    Big byway here, Ozarks:)

    Another of the guy at work, in the road, heading nowhere fast. I think I scared him into seclusion, kind a neat trait of turtle world, before they get run down! Not me. Randy

    Randy, you see many of those little "box" turtles here. It is a good indication that it's about to rain...they start seeking high ground.

    On a group ride last summer a friend on an RT hit one..almost missed it, but shot it like a hockey puck- It easily went the length of a football field!

    Ouch!

    Don't think I want to hit one, may be me flying from bike, although I outwiegh it a 1000 to one. I did see maybe a dozen turtles or so coming through there and no rain and one mean snake crossing the road too. I stopped for the snake too, but we kept our respective distance, looked poisonous. I sure liked the ride, crossing the USA and Ozarks.

    Oark:)

    That pic just above is within a mile of Oark,Arkansas. Nice tree canopy byway. Not many travel this one, or at least that day I was all alone a while. Of course, so many BMWs will be there very soon, mid July, you won't be able to turn a corner without seeing one. The GSGiant(pre rally) kicks off very nearby Oark, via Ian's plans. Sunday night, I believe. RandyGSA1200

    Nice:)

    This cutoff goes to Oark from the West. I liked the sign, gets to the point. So much of this in that area, great roads to almost nowhereville. This paved one led in and all dirt ones leading out the far end for me. Like.
