Re: Arkansas ride.

No VFR, superhawk VTR1000. You must have drank too much from the bottle labeled "Vodca".

Re: Arkansas ride.

Nice trip, humanrace! Arkansas 7 is amazing, and I love me some Petit Jean State Park!

Re: Arkansas ride.

Denny, AR is always a blast...not so sure I can do those temps. But best part of a ride is having good buddies with you. Good ride report. Glad you are all home safe & sound. See ya at the track.

Re: Arkansas ride.

You're right about the best part being the people you're with. It took 22 years for the 5 of us to all go on a ride together at the same time. We already have another planned for July in Colorado.

Re: Arkansas ride.

Great photos!!!

I love riding up there, great thread. Just feel obliged to mention HWY 123, especially the section east of Jasper down to HWY 16. Amazing and a must ride.

And our 1980 850 Yamaha triple, complete with Samsonite luggage, also along the trail.


On Sunday we rode the shore of lake Ouachita and that's the way we headed going to the trail. We rode 270 to 88 and the closer we got to Mena, the better the roads became. From Mena to 259, the good riding is continuous. I highly recommend the Talimena Trail. Our total mileage on the bikes was close to 1200 miles.
