Everyone is certainly welcome, it was my pleasure! Just simply a matter of riding some of my favorite rodes in Arkansas, and having some new friends to hang out with while doing it.
Now when we talk about a spirited paced ride we will all be on the same page Lol
Man that was some kind of fun, at times I pushed it pretty hard and could never get bunbun dove, and glory out of my mirror for very long!
Yep, next year boys, if you don't want to get whupped by a girl, don't ride with dove, bunbun has taught her well!
This was a great group of guys and gals to ride with!
I was impressed with the riding abilities everyone had, its kinda of rare to have this many people on a ride and not one squid in the bunch.
A big hats off to (I hope I get this right) Dave, the dude on the BMW that went down on 23 and broke his mirror off. This guy goes down doing 45+, slides into the ditch, gets back up throws some duct tape on the mirror and rides the rest of the day with no problems or complaints.
bunbun, dove, jetpilot, glory, hickey, mcgyver, mxvet, stormgal, atypical, 1moreroad, dredhead, doug and garry, I know there were others I just cant remember the names.  It was so nice meeting everyone and I'm looking forward to Colorado

They always waited for me without complaint on Tuesday morning.  It was great.  I could ride my own pace and never feel like I was in danger of getting left behind permanently!   Bigok

Sprocket, Dove and I had an excellent time and absolutely LOVED the rides.  Perfect pace, fantastic routes and an all around fabulous time.  MUCH appreciated for the time!  Thanks for the compliments, but we couldn't have done it without an outstanding leader Smile  We had a blast on both days and had a great time riding with everyone -- Dave, I hope that buffs out Sad  I can't remember the name of the guy on the new Connie that had blown his rear suspension, but I hope you get that fixed up!

Glory, Sprocket and MacGuyver-- special thanks to y'all and it was great riding with ya!

Well, not as much danger.  But make no mistake, you and Krismark each set an exciting pace and it was fun work keeping up.   Thumbsup

This is the second time in as many months that I have had the fortunate occasion to ride with/follow Sprocket through the twistes in AR.  Both were outstanding routes, fun pace, and his leadership and concern for the entire group is  to be commended  Bigok   If he wasn't already married and so damn goofy, I might just change my ways and marry him.

Thanx Sprocket, once again, you done great!  Good luck on your CO ride and hopefully our paths cross again soon,
Mark
