Early February Ride

If the weather cooperates, Donnieontheroad will be coming down for a few days of riding some of Arkansas's finest roads, next week (February 6-10). The actual dates depend on when the weather window falls, so our days of riding will vary accordingly.

If anyone would like to join us for a day or more, let us know.

Hopefully, I can talk Donnie into posting up a few pics and/or comments a time or two to share our adventures.

It's a go

Ok .. tired of checking the weather .... unless there's a tornado in my path between Tennessee and Arkansas on Monday I'll be pulling out some time that morning and heading your way.

Hide the women and children for the next few days and keep them well back from the roads lol ...

Aaaaaahhhh the first ride of the new year ...

Early February Ride

Here are some pictures and today's route


Today's route .... 300 miles

Roads were wet to start the day

Temps in the 70's by 10:30 a.m.

Absolutely gorgeous day for being the middle of winter.

This little guy was riding with another Winger that just happened to be in Jasper same time we were. Had to get a picture of this dog this guy travels with on his Goldwing. You know this dog was happy to trade in his window in a cage for going totally free on the back of a Goldwing lol.
