    This week is Bikefest at the Lake of the Ozarks. Be warned that the dam bridge is closed - only one way in and out of the strip; NO parking in center third lane (where most bikes park - organizers didn't file for parking permit); colors, patches, weapons are all going to have minor difficulties (I suggest put your vest in the saddlebags). Otherwise, come and enjoy our beautiful roads and weather.

    Little update - Center parking will be allowed. Mayor got emergency permit. I guess they got to thinking of the poor tow truck drivers who would have to tow bikes.

    I've always wanted to make this one I Missouri and the Blue and BBQ rally in Arkansas. I hear they're beautiful parts of the country.

    @Baldhead_J .... you would love the Ozark region... Southern Mo, Northern Arkansas and the most southern area of Illinois is beautiful and great riding.
    Here's a website that covers a lot of the region;

    Or get their ass beat trying.....to many bikes to try to tow in addition to creating a traffic jam.

    If you do get a hold of me...this is where I am building house and moving to. I love this riding and the people (locals) are great friendly and helpful. This year house is full but if need be we can fold our sofas...

    New update: Beside getting permit for center paring, cars and trucks will be prohibited on the strip during Bikefest. This will make parking and riding the hairpin easier with dam road closed.

    Not a beer drinker but if you make it here we will share adult beverages, while telling stories of life...

    Also hoping to be close to finishing the build. Right now I take advantage of my brother in law house. It is a million dollar view for sure.

    IMG_3276.jpg leading home from the weekend...song playing was everyone needs a hand to hold on to.
    Even though I never made it to any of the events it was great to actually enjoy one of the reason I am moving here (the riding) . Hoping next year I can almost be a full timer.
