Going On First Long Ride

(East Texas)

Okay I've posted before about getting my bike, and my excitement, but now I get to post about passing my MSF course a little over a month ago and our ride we are about to take.

Hubby and I are taking a 3 day trip to Arkansas, going to ride the Talimena Trail and do some sight seeing, I am so excited!!! This will be the first long trip so far for me, I've enjoyed several 100-200 mile rides in a day but I'm looking forward to this one. I'll let you all know how it goes.

First Long Ride
by: Jenny

Hope you enjoy your trip to Arkansas and Oklahoma. Talimena Drive is beautiful. Not sure I will ever have the nerve to attempt it but more power to you. Rode it a couple times on the back of my husband's bike and it was awesome. Going to Sturgis this year but again on the back of a bike. Maybe one day I'll be able to get out there on my own but still practice for me. Wish I were more like all of you that seem to just go for it. This 118 heat index in Oklahoma makes it hard to get out there on a daily basis to practice. Be safe, enjoy your ride. Wish it were me on my own.

I'm so Jealous!
by: Sandra

Hubby and I got our endorsements back in May; he's planning a TENTATIVE trip to Sturgis NEXT year (2011)...STURGIS? Really? First trip to a totally chaotic mass of metal and rumble???

I'd rather take a leisurely vacation trip as our first road trip, like yours. We're headed to Smokey Mountains in a couple of weeks - but he would not even consider such a trip on the bikes... :( ...although that may be a good thing - I have difficulty on those mountain roads and hairpin turns in our stick shift car - that would definitely be a learning experience on a bike...with our daughter...

Anyway, have a GREAT trip!
