We are off to Magazine Mountain for lunch and probably Mount Nebo for a long day of mountain riding.

More pics soon and hopefully some on the road video.

Great pics, Dave! Wish we could be there, maybe one of these years.

We went up a day early.

In AR. on our way to Springdale AR.



 



Eureka Springs unusual Staircase



Eureka Springs





Vintage Bike Group we mangled with







Unique ceiling fans at our breakfast meeting spot, Skyline Cafe



Jerry's Super that he let me ride. First time riding a Super and a nice ride it was, I could own one of these.



Taking a break



Hot Springs AR. and it's really a HOT spring



Coming from the side of the hill.



Scenic Byway closed due to High Water




The Scenic Byway was closed, this was suppose to be the way around never follow me or you end up going the adventure route like this. The rock road was much worst than what it shows and speeds were slow.





The Real reason why the scenic byway was closed.



V4 Jeff was kind enough to tote his techy bike from Austin up here just for people like me. If you did not ride it you missed a exciting treat! WOW, it was cool to ride, easy to maneuver, baffles were removed so a little loud when you got on it (for ones who don't understand, it's electric). Accelerating was spirited, not a bike in your garage that could keep up with this, makes you think the petroleum bikes are old slow technology.



During the Saturday night festivities, it poured, the only rain we saw. Took cover in Karen's newly acquired  Air stream.









V4 Jeff looking for leaks.

"Scenic Byway closed due to High Water"

Since you were on the bikes, nobody drank the water, correct?


Thanx for the picture share!

Okay all, for those of you who torrent, here's the torrent file for the Mena video I shot. The forum only accepts certain file types so I had to .zip it. Yes Devo fans, I zipped it good. It's seeded now, ready to roll. Be warned, it's 28.5GB (!) so it'll take a while to transfer. I'm pretty sure I did it right but let me know if it's not working and I'll see what's up. I'll try to keep 24/7 unlimited bandwidth on my end but if it's bogging me down I may have to drop it back during daytime hours (I'll leave it wide open Midnight to 6am regardless).

For those who don't torrent or don't want to set up a bit torrent client just to get these files, I'm looking for another location to host them. Google has a few options, I'll see if any of those fit. If anyone has any other ideas (or has 30GB of free space on a web or ftp server that they'd lend us), let me know.

I'll also be uploading a couple more greatest hits files to YouTube, I'll let you all know when those are available.

I dumped a bunch of pics I finally downloaded from my phone and camera into the MMAG15 bucket with the rest:

Some pretty good ones in there. I especially like the shots of Steve's bike (custom black/silver/orange) atop Mt. Nebo. Looks like a brochure photo...
