JFR Run 2012!

After things not working out well for a JFR(Just Fucking Ride)run last year, we had a hell of a good one this year!! Just to fill in the blanks, JFR, is a group of family, brothers, and friends that try to get together once a year for a long weekend run. Last year life happened and the run didn't, this year we more than made up for it. This year was special for me because 2 of my closest friends, guys that I truly consider my brothers, were both able to go. Dan and Bill have been a part of my life for the last 15 years, through the best of times and the worst of times they have always been there for me and me for them, the truest of friends, brothers. The icing on the cake was Bill's dad, Big Bill, was able to go as well. It was the 1st time I've had the privilege of hanging out with him. He's one of the grey beards that has "been there, done that", hangin' with him was an education and an honor. This year we headed south and based in Eureka Springs, Arkansas and stayed at the Riders Rest Motel, a biker only motel. If you've never ridden in the Ozarks you are truly missing out. The roads are very well maintained, the scenery incredible, and the twisties awesome! While there are so many awesome roads to ride we chose the main ones this time. The Arkansas Toothpick(highway 16), The Arkansas Dragon(highway 123), Scenic 7 Biway(highway 7), The Ozark Highlands(highway 21), and the Pig Trail(highway 23). The pictures aren't in any specific order, so just enjoy them for what they are!
