Thanks Allkid for organizing this. Troy, thanks again for setting up the BBQ. It was fun time had by all I think.

I had a great time riding with Phil and Bob, they are funny & I learned a bunch (like always take the road no one else uses, you can still get lost with two gpses, I still panic at big mudholes, and white lining in little towns is fun). You know its been good when you get up the last day feeling beat and you got 300 miles to go, and for once I did not want to ride to work on a Monday. Did Tuesday tho.

BTW There is a neat biker coffee shop right on 62 in Eureka Springs. Roscoes - Soon as I pulled in it goes from 5 bikes and fills up with 350s, 400s and vstroms, sport tour bikes, mopeds and what not. Instant biker party. A retired couple had just returned from the winter in Mexico on their vstroms(?), posers, shoppers ("I want to buy x"), and some returning from Texas. The roads around there are great and I will be back to Eureka. Like Latteland in the mountains.

I noticed in my video (
), when Kramer went fast into the slick Frog Bayou crossing, I said, "Randy went into that way too fast in my opinion." I'm not used to Randy on that Husky, and father & son wore similar colors. Sorry for the mistake! SLOW DOWN, Kramer! :lol:

Some of you may recall a conversation/argument about whether the rear wheel on my 2007 KTM 450 EXC had a snap ring holding one of the rear bearings in. I think one person even suggested that the stock does but that the upgrade kits have larger bearings and thus you no longer use the clip.

Bingo. Mine had the snap ring, but now that I've installed the All Balls upgrade kit, the snap ring is no more.

I hope your wheel does not fall off.

I am confident that the swingarm that the wheel is bolted between will prevent the wheel from falling off. Thank you for your concern. :D

How many Husky's were on this ride? None of them overheated? :D

Looks like it was a fun ride, wish I could have gone.
