Went to the Arkansas 500 Dual-Sport Ride last weekend... Was a BLAST!!!!!!!!!

Changed the tires on my F650GS twin and headed out...

There were a couple of big 1200 GS's and G650GS's....

One fellow on a 1200 GS a vet from Arkansas was one riding MO-FO... that dude could ride those dirt roads like he was a little bitty dirt bike...

Anyway... There were a lot of street legal dirt bikes and a few KLRs... but the whole event was open to all and fun as can be... the slow folks road with the slow group and the fast crazy KTM guys rode with the fast group... I was the only one on a Twin Motor GS... and an F650 to boot... but i kept up with the big boys on dirt bikes and earned my wings...

Fully recommend it for next year... The organizer couldn't have been a nicer guy.... I have a video and some pics... i didn't take many pics of the rough stuff because i was holding on for dear life... kept the shiny side up the whole time... My GoPro ran out of juice but have already figured out how to keep everything charged up for the next time... or i would have some really, really awesome video... any way... here you go!
