What a BEAUTIFUL day of riding!
We all woke up this Sunday morning wanting a better day of riding. The morning was not as cool as the previous two days. It was still cool, but it looked to be a wonderful day. Today's group will not be a group as many of the gang have other plans for the day. Larry & Lynda will sleep in and head back to Dallas, with Lynda in her boot. Richard & Jennifer have to head back to Dallas as Jennifer had plans for the evening. Richard Swim and David were headed back to Dallas the long way as they needed to be back on Monday morning. That left Jamie & I and Jackie & Alta. We would be heading up into MI, dropping down into Mountain Home and then doing Push Mountain, AR16 and 123. We would be spending the night in Ozark.
Jamie loves when I take pics of her getting ready to ride in the morning. Nice longjohns..whoo hoo!
Jennifer enjoying her breakfast
This was Jennifer's first trip of this distance and she did great! We also learned that Richard loves the new Jessica Simpson CD..
GPS after Richard got home.
We thought this was funny, check out Richards little video.
Check out all of Richards pictures here.
This was a great day of riding. We did a nice little loop in MO, the colors were nice. I think we were a week too early or late, but it was still nice to see some of the colors. We enjoyed the morning. It was a wonderful ride. We stopped in Lead Hill for a cup of coffee. We then headed down to one of our favorite places.. Push Mountain.
Jackie & Alta were leading today.
This is a nice bridge pic
Jamie got a nice shot over her shoulder as we were leaving the bridge.

welcome to the big city
Nice place to build a house, looks peaceful.
We did Push Mountain and then jumped on 123. This has to be one of the best stretches of roads anywhere. It is awesome. We stopped in Sand Gap, to grab a drink. A guy on a Goldwing came up behind us. He looked at our back tires, and noticed that the heat had made them bubble up some. He just looked at all of us and said "you all ride to fast" we started to laugh. They were nice people that lived in the Clarksville area. must be nice living that close to there wonderful roads.
Taking a break after some great riding.
we took pictures of Jackie when we could catch up to him.. he is really smooth and fast! It was fun to watch.
not a bad way to spend the day.

The bikes at Sand Gap
Warm sunny day of riding.
heading into the light
We arrived in Ozark around 5:30PM. It was a wonderful day. The roads were great! The bikes ran wonderful and we did not have any issues. It was a glorious day to ride a motorcycle. We ate at a nice little Mexican place and just hung out and watched the baseball game when we got back to the room. I wish I could just run this day as a loop in my life, it was awesome.
Colorful place to eat dinner
This house was behind the hotel, I liked the look of the rocks and the house
