I'm on the fence.

If I don't go, would someone please corner someone from ADV and reason with them about the fairness of my lifetime ban?  >:(

I meant to make this last year......I will be there this year, and will probably be dragging a few 690 riders from the Houston area to be my wing men......Any riding in Arkansas is a good time.....Just not the same as Big-Bend, but better in it's own way.....
.
See you there.

what coincidences!  I'm 55, have a 2014 690 and a 06 525 EXC!  You guys make my day.  I'm probably going to sell the EXC as the 690 does everything I need.
No coincidences.....There's a number of "Baby Boomers" on here that are alot faster than the Young ones on here, give us credit for........
I'm 58yrs Old...14' 690R.....Kaw KX500 smoker....Husky 610 WXC....Then, when I really want to scare myself...Kaw Ninja ZX14R
.
So, welcome to the "Over the Hill Gang"..............Over the Hill,..because, we're waiting for the Younguns to get up the Hill............Bring it, you little Ankle Bitters !!

It's not the arrow that kills you, it's the Indian.
This dude would definitely outride me on his DR, but he'd crush me if he were riding a 690.
Hey, give yourself more credit......You're good at Creek Crossings....

Story-Time / The First Annual, 2014....Around Big-Bend on 690s
« on: November 18, 2014, 09:44:23 am »
Big Bend in the Fall......What can I say
.
This trip came about due to the Arctic freeze that gripped the country, mid Nov. We were scheduled to explore the Arkansas back woods.....Not happening ( 25* sleet n icy rain )....One of the group ( Dane ) suggested, well since we had the time off, lets head as far south as the Border Patrol will allow us.....The "Polar Vortex" just missed the edge of the Big-Bend parks....Giving us "PERFECT" weather.....

Wolfman has a new tank bag for 2014....."Blackhawk".....The Enduro bag was too small and the map holder was a Joke....Wolfman listened and came out with a bag that is the perfect size for the 690....
