Five days and counting.
I added the GPS routes in the Members Only GPS section.
It's a zip file containing a gdb, gpx and 4 pictures of the written route. It's still a pretty big file so if someone wants only 1 or the other I can send it.
I've been on a lot of these roads at one time or the other and they are all good. Plus they are not the ones we would normally ride.
Lunch is at the War Eagle Mill which is south of Eureka Springs to give you a general idea and the routes are one from the south and one from the north.
If you have never ridden highway 90 in Missouri and thru Roaring River state park it's one of my favorite ones when going anywhere in Northeast Arkansas.
If anyone has any questions just let me know. I'm not leaving out until sometime fairly late Friday afternoon so it will be pretty close to dark before I get in but I'll be there.
It's been raining here but I can't leave until probably 1-2pm so I'll look at radar and take the best route.
I-44 to Tulsa and over or I-40 over and up 123 at Clarksville. They are both about the same.
I'm home from T-24. New location while not as "ritzy" as the old locaton was very bike friendly and there was camping, hotel, restaurant on site. There were even rooms not occupied by the MSTA but other motorcyclists were there for there own weekend away.
Didn't leave home until 3pm and it was still raining but I knew if I went I-40 I'd get out from under it pretty quick. First 50 miles was rain then just overcast. Shortly after I finally got to the twisties it started to mist and get dark. 7 deer later my run up 123 from Clarksville to Pelsor wasn't great but wasn't bad either. However my run from Pelsor to the Hub got worse as it got darker it started raining more and while it's only around 30 miles the last 10 I swear took 30 minutes. I do not do dark and rain well. I arrived safe and sound shortly before 9pm. Cookout was over but hotel staff was looking for me and while I checked in they went and found Bill. Becky had some cooked hotdogs in the fridge along with buns and chips. Raided the coolers for ketchup and diet coke. With the aid of my in room microwave I managed a workable dinner along with a little Maker's Mark in my diet coke I was in for the night. There were a few still up in the game room but most had called it a night when it started raining and they couldn't set around the camp fire bs'ing.
Saturday dawned with questionable weather but a look at radar indicated it was south of us and moving north east past us. So most took off for the northern route and it turned off to be a fabulous day and War Eagle Mill was an interesting lunch stop. Ride back to the Hub was overcast and really threatening to rain at any moment but it never found me at least. So arrived back at the hotel in time to clean up and visit with a lot of the group.
Banquet Saturday night was outstanding and there were a few can's of Honda spray and a few t-shrits given away plus we had a 50/50 for Ride for Kids.
Sunday dawned sunny and beautiful and everyone started heading for home. So another almost 1k has been added to the bike this weekend. Needs a bath before heading back that way next weekend to the Huck's Road & Track.
Thanks to Bill and Becky for once again putting on a fantastic rally including an event T-shirt. Mark your calendars for same weekend same place next year.
We also had a great time - a big "Thank You" to Becky and Bill Wing for all their hard work.
We managed to ride all three days without even a sprinkler, great weather and great roads. The folks at the Hub are exceptionally nice and the banquet dinner was really great food.
