DB '11

Why "Dirtbag" Run? Well, we'll probably look like a bunch of dirtbags the next day, lol!  For the most part it'll be a guys only run, not that the fairer sex isn't welcome, but sometimes guys just need a chance to cut loose and be lewd, crude, and socially unacceptable. If the significant others can put up with that, come on out. Oh, I forgot to mention, tent camping or under the stars, no campers, no RV's, no hotels, no showers(unless a swim in the lake counts), no chase vehicles, no A/C, just a weekend party in the middle of nowhere. It doesn't matter what you ride, just ride the damn thing. Plan on being self-sufficient, if you want to get with your buddies and split loads, equipment, etc, that's on you. No fee's (other than possible camp ground or shelter fees)no vendors, no t-shirts. BYO, beer, food, tents, bags, whatever. Leave the attitudes and ego's at home, their not welcome, it's about having a good time with good friends.

Date- TBA, but it'll be within the next 3 months.

Place- TBA, right now we're looking at southwest Kansas

We'll roll out on a Saturday morning, ride about 300 miles, party, pass out, and head for home on Sunday.

Details for DB '11 coming soon!

Hangin' in KC

We decided to spend the weekend with our son Jimmy in KC, unfortunately his girlfriend, Paige, had to work and missed out on the festivities. After having done our road trip on the Drifter, I was itching to put some miles on my sporty, so after a little convincing my wife agreed to ride on the sporty for the weekend. It's not a long ride to Jimmy's, about 170 miles, so once we got there he took us to the Westport Flea Market for some of the best burgers I've ever had.

The next stop is one of our favorite hang outs in KC, Fric-n-Fracs, a cool laid back bar and grill.

Road Trip '11, pt 10

The last leg, kind of a bummer, I could ride like this everyday if I could afford it, lol! After the Lake of the Ozarks, we headed to Lenexa, Kansas to spend a couple days with our son Jimmy and his girlfriend Paige. Lots of barley pop and good times were had. As an added bonus Jimmy and Paige got the iron head out and rode the last 170 miles home with us! We also spent this weekend together and had a blast!

So now we're home, what an incredible trip! Seeing family and friends, spending time with my wife, seeing places I've never seen, and just being in the wind. This was the rejuvenation that I needed. I had a gentleman tell me at one point a trip like that will either inspire you and ruin you. I agree, I am inspired! I can't wait to hit the road again! 11 states, 20 days off from work, 3300 miles, I can't wait to do it again!

Road Trip '11, pt 9

We could have made Lenexa in one day from Marion, Illinois where we stayed the night before, but we've got a few days left so we head for the Lake of the Ozarks!
