July 4th 2020 Arkansas ride

Kevin stated that he would like to do a trip from Huntsville Alabama to Arkansas on the 4th of July 2020. I asked if he minded if I posted it here in case anyone else cares to join.

He has hotel points he wants to use, but ironically I use a different hotel chain so it may be an instance of ride to the area together, meet somewhere in the mornings each morning.

If anyone is in the area or would like to join we can fully develop a community plan. As of now it is just a goal.

Arkansas has a free guide to good motorcycle routes in the state with most being loops of one kind or another. I've only done one trip there but the roads and scenery were great. I don't recall where I wrote for the M/C road guide but I'm sure you could find it on the state website. If each person interested in this trip had one planning might be easier.
Ride safe.

Thanks for the reminder.. I did verify that I had previously added this to the knowledge sharing document (Trip Planning tab) along side some other gems for planning MC rides.

There was one time.... it was crazy awesome!

I'm going to see if this fits my schedule. I've been planning a similar trip for about a year. Here are a few helpful websites:
Free Motorcycle Ride Maps for Arkansas and Missouri | Scenic Tours, Road Descriptions, Motorcycle-Friendly Destinations | Plan your next Ozarks motorcycle trip with Cruise the Ozarks, the #1 Motorcyclist's Guide to Riding in the Ozark Mountains
www.eurekasprings.org
www.experiencefayetteville.com
www.hotsprings.org
www.motorcyclearkansas.com
www.arkansas.com/motorcycling


For what it's worth, Harrison, AR has been marketing itself as a motorcycle friendly city and a hub for motorcycle touring. Many of the routes work well using Harrison as the starting place.

Great riding areas, been there many times from SW Kansas. Eureka Springs is a great place to stay also. The KOA is nice if your into the Kamping Kabins. We like to stay in Koas around the country, or they have some great motels also.

It will probably be very warm and humid that time of the year though.

Hello to all. Troy mentioned the Arkansas trip I was trying to plan in July. Well I just found out yesterday that my wife is on call the 4th of July weekend....so I'm having to change the date. I'm leaning more towards May 16,15,17 but June 26,27,28 is open also.
And staying in a hotel In a area with good food options where everyone is happy can be discussed also.

If anybody is interested I'll ask again in April or first of May to see what dates would be better for those guys that are interested.

Ps she's on call meet up in the mountains weekend too. I'm almost ready to trade her in or ask her to get another job..🏽

Have a nice evening.

I'm in SW Missouri, so if the event takes place and makes it's way near Eureka Springs, I would very likely be able to attend.

I'm in mid MO and wouldn't mind seeing more of ARK. Nothing on my dance card for either time right now so I'll be watching for future updates for time and location.
