Well my wife and I will be departing on our first 8 day trike trip this week. We will meet friends,who will be on their GL 1800 trike as well. We will ride from Waxahachie, TX to Midwest City, OK and meet with our friends from Kansas there. We will then ride the next day to Branson and spend a couple of days there on day rides and sight seeing. We will then travel to Fayetteville, AR for the kickoff of the BBB bike Rally. We will stay a day there and then head back out on the Arkansas "Pig Trail" and ride South down through the mountains (Really Big Hills) of Arkansas and Oklahoma. We will stop in Durant, OK for the last night and will split there and return to our respective homes. Both of us have had long day rides getting ready but we have never been out this long. We have the trikes and trailers ready and looking forward to going. We have a lot to learn so we will see how it goes!
