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!

I can leave earlier as long as it's not butt-crack of dawn early!

I'm a bartender @ Chili's in Bixby and have to close Friday night so I'm gonna need at least a few hours sleep if I'm gonna be able to keep up!! :biggrin5:

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.

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 :weapons_90:

Just as a frame of reference for me, what's the timetable like on this ride? If we were able to leave the QT around 9'ish, what would be the ETA for Eureka Springs?

Had a great time today, albeit I am sore as hell now. I rode with keith and Chris and got schooled by Keith on the twisties. He was two up and on a big ass BWM of some sort. I realized today I know nothing about going through a turn, but big compliments to Kieth for giving me pointers. I'll get there one day.

Yeah it was definitely a fun day! Sorry I had to turn back a little early, but such is life. On my way back through towards SW City, there was zero traffic in front of me and I was able to really push it a little bit harder. Got back down to the Cherokee turnpike and made great time back to Bixby. We will definitely have to do it again!!
