The only marginal Arkansas road that I rode, was {drumroll} "your driveway".
The rest were great.

Looking forward to seeing all you knuckleheads again😘

Ideer 🙉;
If {Ironbutt} Al comes, can we make "him" do a "non"-rain dance?
{It might not work, but would be funny as heck}.
Tell him (after he dances),, he can lead us on the rides...

Ride safe, Ted

I am throwing all caution into the wind on this one. I registered today, not knowing how the weather will be here in 3-4 weeks. But I have ridden out on snow before. I think this event will fill up. Worst case, if I cannot make it, I will "scalp" my spot to some "Texan a little slow on the draw".
The last time I was at the Final Fling, 2-3 years ago. Froze my azz off. The only time I have worn my electric heated jacket.
Once again, thank you Burnette family.

I just looked, 39 registered, only one opening left.

Testimony to a well executed event and good folks. Thanks Cliff, Jimmy, and family and helpers for making this an awesome event, year after year.

Okay Thursday night dinner will be chilli, served with crackers & shredded cheese. Jimmie will start making batches of it this weekend & freezing.

We'll work out the volunteer situation once you arrive. Biggest thing will be Friday, Saturday morning breakfast cooks. Sunday is grab & go since so many leave out early.

There will be quite a few here on Wed., so we can order in pizza or you're on your own.

Looks as if this event has filled all 40 spots available in just 20 days. Hated to cut attendance back, but seemed in the best interest of all due the virus.

See y'all here!

My house is in Mountain Home, just 10 miles from Push Mountain road, and my home and workshop will be open to anyone who wants to stop by during the rally or needs assistance. I'm going to try to attend the rally on Friday night, but will have to return home on Saturday.

Well shucks! Looks like I missed it. After a long delay due to hardware problems on my 'puter I tried to register for the event but was advised it was full. Well maybe next time unless I can sneak in without Cliff or Ted catching me. And I just got a brand new bike yesterday. Rats!!!
Y'all have fun.

We hated to cut back on attendance but felt it was the best thing to do under the current circumstances. We want everybody to feel safe.

There is a waiting list for this event, so if you're registered & can't come let us know. That will allow someone else a opportunity, fee can be worked out between you.

There will be extra a hand washing station along with plenty of sanitizer & more tables so everyone can spread out to their liking.

Don't forget your face covering, you'll need while going through the food line!

Thinking about what we're bringing to the rally this year.
Jim and I plan to use his Motorcycle Trailer for camping and will not be using "Trump Tower".
So, the legendary "Trump Tower" is available if anyone wants a bigger tent to sleep in?
Let me know if you want to use it, and I'll add it to my pack up.

Ride safe, Ted

We are thinking about hosting a lunch stop at my house on either Friday or Saturday, but I'll need a head count to make sure we have enough food. My house is located about 10 miles from Push Mountain Rd, so you could come up and ride Push Mountain and then head over to Mountain Home for lunch. Let me know if anyone is interested in doing this.

Fred, {Jim and} I would be interested as we ride together.
Generally we ride with a group of about 5.
Would need to know the day so we can schedule our route that day.
Been wanting to see your new house and shop..

Ride safe, Ted

Let's shoot for Friday. I'll have a simple lunch ready for about 20 people or until we run out of food. Will most likely be subway sandwiches, chips, and drinks or something similar.

Tom, if you are talking to me, you are welcome to ride with us. I have a route that I usually do up to Mountain Home that is a decent ride.

Just be warned, Mountain Home has at least 3 cops for every resident. The state hwy patrol are located here, as well as county sheriffs office, local police etc. So watch your speed coming into town and the surrounding areas.

How many people are planning to stay at the motel? My camping days are well in the rear view mirror.

Jim:
When I made my reservations for the motel she said there were a few others staying there. I have since canceled mine due to the imposed COVID restrictions and not being able to register for the event. Going to New Mexico to ride the mountains. Much much closer to me anyway. Bought a 2020 FJR1300ES and just finished the break-in. It would be a shame not to let it run!

Have Fun!

Hey Cliff, I have to cancel.
My sister has tested positive for covid19.
Her symptoms began Oct6th. Minor flue like symptoms for 3 days.
Then loss of smell and taste for 3 days......
So she got tested Wednesday.
Got the positive results yesterday.
She's fine now.

I have not been around my sister since September 20th.
But, she was at our parents last Sunday. I was at our parents last Wednesday.
Best to play it safe.

I have 2 reservations. 1 member, 1 guest.
I believe you have a waiting list.
Do you want to pass me to the first in line, or I can cancel tomorrow with the $10 fee.

Please advise.
Thanks
Bob

Since Bob is having to regretfully cancel it will open two spots for the waiting list. I can't access it, but am trying to get it so I can see who's on it that might fill his spots.

I would like to fill these spots in the order the list was made if possible, provided I get the list. However if you'd like to attend contact ONOBob & work out the registration fee between y'all.

Hey Cliff,

We really should honor the waitlist, which I just sent you in an email. Once we have the next two individuals confirmed, I can help you move them from the waitlist to the registration list.

Cheers!

emails have been to those on the waiting list in the order that they were put on it. No responses yet, so possibly 2 last minute spots left.

Looks like it's going to be good weather. I've got my 😷 and getting ready for a great weekend.
Weather is looking great, slightly above normal temperatures & only 30% chance of rain Friday.
Hi Fred,

I'd like to come for lunch, if there's still room. Thanks!
I'll get a little more accurate head count for Fred during Thurs. night dinner. Some will not see his offer on the forum.


Grocery shopping starts today, got the pasture mowed yesterday, still gotta get the shop cleaned up & pick up a few more tables.

See y'all this week!

For all the Wednesday arrivals, as you know there will be no breakfast Thursday morning. Everything you'll need be here for your use should you want to make your own breakfast. We can handle having coffee for ya.
