Thumbs up Oklahoma ride this weekend! (Oct 25)

I posted this in the other thread, but wanted to make it more visible!

I am looking to go for a decent ride on Saturday morning, probably from 10-11 am till 2 or 3 pm. I'm looking for some decent roads to hit up in the Northeastern area of the state. Anyone on any bike is invited to join me, as I've only been a solo rider thus far.

I will hold off on any additional details until I figure out if anyone else is on board or not.

We won't have weather like this for much longer so lets enjoy it!

Just think how bad the average driver is, and then realize that half of them are worse than that.

Kieth,

I'll be there at 9:00 am or I will call if not. I road out to Eureka Springs last Saturday. A buddy and I just headed out 412 scenic to 540 north and then took 62 into Eureka Springs. Awesome scenery on 62. I need to get a warmer riding jacket for Saturday. It's supppose to be chilly that morning.

Talking Returning back to Tulsa

I normally try and return on Hwy 16, All the way back to Siloam Springs, this keeps you off the slab and in the corners. catch 412 4 lane for a few miles and then back on 412 scenic, until it returns to 412 4 lane. No tolls and as fast as the 4 lane due to traffic.............JMO Kieth
