year.

                          Karen and I made it in safely a couple hours ago. 10 hours driveway to driveway. Brad IS absolutely correct...the swirling, gusty winds today were a fright!! Especially heading north...
                          Other than that, what a wonderful trip, great friends, rides, and food, not sure how it could have been better...Phil ever brought along HotRod from Arizona. Our humble thanks to everyone.

                          Reservations set for next year!
                          When they say you're getting older...remember, that's better than the alturnative!

                            It was great to see you two again. Phil was just full of surprises this year. But then what's new there LOL.
