Re: AHR 2018 - Better Get Ready!!

We had planned to leave on Sunday but we're going to have a rain snow mix.


We'll see how it looks on Monday.


Forecast calls for a little snow Sunday night and a low of 26, then we have sun up here and 50% chance of rain in Cuba Mo. with a high of 47.
If it's not slick Monday morning we may leave then.

Re: AHR 2018 - Better Get Ready!!

Cleaning the chain this past Friday and notice a screw dead center of the rear tire. Run the tire over to Eurocycles of Tampa and had a new Mic pilot 4 gt put on, same as before. Trying to get MOA to reimburse through their tire replacement policy, up to $250.00. We'll see how that goes, the tire had about 8k on it but good tread, seemed good for the AHR.

Headed out Tuesday, lay over near Birmingham then over to Jasper on Wednsday, no iron butt thing coming, maybe going home

You should be ok if the tire had more than 2/32" thread left.


b. TIRE REPLACEMENT: You will be reimbursed for the reasonable costs you incur to replace a tire up to $250 per tire (inclusive of mounting, balancing and taxes), (maximum of two tires per contract year), only if a tire covered by this Agreement becomes unrepairable due to damage caused by a road hazard. This coverage is valid through the tread life of a tire (for motorcycles, 2/32" or less is excluded) and replacement will be made with a tire of like kind and quality to the original tire

Re: AHR 2018 - Better Get Ready!!

Steve has been rained out for a few days. They may get back in the fields Monday or Tuesday.
They have 4 more days to go, so it looks like he's out for this year.

Heard from Pete and he's still planning to attend.
He said he may not get power back for another month.

Steve, farming is tough. I heard though, that you were out standing in the field.

Yeah, we've been getting a play-by-play over the last couple of weeks. Just too much rain this year. I don't know why Barbie can't sub for him.

Won't be the same without my riding buddy.

Re: AHR 2018 - Better Get Ready!!

FYI, it was mid 50's and drizzle most of the day here in north central Oklahoma. Then at 4:30, the wind gusted from the NW at about 20 mph and the temperature dropped 10 degrees in 30 minutes! It is our first real "chill" of the fall.

Nonetheless, the weather in Jasper for the AHR looks to be nice, even if a bit cool. Blanket women warning on the weather channel, though, for the firepit area in the evenings.

Re: AHR 2018 - Better Get Ready!!

Anybody know Craig Beavers? He needs to call Mrs. Gordon to reserve a room. She only has 2 rooms left in the upper section. Give her a call so we can all be together. You don't want to be down in the low rent section with whatever riff-raff is down there!!!

Craig, give her a call!

Gary & I hit the road earlier today & we’re camping out on Rich Mountain at the little campground I found way back when, with the Putt-Putt Ghost Course. Supposed to get down to around 40 degrees today night.

Gary & I made it to my place around 5pm. He'll head out after the morning rush hour.

Had a great time despite the rain day. Was still able to get in a fair amount of great riding. And I got my Angry Hornet too!

Re: AHR 2018 - Better Get Ready!!

Tyson and Cathy safely home. After a nice stop at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville. The temporary exhibit of contemporary Native American art was outstanding. Lunch in the restaurant was excellent for hillbillys like us.

Great rally. Even the "rain delay" was fun with you guys. See you all soon

News flash for Jeff (Breaking! Bombshell! Huge! Awesome!): Too late, now, Jeff. By simple observation, I'd say it has already happened.

Had a nice sunny day for our ride home today.
45 when leaving Arkansas this morning, high of 71, and 68 when we arrived in Iowa.

Glad people are checking in safe and sound. Especially glad you all had a nice ride home.

See you around!

Re: AHR 2018 - Better Get Ready!!

Finally made it home last night, really great meeting everyone and dinning, riding and BSing!

It was cold all the way until I-75. once in FLA I had to rush into a rest stop and shed all my layers and back to shorts, shirt and mesh gear.

Thanks to all for making me feel welcomed, I hope to make other rallies now that I know ya all!

Ride safe!

Jim

It was nice to meet you, Jim. Kind of a crazy year, with the rain delay and all.

Re: AHR 2018 - Better Get Ready!!

Jim, glad you enjoyed it (and us). Some people have the exact opposite reaction! I can't imagine! "I'm shocked. Shocked! Shocked, I tell you!"

Hope to see you at another rally soon.

Tyson (and Cathy)

The Hillbilly is a great rally, probably my favorite one right now. I am also a fan of the KY rally. But, for proximity to you Jim don't forget the DGR and this year I hope to plan it when there isn't a bad weather event! While they are similar in many aspects, they all have their individual flavor and I highly recommend going to them all!

Re: AHR 2018 - Better Get Ready!!

Joe, you were missed this year. It was a great rally, but would have been even better with you there. Maybe next year?! Cathy's think we might see you in Kentucky next August just to tune-up.

Tyson (and Miss Cathy, of course!)

Re: AHR 2018 - Better Get Ready!!

Pete, GREAT camera work. I especially like the second picture of (Jim?).

Glad you were able to stay longer this year. Fun conversations and BS fueled by ethanol. That little dark grey bike of yours is cute! Be sure to be on the lookout for the Polizei when you ride it!

Here's proof a liberal and conservative can get along if it's cold and they need to share a little body heat

Pete is really pretty quick with those hands. I'm sure he said he was only trying to keep them warm.
