Jay is a class act  Thumbsup


NO, he has a nice family, rides on and off road on a dual sport but he is a lousy dirt biker!

I didn't mean lousy as in "skill level". I meant lousy as in type of person. You know, a "biker"!!                 Bigsmile




I should look around and find some old pictures of me when I was young, good looking, in shape and holding one of my trophies from MX racing.

5-07-2016. Collinsville to Ramona (Oklahoma) iron bridge tour.

I picked out some old iron bridges north of Tulsa to ride to. This was primarily a country road ride but all the roads were paved.

As we were heading out, we noticed a kite flying festival in Tulsa and stopped to watch.





The bridge over Horsepen Creek on old Highway 169, built 1930. The highway has been rerouted but the bridges remain open.



About a mile east is the bridge over the Caney River, built 1930.



On a side road after the bridge. The joke's on them, I'm riding a DR.



Lacy Creek bridge, built 1930.



This is why they call this part of the state "Green Country."



A feeble attempt at a wheelie.



Saunders Creek bridge, built 1918.



A barn built around a silo. Date of construction unknown.



An abandoned bridge on Double Creek. I couldn't find any info on it. Probably built ca. 1930 (seems to have been a banner year around here for bridge builders) and abandoned pre-1995.









Double Creek bridge on old Highway 75, built ca. 1930.



Central School Building, built 1908. Now occupied by the Caney Valley Board of Education. Ramona, OK.



Buck Creek bridge, built 1915, bypassed 2009.











Someone got the plaque.



Lisa always carries dog biscuits for just such an emergency.

Usually, I'll pick a general location. Look at Google Earth for interesting roads and things or towns to see. See what others have noted by their pic's in the area. Pick out four or five places to go that are several miles apart each. Choose what appears to be the most interesting route between them. See what I find in between. I try to make each ride a one-day ride around 100-120 miles. 120 miles is about when I hit reserve. If Lisa doesn't go, I'll ride a little further or longer or a more difficult route.

I like things like old bridges, old schools, old churches, old buildings, old railroads, small towns, lakes, trails, forest roads, gravel roads, and country folk.

Lisa likes dogs, horses, cows, chickens, pigs, forests, flowers, ice cream, and for some strange reason, shallow water crossings. She likes to hold her feet up and ride through the water.

She prefers riding the street bikes. I prefer the dual-sport bikes.

5-21-2016. Our first two-up ride on my new-to-me 2015 Yamaha FJ-09.

We rode around the Ft. Gibson Lake and Illinois River areas.

Ft. Gibson Dam.



The Illinois River, a favorite amongst the rafting and kayaking crowd.



Along the banks of the Illinois. Cool, clean, refreshing water.





We stopped for lunch at Sam and Ella's Chicken Palace in Tahlequah. It's probably Lisa's favorite pizza joint. Trivial factoid: Carrie Underwood used to work here.



An exotic animal farm outside of Ft. Gibson. They had a sign up offering reward for information on who killed one of their bison.







We stopped at an old, closed down country store where we had stopped back when we were first dating.

2008:



2016:



We cruised the back roads to Lake Eucha.





Some of these pic's are blurry due to excessive speed.









I got passed in a corner by one of these bikes. Luckily for me, there was no video.



Notice the skeleton...



This is the Lindsey Mayes bridge over Grand River between Locust Grove and Pryor (the town I grew up in.) Built in 1910, bypassed in 1979. I remember driving over this when I was in high school.



A flood in December of last year washed one of the remaining spans into the river.





No wheelie pic's on this bike yet so here's a selfie.

Jay, I was wearing that same design Scorpion helmet when I hit a deer back in 2014. Landed on my head, literally, after going over the bars. Had to retire it but it crashed really well.

It's about due for a replacement. I may go ahead and keep it for the rest of this year. The Scorpions don't fit my head shape very well - I have to wear a helmet liner. I hope I don't get to crash test it.

I'll probably go back to an HJC next time.

5-22-2016. We went to watch my son-in-law and his dad race cross country.



My grandson Trevor in his wagon alongside my prego daughter Kendall.



Mitch and his dad were racing the team class.



Mitch got the holeshot - of course, he was on a two-stoke Honda.



Mitch taking a water break while his dad turns some laps.



Waiting for his next round.



His dad on the track.





Mitch seized his bike and had to push it about an eighth mile back to the pits. He finished the race on his dad's bike. They still finished top five.



Trevor with his other grandpa.



"If I had used this oil, it wouldn't have seized."



Since you've missed all the abandoned buildings lately, we stopped in Jennings and Terlton on the way home for some pic's.









No wheelies this time so how about some more grandson pic's?
