What percentage of the trip will be paved versus dirt? Thanks for organizing this. Mike

It will be what ever you want. Some folks will be looking for as much dirt as possible and others just looking for twisty pavement. Others in between. Unlike the other Texas Adventure company rides where there is a separate Ride Guide with defined routes available for purchase, this one will be done more with some potential roads to explore and we will try to get like minded and similar skill riders together in small groups (3-5). Experience has shown us that mother nature likes to mess with any fixed routes for Arkansas. Too many rivers rise or trees fall or bridges wash out. So we keep this as a low registration fee, not much more than the cost of the shirt and we all try to have fun.

We'll compare notes after the first day of riding and see what people found that was rideable and what wasn't. That will help plan the second day of riding.

I may have missed this Richard so forgive me if I did.

FYI, I called the Days Inn to check rooms. I was given a room rate of $64 for 2 queen beds. While talking to the lady she told me that if "We" get 4 rooms or more then it is $46 a night. I told here that it was a group of riders from Texas and she told me that there was a group offer for "Us". I reserved two rooms for $46 a night. I think a single was $42 a night.

Just thought I would pass it on.

I'm in. Need some things to fill in some of this extra time I find myself with now. In fact, I am heading to Montana and Colorado in a few weeks. Don't know when I will be back in NC. I may just be heading back when this thing rolls around in Sept. It will be good to see and ride with you folks again.

This looks promising...I may take the road bike for this rally. It has quite some time since I have been in north Arkansas...home to some of the best areas to "dance with curves" in the US.

I stayed in this inn a few years ago with the ST Owners rally. The inn is located just behind the adult movie store...really.

Playing with Garmin recently, I generated four possible routes for the Clarkesville gathering.

Are these routes good options for a bit of terrain diversity and ample curves?

I think I can do that. Looks like I'll be trailering up on Friday and back on Monday. If everything works out.

Is anyone trailering up from Austin or San Antonio with an extra spot on their trailer for a bike? I need a bike transported.

What bike? I think Tricepilot and I have planned to go together and use his trailer. I don't know how big his trailer is, but it will have two BMW GSA's in it. The fattest bike made...wait it's just wide in the chest area...so it is the most endowed bike. If we are still going up together, you might want to ping him to see if he'll have space.

Ah, so you are going to make part of the ride? We can talk on Saturday. I'm going to try and make it to Milton's lunch.

Hmm, I guess I need to learn to read a calendar. That may mean I can't make it. Cool about Uncle riding the vstrom.
