I, like, Larry, find that I'm not too close to you either. Without getting too technical I find I'm, roughly, 12,000 miles away as the crow flies.  But we've got some really great roads around here if you ever find yourself close by stop on in!

Congrats. Hope that dirt road ain't too bad when it rains.
Gettin' away from Gretchen is probably worth the inconvenience you'll have during the short time of getting things fixed.
But to answer your question, I'm not near either. I'm 461 miles away as the crow walks.

You're about 30 miles west to Mo-125 and 45 miles south to Push Mountain Road. Two of my favorite roads in the world, plus tons of other great roads all around you.
You're also right next to Bull Shoals, probably the most beautiful lake in Missouri.
Good choice.

Well now I've gone and done it.  (mostly... just a couple of loose ends to complete to make it official)

Been a while since I've visited here... I think the last time I did, I was complaining about the abject
misery of Michigan winters and looking to find a place in Tennessee. And now, with the general political
situation, covid plandemic, relationship issues (but still on friendly terms) and a desire to have a place
I can call my own, I am buying a cute lil' house. (as my daughter calls it after looking at the listing for
the property) And it is far away from Michigan.

A smallish house that needs a little bit of fixing before it can be occupied... (it needs a septic system
which will not be a big problem) I got it for pretty cheap considering that cute lil' house is sitting on
11 wooded acres with the nearest neighbor a good 1/3 mile away as the crow flies. (not counting all
the democrat voters sleeping down under the grass in the field across the street until the Lord comes
calling  )

Secluded it is, but the little town of Gainesville Missouri is only about 2.5 miles away... and it holds a
surprising array of businesses and services that serve the large and mostly rural area. Branson MO is
about 43 miles to the west (as the crow flies) or 62 miles by road.

The other bit about this is that my younger brother is moving down here as well. The plan for that is
for him to build a little cabin for himself and his dogs on the property... eventually. (since he is not too
keen with the idea of living under the notion of "my castle, my rules" kind of scenario.) He's not in the
best of shape and is retiring on a small SS income, so he could use my help, but he can help me around
the place in return. The idea there is to set the place up for some degree of self sufficiency. (gardening
and maybe raising some chickens and/or Guinea fowl.)

So I'll be busy this spring getting the place into shape but I'll take breaks from that from time to time
for riding the roads and exploring the area around my new (to me) home.

(I wonder if any members here are in the general vicinity... that would be good to know)

Welcome to the forum.
You might want to get one of these for your Bullet.

Welcome from Athens, Greece.
I switched to scoots some years back and haven't regretted it.

Oh, BTW, if you don't post a few pictures we talk bad about you.  

I don't want my ears burning!

Here's a pic of the Helix. It's a pic from the dealer, I am driving it the 90 miles home in a week or two, and I can get better pics. I will be looking for the factory low back grab rail (at a decent price) as well as possibly another seat. It's not that I won't appreciate the Utopia backrest on longer rides, but for tooling around town, I like the clean look of the stock seat and rear grab rail.

As for the Reflex, It's in my garage with a bunch of the plastic pulled off of it. It had sat for 3 years, and the carb needed pulled. What a pain in the a$$ to get to it! Once I get that running, I'll post pics as well.
