Thanks ammca I'll give it a whirl. You might try googling SLAP Arkansas. Yearly ride close to White Rock Mountain put on by some NW Arkie good- natured hooligans.

I just got an invite to Fairfield Bay, Arkansas. (How come every time I see the word Arkansas I think of the movie Deliverance??) I digress. Buddy has a condo for a week at the end of March and told me to get my butt and Goldwing down there. Over to Google Maps. Wow, 3000km one way. Crazy thing is I'm actually thinking about it. Gotta find a covered trailer to haul the bike down.

Anyway welcome to the forum Arkansasians.

Indeed.

Glenn, from his defensive, reckless, vindictive and petulant practice of banning any and all who disagree with him, apparently harbors deep feelings of insecurity and inadequacy.

Then again, he may genuinely have lots to feel insecure and inadequate about.

Your scenario at .net isn't unique or even unusual, ammca. You're in good company!

Welcome to the forum, ammca. There are lots of good folks on here who are more than willing to offer advice and help you out if you have problems. I know they've certainly saved me my share of wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth while working on and planning certain projects.

was reading about that on the ADV Rider forum i think unless it was the .net forum. Sounds like a good time. They were talking about booking cabins and bunk rooms or camp spots for tents. I'd be doing the tent thing. I forget the dates. I will google it. I need to find some other on/off road folks. a lot of squids in AR or a boat load of cruisers. Ive seen a few good road bikers here that seem to know what thier doin, and dress for the mess.

to aamca: i have the full set of maps for the T.A.T. Hoping to do the entire affair this year. What time of year do you think is best? i am figuring a six week trip from TN. to OR and shipping the bike home from L.A. flying home. Last year an accident in May messed up my trip, but the weather last year made some aspects of the trail less than desirable.....I can go anytime,as I am retired and married to a great woman..Oh ya...welcome!

Masterlink, Do you have the roll charts too? I been looking at Sam Correra's web site about the TAT. pretty much says you need the roll charts and the maps together. Not sure on that. The southern route TN to OK is supposed to be 98 to 100% GPS'ed but not sure if that means regular North America Maps or some back country Topo GPS. His site is very informative and has some good info on when to go or what months or date ranges for traveling the different sections. You don't have anyone going with you? I wish I could do the whole thing but can't take that long off of work. So the southern section will be first since I can come home back into AR pretty easily. The southern route is not as knarly so I will cut my teeth on this. I have only ridden old two stroke dirt bikes growing up and they are a little lighter and never had gear strapped on it.

So do I use the image host link on here? or do i use an off site photo storage and upload them that way? like flickr or photobucket. never used those before. Also I am not opposed to pay for a membership to have these options within the forum but I have not seen anything on here for upgraded membership or anything. Id love to be able to post pics of any DIY project I do. I failed to do that on another forum when I did a couple cool projects on the bike and never documented with pics.

I saw an old thread about forum stickers. are they available somewhere anymore. This thread was OLD>>> so don't know if you all do that here.
Thanks.

No membership required, you just need 15 posts before putting up pictures and links.
Keeps spammers away.

I use Photobucket myself, pretty simple and there's a phone app to up load your pics easily if you take pictures with the phone.

For other pictures you can get the url and post it, Mozilla lets you right click and select
"copy image location" and then paste it into the forums.
