Cool Ozarks Tuesday 7/11-Thursday 7/13

Hey Guys,

Looks like I'm driving up to OK to pick up a new R1. Seems it would be a shame not to make the short drive east to the Ozarks for a couple of days of break in miles, before I track the bike. Pig Trail, Arkansas Dragon, Hwy 7...all look irresistible. I'll probably be solo with such short notice, but if you have any experience up there that may be helpful, please chime in. I'm currently looking to base in the Springdale area, probably at a chain hotel like Residence Inn. May ride Friday, too, if I can get away with it.

I normally stay in Eureka Springs, cheap lodging because of all the hotels in the area, and the roads up there are incredible. Pig trail and Hwy 7 will have more traffic than most roads in the area, never heard of the Arkansas Dragon, which road is that?

Thanks, Tex. How scarce are gas stations out there? That R1 is a thirsty girl...

You might want to check out the HUB motel. Caters to motorcycles and real friendly owners.

Looks like a classic motorcycle dive...with good food on weekends. Thanks for the tip.

23 The Pig Trail is ok...... look at a map and just a few miles east is 21. Much better road IMO and less traffic. Push Mountain Road is fantastic (341) and depending where you stay. MO 125 Through the Mark Twain Nat. Forrest (north of 160) is a definate must ride. You can pick up 125 at Peel AR. and take the free ferry across Bull Shoals Lake to MO. 125 dead end on 160, go west a few miles then bam 125 North is baby butt smooth black top with great high speed turns and trees over the road.

Well, I managed to put 640 Ozark mountain miles on the new R1 in two days. Did get up into MO for a bit...Mark Twain NF. Rode the AR Dragon, and many other challenging twisties. All in all, a great place to break in a new bike.

Hmm....tried all I know to post images from photobucket, but that site is super slow today, and I'm not sure why the pics won't post here-only links. Anyone know a better free photo host?
