Arkansas is a great state to ride in.

I need to get back over there and find some more roads unexplored. :)

I've been to AR on a mc just once. The plan was to Ride from Harrison for three days but constant rain expected drove most of us home after only one night there.
I'm thinking maybe this year I'd better plan on trying it again as I'm not getting any younger. It will probably be a 'spare-of-the-moment' kinda thing when the weather is nice. Stay 4-5 days...

Please make one of the trips to our Labor Day weekend rally in Eureka Springs, AR.

Lots of good riding around Eureka Springs, and a lot of good folks to sit around and jaw with.

The COVID-19 virus should be a dim memory by then :evil:

We've hit several of those roads in and around the Ozark and Ouachita National Forests. They are really nice rides.

We don't have anything planned for this Spring. We're holding out for our biggest ride so far, which will be to the Grand Canyon this Fall.

Thanks for the 'heads-up' John.
My reservations are in for the four nights.
Marty (the fella I talked to to make the reservations) was a real personable guy. He thanked me for my reservation and said they were loking forward to have the group there.

Not a Spring ride, but a few years ago I did a meetup with a scooter group (Maxi-Scoots.com) riding that area roads for the better part of a week. A great bunch of people and great roads. They are going back this September 8-13, using the Harrison area as a base. Any and all are welcome, regardless of what you ride. A diverse group of riders (and bikes) from all over that meet up at a different location each year to experience great riding, great scenery, great(subjective) food, and great company with like minded riders. Come for as long or little as you like. More details @ maxi-scoots.com, if interested in finding out more.
