    I was going to finsh with some closeups of just how mud-splattered parts of The BatBike got but you've all seen that before on other bikes. To get form the main road to Ken's place is about 300 yards off-pavement. It was muddy the whole weekend. I didn't go down in the mud, thanks to The BatBikes inner-GS shining through.

    All in all a great weekend escape.

    Great report Veg, nice pictures. I probably would have gotten in trouble picking at the old bikes in there

    Thanks for a cool, interesting report. As nice as the riding and scenery were, it seems the people were the highlight.

    Agreed. While I really enjoyed the pictures, I think I liked "meeting" the people even more.

    "Inner GS..." I like that!

    Thanks for the report, I really enjoyed the up-close look at Oklahoma. I've only been through there on I-40, and once through the grasslands in the NW corner. The Grasslands definitely were nicer!

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Yeah the people are great! These three I spent the weekend with are wonderful friends and in fact it did come up in Saturday Night's conversation that I was so delightfully surprised at the great benefits that came with the motorcycle when I started riding, the fabulous COMMUNITY it brought me into. Everybody got a little wistful grin when I said that if it weren't for that neglected old K-bike coming into my life four years ago, I would not have been sitting in that room Saturday Night.

    Glad you all liked it. The highlight of this weekend's riding I think will be taking the bike down to the car wash- it's still all splattered up!

    wind

    Great report.
    I caught the same winds on sunday travelling on my way to Phoenix, I could not use 6th gear, didn't have enough torque to get over 95 unless I lowered the windscreen.

    After I posted Loraz offered to ride in front and cut the wind next time but I have been around him when he is cutting the wind and decided to pass.

    Ouch. That's going to leave a mark.

    Hey Dan, I got a new license plate this year so you have something different to read.
