Trasco Trading Post:
The Combat vets put on a event at Trasco Trading Post Motorcycle Shop. Dyreck and I went.
Trasco is past Herber Springs so it was a 270 mile round trip. Great ride. The Trading Post is quite interesting.
Located in the middle of no where. They had lots of motorcycle stuff for sale. a repair shop and bikes for sale.
Hot Dogs were served and proceeds went to help the Vets. A great place to ride to if you have the time.
