On a local forum, I have this thread going. That forum is about dead now so I'll post it here and add to it as I go.

There is no report, no commentary, just pictures. These are from November, 2017 to present. Most are in Oklahoma, some in Arkansas, and a few in Kansas.

Yup. +1000

AND!!! It may very well add many hundreds of miles of new roads to ride. Plus you'll become a better rider too as you learn to manage traction.

I'm trying to help you out here. Tell her to go to work to replace the car expense. If she works then tell her to get a part time weekend job for the replacement money.   Bigok   Then go Honda shopping.     Bigsmile

If it's not posted and looks interesting, I go in. I've been chewed out a couple times but no cops ever involved. I just play dumb/lost/thought it was a public road/just looking for fishing holes, etc. It's rarely an issue.
