June 7-10 Ozark Mountain RAT Raid (TRIUMPH)

The 2018 Ozark Mountain Rat Raid will be June 7-10. Registration is usually $40 per person. The registration got you some swag and dinner on Saturday night. And alot of door prizes..!
It will be at the HUB in Harrison Arkansas, which is a motorcycle hotel and diner. You can stay there or in Harrison at one of the local hotels.

Last year my wife, Jennifer, and I were the only ones from Texas. This year I would like to have a large group from Texas. I am asking every Triumph owner in the North Texas area to join me for some fantastic riding in the Ozark Mountains. If you have never been there, then you are missing the crown jewel of mountain riding and scenery. The roads are fantastic and the people are very friendly.

Last year I had to buy two extra bags to mount to my bike to get home with all of the door prizes that I won. We absolutely had a blast..even with the rain we experienced.

This year I will be going up on Friday and riding back on Sunday morning. Again I am inviting everyone from North Texas to join me in representing Texas at this years Raid.

If you are interested, email me at dohertycm8251@gmail.com . I will keep in touch with everyone...via Facebook or email... and keep you posted on when the registration becomes active and a list of who all will be riding from Texas.

For the Ride!

Chris

Sounds somewhat interesting. How dirty is this event (you did post it in the dual sport section)?

Well it can be dirty if you want to choose a dual sport trail to ride. There are a bunch of trails in the area. But want to generate interest in the Tiger community..

Re: June 7-10 Ozark Mountain RAT Raid (TRIUMPH)

Miles and miles of primitive gravel and dirt roads to ride in this area. I live 30 miles north of The Hub.

And the road riding is the best in the Midwest region!

The Rat Raid has started its registration. The hotel this year will be the Quality Inn in Harrison Arkansas.

Some of the best roads in the area are here in the Ozarks.. If you have a Triumph come join us!
