Swimming

Post by cateyetech » Wed Jul 26, 2017 12:17 am

It's the hot time of year here in Arkansas :evil:
so the last two Saturday evenings Kofi the K9 monkey and I went on a 100km (exactly 100km, weird?) ride to the middle fork of the Illinois Bayou
https://www.arkansas.com/river/illinois-bayou/6 for a little swim :boogie:
We headed out about 5pm so we could ride in the shade :D and returned home a little after 9pm (dark30)
The water was flowing good the first time but last Saturday the water level was down so we may not get to go this weekend :(

We had a great time swimming and exploring along the creek :D
Then we had a snack :hungry: crackers, cheese and slim jims :lol: with orange soda :wink:
VIRB0016.JPG

Then we explored ALL the swimming holes along Middle Fork Road!!!!!! :boogie:

Then a nice cool? ride home :D

Notice all the spots on the fender?
Then look at Kofi's mouth :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

He's one of the many reasons we got Daisy our Ural :D
I do ride this rig solo a lot during my commuting but I TRY to always have someone (even K9"s) in the tub another time :)
Kofi and I go on potty :bs: rides every evening :wub: :moto:

Hope you and yourn enjoy ya'lls rig as much as we do :cheers:

Yes he is camo too :lol:

When we were looking for a rig in our price range ALL the camo (GU's) were $1000 higher
so when my friend said he found us a rig, I said "what color" :lol:
he said camo, I said "how much!!!" :lol: :lol: :lol:
It a real process to match the paint :lol:
so after I made a new horn bracket I just painted it yellow :lol: :lol: :lol:

I can't see us on any other color and it's opposite so I guess we're stuck with this one :wub:
