Somebody asked if somebody was going from the Dallas-Fort Worth area to Clinton on another board. I direct them to this board. I will be leaving at approximately 6 AM from Fort Worth and do a high-speed burn East on 30 to New Boston, Tx.. At that point I’ll be traveling north through smaller roads to avoid interstate and eventually will make it up the pig trail Hwy 23 north to Highway 16. I will to take Highway 16 East across the Ozark National Forest to Clinton. You’re more than welcome to come with me but just know that it’s going to be a very long day. Probably closer to about 500 miles.

Yes, that was me. "Hi COG riders. I'm planning my First ride with the group to Arkansas. Working on getting my days off & preparing for the ride. Is anyone riding through DFW Texas area on the way up to Clinton? Maybe we can meet up & ride together. Also, a question for you Experienced Tourers; what should I bring? I'll have my bad/ wet weather riding gear, emergency roadside tools etc. Any other suggestions?"

I just sent you  PM. It basically says you’re more than welcome to come with me. I’m doing a leisurely but efficient ride up there Friday. See the post before this one for the route. Feel free to text me so we can meet up. 817-532-2647

It really sounds as if you have everything organized. I know it’s going to be wet on Saturday and Sunday so good deal with the rain gear. Just make sure you have your motorcycle endorsement on your license, current insurance, current registration and the bike has to be mechanically in great shape.

Hwy 21N & 123N are both good options for getting to 16. Just to the east a bit, out of Clarksville.

As of now the local 7 day forecast is looking good, Thurs., Fri., & Sat., sunny & highs 72 -75* with 20% chance of rain Sat.

WE did this ride last year in November and it got COLD. The week before it was not COLD.
  So, I suggest cold weather gear backup..

Ride safe, Ted

Riding tips from Ted? Now thats funny!  :rotflmao:

My best tip is don't take tips from Ted if you want to improve.  :)

Hope you can make it.  :motonoises:

Hey!  That is not nice.  I like following Ted.  It keeps me from doing anything stupid and I am able to stay warm by riding in the bubble of warm air created by his after-burners.  See y'all soon, looks as if it might be a little wet again.

A dad's 90th birthday is much bigger than riding, enjoy it! You can ride anytime.

Had a great time meeting other COG members. Especially enjoyed  the chili and friendship at Cliff's.

It was a good 2 days of riding, with even better people & weather. I even met 6 or 8 new people, hope to run into them again someday.  :) Maybe they'll be back for HMR#7 IF it happens.  :hum:

We had a total of 22, including 1 daughter & a son in law.

Thanks to everyone coming down to hang out & eat chili. Hopefully everyone had plenty to eat. Also thanks to Jim & Ted for putting this event together.

Here is a few more pictures. Group photo is a little fuzzy.

Made it home about noon Sunday. Had a great time riding the twisties with good folks. As Cliff mentioned we had 22 participants. The weather was absolutely perfect. A huge thanks to everyone who came to ride and visit with us. The hotel worked out great also. And thank you to Cliff and Jimmie for the chili supper on Saturday night.

Extra thanks to "Jimmie", Cliff, and family for hosting the entire group for cooking up, some of her fine Chili..
Glad everyone came and looking forward to doing it again.

Arrived home late last night.  All is ok.  I had a wonderful time, there are so many fabulous roads up there one begins to think they have crashed and gone to biker's heaven.  I am looking forward to Horseshoe Mountain this coming spring.  Be safe Guys!

I have to agree with everyone, the rally was great.  Thanks to Jim & Ted for putting it together and to Cliff & Jimmy for preparing and hosting the chili supper on Saturday.  Good to see old friends and meet new ones.  See y'all next time.

Just noticed that in the group photo, "Dan Cooper" is hiding his face behind me.
Dan is a sneaky Devil...

Ride safe, Ted
"Dan" has to keep his level 24 top secret clearance in tact.

Dogs got to hunt, DB Coopers got to hide.
Even though I did not make it, thanks to those that set it up.
