As ya'll may know, the Redfish and I will be heading West during this time, so we'll have to catch this one next Fall. I do have it on good authority that the St-Owners group is having an ArkanSTOC (Arkansas ST Owners) gathering of their own on the same weekend at none other than The Hub. So it should make for some great riding and playful ribbing around the campfire - I'll have to hear about it when I get back.
FWIW - I told the ST group (many of which are my friends) that if they wanted to ride with some Yammies, the FJR peeps would be happy to wait for them at the road changes. No point in floating their valves or anything trying to get those Hippos to keep up. That should get things going nicely. You can thank me later....
Ok Pants, we'll let the two of you slide this year. But next Fall - the two of you you are IN! And we expect RF to bring some RF for you to grill for the gang one night! You guys have a great time on your ride out West.
We'll try to be somewhat kind to your ST buddies.
Shoot Bandit, now I'm doubly bummed about missing SFO. I'm REALLY curious about what type of wimmen would marry you types.
Knowing this group, your curiosity is well understood.
I'm bummed I'm not going to be able to make it up your way for CFO. I really was looking forward to having a 10 day ride and linking the two gathering's together. Definitely next year!
BTW - with you not being there Craig who the hell is going to make our sig line logo for us?
IMPORTANT UPDATE ---- I just got off the phone with Debbie. She confirmed that the ST guys are going to invade The Hub the same weekend as well as a group of Goldwingers. So we are going to have Hondapadamus abound. That being said, she is nearing capacity so I went ahead and released all but one room, which I held for AJ. There are still a few rooms available
so if any one else is on the fence I highly encourage you to go ahead and call Debbie. She doesn't mind if you have to cancel but please let her know a couple of days in advance if you aren't going to make it.
Debbie also said that the onsite restaurant, Scooters, will be open Thursday evening for dinner serving their full menu, then both Friday and Saturday breakfast and dinner and then on Sunday morning for breakfast.
Also, Cornbread tells me that the Kawasaki Concourse COG group is going to be in Missouri that same weekend. We are going to try to arrange to meet them in Theodosia on US 160 on the shores of Bull Shoals Lake at Cookies - A Great Place to Eat.
We'll shoot for Saturday lunch on the Push Mountain / ferry loop ride.
